A critical area of focus for DHS is the protection of the homeland from the threat of high explosives in vehicles. In support of this critical focus area, HSARPA is initiating the ?Prototypes and Technology for Improvised Explosives Device Detection? (PTIEDD)Program. Its goals are:
To develop, rapid prototype, and improve products and systems capable of
detecting explosive compounds in vehicles;
To support research and development of next generation or novel technologies or
prototypes for detection of improvised explosives in vehicles, in leave-behind
packages, or carried by suicide bombers.
This BAA consists of two Technical Topic Areas (TTAs) described in Section 3. The BAA is structured to solicit Proposals for near term projects (TTA-1) where pre-production working prototypes are to be delivered and evaluated within 9 to 18 months after award. In addition, Proposals are also solicited to design, develop, and demonstrate future or novel technologies and devices (TTA-2) that will significantly advance the state of the art in each critical area. It is anticipated that prototypes will be delivered under TTA-2 no later than 60 months after award.
The PTIEDD Program will require innovative or novel capabilities in multiple disciplines including material science, computer science, chemistry, physics, electrical, mechanical and systems engineering. In order to best accomplish the goals of the PTIEDD Program, HSARPA anticipates receiving Proposals with innovative teaming that may include private sector organizations; government laboratories, including Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs); and academic institutions.
