Section 3 - Cost to the Government: This section shall specify the total costs proposed to be borne by the Government and any technical or other assistance including equipment, facilities, and personnel of Federal laboratories, if any, required to support these activities. The cost to the Government should be that portion of the proposed effort, which is not covered, by the contractor's portion of the cost share. The costs incurred and work performed by any DoD or national laboratory "partnering" with the offeror under the proposal shall normally be considered costs of the Government and not costs of the offeror for purposes of the cost-sharing requirement. Present sufficient information regarding the resources to be provided by the Government so that an evaluation of their availability, timeliness, and control may be made. Section 4 - Off-Budget Supporting Resources: This section shall show cash or in-kind resources which will support the proposed activity but which are not intended to be included in the total project cost. Items in this category do not count as cost share or as Federal funds, which must be matched. Examples of items to place in this category include commitments of cash or in-kind resources from other Federal sources, such as national laboratories, and projections of fee-based income where there is substantial uncertainty about the level which will actually be collected and where the income is not needed to meet cost-share requirements. 5. EVALUATION CRITERIA The Government will evaluate proposals responsive to any or all of the areas of interest discussed herein. Proposals will not be evaluated against each other. 5.1 EVALUATION CRITERIA The primary evaluation criteria are: a) Scientific and technical merits of the proposed research to include, (1) the degree to which the proposed research and development objectives support the targeted technical topic and (2) validity of the technical basis for the approach offered.b) The offeror's capabilities, related experience, past performance on similar efforts, research investigators/personnel, facilities, location, techniques, or unique combination of these, which are integral factors for achieving the proposal objectives.c) The realism and reasonableness of cost, including proposed cost sharing.6. AWARDS NAWCAD intends to award Cooperative Agreements, however, NAWCAD will consider various types of acquisition vehicles including but not limited to traditional FAR/DFARS type contracts or other non-procurement agreements. NAWCAD is planning to make one or more awards within the overall objectives stated in this BAA. All awards will be based on the individual merit of the proposal. The Government reserves the right to select all, some, or none of the proposals received in response to this announcement. Any awards are subject to the availability of appropriations. There is no commitment by the Navy to be responsible for any monies expended by the offeror before award of a contract/agreement. For awards made as contracts, the socio-economic merits of each proposal will be evaluated based on the commitment to provide meaningful subcontracting opportunities with small business programs. These efforts shall be conducted primarily at the agreement holder's site but NAWCAD facilities may also be available and/or used depending on project needs. Access and use of NAWCAD facilities will require security clearances and US citizenship. NOTE: Typically, research findings result in the need for additional services/supplies, which are not possible to anticipate or project. Modifications to the agreement may be executed to satisfy these requirements; thereby providing for flexibility in technology assessment (with technology transition the ultimate goal). In the event that this is required, it shall be considered to be within the scope of this BAA and the resulting agreement, and therefore will have met the requirements of the Department of Defense Grant and Agreement Regulations (DODGARS).

The application of unmanned aircraft to perform national security, defense, scientific, and emergency management are driving the critical need for less restrictive access by UAS to the NAS. UAS represent a new capability that will provide a variety of services in the government (public) and commercial (civil) aviation sectors. The growth of this potential industry has not yet been realized due to the lack of a common understanding of what is required to safely operate UAS in the NAS. To address this deficiency, NASA has established a Project called UAS Integration in the NAS (UAS in the NAS), under the Integrated Aviation Systems Program (IASP) of the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD). The Project goal is to provide research findings supporting the development and validation of detect and avoid (DAA) and command and control (C2) technologies necessary for integrating UAS into the NAS with airborne system tests. The next phase of the UAS-NAS Project will continue to focus on DAA and C2 technologies that are ready to be transitioned to implementation on unmanned vehicles, specifically to develop RTCA Special Committee (SC) - 228 Minimum Operational Performance Standards (MOPS). To that end, integrated flight tests in FY18 and FY19 and simulations throughout the remainder of the project are planned to support the development of the standards. This project provides an opportunity to transition concepts, technology, algorithms, and knowledge to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other stakeholders to help them define the requirements, regulations, and issues for routine UAS NAS access. Existing Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR), procedures, and technologies do not allow routine UAS access to the NAS. Access to the NAS is hampered by challenges such as the lack of an on-board pilot to see and avoid other aircraft, the reliance on command and control (C2) links used primarily by the military, and the wide variation in UAS size and performance (altitudes, speeds, and duration at which UAS operate). In order for UAS to integrate seamlessly in the NAS, major technical and regulatory challenges must be resolved. Challenges relevant to this solicitation include, but are not limited to: • Ensuring adequate separation assurance (sense and avoid - obstacles, weather, etc.)• Ensuring adequate collision avoidance• Ensuring robust and secure communications technologies• Solving the constraints of frequency spectrum allocation• Developing certification standards for a wide range of UAS vehicle types• Developing Ground Control Stations modifications for NAS compliance The UAS in the NAS Communications Subproject addresses several of these issues. The safe and efficient integration of UAS into the NAS requires new RF spectrum allocations and a new data communications system which is both secure and scalable. The C2 link will be used to exchange information between the unmanned aircraft and the ground control station, to ensure safe, reliable, and effective unmanned aircraft flight operation. The focus of the Communications Subproject is on validating and allocating new RF spectrum and data link communications to enable civil UAS integration into the NAS. The goal is to validate secure, robust data links within the satellite communications (SatCom) frequency spectrum being targeted for civil UAS. RTCA Special Committee (SC) 228 is starting to develop standards for SatCom technologies and architectures, building on the previous work performed under the RTCA SC-203. A vision, architectural concepts, and "seed" requirements for the future civil UAS command and control communication system were developed by SC-203 and refined for terrestrial UAS communications under SC-228. NASA intends to conduct its research and development in keeping with this vision and associated architectural concepts, while partnering with industry to develop and test prototype UAS C2 SatCom systems. These prototype communication systems will be used to validate/update the initial SC-228 requirements in order to provide a foundation for SC-228's Minimum Operational System Performance Standards (MOPS) documentation. Further, the International Telecommunications Union - Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) has provided potential new spectrum allocations within the Fixed Satellite Service in the Ku and Ka Bands that may be used for UAS CNPC links in non-segregated airspace at the 2015 World Radiocommunication Conference, but requiring the specification of some performance requirements before these allocations can be finalized (WRC-15 Resolution 155). These prototype UAS C2 SatCom systems will provide performance data to support the ITU-R performance specifications. NASA, with its industry partners, will be applying state-of-the-art communication system technologies, which have promise for inclusion in an operational environment, to design/develop/test a prototype UAS SatCom system. This prototype system must be designed to address the initial "seed" requirements from SC-228 and must be on a path to certification. The C2 SatCom data-link system must be designed to scale with increasing UAS traffic and without impacting the ATC communication system, and must demonstrate successful operation within internationally allocated frequency spectrum.
