FY15 Project on Advanced Systems and Concepts for Countering WMD (PASCC)


Tuesday, March 31, 2015


This BAA’s primary objective is to attract outstanding researchers and scholars who will investigate topics of interest to the security studies community. Investigations and research will focus on expanding knowledge related to countering weapons of mass destruction and weapons of mass effect (WMD/WME). The program solicits innovative proposals for research on WMD/WME counterproliferation, nonproliferation, and strategy to be conducted during the January 2015 through September 2016 timeframe.In this BAA, the phrase “security studies research” refers to investigations in all disciplines, fields, and domains that (1) are involved in expanding knowledge for national defense, and (2) could potentially improve policy and international relations for combating WMD/WME. Disciplines include, but are not limited to: political science, sociology, history, biology, chemistry, economics, homeland defense, and public policy.PASCC FY15 Research:PASCC will select a number of proposals for research and dialogues for FY15-16 funding. The number will depend on resources available and on the quantity/quality of proposals responsive to this BAA. Offerors are invited to propose research that addresses topics within the following general categories:1. Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD, defined as nuclear, chemical, and biological) and weapons of mass effect (WME, defined as other high-casualty or high-disruption weapons that might have “strategic” effects). 2. WMD/WME delivery systems (including missiles, aircraft, ships, submarines, and unconventional modes).3. Management and prevention mechanisms/regimes. 4. WMD/WME issues in less-studied regions (defined as areas besides Europe/Russia and China).5. Multi-domain threats to strategic stability.
