  • At least 14 Department of Defense (DoD), other federal agencies and major military commands will participate with over 50 technology buyers – meeting these agencies individually around the US would take months
  • Lieutenant General Williamson, head of all acquisition, logistics and technology for the Army, will attend and speak
  • All DoD and federal agencies attending will announce their technology requirements, needs and programs in agency sessions
  • Businesses can meet one-on-one with all DoD and federal agency representatives in informal sessions
  • Businesses can learn about latest technology developments in their industries, network with industry and university technology developers and build relationships for future contracts
  • Businesses can exhibit, showcase and discuss their current products and services with over 55 military and government attendees
  • Businesses can meet NC resources available to help them compete for, win and successfully execute government technology contracts

All businesses in North Carolina are invited to participate, showcase or discuss their products and services with government attendees.  NCFATR panel sessions will focus on the following seven technology sectors – but businesses from all industry sectors will benefit from the NCFATR.

NIST 2015 SBIR Grants to Fund Research in Manufacturing, Clean Energy, Cybersecurity and Bioscience

From NIST Tech Beat: March 11, 2015

Contact: Jennifer Huergo
301-975-6343

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is offering to fund research projects that address specific challenges in the fields of advanced manufacturing, climate change and clean energy, cybersecurity, health care and bioscience.

The NIST SBIR program seeks to fuel technological innovation in the private sector by strengthening the role small business plays in meeting federal R&D needs and bringing to market innovations derived from federal research and development. The program also works to increase participation by socially and economically disadvantaged persons and women-owned small business concerns.

These SBIR “Phase I” awards are intended to determine if the proposed research is feasible, and to gauge how well the awardee performs that research. The awards can provide up to $100,000 over a performance period of seven months. Awardees that successfully complete their Phase I research projects will be eligible to apply for Phase II funding to develop the technology further.

The NIST 2015 SBIR solicitation names 15 specific technologies for development and an opportunity for technology development of commercially promising NIST-developed technologies.

In the category of Advanced Manufacturing, they include:

  • Category-Theoretic Tools to Support Manufacturing Information Integration
  • Computer Aided Standards Development (CASD) – A Software Tool to Automate Standards Development Process
  • High-Throughput Manufacturing Methods for Engineered MRI Contrast Agents
  • Laser Power Meter for Manufacturing Applications
  • Optical Microscopy as Applied to Fabrication of Atomic-Scale Devices
  • Predictive Modeling Tools for Metal-Based Additive Manufacturing
  • Stroboscopic Method for Dynamic Imaging in a Transmission Electron Microscope at GHz Frequencies
  • Tuning Germanium Crystal Reflectivity and Mosaic

In the category of Climate Change and Clean Energy, they include:

  • Large-Area, Uniform Infrared Detector Development for 1 μm to 4.5 μm

In the category of Cybersecurity, they include:

  • A Verifier for Multicore C11 or C++11 Code
  • Access Control Policy Tool
  • Analysis and Visualization Tools for Automated Email Abuse Reports
  • Improving Robustness and Security in Home Routers

In the category of Health Care and Bioscience, they include:

  • Dual Pulse Continuum Laser Source for Time-Domain Coherent Raman Imaging

In addition to the research areas above, NIST also is accepting proposals for further development of commercially promising technologies that have been developed at NIST. The Technology Partnerships Office at NIST will provide the awardee with a no-cost research license for the duration of the SBIR award. When the technology is ready for commercialization, a commercialization license will be negotiated with the awardee.

Applications may be submitted for the development of any NIST-owned technology that is covered by a pending U.S. non-provisional patent application or by an issued U.S. patent. Available technologies can be found on the NISTTech website.

In the interest of fair competition, communication with NIST concerning a specific technical topic or subtopic during the open solicitation period is not allowed, with the exception of the public discussion group on the SBIR website. All questions and responses will be publicly, though anonymously, posted on the discussion group website.

Read the 2015 SBIR proposal solicitation for a full explanation of the SBIR process, rules and the specific challenges the proposals should address. The solicitation is available at www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=275010.

NC Federal Advanced Technologies Review Announced

North Carolina companies solving the future advanced technology needs of the Department of Defense and other federal agencies

United States Senator Richard Burr, the North Carolina Military Business Center (NCMBC), North Carolina Military Foundation, University of North Carolina and the Institute for Defense and Business will host the 2015 North Carolina Federal Advanced Technologies Review at the McKimmon Conference & Training Center at North Carolina State University in Raleigh on June 2-3, 2015.

The Review will focus on the future advanced technology needs of the Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal agencies within the state. The objective of this Review is to establish dialogue between industry, academia and government and to form partnerships to address the future needs of the federal government to meet technology challenges ahead. Although all technologies are subject to discussion during the Review, the eight “Industry and Military Forums” will focus on the following technology sectors:

  • Advanced Materials & Manufacturing
  • Soldier Systems & Operational    Energy
  • Ground Vehicles, Unmanned Systems and Robotics
  • Biotechnologies and Biodefense
  • Medical Technologies
  • Cyber Security, Software and Advanced IT Systems
  • Human/Social Sciences/Cultural &    Behavioral Dynamics
  • C4ISR Hardware Systems

An expansion to this year’s program includes four additional topics: US Army & Air Force Challenge & Needs; Federal Agencies Challenges & Needs; US Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Challenges & Needs; and Small Business Contracting Technical & Funding. These additional Forums offer North Carolina companies the opportunity to sit in the same room with several DoD and other federal agency representatives to discuss the types of advanced technologies currently needed and future requirements. In order to be successful, it is critical for businesses in our state to know not only the current needs, but the future needs of the military in North Carolina.
