The Coast Guard announced its intent to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Metamaterials Technologies USA Inc. to evaluate and test the advantages, disadvantages, required technology enhancements, performance, costs and other issues associated with LEP technology.

The Coast Guard Research and Development Center will obtain materials from Metamaterials Technologies USA Inc. to test the performance, reliability, suitability, and effectiveness of their product as laser protective eyewear.

While the Coast Guard is currently considering partnering with Metamaterials Technologies USA Inc., the agency is soliciting public comment on the possible nature of and participation of other parties in the proposed CRADA. In addition, the Coast Guard also invites other potential non-Federal participants to propose similar CRADAs.

Comments and other information must be submitted to the online docket on or before June 24, 2016.
