    Milestone 1 (Congressional Appropriation): Milestone 2 (Vision Setting): Each program's Integration Panel (IP), composed of renowned experts -- scientists and clinicians, as well as disease survivors, identify the Programmatic Priorities for the year. Milestone 3 (Release of Program Announcements)Milestone 4 (Proposal Receipt)Milestone 5 (Peer Review): Submitted proposals are peer reviewed by program, along with other proposals submitted in response to the same mechanism offered in the Program Announcements. Renowned scientists and clinicians are assigned to panels to review proposals according to their individual expertise. In addition, several disease survivors sit on each peer review panel. The process of Peer Review evaluates not only the science of each submission but also the proposed budget. Milestone 6 (Programmatic Review): Proposals undergo Programmatic Review by the IP with select additional scientists chosen for their expertise in the field. Proposals are evaluated in a comparison basis, against submissions in other specialty fields in order to identify proposals with the greatest programmatic relevance, those that most completely address the year's Programmatic Priorities, as well as disease relevance, and innovation, among other factors.

    What: The objectives of this program are to attract outstanding faculty members of Institutions of Higher Education to the Department of the Navy's research program, to support their research, and to encourage their teaching and research careers. Applications should contact a Program Officer who is the point-of-contact for a specific technical area, to discuss their research ideas. Brief informal pre-proposals may be submitted to facilitate these discussions. Such discussions can clarify the content and breadth of the priority research areas and enhance the match between a subsequent proposal and Department of the Navy research needs.

    How Much: Proposals may request up to $170,000 per year for three (3) years. These funds may be budgeted against any reasonable costs related to the conduct of the proposed research, for example, salary for the Young Investigator, graduate student support, supplies, and operating expenses. Additional funds (beyond the basic $170,000 yearly amount) for capital equipment which enhances the Young Investigator's proposed research may be requested for the first budget period, based on the needs of the research. The basic $170,000 per year award can be supplemented through a "matching funds" enhancement available only to those receiving an ONR Young Investigator award.

    Suggestions on working with DOD Basic Research

    Program Officer Program Officer Program Officer

    DOD Program officers have considerable latitude at project level

    Typical subprogram budget ~ $1-2 M

    Their reputation/professional advancement tied to your success / failure

    Make contact with Program Officer before submitting a white paper or proposal

    Significantly improves chance of tailoring ideas

    First read the descriptive paragraph on the website call informed

    Plumb his/her current interest website paragraphs are likely dated

    Also ask after availability of funds resources may be fully committed

  • 144

    Suggestions on working with DOD Basic Research (cont)

    Consider a rotational assignment at DARPA/OXR Very good way to establish / cement personal relationships with other POs Also good opportunity to broaden ones vistas

    True collaborative efforts with a DOD lab can improve chances of success at an OXR DOD labs are generally well equipped and staff deficient - exploit ARL, AFRL, NRL - Army, Air Force and Navy respectively

    See Faculty Exchange and Summer Faculty programs chart

  • 145

    Suggestions on working with DOD Basic Research (cont)

    Use-inspired basic research predominates in DOD, but

    Breakthrough ideas (like nano and chaos 20 yrs ago) can be a trump card

    DOD has traditionally opened up new areas of S&E before there are peers

  • 146

    Provide new ideas for a program (to which coincidently you are competitively positioned) Program officers look for ways to grow their portfolio Participate in program defining workshops (especially with DARPA)

    Provide ideas for MURI topic(s) MURIs provide new money to POs as well as to PIs Topics first competed inside OXRs (there tends to be a fair share system) Then validated / approved by OSD

    Provide ideas for SBIR / STTR topic(s) SBIR / STTR provide a transition pathway for POs, as well as for the PIs

    How do we protect our forces in the face of weapons proliferation - WMD, missiles, IED?

    How do we fight in cities? How do we transport our forces more rapidly? What is a proper mix of heavy vs. light forces? What type of weapons do we develop? What will be DoDs role in Homeland Security? How do we protect our information management

    systems and infrastructure?
