Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyWork With UsOpportunities

Opportunities

Established in 1958 as part of the U.S. Department of Defense, DARPA pursues opportunities for transformational change rather than incremental advances. It does so collaboratively as part of a robust innovation ecosystem that includes academic, corporate, and governmental partners. To fulfill its mission, the Agency relies on diverse performers from throughout this ecosystem to apply multi-disciplinary approaches to both advance knowledge through basic research and create innovative technologies that address current and predicted practical problems through applied research. The list of selected opportunities displayed below is provided for convenience. For a complete listing of DARPA opportunities please visit the FedBizOpps website. More

In addition to program-specific opportunities, each DARPA technical office maintains an “office-wide” Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) that covers a range of technical areas of interest to each particular office. The office-wide BAAs are refreshed on an annual basis and offer a mechanism for researchers to reach DARPA with ideas that they feel could be valuable to national security.

A MEchanically Based Antenna (AMEBA)
MTO
DARPA seeks innovative proposals to develop mechanically-driven transmitters producing radio frequency (RF) signals at carrier frequencies below 30 kHz. The program will develop the basic technologies and demonstrate the feasibility of low-size, weight, and power (SWaP) transmitters satisfying the requirements of representative DoD missions. 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.

Lifelong Learning Machines (L2M) Proposers Day
MTO
The L2M Proposers Day will provide information on the L2M program, promote additional discussion on the topic, address questions from potential proposers, and provide an opportunity for potential proposers to share concepts and capabilities and explore teaming arrangements. The L2M Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is expected to be released prior to the Proposers Day.

Dynamic Range-enhanced Electronics and Materials (DREaM) Proposers Day
MTO
The purpose of this meeting is to provide information on the DREaM program, promote additional discussion on this topic, address questions from potential proposers, and provide an opportunity for potential proposers to share their capabilities and ideas for teaming arrangements. The DREaM BAA is expected to be released prior to the Proposers Day.

Potential Opportunity to Discuss New DSO Research Initiatives Request for Information (RFI)
DSO
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) announces the opportunity for potential performers to meet with a DSO program manager (PM) to discuss mutual research interests.
3/29/2017
Atomic Magnetometer for Biological Imaging In Earth’s Native Terrain (AMBIIENT) Proposers Day
MTO
The purpose of this meeting is to provide information and promote additional discussion on the AMBIIENT program, address questions from potential proposers, and provide an opportunity for potential proposers to share their capabilities and ideas for teaming arrangements. The AMBIIENT Proposers Day will include overview presentations by government personnel and technical presentations by potential proposers and collaborators.
