Overview
CWP leverages U.S. and foreign investments to conduct cooperative research
and development projects with foreign partners. Program supports
Department’s goals of:
• Collaboratively addressing strategic technology gaps for current and future missions
• Developing interoperability solutions for coalition operations
• Strengthening current defense partnerships and developing new relationships
Mechanics:
• Selects projects through annual, competitive process
– Selection process supported by U.S. and partner SMEs
• Request cap is $1M/year of research, development, test and evaluation
(RDT&E) funding for up to 2 years
– CWP Funds pay for U.S. tasks only
– CWP Funds are only a portion of funding for project: Contributions from
U.S. and foreign partners are required and have matching requirements
– Max requests for funding have to be clear “game changers”
• Project must get to sustainable next phase of maturation
