- Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR)
AFOSR continues to expand the horizon of scientific knowledge through its leadership and management of the Air Force's basic research program. As a vital component of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), AFOSR's mission is to support Air Force goals of control and maximum utilization of air, space, and cyberspace.
As a part of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), AFOSR's technical experts foster and fund research within AFRL, universities, and industry laboratories to ensure the transition of research results to support USAF needs.
To accomplish this task, AFOSR solicits proposals for research through various Broad Agency Announcements (BAAs) as well as other programs which can be found here.
- US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC)
The United States Army Medical Research and Development Command (USAMRDC) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is a competitive solicitation procedure intended to solicit extramural research and development ideas. It is issued under the provisions of the Competition in Contracting Act (CICA) of 1984 (Public Law 98-369),* as implemented in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and in DoD Grant and Agreement Regulations (DoDGAR).
The USAMRDC BAA provides a general description of the USAMRDC's research and development programs, including: research areas of interest; general information; evaluation and selection criteria; and proposal/application preparation instructions. Research funded through the USAMRDC BAA is intended and expected to benefit and inform both military and civilian medical practice and knowledge. Research proposals/applications are sought from national, international, for-profit, non-profit, public, and private organizations. The USAMRDC BAA is a continuously open announcement; pre-proposals/pre-applications and proposals/applications may be submitted at any time throughout the 5-year period.
- Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
Established in 1958 as part of the U.S. Department of Defense, DARPA pursues opportunities for transformational change rather than incremental advances. It does so collaboratively as part of a robust innovation ecosystem that includes academic, corporate, and governmental partners. To fulfill its mission, the Agency relies on diverse performers from throughout this ecosystem to apply multi-disciplinary approaches to both advance knowledge through basic research and create innovative technologies that address current and predicted practical problems through applied research.
- Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)
DTRA funds research to support DTRA’s mission to safeguard America and its allies from WMD (e.g., chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high yield explosives) by providing capabilities to reduce, eliminate, and counter the threat and mitigate its effects. DTRA funds research across the technology spectrum from basic science to full scale technology development.
- Office of Naval Research (ONR)
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is constantly looking for innovative scientific and technological solutions that can address current and future Navy and Marine Corps requirements. We want to do business with people and organizations with ground-breaking ideas, pioneering scientific research, novel technology developments and first-class support services. ONR announces current areas of interest through Broad Agency Announcements, Funding Opportunity Announcements, Special Program Announcements, Requests for Proposal or Quote, Special Notices, Requests for Information and Seaport-e.
