America Makes Announces Project Call for DoD Point of Need Manufacturing Challenge, Due February 6

January 17, 2023

America Makes, in cooperation with its fellow Manufacturing Innovation institutes and OSD ManTech, is offering a project call of as much as $1.5 million to fund multiple projects under the MII Point of Need (PoN) Challenge from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Individual project budgets are not to exceed $500,000.

The Project Call addresses dual-use applications that are responsive to specific needs of the DoD and the domestic manufacturing industry. This project call is focused on a single Special Topic Area (STA) derived from the DoD advanced manufacturing community and contains seven challenges on PoN manufacturing applications of interest to the DoD. Submit innovative manufacturing solutions that can be deployed close to the warfighter. Solutions must be designed to operate within challenging operational environments as the reach of U.S. forces is global. Technologies will be demonstrated at a location chosen by the DoD within the continental United States that represents one of two operational environments: cold or hot/humid.

Project teams can propose against one or more of the seven challenges and must include America Makes as an execution partner. Please note this is a two-step proposal process. Step one includes a five-page concept paper and a quad chart, and Step two is an invitation-only overview of presentations. The deadline for submission of the concept packet is Monday, February 6, 2023.
