About $700,000 dollars are anticipated to be available in FY13 for open research proposals, including participation in the CRUSER field experimentation. In addition, student travel and support is also budgeted, so proposals should include anticipated student travel funding requirements, but not includethat amount in the total requested.
Faculty members who receive CRUSER Research and Experimentation funds are expected to be fully active in supporting CRUSER's goals to include: monthly meeting attendance, presentations, CRUSER News articles, displays at Robots in the Roses, and participation at other CRUSER sponsored events, including presentations to ONR during the ONR CRUSER visit.
Proposed Format: Short (3-6 page) proposals are solicited using the NPS research proposal format. The proposal should use NPS' research proposal signature page, NPS' research Budget Form, and then a document with the following sections. Proposals should be clearly marked as "CRUSER Proposal FY13". Address and send to Director, CRUSER Jeff Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org and Lisa Trawick at email@example.com.
