Description

Aerospace expert Dr. James Cutler will share best practices on July 30

Join this webinar to hear from Dr. James Cutler from the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan. He will discuss how solvers might approach the Concept of Operations (ConOps) for their Phase 2 submissions, as well as program management considerations for risk assessment, schedule, budget, and team structure.

This webinar is the third in a series of three Phase 2 webinars. The first webinar, held on July 10, provided an in-depth orientation to Phase 2 of the global competition and concluded with a live Q&A. The second, held on July 24, provided an overview of technical considerations. Subscribe to the MagQuest newsletter to receive recordings of past webinars and all competition updates.

About MagQuest:

MagQuest is a $1.2 million global competition to advance how we measure Earth’s magnetic field. This open innovation challenge is designed to attract new ideas to increase the efficiency, reliability, and sustainability of geomagnetic data collection for the World Magnetic Model (WMM). With MagQuest, NGA is inspiring solvers to apply their expertise to a wide range of potential solution areas.

  • In Phase 1, MagQuest sought concepts that proposed novel methods or technologies that may provide sufficient data for the WMM. The challenge awarded $200,000 to 10 Phase 1 winners.

  • In Phase 2, MagQuest seeks detailed designs and plans for data collection methodologies, including a concept of operations, a description of expected performance and potential risks, and an overview of potential future program management. Phase 2 is open to solvers from Phase 1, as well as new solvers who did not participate in the first phase of the challenge, and will award $1 million in cash prizes. Phase 2 submissions are due by August 28, 2019.

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 nonmonetary incentives.
