Advanced Analytics and Data Science for Naval Warfare Planning and Execution: The Office of Naval Research is interested in receiving white papers and full proposals for Advanced Technology Development that will forge major advancements towards a well developed and robust Naval Big Data Ecosystem that enables more sophisticated and powerful analytics for supporting Naval Warfighting applications. To accomplish this objective, ONR seeks to make advancements in four key Thrust Areas: (1) Development of a robust Naval Data Science foundation that addresses data representations and ontologies required to support a wide range of Naval Warfare Mission Areas; (2) Identifying, acquiring, ingesting, and indexing Data Sources pertinent to Naval Warfighting Missions; (3) Development of advanced analytics for Naval Warfare Mission Areas; and (4) Development of data protection and security mechanisms to ensure the integrity of data used throughout the analytic process. The overall objective of this effort is to achieve unprecedented access to data; to extract new and deeper insights by exploiting data in new and innovative ways; and to apply those new insights to improving Naval Warfare activities. A major goal of this effort is to significantly improve the Naval community's real-time ability to bring together information from National systems and sensors with information from Naval combat and weapon systems and sensors. In the past, the ability to merge these types of information to support tactical warfighting has been extremely limited. Emerging technologies (such as Cloud, Computing, Big Data, and more effective Cross Domain technologies) are enabling us to overcome many of the technological and infrastructure limitations that limit the ability to integrate and exploit National and tactical data sources. This BAA seeks to leverage the power of these emerging technologies to develop innovative and ground-breaking analytic capabilities that enhance threat assessment and prediction, combat ID, integrated fires, and Naval mission planning and execution. Enhancements to these capabilities will be focused on two Naval Warfare Areas: Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Integrated Air/Missile Defense (IAMD).

Additional Information on Eligibility
All responsible sources from academia and industry may submit proposals under this BAA. Inclusive of Small Business Concerns, Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Concerns, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Concerns, Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) Concerns, Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Concerns, Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) Concerns, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs) are all highly encouraged to submit proposals as prime contractors and as well as join others (e.g., subcontractors) in submitting proposals. However, no portion of this BAA will be set-aside for Small Businesses, HUBZones, SDVOSBs, SDBs, WOSBs, VOSBs or HBCU and MI participation, due to the desire to seek research ideas from all entities.
Federally Funded Research & Development Centers (FFRDCs), including Department of Energy National Laboratories, are not eligible to receive awards under this BAA. However, teaming arrangements between FFRDCs and eligible principal bidders are allowed so long as they are permitted under the sponsoring agreement between the Government and the specific FFRDC.
Navy laboratories and warfare centers as well as other Department of Defense and civilian agency laboratories are also not eligible to receive awards under this BAA and should not directly submit either white papers or full proposals in response to this BAA. If any such organization is interested in one or more of the programs described herein, the organization should contact an appropriate ONR POC to discuss its area of interest. The various scientific divisions of ONR are identified at As with FFRDCs, these types of federal organizations may team with other responsible sources from academia and industry that are submitting proposals under this BAA.
University Affiliated Research Centers (UARC) are eligible to submit proposals under this BAA unless precluded from doing so by their Department of Defense UARC contracts.
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.
Some topics cover export controlled technologies. Research in these areas is limited to "U.S. persons" as defined in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) - 22 CFR § 1201.1 et seq.
