Description

Help advance how we measure Earth’s magnetic field

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) calls upon solvers to submit novel approaches to geomagnetic data collection for the World Magnetic Model.

On April 4, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. EDT, the MagQuest informational webinar will present an in-depth overview of the challenge, share considerations and guidelines for submissions, and provide details for Phase 1 participation. The session will conclude with a live Q&A.

More about MagQuest:

This NGA open innovation challenge is designed to attract new ideas to increase the efficiency, reliability, and sustainability of geomagnetic data collection. With MagQuest, NGA aims to inspire domestic and international solvers to apply their expertise to spaceborne, aerial, terrestrial, and other potential solution areas. Solvers from small businesses, academic institutions, labs, startups, and other organizations are encouraged to enter the competition.

  • In Phase 1, MagQuest seeks concepts that propose novel methods or technologies that may be promising to provide sufficient data for the WMM.

  • In Phase 2, MagQuest will seek detailed designs and plans for data collection methodologies, including descriptions, 3D models, and hypotheses for prototype development and testing. Phase 2 will be open to solvers from Phase 1, as well as new solvers who did not participate in the first phase of the challenge.

The first two phases (March 2019 through September 2019) will award $1.2 million. At NGA’s discretion, additional phases of the challenge may follow Phase 2. These phases, if executed, are anticipated to award an additional $2.5 million in cash prizes plus potential non-monetary incentives.

Phase 1 submissions are due by May 16, 2019.
