The client engages in the development of noise-reduction technology for rotorcrafts such as multicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). While the growing use of rotorcrafts is expected in the future, noise reduction has become a challenge. Particularly, low-frequency noise is concerned about an adverse effect on the human body, but there are few effective measures available now. The Client has been developing and exploring technologies mainly inhouse and in collaboration with known suppliers, however, they have not yet identified promising technology that can meet these needs. The client has therefore decided to recruit this technology in order to further accelerate research and development.
Proposal shall have clear points and should not include confidential information. Supplemental files may be submitted in addition to the proposal.
The client will evaluate all responses with the following criteria.
- Overall scientific and technical merit
- Approach to proof of concept or performance
- Economic potential of concept
- Realism of the proposed plan (action items, timeline, roles, deliverables, cost estimation)
- Potential for proprietary position
- Respondents’ capability and related experiences
Anticipated Project Process
After the submission due date, the client will review all submitted proposals. NineSigma will send the review results to each proposer 6-8 weeks after the due date. The client possibly asks clarifying questions before selecting the most suitable candidates for collaboration. The client will select best candidates through evaluations. During the selection process, the client may execute NDA with selected respondents, seek further information disclosure, and discuss specific development targets or potential opportunities.
The client will execute necessary agreements with the selected respondents and move to the advanced development phase. Specifics of any collaboration will be determined through consultation with the concerned parties.
