Naval Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) Working Group call for information on Big Data Assessment and Analytics

Suspense:  16 Feb 2017

Agency: Department of the Navy
Office: OPNAV N98

Mark your Calendars and don’t miss an opportunity to impact the Naval LVC Working Group focused on Big Data Assessment and Analytics spanning Department of the Navy! 

OPNAV N9 is requesting a one to two page white paper by 16 February 2017, on industry’s thoughts on how Big Data Assessment and Analytics can enable better learning and training related to DoN Test and Training challenges.  Naval training systems create and collect massive amounts of data and will soon be able to collect even more.  Currently only a few communities have a program in place to store and analyze this large amount of information.  If properly implemented, OPNAV N9 believes the right assessment and analysis product will allow all users the opportunity to look at trends across each warfare mission area, and find ways to improve operations, training, and tactics.

OPNAV encourages participants to search within their organizations for innovative ideas, emerging technologies and creative approaches to Big Data Assessment and Analytics applications to the synthetic domains.  OPNAV N9 wants to explore these challenges with ideas and solutions beyond what is currently funded or programmed in the near future, including lower Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs).  This request for innovation ideas will be considered proprietary data, with a short submission time closing out on 16 Feb 2017. 

OPNAV is interested in industry and academia innovations and creativity from early TRLs through Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) solutions.  We believe the lower levels of TRLs in our domains are vital and critical to insertions into higher levels of TRLs, future Test and Training integrated systems, and future acquisition roadmaps and contracts.  We look forward to engaging you about your ideas on a later date.  When you submit your white-paper, please indicate (and do NOT send classified info to the UNCLASS address below) the level of classification for your technologies or solutions.  Moreover, please note that any and every piece of proprietary data you provide will be handled accordingly and within all security protocols to protect your data and intellectual property. 

If you are interested in submitting a white-paper, please send to the POC, CDR Daniel Cain, - and copy RADM James Robb, USN (Ret), President, NTSA at - by 16 February 2017.  Technical and administrative questions should be directed to CDR Cain.

The government is not obligated to enter into a contract with Industry as results of collaborations from our dialogue.  Data exchanges as a result of these dialogue activities follow No Foreign Nationals (NOFORN) and International Traffic Arms Regulations (ITAR) restrictions.  Some information we intend to share may be classified or unclassified and can only be released as Distribution C, D, or F material (  This invite is in accordance with FAR provision 52.215-3, Request for Information or Solicitation for Planning Purposes.  No payment will be provided for RFIs received.  Thank you for your interest and we look forward to these government-industry technology engagements.
