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 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

Information Innovation Office (I2O) Office Wide
I2O
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative research proposals of interest to the Information Innovation Office (I2O). I2O explores game-changing technologies in the fields of information science and technology to anticipate and create rapid shifts in the complex national security landscape. Conflict can occur in traditional domains such as land, sea, air, and space, and in emerging domains such as cyber and other types of irregular warfare. I2O's research portfolio is focused on anticipating new modes of warfare in these emerging areas and developing the concepts and tools necessary to provide a decisive information advantage for the U.S. and its allies.

Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) Program Technology Development
TTO
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.
