Get Your Quad Charts Ready!
The US DoD has put out this Broad Agency Announcement (PDF) asking for bids for new technology that will help combat a variety of forms of terrorist attacks. Specific technology that the DoD is looking to have developed include:

  • Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Countermeasures
  • Explosives Detection
  • Explosive Ordnance Disposal / Low Intensity Conflict
  • Improvised Device Defeat
  • Infrastructure Protection
  • Personnel Protection
  • Tactical Operations Support
  • All submittals are due by 4pm on December 1st! You are expected to turn in “Phase 1 Quad Charts” discussing how the technology that you will develop at the taxpayer’s expense will help DoD further its mission.

    The great thing about the Internet is that it’s so easy to find this stuff!
