DoD RFI Asks for Tech-Enabled Concepts to Keep Military Advantage

PentagonThe Defense Department has asked for information on existing and future technologies that could help the U.S. military build an advantage in combat under the Long-Range Research and Development Plan.

DoD said Wednesday in a notice posted on FedBizOpps that it is looking for potential payload, platform and network investments in support of the Defense Innovation Initiative to bolster U.S. power projection and long-term security through 2030.

The RFI focuses on “disruptive” technology-enabled concepts and capabilities that would provide a competitive advantage to DoD amid emerging non-traditional or non-state threat actors, stricter budgets and technology globalization, the notice stated.

DoD says it will consider relatively mature technologies with new applications, emerging technologies with the capability to mature within 10 years or non-defense technologies that can be repurposed for military applications.

Technology areas include space, undersea, air and missile defense, and air dominance and strike operations.

The agency will accept responses from the private sector through Jan. 14.

Responses should indicate the operational opportunity, the technology and the proposed methods for deployment, DoD said.
