Next Generation Technologies Fund - Advanced Acoustic Materials Call for Proposals - December 2018
Show close time for other time zones
The development of advanced acoustic materials seeks to leverage acoustic science, materials science, integrated (multiscale) computational materials engineering (ICME), and novel manufacturing processes to develop new technology solutions of relevance to Defence. Advanced acoustic materials is a priority theme under the Next Generation Technologies Fund that seeks to drive technological advances in acoustic materials, which will lead to an increase in platform survivability and operational effectiveness through a reduction in platform signatures.
Proposals should consider a plan for (up to) 2.5 years research program in multiscale modelling of advanced acoustic materials. However, the proposal should consider a work program that will be split into two phases. Successful proposals will be funded for "Phase 1" (six months) and then re-assessed prior to commencement and funding of "Phase 2" (2 years) activities.
Further information available by emailing AdvancedMaterials@dst.defence.gov.au.
Applications will be submitted via Webform and will be assessed against the published evaluation criteria listed in the Call For Proposals document, by a panel of science, business and service domain experts. The Next Generation Technologies Fund Research Innovation Contract will be used to contract successful applicants. Ongoing and regular project management will ensure that the projects progress in the contract.
Technology created in Stage 2 has the potential to transition into a variety of innovation support schemes for further maturation, e.g. Defence Innovation Hub.
This opportunity is open, subject to security considerations to registered Australian businesses only.
Universities must be a party to a Defence Partnering (DSP) program.
Industry agreements shall be entered into under the Next Generation Technologies Fund Research Contract.
