The total amount of the initial award is $10M over 5-years with an option for another five years with additonal award of $12.5M.

The objective of the MAST CTA is to perform enabling research and technology transition to enhance tactical situational awareness in urban and complex terrain by enabling the autonomous operation of a collaborative ensemble of multifunctional, mobile microsystems. To achieve this objective, the Alliance is expected to advance fundamental science and technology in several key areas including:

  • Microsystem Mechanics
  • Processing for Autonomous Operation
  • Microelectronics, and
  • Platform Integration

The MAST CTA "Center on Microsystem Mechanics" is coordinated through the Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center (AGRC) at the University of Maryland (UM), which serves as the Principal Member.
