ONR Global-X Challenge now open

The US Navy’s Office of Naval research – Global (ONR- Global) has called for proposals for its Global-X Challenge. This is designed to spur revolutionary innovation and teaming for a proof of concept within nine months. The Office of Naval Research will award up to US$750,000 to proposals addressing one of three challenges:

  • Long Range, High Bandwidth Underwater Communications
  • Multifunctional Fabric for Survivable Platforms
  • Personal Expeditionary Power

The Kick-Off Webinar is scheduled for 18 April and White Papers are due on 21 May 2023.

The purpose of this Global-X Challenge is to discover, and ultimately provide a catalyst through a research grant, for subsequent development and delivery of revolutionary capability to the US Navy and Marine Corps, the commercial marketplace, and the public. The expected outcomes of this Global-X Challenge are promising, potentially game-changing, concepts whose technology maturity may be accelerated under separate follow-on technology development efforts.
