Responses to this announcement are sought to demonstrate and increase
high-speed flight capabilities and performance for expendable
supersonic vehicles. RATTLRS is a joint project between the Navy, Air
Force, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and
potentially other government agencies. There are two aspects to this
project. The first, RATTLRS Flight Demonstration Project (RATTLRS FDP)
includes concept studies, design, development, fabrication and test of
flight vehicles. The goal of the RATTLRS FDP is to conduct at least
three demonstration flights, with the first flight thirty-six (36) to
thirty-eight (38) months after contract award, and the project
completed forty-eight (48) months after award. The second aspect is the
optional RATTLRS Technology Development Project (TDP), focused towards
developing and maturing technologies for inclusion in potential future
high-speed flight demonstrations. The potential for additional flight
demonstrations depends upon risk reduction, technology development
rationale and funding availability. Please see the attached document
for full BAA announcement and requirements. The BAA is also available
at the ONR website
