science and engineering discipline to address issues of critical concern to the DoD. As defined by
the DoD, “basic research is systematic study directed toward greater knowledge or understanding
of the fundamental aspects of phenomena and of observable facts without specific applications
towards processes or products in mind. It includes all scientific study and experimentation
directed toward increasing fundamental knowledge and understanding in those fields of the
physical, engineering, environmental, and life sciences related to long-term national security
needs. It is farsighted high payoff research that provides the basis for technological progress.”
(www.defenselink.mil/comptroller/fmr/02b/02b_05.pdf). The DoD’s basic research program
invests broadly in many specific fields to ensure that it has early cognizance of new scientific
knowledge.

A.2 Subsonic Fixed Wing (SSFW1) (Recovery Act)
Due Date: 30 October 2009
http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&flag2006=false&oppId=49657
Purpose: To develop system-level, multi-disciplinary capabilities for both civilian and military
applications. The program also provides long-term investment in research to support and sustain
expert competency in critical core areas of aeronautics technology. The Fundamental
Aeronautics Program encompasses research and technology spanning four (4) flight regimes:
Subsonic Fixed Wing, Subsonic Rotary Wing, Supersonics and Hypersonics. It also supports
NASA’s Vision for Space Exploration by providing key aeronautical capabilities that can be
adapted for high-speed vehicles exiting and entering the atmosphere of our planet as well as
operating throughout the atmospheres of other planetary bodies such as Mars.
ROA 2009: A.3 Subsonic Rotary Wing Project (SSRW1)
Due Date: 20 November 2009
http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&flag2006=false&oppId=49782
Purpose: To develop validated physics-based multidisciplinary design and analysis tools for
rotorcraft, integrated with technology development, enabling rotorcraft with advanced
capabilities to fly as designed for any mission. Meeting this challenge will require innovative
technologies and methods, with an emphasis on integrated, multidisciplinary, first-principle
computational tools specifically applicable to the unique problems of rotary wing aircraft. The
focus of the Subsonic Rotary Wing project of the Fundamental Aeronautics program is the civil
utility of rotorcraft. Several facets will be addressed at the fundamental research level:
efficiency, including aerodynamic performance and structural weight; productivity, which
requires high speed, large payload, long range, and good maneuverability; and environmental
acceptance, particularly noise and handling qualities. Without intending to predict where the
design process will lead when truly effective design and analysis tools are available, some very
promising (and very challenging) configurations can be identified to drive the required
fundamental research.

Due Date: 25 November 2009
http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&flag2006=false&oppId=49846
The Project supports the Fundamental Aeronautics Program strategy of developing systems level
multidisciplinary capabilities for supersonic civilian and military applications. The Supersonics
Project is a broad-based effort designed to develop knowledge, capabilities and technologies that
support vehicles that fly in the supersonic speed regime with a focus on eliminating the
efficiency, environmental and performance barriers to practical supersonic cruise vehicles. The
Project has identified a set of key Technical Challenges that are barriers to success for this
vehicle type.

Nuclear Education Curricula Development Grant, Fiscal Year 2010
Due Date: 1 February 2010
http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&flag2006=false&oppId=49895
Purpose: To support courses, studies, training, curricula, and disciplines pertaining to nuclear
safety, nuclear security, nuclear environmental protection, and other fields that the Commission
determines to be critical to the NRC’s regulatory mission. The NRC Nuclear Education Grant
Program’s primary purpose is supporting and developing the educational infrastructure necessary
to allow the Nation to safely move its nuclear energy initiatives forward.
Scholarship and Fellowship Education Grant, Fiscal Year 2010
Due Date: 16 December 2009
http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&flag2006=false&oppId=49896
Purpose: For undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships, the nuclear development
supported by this funding is intended to benefit the nuclear sector broadly. Consequently, NRC
requires scholarship and fellowship recipients to serve six (6) months in nuclear-related
employment for each full or partial year of academic support. The employment may be with
NRC, other Federal agencies, State agencies, Department of Energy laboratories, nuclear-related
industry, or academia in the recipients sponsored fields of study. NRC may waive, in whole or in
part, the service obligation, upon determination that compliance by the individual is impractical.
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
Civic Education in Georgia Grant
Due Date: 19 December 2009
http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&flag2006=false&oppId=49891
Purpose: The program will activate students’ knowledge about democratic institutions, principles
and practices, instill an ethic of participatory democracy in teachers, students and administrators,
and create a foundation for constructive and effective citizen participation in Georgia’s political
processes. The main focus of this project will be on school-based civic education for older
students (grades 9 – 12). The principal counterpart in the Government of Georgia (GOG) will be
the Ministry of Education and Science (MES). The project will also collaborate with individual
schools, school boards, teachers, students, local NGOs, publishers and others to address a variety
of improvements in this sector.
