NATO Business Opportunity: Novel Materials and Manufacturing Study on Alternative Battery and Wearable Technologies
Headquarteres Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (HQ SACT) has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to conduct a study of use cases for future military applications within the areas of Alternative Battery Technology and Wearable Technology and identify associated risks and opportunities for warfare and warfare development.
Based on the identified advances of Novel Materials and Manufacturing (NMM) in graphene, lab-on-a-chip, sensors, wearable technology, nanotechnology, Internet of Things (IoT), and Internet of Bodies (IoB), new options are available to distribute data to the decisionmaking systems, save energy, reduce cost, and increase the digitalization of the multidomain operational environment. NATO must exploit the opportunities offered by NMM to their fullest, but also address interoperability and compatibility issues, resilience, and redundancy. This NMM Technologies study is part of an overall effort to improve NATO s ability to shape the multi-domain operations environment to its advantage and to support the digital transformation process.
To be eligible to participate in the bidding process, U.S. bidders must 1) have professional operations in the United States, 2) work in the required field of study, 3) have performed contracts of the size, cost, and scope as described in the RFP, and 4) include only personnel on this requirement who are citizens of a NATO member nation.
