US Army Seeks 3D Mapping, Modeling Tool for GPS-Denied Operations
The U.S. Army is asking eligible small businesses to submit proposals for a solution that can provide real-time two and three-dimensional mapping and modeling capabilities and can integrate sensor and object-identification data to support operations in GPS-denied environments.
The service will select up to two Dynamic Enhanced Environment Perception – Building Information Models proposals for prototyping and demonstration. Each selected business will receive a potential two-year, $1.9 million Small Business Innovation Research Direct to Phase II contract to mature their technologies, the U.S. Army said.
According to Matt Willis, director of Army Prize Competitions and the Army Applied SBIR Program, the proposed DEEP-BIM solution will be applied to subterranean counter-weapons of mass destruction operations of the Army, U.S. Special Operations Command and other mission stakeholders. He noted that DEEP-BIM is a dual-use technology because its capacity can be expanded into the commercial construction sector.
The Army will begin accepting proposals on July 6 via the Defense SBIR|STTR Innovation Portal. Submissions are due Aug. 8.
