The Navy has developed a new approach to engage non-traditional technology solution providers with Naval needs.
This new Naval Accelerator Pilot opportunity, known as Accelerated Delivery and Acquisition of Prototype Technologies (ADAPT) will be in the form of an out-of-cycle BAA that will contain 6 direct-to-Phase II (DP2) topics aligned to address naval challenges in the ship building community. The ADAPT BAA is scheduled to be pre-released soon. Keep monitoring the Navy's SBIR website at https://navysbir.com
In response to this pilot, the Navy will be hosting an ADAPT workshop which will take place in Lowell, MA on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 with additional one-on-one meetings available on the 11th.
The Workshop will include an introduction to the ADAPT pilot, technology briefs on the topics, discussion on the proposal process and contracting, and an opportunity for one-on-one discussions with subject matter experts.
Registration is required and will open Friday, March 15, 2019. More information available at: www.onlineregistrationcenter.com/ADAPT
