Technical Experimentation Terms & Conditions

After review of the technology experimentation paper submissions, the Government may invite select candidates to demonstrate their capabilities in Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) hosted experiments, to be held quarterly at Camp Roberts, CA. These experiments will provide an opportunity for the submitter to interact with DoD and DHS personnel for the purpose of assessing potential impact of emerging technology solutions on DoD & DHS missions and capabilities. Papers may be reviewed by DoD & DHS personnel, support contractors or NPS facility, staff or students. Select respondents will be invited to participate in JIFX experiments; NPS shall furnish venues, some supporting infrastructure and assessment (operational and technical) personnel at no cost of the respondent.The respondent's travel costs and technology experiments will be at the respondent's expense. NPS conducts quarterly experiments in cooperation with the US Combatant Commands and DHS at Camp Roberts, CA. These experiments are conducted with representatives from Government Research and Development (R&D) organizations, academia, private industry, and non-profit organizations. The experiments provide an opportunity for technology developers to interact with operational personnel and determine how their efforts might support special operations capabilities. The environment facilitates a collaborative working relationship between academia, government, and industry and supports identification, assessment, and dissemination of emerging and mature technology information and the acceleration of delivery of capabilities to DoD and DHS personnel. These experiments are designed to evaluate and improve technologies that provide potential utility to warfighters and first responders.Network Disclaimer The JIFX-TNT network is a non-production network and does NOT have uniform security requirements or accreditation across all systems that use it. Network and traffic monitoring may also occur at any time as part of individual experiments or to collect network performance data. Computer and network security measures should be managed by each participant as is appropriate to the systems and information being used in each experiment. Participants should inform the network engineering team of any specific network security issues or requirements prior to the experiment.Notice All Visitors will be required to wear an NPS provided name badge.Legal Disclaimers or Issues All participation is at the participants own risk. By attending you agree that you will hold harmless the United States Government and the California National Guard for any and all liabilities.ITAR Disclaimers or Issues Each participant is responsible for complying with any and all ITAR/EARS requirements associated with the participant's equipment. Similarly, participants are responsible for the protection of their own intellectual property.
