The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the No Manning Required, Ship (NOMARS) program in anticipation of a planned Broad Agency Announcement. The No Manning Required, Ship (NOMARS) program seeks to design a ship that can operate autonomously for long durations at sea, enabling a clean-sheet ship design process that eliminates design considerations associated with crew. NOMARS focuses on exploring novel approaches to the design of the seaframe (the ship without mission systems) while accommodating representative payload size, weight, and power.
NOMARS aims to challenge the traditional naval architecture model, designing a seaframe from the ground up with no provision, allowance, or expectation for humans at sea. By removing the human element from all ship design considerations, the program intends to demonstrate significant advantages, to include size, cost, at-sea reliability, survivability to sea-state, and survivability to adversary actions such as stealth considerations and resistance to tampering. The program also will strive for greater hydrodynamic efficiency via hull optimization without requirements for crew safety or comfort.
Pre-registration is required and closes Jan 8, 2020, at 11:59 PM EST. For additional information, please visit: https://beta.sam.gov/opp/fd0ba75d1ef64d569db637571f659dbb/view
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, the NOMARS Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
