DARPA-BAA-13-22: Innovative Systems for Military Missions - DARPA Tactical Technology Office (TTO), Response Date 4/9/2014
The Tactical Technology Office of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is soliciting executive summaries, white papers and proposals for advanced research and development of Innovative Systems for Military Missions. This solicitation seeks system and subsystem level technologies that enable revolutionary improvements to the efficiency and effectiveness of the military. Novel concepts are sought in the following focus areas: Ground Systems, Maritime Systems, Air Systems, and Space Systems. Proposals may be submitted at any time while this solicitation is open. TTO may publish groups of special topics as modifications to this BAA throughout the year.
DARPA-SN-13-34: Digitizing SQUAD X: Sensing, Communications, Mission Command, and Soldier-Worn Backbone (RFI), Response Date 5/22/2013
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Tactical Technology Office (TTO) is seeking specific technological information and innovative ideas that can be used to inform a potential new program focused on demonstrating the advantages of an organically digitized and interconnected dismounted squad.
DARPA-BAA-13-19: Vertical Take-Off and Landing Experimental Aircraft (VTOL X-Plane), Response Date 6/4/2013
The DARPA Tactical Technology Office is soliciting proposals on the design, development and demonstration of a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) experimental aircraft (X-Plane) with exceptional performance in vertical and cruise flight, and operational capability through transition from vertical to forward flight. The purpose of the program is to champion the design and development of sub-system technologies and integrated air vehicle configurations that will enable radical improvements in VTOL flight. The program will demonstrate an aircraft capable of sustained flight at high speeds, improved hover and cruise efficiencies that are significantly greater than contemporary rotary-wing aircraft, and increased useful load fractions and aircraft functionality.
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.
