Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Request for Proposals
Pre-Proposal Deadline: January 15th, 2014
Full Proposal Deadline: June 2, 2014
The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) is pleased to announce the development of the GoMRI Request for Proposals for 2015-2017 GoMRI Research Consortia. The purpose of the 2015-2017 GoMRI Research Consortia RFP, to be released in mid-November 2013, is to select the research activities for GoMRI Years 5–7 (1 January 2015–31 December 2017) involving Research Consortia, defined as a contractual arrangement between a PI and co-PIs at four or more institutions. The total funds available for distribution to Research Consortia through the 2015-2017 GoMRI Research Consortia RFP will be approximately $35 million per year. A RFP for individual and small research group investigations will be forthcoming in late 2014.
MIIA2013 – The Make it in America Challenge:
Application Deadline: May 31st, 2013
The United States faces great competition to retain and attract industries of the future and the jobs they will create. The Obama Administration’s top priority is strengthening the economy and creating American jobs. To lay a foundation for an economy built to last, the Administration believes it is important to provide support for: Foreign businesses to bring new production into the United States; U.S. companies to return previously off-shored operations to the United States; and all companies doing business in the U.S. to keep and expand their production here. The United States offers significant competitive advantages – from a strong business climate, to a highly-skilled and productive workforce – that make it a profitable place for businesses to invest. Investing in businesses and production here can help put more Americans back to work. Some of the ways in which the Administration has already helped American workers and businesses thrive include enhancing the general business climate, securing access to markets for U.S. exports, providing financial and technical support for companies to grow and expand, providing funding to improve education and training opportunities to develop a skilled workforce, and enforcing global trade rules to ensure that American businesses and workers are competing on a level playing field.

HQ0147-13-ATI-BAA - Advanced Technology Innovation (ATI) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA)
MDA requests white papers from competent U.S. entities, which include, but are not limited to, industry, national laboratories, universities, and university-affiliated research and
development centers. The primary areas MDA is considering include: (1) new technology, architecture, framework or concepts that significantly improve performance for a next generation, airborne, directed energy component of the ballistic missile defense architecture, and (2) characterization of the high-altitude, low-Mach environment for high power laser propagation and platform operation. Mission areas of interest include, but are not limited to, tracking, ranging, discrimination and early intercept.
This announcement remains open until superseded. Proposals are reviewed and evaluated as they are received. While proposals overall may be submitted at any time, specific topic instructions may recommend proposal submission by specific dates IAW anticipated funding.
AFOSR plans, coordinates, and executes the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) basic research program in response to technical guidance from AFRL and requirements of the Air Force; fosters, supports, and conducts research within Air Force, university, and industry laboratories; and ensures transition of research results to support U.S. Air Force needs.
The focus of AFOSR is on research areas that offer significant and comprehensive benefits to our national warfighting and peacekeeping capabilities. These areas are organized and managed in five scientific Departments: Dynamical Systems and Control (RTA), Quantum and Non-Equilibrium Processes (RTB), Information, Decision and Complex Networks (RTC), Complex Materials and Devices (RTD), and Energy, Power and Propulsion (RTE). The research activities managed within each Department are summarized in this section.
FY 2013 Environmental Studies Program
Application due date: February 28th, 2013; 5:00 pm EDT
The BOEM manages the exploration and development of the nation’s offshore resources. The bureau seeks to balance economic development, energy independence, and environmental protection through oil and gas leases, renewable energy development and environmental reviews and studies. Section 1346 of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) mandates the conduct of environmental and socioeconomic studies needed for the assessment and management of environmental impacts on the human, marine, and coastal environments which may be affected by oil and gas or other mineral development. OCSLA Section 1345 authorizes the use of cooperative agreements with affected States to meet the requirements of OCSLA, including sharing of information, joint utilization of available expertise, formation of joint monitoring arrangements to carry out applicable Federal and State laws, regulations, and stipulations relevant to outer continental shelf operations both onshore and offshore. This announcement is specifically to announce intent to undertake the following two projects only: COSEE Support to the Environmental Studies Programs Education and Outreach Efforts (University of Rhode Island via the North Atlantic Coast Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU)) and Applications for Mapping Spilled Oil in Arctic Waters (University of Alaska Fairbanks via the North and Western Alaska Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU)).

Research Interests of the United States Air Force Academy
Due Date: Open
The Air Force Academy invests in an active research program for three main reasons. First and foremost, research significantly enhances the cadet learning experience. Our research is done by, for and with cadets who work alongside fellow cadets and faculty mentors. Research provides cadets with rich independent learning opportunities as they tackle ill-defined problems and are challenged to apply their knowledge and abilities.Secondly, our research program provides opportunities for essential faculty development. Research broadens and deepens the experience base of the faculty. This infuses current, relevant, state-of-the-art and cutting-edge applications and examples into the curriculum. This also helps our faculty remain current in their respective fields.Third, at USAFA we strive to conduct research to enhance the ability of the Air Force to perform its mission. There are currently ongoing research projects spanning topics as diverse as super cooled cesium atoms, cyber security, spatial disorientation and homeland defense.
