ARM COVID-19 Efforts

This page will be updated periodically as we learn about funding opportunities related to COVID-19. On June 29, ARM released a new Technology Project Call soliciting proposals for COVID-19 related projects to help the U.S. Department of Defense respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and future pandemics. This Project Call has now closed and you can read about our selected projects here.

In spring, ARM Members participated in a NIST call for technology and workforce proposals related to mitigating COVID-19. The call for these proposals closed on April 20, 2020 and, despite the short turnaround time, we received more than 70 highly competitive project proposals. More than half a dozen ARM staff and our government partners worked to thoroughly review these proposals using the articulated NIST criteria: Rationality and Merit, Potential Immediate Impact, Resources, and Budget. From this project call, a technology project from ARM Member Wilder Systems was selected for funding.
