Department of Defense - Benet Laboratories Broad Agency Announcement for Basic and Applied Scientific Research for Fiscal Years 2011 through 2016

Synopsis:
BL has a long-standing mission in the development of cannon and other component technologies. These weapon systems and components are now in use in several active theaters. In support of this long-standing mission and the Army’s Brigade Combat Team (BCT) Modernization Initiative, BL is interested in technologies that will extend the life, enhance lethality, reduce weight, lessen the logistical burden, reduce the signature of these systems, and cost reductions. The USACC - Picatinny, BLCC solicits proposals for the following: (1) manufacturing and fabricating components for weapon systems; (2) modeling, simulation, design, manufacturing, and field support of components for weapon systems; and (3) other approaches, technologies, planning, scheduling etc. which may not be explicitly mentioned but which help provide our Nation’s leadership with versatile ground force capabilities with applicability across the spectrum of operations, and with the institutional agility to both anticipate emerging challenges and the ability to rapidly adapt.

This BAA is a continuously open announcement valid throughout the period from the date of issuance through 31 July 2016.
