Independent Research & Development (IR&D)

Technical Inter Change (TIM) Reviews

  • PURPOSE: Communicate the TACOM-ARDEC technology needs to industry and help focus their future IR&D efforts on DoD/Army/TACOM-ARDEC weapons system needs

    KEY CHARACTERISTICS:

  • One day review attended by key technology areas experts and scientists where the government and contractors review programs/technologies of mutual interests

  • Creates a process that encourages unique partnership with industries that has substantial interest in science and technologies that could bring maximum benefits to the DoD, Army and TACOM-ARDEC

  • Provides industries the information and feedback they need to effectively implement their IR&D programs

Cooperative research and development agreement crada l.jpg

CRADA

Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA)

  • Authority?

    • 10 USC 3710a

  • Who can enter one?

    • Federal Laboratory (e.g., ARDEC)

  • What is a CRADA?

    • A contract between federal and non-federal

      parties

    • Not a procurement (FAR not applicable)

    • Government provides technical personnel, services,

      facilities, equipment and other resources, but NO FUNDS

    • Non-Federal party can provide any and all resources

      INCLUDING FUNDS

    • CRADA defines sharing intellectual property

Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs)

Warhead Concepts

Defeats… helicopters, personnel, heavy armor, walls, BMPs, trucks, bunkers, buildings, artillery, UAVs.

CRADAs are a great partnering tool for developing and marketing new concepts
