DARPA-BAA-12-64: Microsystems Technology Office-wide, Response Date 9/1/2014
This announcement seeks revolutionary research ideas for topics not being addressed by ongoing MTO programs or other published BAA solicitations.
DARPA-BAA-13-26: Arrays at Commercial Timescales (ACT), Response Date 6/17/2013
ACT aims to dramatically shorten the timescales associated with electromagnetic array development, deployment and upgrade. Specifically, this program will depart from traditional highly-specialized and time-consuming array design methodologies and focus on three enabling thrust areas: 1) realization of a common hardware module that can be broadly applied to many disparate array functions, 2) development of a reconfigurable electromagnetic interface capable of supporting a wide variety of parameters such as different polarizations, frequencies, bandwidths, etc. and 3) demonstration of a scalable infrastructure in which arrays on physically disconnected platforms can be coherently combined into a larger effective aperture through the use of precise timing and localization data.
DARPA-SN-13-36: Advanced Cathode Development - Request for Information, Response Date 5/24/2013
The Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) seeks information on advanced thermionic and “cold” cathode electron emitter concepts and technologies that may support a new DARPA program to dramatically increase the Department of Defense’s (DoD) capabilities in compact, high power, high frequency vacuum electronic devices.
DARPA-BAA-13-23: Vanishing Programmable Resources (VAPR), Response Date 5/23/2013
Sophisticated electronic microsystems can now be made at such low cost that they are increasingly pervasive throughout the battlefield and large numbers can be widely proliferated and used for applications such as distributed remote sensing and communications. However, it is nearly impossible to track and recover every device, resulting in unintended accumulation in the environment as well as subsequent unauthorized use. DARPA seeks innovative proposals to address this pervasive challenge by developing electronic systems capable of physically disappearing in a controlled, triggerable manner. The goal of the Vanishing Programmable Resources (VAPR) BAA is to develop and establish a basis set of materials, components, integration, and manufacturing capabilities to undergird this new class of electronics.FAQ
