News | May 16, 2022 | By:

ERDCWERX, in collaboration with the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), is seeking prototype concepts from non-traditional defense contractors that expedite vehicle maneuver across weak soils or degraded/under-designed infrastructure. Interested parties with or without a registration, are encouraged to submit a brief white paper for potential virtual pitch and funding consideration by ERDC.

Desired attributes of prototype solutions include, but are not limited to:

  • Comprised of fabric or geotextile materials that can be delivered in rolls
  • Have a maximum weight of 12 lbs. per square yard
  • Contain resin or other embedded material that undergoes curing through activation by water, ultraviolet light, or other mechanism to stiffen the fabric when activated

The government anticipates up to three awards through fiscal year 2023. The total estimate for a single award is $100,000 (up to $300,000 total).

Submissions will be accepted through May 25. For details and to submit, visit
