Opportunity Summary
Analytical Solutions for Lifecycle FeedbackDigital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute, DMDII-16-01 - This project call is looking to develop solutions for feedforward and feedback of manufacturing and product data. Technologies will allow product field performance and service data to feed back to manufacturing and product development; manufacturing performance data to feed back to product development and product design; and manufacturing data to feed forward to the field to support optimization of product service and lifecycle decisions. This capability is critical to the establishment of an efficient and continuous digital thread connecting each stage of the manufacturing enterprise. The ultimate goal is a system that improves manufacturing efficiencies, product quality, and the effectiveness of field service and support. COE-ASM has existing technology that can be used as core components for the development of this capability. White papers are due May 18, 2016.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Retrofit Kit for Legacy ManufacturingDigital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute, DMDII-16-02 - This project call seeks to develop low cost, standards-based technologies for plug-and-play connection of existing machine tools for a smarter factory. The goal is to enable integration of smart sensors, data collection, control systems, and data analytics for improved operational decision making. COE-ASM is currently active in the development of these technologies and is looking for machine tool builders and other manufacturers interested in the deployment of this type of technology as project partners. White papers are due May 18, 2016.
RFI Energy Efficiency Optimization for Connected and Automated VehiclesRequest for Information (RFI)- Energy Efficiency Optimization for Connected and Automated Vehicles This is a Request for Information only. This RFI is not accepting applications for financial assistance. The purpose of this RFI is solely to solicit input for ARPA-E consideration to inform the possible formulation of future programs. ARPA-E seeks input from researchers and developers in a broad range of disciplines including automotive vehicle control, powertrain control and transportation analytics regarding the development of advanced energy efficiency optimization technologies for future connected and automated vehicles (CAVs).
Innovative Development in Energy-Related Applied Science (IDEAS) 2015This announcement is purposely broad in scope to encourage the submission of the most innovative, out-of-the-box ideas in energy technology. It is an endeavor to identify technologies that enable the efficient and cost-effective conversation between or within the various different forms of energy while minimizing exergy destruction. Applications must be received by September 30, 2016.
