The purpose of the Global-X Challenge is to discover and ultimately provide a catalyst through a research grant for subsequent development and delivery of revolutionary capability to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, the commercial marketplace, and the public.
The expected outcomes of this Global-X Challenge are promising, potentially game-changing concepts whose technology maturity may be accelerated under separate follow-on technology development efforts.
Global-X Challenge is meant to spur revolutionary innovation and teaming for a proof of concept within nine months. Office of Naval Research will award up to US$750K to proposals addressing one of the challenges:
- Long Range, High Bandwidth Underwater Communications
