LOOKNorth periodically calls for proposals for technology development and/or validation projects for industry-relevant remote sensing technologies. Please contact Program Manager Neil Cater (email@example.com/ 709-864-7808) to discuss criteria for industry relevance.
Proposals provided to LOOKNorth are examined by an evaluation team approved by the Advisory Committee to determine how well they match LOOKNorth’s criteria and desired impacts. The recommendations of the evaluation team are reviewed by the management team and advisory committee, who present the selected projects to the Board of Directors for approval.
Typically, LOOKNorth will co-fund eligible technology projects up to 50% of eligible project costs* to a maximum of $50k LOOKNorth funding per project. The remaining funds must be provided from an industry sector co-sponsor. Technology validation projects will be supported for a maximum of two (2) years.
*Eligible costs are outlined in the CECR Program Guide, Appendix D, which can be found at on the NCE website.
At present, LOOKNorth is calling for proposals for Unmanned Aerial Systems BVLOS Capability Development. Download the PDF here.
