Notice: ACC HiCAMIndustry Day and Capabilities Statement Request•Advanced Composites Consortium (ACC)oPublic-private partnership, formed by NASA and selected partners in 2015oNASA has approved leveraging the ACC as appropriate, including the potential addition of new members, to support new work•Hi-Rate Composite Aircraft Manufacturing (HiCAM) oNew NASA project in pre-formulationoApproved to execute early start activities to support HiCAMformulation•Current Opportunity:oNASA, on behalf of the ACC Executive Steering Committee (ESC), is requesting information from organizations interested in becoming a member of the ACCoACC membership is limited to United States (U.S.) industry, including not-for-profit institutions, and U.S. universities/colleges•Information requested:oOne (1) page summary that includes an organizational overview, anticipated contribution to the ACC to address HiCAMobjectives, and willingness to accept the terms and conditions of the AoCas written.oCapabilities statement detailing qualifications, bullet format, limited to three (3) pages, organized by and addressing five topic areas:•Design and manufacture of composites for aerospace•Ability to engage in cost sharing (50/50)•Certification experience for aircraft•Focus technology experience: material development and qualification, progressive damage modeling, bonding, manufacturing tooling, … •Partnership experience in PPPs or similar 3Hi-Rate Composite Aircraft Manufacturing (HiCAM)•Goal: enable 4–6X manufacturing rate increase for composite airframe structures (~15 ~100/month)•Shift from focus on weight to balance rate, cost, & weight•Demonstrate high-rate manufacturing concepts at full scale (TRL/MRL 3+ 6 at close)•Evolving SoAthermosets•Thermoplastics•Resin Transfer Molding•Materials, processes, and architectures•Demonstrate model-based engineering tools for efficient design, development, and certification•Partner with Industry & FAA for realistic requirements•Leverage industry expertise and efforts•Partnership model similar to Advanced Composites ProjectRapid prototype and evaluation of manufacturing concepts,

Demonstrate manufacturing approaches and associated technologies for large composite primary airframe structures that enable a 4-6x production rate increase without cost or weight penalty for composite structures versus 2020 best in class for early 2030s entry into service (EIS) single-aisle aircraftPotential MilestonesBudget Request, FY21 ($M)Select Concepts to EvaluateTRL/MRL 4

Committee (ESC)Technical Oversight Committee (TOC)Cooperative Research Teams (CRT)Tier 1 MembersTier 2 MembersExecutive Steering Committee controls the size and composition of the ACC•Expertise to conduct envisioned work•Reasonable number of Tier I and Tier II Members 8ACC Membership StructureTier I members:•Members of the Executive Steering Committee (ESC) and Technical Oversight Committee (TOC)•Meet all 5 criteria:1.Technical expertise in design and manufacture of composites 2.Funding willingness and ability to engage in cost sharing 3.Composites certification experience (vehicles or components) with FAA or DoD4.Focus technology experience 5.Experience in PPP or similar relevant collaborative partnershipsTier II members:•Members of the TOC only•Do not meet all 5 criteria of Tier I membershipNOTE: All members have same cost share requirements and similar IP provisions 9ACC Work Package and CRT Formation •ACC research topics align with goals of supporting Project(s) : –Previously, ACP : reduce timeline to develop and certify composite structures–Current, HiCAM: 4-6x manufacturing rate for composite primary airframe structure to meet single aisle demand•ACC workshops (gov’t, industry) held to identify and prioritize potential research topics–Potential impact on Project objectives –Multiple members having interest–Willingness to openly share products (data, IP) with partners on a work activity–Ability to cost share 50/50•Call for Proposals based upon select research topics issued to ACC members–Cooperative Research Teams then formed with Gov’t and Industry partners defining content, and delegating responsibilities and cost distribution (mutually negotiated)–Work Activities approved by ESC, with funding approved by NASA and participating CRT members–Work initiated via cooperative agreements•Upcoming ACC Work Activities based upon ACC planning workshops Summer and Fall, CY20, to support HiCAMformulation 10ACC: Cost of Membership•There is no membership fee•Industry partners contribute 50/50 on full cost of each Work Activity •Any member’s participation in a CRT and the level of funding and work split is negotiated between all members of that CRT (industry and gov’t)•Active participation in ACC is required of members (“no watchers”); members may participate in few Work Activities if investment is limited•NASA is managing the ACC and will award Cooperative Agreements to each member performing work•Consortium management cost is part of NASA’s contribution, to be matched by partners in the full cost of research.•Multi-member teams can reduce cost per member on a Work Activity, and work products are shared by all team members–Leverage expertise–Leverage funding: NASA cost share, Partner contributions= 50% NASA cost share•Cash to partner•NASA participation•ACC managementExample ACC Work Activity Funding•Partner A pays for ~1/6 of the work, performs 1/3 of the work, & gets access to all results•NASA cash varies with NASA participation to maintain 50:50Partner CPartner APartner B 11•Allowable contributions from non-gov’t partners–Cash –Non-cash (in-kind): examples are equipment, facilities, labor, office space, database, materials, tooling, etc.•Acceptance and valuation of in-kind resources established in 3 steps: 1.Accepted by CRT, confirming value to the team2.Evaluated by TOC3.Formal review by NASA Procurement–Industry matching contributions cannot be from gov’t sources or previously counted as cost match•Matching NASA contributions include: cash to non-gov’t partners, government furnished equipment, FTE and resources for NASA ACC tasks, consortium management cost•Proposed Project Work Plans must define contributions (monetary or in-kind) before NASA funds work under a CA•Actual cost-share is tracked. Final invoice payment amount will be adjusted unilaterally by the Agreement Officer to achieve an overall 50/50 cost share amount, to ensure compliance with the cost sharing terms.Cost Sharing Details 12ACC IP Provisions 13Intellectual Property: Basic StructureNASA Funded Cooperative Agreements, between NASA and each Member, with Articles of Collaboration attached–Governs rights in inventions and data resulting from Work Activities (NASA funded)–Applies to all subcontracts and lower tier agreements, regardless of tier–General requirements identified by referencing the Articles of Collaboration (AoC)–Addresses large, small and non-profit Consortium Members and/or subcontractors–Inventions:•Small entities can elect to retain title•Allows large entities to petition for an advanced waiver prior to work executionNo NASA Funding or ParticipationArticles of Collaboration –Governs rights in inventions and data for Projects (No NASA funding or participation)–Any data/inventions solely developed on a Project are owned by the CRT member(s) 14Intellectual Property: Key Terminology•Background Technology:–Technology in existence prior to commencement of any work performed under a Work Activity or Project orTechnology developed independently of performance on a Work Activity or Project1.Reserved Background Technology (Data)•Must identify to TOC and note restrictions•Industry CRT Members agree to grant upon request by other CRT Members a royalty-bearing, non-exclusive license to use and further disclose as necessary to enjoy the specified rights in Project Technology•Maintained in confidence and disclosed and used by NASA and its contractors only for the purpose of carrying out NASA’s responsibilities under the CA2.Contributed Background Technology (Data)•Industry CRT Members grant to other CRT Members a non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, paid-up, worldwide license to use as necessary t… Show All
