DARPA-BAA-14-40, System of Systems Integration Technology and Experimentation (SoSITE), Response Date 10/27/2014
DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals to demonstrate that a system of systems (SoS) approach can provide increased military effectiveness, cost leverage (i.e., the cost of the opponent to counter relative to the cost of the US to deploy), and adaptability necessary to maintain U.S. air superiority in contested environments. This broad agency announcement covers Phase 1 of the SoSITE program only. The objective of Phase 1 is to develop architectures for distributing functionality across networks of manned and unmanned platforms for future experimentation, and to develop tools to enable this distribution to be done quickly and reliably. See attached file for the complete solicitation. Industry Day Attendee List
DARPA-BAA-14-44: Wireless Network Defense Phases 2 and 3, Response Date 12/20/2014
The Wireless Network Defense (WND) program is developing and demonstrating new technology to protect the control protocols of wireless networks from the effects of advanced attacks or other forms of compromise. The program focuses on the protocols at the network and medium access control (MAC) layers of the network stack with the goal of protecting those protocols that coordinate among the distributed devices' management of resources such as spectrum, time, and power, and delivery of information. The development of this technology will both improve the robustness of the class of wireless networks that are being procured and fielded in the near future, and also provide a reliable foundation on which to build the next generation of wireless systems. These new defenses will minimize the impact of attacks on network control and will force attacks to be observable and attributable in order to be effective.
DARPA-BAA-14-53: Advanced Scanning Technology for Imaging Radars (ASTIR), Response Date 10/10/2014
DARPA is soliciting research proposals in the area of innovative imaging radar architectures that
can provide high frame-rate, three dimensional imaging of objects through adverse obscurants
(fog, smoke, heavy rain, etc.) without requiring target or platform motion. DARPA is interested
in concepts that provide efficient beam steering and radar imaging using a single transmit/receive
chain and innovative electronic sub-reflector designs. Proposed research should investigate
innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems.
Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the
existing state of practice. Proposers Day
