The U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command, Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), Fort Detrick, MD will be opening the Advanced Medical Technology Initiative (AMTI), formally AMEDD Advanced Medical Technology Initiative (AAMTI) proposal submission process for FY22. AMTI utilizes an electronic system to accept pre-proposal submissions, to access click the grey button.
Advanced Medical Technology Initiative (AMTI) Program facilitates bottom-up technology innovation while simultaneously informing top-down acquisition throughout Military Medicine. Program execution encompasses small funding investments at the facility/individual level in two distinct categories: Rapid Innovation Funding (RIF) and Extended Innovation Funding (EIF) for which the period of performance for each category is limited to 6 and 18 months respectively.
Identification, exploration, and demonstration of key technologies and enabling biomedical principles required to overcome technological barriers that are medically and militarily unique.
Explore, Integrate, Innovate, Automate, Deliver
Advanced Medical Technology Initiative (AMTI) Program facilitates bottom-up technology innovation while simultaneously informing top-down acquisition. Demonstrate emerging medical technologies and documenting their impact on PERFORMANCE (Lethality), READINESS, COST, ACCESS, QUALITY, and SAFETY through a bottom-up (provider/MTF level) approach. Provides leadership with medical tech-surveillance capability
The AMTI is focused on identifying, exploring, and demonstrating key technologies and enabling biomedical principles required to overcome technological barriers that are medically and militarily unique. This initiative and Call for Proposals plays a vital role in the fulfillment of these objectives to include advanced technology development, demonstration and validation of important new technologies and procedures.
Submissions to the AMTI Call for Proposals should be innovative, non-duplicative, acquisition sensitive, collaborative and implementable within AMTI funding timeframes. AMTI is an intramural program and only military or civilian assigned to a Military Treatment Facility or Operational Unit may apply.
Each submission will be evaluated based upon the following criteria: military relevance, innovative concept, metrics for success and potential return on investment (ROI). Those Innovators whose pre-proposals are evaluated to be of greatest interest will be invited to submit a full proposal, which will be evaluated by the AMTI Full Proposal Review Panel. Funding is made available on a year by year basis and follow-on funding is not authorized.
Questions concerning the preparation of submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
