In its pursuit of enhanced and unmatched agility, mobility, and survivability for the future expeditionary forces, ONR 30 is seeking information from US and non-US sources to identify new innovative concepts, areas of research and approaches to provide conventional and non-conventional boosting power to deliver enhanced thrust and possible lift of the amphibious vehicle. There is a need for superior amphibious mobility for Ship To Objective Maneuver (STOM).

The offerers are free to propose:
• Any technology that is currently available (high Technology Readiness Level) to futuristic solutions (low Technology Readiness Level). Please provide the range of deliverable thrust and the weight of the device.
• Any and all propulsion systems, but higher power density and smaller volume will be of greater interest.
• Any technologies mounted to any portions of the vehicle (the transom, the underside, the outside, etc.) One approach is a strap-on, removable, and stowable auxiliary propulsion appliqué system.
• Any technologies for primary propulsion, such as a tip-driven, counter-rotating electric drive propulsor, are also of interest.
