Rapid Development of New Formulations to enable Counter-HME operations

Buried improvised explosive devices (IED), person-borne IEDs and vehicle-borne IEDs are employed against U.S. or coalition forces anywhere in the world, but especially in Afghanistan. The manufacture and transport of homemade explosives (HME) and their precursor chemicals enables these IEDs. JIEDDO is seeking focused, short-term (i.e. 3-6 months) studies that will define the signatures and available observables for these various IEDs and HMEs, as well as aid in the development of capabilities to counter these threats.

JIEDDO is seeking focused, short-term (i.e. 3-6 months) studies that will define the signatures and available observables for these various IEDs and HMEs, as well as aid in the development of capabilities to counter these threats. Proposals must address one of the following requirements:A. New formulations of ammonium nitrate (AN) based fertilizer that decrease detonability and explosive output. (See Section II)B. Additives and methods to disrupt or discourage HME manufacturing from fertilizer precursors. (See Section III)C. Additives and methods for increased detection and identification of HMEs and precursors during transport, manufacture and IED emplacement. (See Section IV)D. Enabling ground truth studies. (See Section V)See attached BAA document for full description of requirements.
All proposals must be submitted to the JIEDDO BAA Information Delivery System (BIDS) website at https://bids.acqcenter.com/JIEDDO.
