DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new A MEchanically Based Antenna (AMEBA) program. The objective of the AMEBA program is to develop mechanically driven transmitters producing radio frequency (RF) signals at carrier frequencies below 30 kHz. The AMEBA program will invest in basic research and development towards low-loss, precision-controlled, mechanical RF transmitter systems. AMEBA will also develop electric and magnetic materials that enable practical realizations of the mechanical transmitter concepts and designs. 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.
The Proposers Day will be held on Monday, January 6, 2017, at the Booz Allen Hamilton Conference Center in McLean, VA. Advance registration is required: http://www.cvent.com/d/yvqr69. Additional details about the event are provided in a Special Notice: https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/DARPA/CMO/DARPA-SN-17-12 /listing.html. Full program details, including instructions for submitting a proposal, are available in the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) associated with the AMEBA program and that is available on the Federal Business Opportunities website (https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/DARPA/CMO/HR001117S0007/listing.html).
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to promote teaming arrangements between researchers; provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the government’s research and development solicitations; and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, Proposers Days are open only to registered potential proposers. The event is closed to the general public and media. Media inquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
