The hard truth about government contracting is that unsolicited proposals can get lost among thousands of others on a digital portal. Those that make it through are too often from companies that have cracked the code on federal solicitations and know how to work the system.

We are working to change that.


We align stakeholders and secure funding from the start. So you can be sure your ideas are reviewed directly by Army decision makers with immediate needs and real budgets


Each opportunity through AAL is announced on our social channels and here, on our website, so you don't have to dig through confusing government websites to find the right thing.


Our submission process is streamlined to focus on content over form. That creates a level playing field for companies that don't have dedicated BD teams or proposal writers.

If you're interested in working with us, sign up to receive more information on specific opportunities when they go live.


For every SPARTN topic, you’ll typically have 28 days to ask questions before the application window opens, and then up to 28 days to apply. Take advantage of these resources to get smart and get ready to apply.

SoldierSync // #A224-012

Gathering data from wearables is a real challenge. But that data can advance the fitness and well-being of Soldiers, if we collect the right things and we know what they mean. That's where your expertise comes in. The Army wants a portable hub that automatically syncs data from Soldiers' wearable devices for further analysis.

Survivability Coatings // #A224-011

High-energy lasers have become a threat to unmanned aircraft systems (UASs). Protective coating technology for aircrafts/weapon systems are needed to counter directed-energy weapons. The Army wants a rapid solution that is easy to install at a low cost. The solution will also need to be air-cooled and have no power requirement other than environmental if necessary.

Unmanned Aircraft System Propulsion // #A224-008

Motor-generator (M-G) system technology is designed for equipment that operates on the ground — not the sky. This makes it too bulky, heavy, and electrically unsound to power the unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) of the future properly. The Army wants a compact, lightweight motor-generator system with a controller to power next-gen electrified UASs.

Electric Combat Vehicle Tactical Battlefield Recharger (TBR) System // A224-007

Tactical Battlefield Rechargers (TBR) need to be designed to deploy into austere battlefield environments to provide recharge capabilities for electric combat vehicles, forward operating bases, and provide the power required by Army units to operate. We seek modular solutions that can be scaled over time and will reduce dependence on generators as well as be capable of accepting power from a host grid to reduce fuel consumption.
