 NSRP

Improving productivity during Ultra-High Pressure water blasting and reducing environmental disposal was one NSRP research project.

The program leverages public/private cooperation to manage cost-shared R&D into new ship production technologies, ship design and material technologies, infrastructure and support innovation, and business processes and information technologies.

RA Solicitations

NSRP issues an RA when the program is seeking new and creative solutions to problem statements and/or advances in technologies, tools and processes. The flexibility of RAs allows NSRP to state its objectives in general terms, as opposed to Requests for Proposals (RFPs), which require specific solutions or outcomes.

The current RA lists these focus areas (a proposal may apply to more than one area):

  • Promotion of Modular Construction
  • Reduction of Rework
  • Improving Production Engineering
  • Improving Specifications and Standards
  • Improving Manufacturing Processes
  • Improving Production Planning
  • Interoperability and Data Exchange
  • Improving Safety and Health/Reducing Environmental Impacts
  • Education and Training
  • Total Ownership Cost

Application Information

Abstracts are mandatory and must be submitted before submitting a proposal. Abstracts are to be submitted electronically via the NSRP Website by 11:59 p.m. EST June 17, 2011. A detailed Proposal Preparation Kit spells out the current proposal requirements.

Important dates for this solicitation:
