DARPA-BAA-13-29: DARPA Strategic Technology Office (STO) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), Response Date 9/18/2014
DARPA is seeking innovative ideas and disruptive technologies that offer the potential for significant capability improvement across the Strategic Technology Office (STO) focus areas. This includes system and technology development related to Battle Management (BM), Command and Control (C2), Communications, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), Electronic Warfare (EW), and Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT). Technologies of particular interest would address challenges of operating in contested, denied, and/or austere environments.
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-14-17: Distributed Battle Management Program, Response Date 8/20/2014
DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of Distributed Battle Management (DBM), i.e., the development and demonstration of software decision aids (decision support tools and advanced automation) to assist airborne battle managers and pilots manage air-to-air and air-to-ground combat. Tools are needed in order manage emerging complex systems of systems (which may include multi-platform capabilities and unmanned systems) in a complex high tempo environment in which communication is not assured.
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.
