Federal contract opportunity FA8650-17-S-2007 for research and development in the physical, engineering, and life sciences (except biotechnology) at Air Force Materiel Command AFRL/RQK - WPAFB, response was due Apr 20, 2017.
The purpose of the ATTAM Phase I Pre-Solicitation Meeting is to improve the understanding of Government requirements and industry capabilities, thereby allowing potential offerors to judge whether or how they can satisfy the Government's requirements. This Pre-Solicitation Meeting will also enhance the Government's ability to obtain quality research and development while also increasing efficiency in proposal preparation, and proposal evaluation.
The ATTAM Phase I Program is a joint DoD/NASA/DOE/FAA/Industry effort to develop revolutionary and innovative technologies by the 2026 timeframe that will provide an increase in fuel efficiency, propulsive capability and increase power and thermal management goals. To achieve this goal, AFRL/RQ has committed resources to the development of advanced components and the assessment and verification of these components in TRL 6 demonstrator engines.
The overall goals of the ATTAM Phase I program are to (each goal depends on engine class):
Increase fuel efficiency from 10%-30%
Increase power and thermal management goals by 2x to 20x
Increase propulsive capability by 10%-25%
