The NAMC as part of the Defense Mobility Enterprise (DME), a collaboration with the Vehicle and Robotics Alliance (VRA), operates under an Annual Plan Cycle. Projects included in a DME Annual Plan cycle are specifically targeted to NAMC Members. These projects highlight desired technology to be pursued based on estimated funding availability and are divided up into correlating Objective Areas. The technology being pursued ranges from providing simulations to demonstrating particular capabilities. The Annual Plan represents the majority of projects being submitted through the DME for any Fiscal Year (FY). However, classified projects and special need projects may be solicited outside of the Annual Plan as Ad Hoc RPPs throughout the Annual Cycle.
