Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyWork With UsOpportunities


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 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

Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) Office-Wide Broad Agency Announcement (BAA)
This announcement seeks revolutionary research ideas for topics not being addressed by ongoing MTO programs or other published BAA solicitations.
Strategic Technologies
DARPA is seeking innovative ideas and disruptive technologies that offer the potential for significant capability improvement across the Strategic Technology Office focus areas. This includes technology development related to Battle Management, Command and Control (BMC2), Communications and Networks, Electronic Warfare, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT), Maritime, and Foundational Strategic Technologies and Systems.
Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) Program Technology Development
The GXV-T effort will investigate ground vehicle technologies that enable a next generation of ground vehicles that improve survivability and mobility. This will be accomplished through research and development of novel ground combat and tactical vehicle technology solutions resulting in significantly advanced platform mobility, agility, and survivability. Technology development is the core of the GXV-T program. The Government seeks solutions across a range of technology areas, including the design, development, testing, and evaluation of technologies at the subsystem level. Solutions are to be matured from concepts to a subsystem demonstration by the end of the program.
Biological Technologies EZ BAA
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative research proposals of interest to the Biological Technologies Office (BTO). Of particular interest are those proposals from entities (both small and large business) that have never received Government funding, or who do not normally propose to Government solicitations
Innovative Systems for Military Missions
The Tactical Technology Office (TTO) of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting executive summaries, white papers and proposals for advanced research, development and demonstration 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.
Biological Technologies
This announcement seeks revolutionary research ideas for topics not being addressed by ongoing BTO programs or other published solicitations.
Precise Robust Inertial Guidance for Munitions: Advanced Inertial Micro Sensors (PRIGM:AIMS)
The DARPA Microsystems Technology Office is soliciting research proposals in the development of novel technologies for high-performance miniature inertial sensors. The PRIGM:AIMS program will address the challenge of precise navigation of guided munitions in the absence of external navigation aids, such as GPS.
Defense Sciences Research and Technology
The mission of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is to identify and pursue high-risk, high-payoff research initiatives across a broad spectrum of science and engineering disciplines and to transform these initiatives into important, radically new, game-changing technologies for U.S. national security.
