Download as PDF nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES 55110 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 222 / Monday, November 20, 2017 / Notices agree with one or more non-Federal parties to share research resources, but the Federal party does not contribute funding. CRADAs are not procurement contracts. Care is taken to ensure that CRADAs are not used to circumvent the contracting process. CRADAs have a specific purpose and should not be confused with procurement contracts, grants, and other type of agreements. Under the proposed CRADA, the Coast Guard’s Research and Development Center (R&DC) will collaborate with one or more nonFederal participants. Together, the R&DC and the non-Federal participants will evaluate SUAS and their airborne sensors to determine their potential for use in a maritime environment by a first responder and DHS operational components. We anticipate that the Coast Guard’s contributions under the proposed CRADA will include the following: (1) Develop the demonstration test plan to be executed under the CRADA; (2) Provide the SUAS test range, test range support, facilities, and all approvals required for a 5 day demonstration under the CRADA; (3) Conduct the privacy threshold analysis required for the demonstration; (4) Conduct the privacy impact assessment required for the demonstration; (5) Coordinate any required spectrum approval for the SUAS; (6) Coordinate and receive any required interim flight clearance for the demonstration; (7) Provide any required airspace coordination and de-confliction for the demonstration test plan; (8) Collect and analyze demonstration test plan data; and (9) Develop a demonstration final report documenting the methodologies, findings, conclusions, and recommendations of this CRADA work. We anticipate that the non-Federal participants’ contributions under the proposed CRADA will include the following: (1) Provide SUAS and all other equipment to conduct the demonstration described in the demonstration test plan; (2) Provide all required operators and technicians to conduct the demonstration; (3) Provide technical data for the SUAS to be utilized; (4) Provide shipment and delivery of all SUAS equipment required for the demonstration; and (5) Provide travel and associated personnel and other expenses as required. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:15 Nov 17, 2017 Jkt 244001 The Coast Guard reserves the right to select for CRADA participants all, some, or no proposals submitted for this CRADA. The Coast Guard will provide no funding for reimbursement of proposal development costs. Proposals and any other material submitted in response to this notice will not be returned. Proposals submitted are expected to be unclassified and have no more than five single-sided pages (excluding cover page, DD 1494, JF–12, etc.). The Coast Guard will select proposals at its sole discretion on the basis of: (1) How well they communicate an understanding of, and ability to meet, the proposed CRADA’s goal; and (2) How well they address the following criteria: (a) Technical capability to support the non-Federal party contributions described; and (b) Resources available for supporting the non-Federal party contributions described. Currently, the Coast Guard is considering AeroVironment, Inc. for participation in this CRADA, because they have demonstrated the ability to operate SUAS in a maritime environment. However, we do not wish to exclude other viable participants from this or future similar CRADAs. This is a technology demonstration effort. The goal of this CRADA is to identify and investigate the potential of the SUAS and their airborne sensors to determine their potential use in a maritime environment by the first responder and the DHS operational components. Special consideration will be given to small business firms/ consortia, and preference will be given to business units located in the U.S. This notice is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 15 U.S.C. 3710(a). Dated: November 2, 2017. Gregory C. Rothrock, Captain, USCG, Commanding Officer, U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center.
