CECD under the leadership of Prof. Dave Anand, CECD Director, has signed a new $10M five-year collaborative agreement with NSWC Indian Head in the area of energetics. The relationship between NSWC Indian Head and CECD started in 1998, when the first collaborative agreement was signed. The second agreemet was signed in 2004. This is the third agreement CECD has signed with NSWC Indian Head.
The winning CECD proposal was submitted to NSWC Indian Head in response to Solicitation BAA-08-001 and was evaluated based on four criteria: (1) the overall technical merits of the proposed research and development; (2) the potential relationship of the proposed research and development to Department of Navy missions; (3) CECD capabilities, related experience, and facilities; and (4) quality and amount of cost share proposed by CECD.
The CECD proposal will build on the very successful collaboration that CECD has had with NSWC Indian Head over the last ten years and will continue various collaborative technical activities between NSWC Indian Head and CECD. During the last ten years, CECD received $8.9M of research support from NSWC Indian Head, covering 130 technical projects. Fifty-two scientists and engineers from NSWC and 31 faculty and researchers from UMD have worked on these projects.
