Additional Information on Eligibility: All responsible sources from academia, industry and the research community worldwide may submit proposals under this Special Notice. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs) are encouraged to submit proposals and join others in submitting proposals. However, no portion of this Special Notice will be set aside for HBCUs/MIs, small businesses or other socio-economic participation. All businesses, both small and large, are encouraged to submit proposals and compete for funding consideration.Federally Funded Research & Development Centers (FFRDCs), including Department of Energy National Laboratories, are not eligible to receive awards under this Special Notice. However, teaming arrangements between FFRDCs and eligible principal Offerors are allowed so long as such arrangements are permitted under the sponsoring agreement between the Government and the specific FFRDC.Navy laboratories, military universities and warfare centers as well as other Department of Defense and civilian agency laboratories are also not eligible to receive awards under this Special Notice and should not directly submit either white papers or full proposals in response to this Special Notice. If any such organization is interested in one or more of the programs described herein, the organization should contact an appropriate ONR Technical POC to discuss its area of interest.University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs) are eligible to submit proposals under this BAA unless precluded from doing so by their Department of Defense UARC contract.Teams are also encouraged and may submit proposals in any and all areas. However, Offerors must be willing to cooperate and exchange software, data and other information in an integrated program with other contractors, as well as with system integrators, selected by ONR.

Description: The Office of Naval Research is soliciting white papers and proposals for basic research in immersive sciences. The Navy and Marine Corps seeks to use mixed reality technologies to improve training and operations for infantry combat personnel, with a specific focus on small unit leaders (e.g., Squad Leader). This includes a range of applications, including: augmented training environments that can simulate environments and assets, and heads-up displays that overlay useful virtual information onto the real-world environment. While the Navy and Marine Corps have envisioned these applications, this research opportunity is focused on the development of the underlying scientific disciplines.In support of this goal, the Immersive Sciences research program seeks to address basic research challenges in automated methods for generating content for use in mixed reality technologies, and novel methods for visualization and interaction in Augmented Reality that are connected to underlying human factors principles, guidelines, and scientific evidence.
