Research Interests of the United States Air Force Academy -- USAFA-BAA-2015

Funding Agency:
Department of Defense

USAFA’s Research Laboratory is announcing to business and academia the intent to solicit proposals for USAFA research efforts through this BAA.  This strategy provides USAFA an acquisition tool with the flexibility to solicit proposals and make awards to develop technologies to meet present and future Air Force research needs as technology issues are identified.  USAFA invites White papers and proposals for research in many broad areas. These areas are described in detail in Section I, Funding Opportunity Description.  Additional information regarding USAFA Research Centers, Departments and Institutes may be found at

USAFA is seeking unclassified research White papers and proposals that do not contain proprietary information.  Requests for White papers/proposals are also transmitted via calls which may be published separately from the BAA at various times during the open period of the BAA (note:  the first Call may be published with the BAA).

This announcement remains open until superseded.  White papers and proposals are reviewed and evaluated as they are received and may be submitted at any time; however, there is an initial preference for White papers over full applications/proposals.  The White paper submission process is discussed in sections IV and V of this BAA.  Proposals will be due according to specific instructions contained in a separate Request for Proposal (RFP) notice resulting from favorable White paper evaluations or calls issued against this BAA.  Calls may be placed against this BAA and specific information related to due dates will be provided in each call.  The calls may also include specific terms which apply to the call such as further technical details, cut-off date for White paper and/or proposal submission and any pertinent clauses, such as available Government Furnished Property (GFP) or specific Organizational Conflict of Interest (OCI) requirements.  Proposals or White papers submitted in response to calls should be submitted according to directions contained within each individual call and in accordance with this BAA.  Late bid and proposal provisions (in accordance with (IAW) Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) 52.215-1(c) (3)) will apply to this BAA.
