Summary

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is seeking concept design, prototype construction, and deployment testing of satellite-borne TOA receive systems. These receivers will work in tandem with terrestrial and marine transmitters (tags) and auxiliary terrestrial TOA receivers to form a global ultra-low energy positioning system. BOEM is looking for teams with prior demonstrated expertise in both low-power time-of-arrival positioning systems and CubeSat design and mission operations. The information gained from movement studies enabled by this technology will directly contribute to BOEM's environmental assessments and decision documents. The opportunity is a Cooperative Agreement with no cost sharing or matching requirement. The estimated total program funding is $630,000, with an award ceiling of $210,000 and an award floor of $160,000. The opportunity is open to eligible applicants, with the additional information that it is a Single Source Cooperative Agreement with the University of Colorado, Boulder. The opportunity falls under the category of funding activity for the environment. The close date for electronically submitted applications is May 3, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. ET.
