The MURI program supports basic science and/or engineering research at U.S. institutions of higher education (hereafter referred to as ?universities?) that is of critical importance to national defense. The program is focused on multidisciplinary research efforts that intersect more than one traditional science and engineering discipline to address issues of critical concern to the DoD. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 MURI competition is for the 26 topics listed below. Detailed descriptions of the topics can be found in Section VIII SPECIFIC MURI TOPICS, of this BAA. The detailed descriptions are intended to provide the proposer a frame of reference and are not meant to be restrictive to the possible approaches to achieving the goals of the topic and the program. Innovative ideas addressing these research topics are highly encouraged.
White papers and full proposals addressing the following topics (1) through (10) should be mailed to the Office of Naval Research (ONR): (1) Effects of Implosion on Surrounding Structures (2) Remote Sensing of Seafloor Properties in Denied Areas (3) Energetic Material Initiation Mechanisms for Insensitive Munitions & Counter IED Applications (4) Assimilation of Emerging Remote Sensing Data Types into Dynamic Ocean Models (5) Image Understanding for Persistent Surveillance (6) Structural Iron-based Alloys with High Magnetostriction (7) Reconfigurable Human-Agent Collaboration: Human Performance in Network-Centric Operations (8) Impulse Loading Effects on Marine Structures (9) Multifunctional EMO (Electrical, Magnetic and Optical) Chip (10) Novel Vaccines and Antibiotics: Targeting and Exploiting the Bacterial Quorum Sensing Pathway.
White papers and full proposals addressing topics (11) through (18) should be mailed to the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR): (11) Health Monitoring and Materials Damage Prognosis for Metallic Aerospace Propulsion and Structural Systems (12) Multi-Functional Design for Combined Load-Bearing and Power Generation Capabilities: Structural Integration of Energy Harvest Function (13) Negative Index Materials (NIMs) (14) Silicon-Based Lasers and Nanophotonics (15) Bioengineering for Compact, Sustainable Power (16) Dynamic, Adaptive Techniques for Adversary Behavior Modeling (17) High Confidence Design for Distributed, Embedded Systems (18) Performance Prediction and Modeling for Active Vision.
White papers and full proposals addressing topics (19) through (26) should be mailed to the Army Research Office (ARO): (19) Bio-integrating Structural and Neural Prosthetic Materials (20) Spatial-Temporal Event Pattern Recognition (21) Self Assembling Metallic/Metalloid Cluster Materials (22) OMNI-Optical Materials with Negative Index (23) Monolithic Silicon Microbolometer Materials for Uncooled IR Detectors (24) Ultrafast Switching for Optical Imaging (25) Ultrafast, Non-equilibrium Laser-Material Interactions (26) Urban Target Recognition by Ad-Hoc Networks of Imaging Sensors and Low-cost, Nonimaging Sensors.
