The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is interested in receiving white papers and, eventually, full proposals from selected Offerors for the Sea-Based Aviation National Naval Responsibility (SBA NNR) Aircraft Research Focus Area. Projects should advance fundamental understanding and the state of the art, and should align with and produce measurable progress towards the long range S&T goals that support Sea-Based Aviation in the areas of: virtual dynamic interface (VDI); advanced handling qualities (HQ) and control; improved fixed-wing (FW) high lift aerodynamics; enhanced fixed wing V/STOL operations; and autonomous deck operations. Research projects should comprise either Basic or Applied Research only. Interaction and collaboration among Industry, Universities, and Government Labs is encouraged. White papers and proposals should identify a technical baseline representative of the current State of the Art (SOA) and explain how the proposed research will advance the technology.
