OFRN Round 4 Opportunity Announcement

Description

The Ohio Federal Research Network (OFRN) Round 4 Opportunity Announcement is focused on expanding Ohio’s leadership in federal and industry aerospace research, development and sustainment for unmanned air systems (UASs), personal air vehicles (PAVs), and logistics delivery air vehicles (LDAVs). Across the different classes, target applications, and technologies, several barriers persist, including FAA flight certification, safety concerns, and specific technical and market validation needs. The focus of the Round Four Opportunity Announcement is to leverage the unique Federal and Ohio assets to systematically address these challenges.
