Army posts call for proposals for SUMIT research effort
On January 3, the U.S. Army issued a call for proposals for the Synergistic Unmanned Manned Intelligent Teaming (SUMIT) Simulation Evaluations research effort (Solicitation Number: W911W6-17-R-0004). White paper responses are due on or before February 6, 2017. The government anticipates transmitting requests for full proposals on or about February 28, 2017. Full proposals are due on or before March 31, 2017.
The Aviation Development Directorate – Aviation Applied Technology Directorate (ADD/AATD), ATTN: CCAM-RDT, Building 401, Lee Boulevard, Fort Eustis, VA 23604-5577 is issuing this Special Notice as a Call for proposals soliciting autonomy, decision aiding and human-machine interface (HMI) technologies for the Synergistic Unmanned Manned Intelligent Teaming (SUMIT) Simulation Evaluations research effort under the Master Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) W911W6-16-R-0004.
SUMIT is a 6.3 Advanced Technology Development science and technology program in the U. S. Army’s Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center’s (AMRDEC) Aviation Development Directorate (ADD). This research effort will integrate candidate technologies provided by each selected offeror in a common Government-owned simulation environment using a common set of operational scenarios and conduct a series of user evaluations with a common set of evaluation metrics. The intent is to gather simulation data, user observations and assess evaluation metrics related to situational awareness, mission effectiveness, workload, and usability in an airborne battlefield environment for each offeror’s autonomy, decision aiding and HMI technologies.
