Night Vision Technologies

Funding Agency:
Department of Defense

As "The Army's Sensor Developer," NVESD researches and develops cutting edge technology, with the goal of exceeding U.S. Soldier requirements, and allowing an asymmetrical advantage in changing battlefield environments. This BAA solicits proposals against a broad range of night vision technologies which support the Warfighter and challenges of Asymmetric Warfare. The technologies have been divided into three (3) sections: Science and Technology; Ground Combat Systems; and Modeling and Simulation. Guidance specific to each of those sections are included in Part II – Award Information. Overall instructions are included in Part IV – Application and Submission Information. Each of the three technology sections listed above has their own due dates which is detailed in Part II and Part IV.

A. SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY: Science and Technology (S&T) will not evaluate proposals for FY16. Beginning FY17, proposals will be evaluated two (2) times per year. These proposal submittal periods will close on 05 November and 12 August of each year. Evaluation will be conducted for those proposals received during the preceding proposal submittal period. Proposals received after an annual proposal closing date will be held for review for the next evaluation cycle within this BAA. 

B. GROUND COMBAT SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES: Proposals will be evaluated one (1) time per year. All annual proposal submittal periods will close on 8 October of each year and evaluation will be conducted for will consist of those proposals received during the preceding proposal submittal period. Proposals received after the annual proposal closing date will be held for review for the next evaluation cycle within this BAA.

C. MODELING AND SIMULATION: Proposals will be evaluated three times during FY15. The proposal submittal periods will close on 3 December, 8 April and 5 August of each year and evaluation will be conducted for proposals received during the preceding proposal submittal period.

D. AIR SYSTEMS: Proposals will be evaluated one (1) time per year. The proposal submittal periods will close on 6 November of each year and evaluation will be conducted for will consist of those proposals received during the preceding proposal submittal period. Proposals received after the annual proposal closing date will be held for review for the next evaluation cycle within this BAA.

E. INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES: Proposals will be evaluated two (2) times per year. The proposal submittal periods will close on 30 March and 15 August of each year and evaluation will be conducted for proposals received during the preceding proposal submittal period.
