The Navy is seeking proposals for research and development projects related to reconnaissance and surveillance, payloads, sensors, delivery systems and platforms, according to a Jan. 23 broad agency announcement.

Technologies sought include communications relay, acoustic sensors, manned and unmanned airborne payloads, persistent surveillance technologies, unattended ground sensors and special sensor systems for Navy aircraft and manned and unmanned air vehicles, the BAA said.

The BAA was published by Naval Sea Systems Command on behalf of Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst, NJ, which develops advanced sensors and systems.

"The purpose of these sensors and surveillance systems is to support a variety of aviation missions including air-under-sea-warfare, airborne strike, air warfare, counter-air, close air support and interdiction, defense suppression, electronic attack, naval warfare and amphibious strike and anti-Surface Warfare," the notice said.
