3. General Intent:

CCDC DAC is interested in creating a more efficient and effective laboratory that can be adaptive and responsive to the challenges of the future Army. It is widely acknowledged that innovation depends on bringing multiple disciplines together to engage in collaborative projects that often yield unpredictable, but highly productive results. Formal and informal interactions among scientists and analysts lead to knowledge-building and technical breakthroughs. By bringing together academia, industry and government, the Army can enhance its performance through collocated R&D collaboration. CCDC DAC is exploring the establishment of a PIA with a Partnership Intermediary to provide assistance to CCDC DAC in facilitating access to useful regional facilities and researchers developing and maintaining synergistic relationships with the research and entrepreneur community and identifying and establishing government partnerships to support the development of knowledge, methods, techniques, and capabilities relevant to the future Army to enable maneuver support and protection to Multi Domain Operations.

4. Description:

With a rapidly changing world comes an operating environment that is more contested, more lethal, and more complex. Peer adversaries are challenging the ability of the U.S. and our allies to deter aggressive actions. To address these challenges, the concept of multi domain battle is to drive change and design for the U.S. Army to effectively operate and succeed against peer adversaries to maintain U.S. interest, deter conflict, and when necessary prevail in war. The CCDC DAC is conducting applied research and analysis to meet challenges in the Maneuver Support and Protection functions necessary in Multi Domain Operations and seeks a Partnership Intermediary to identify and organize external partners from industry and academia that support and extend such research and analysis. CCDC DAC supports the Maneuver Support Center¡¯s responsibility to develop new materiel requirements based on the needs of the Soldier and provide research and analysis solutions to defeat operational deficiencies. Benefits for the CCDC DAC in using a Partnership Intermediary include pinpointing and structuring research capabilities, entrepreneurial and industrial partners and ascertaining prospects for CCDC DAC and the Maneuver Support Center to combine human capital, share facilities, expose new ideas and form collaboration hubs which could support new concepts and joint programs. This RFI seeks input with a focus on knowledge generation, methods, techniques, and capabilities to enable maneuver support and protection to conduct Multi Domain Operations, identifying where benefits could be provided to assist CCDC DAC in achieving its goals for the Army Future Force.

In response to this RFI, interested eligible applicants are requested to provide strategies and explicit examples of how they propose to facilitate and advance CCDC DAC initiatives in collaborative applied research and analysis as described further below.
