DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new Consortium for Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS). Through CONFERS, DARPA aims to establish an industry/government forum composed of experts from throughout the space community. Participants would leverage best practices from government and industry to research, develop, and publish non-binding, consensus-derived technical and safety standards for on-orbit servicing operations. In doing so, the program would provide a clear technical basis for definitions and expectations of responsible behavior in outer space.
The Proposers Day will be held on Friday, December 16, 2016, at DARPA’s offices in Arlington, Va. Advance registration is required: https://www.client-meeting.net/DARPA-TTO-CONFERS-Proposers-Day. Additional details are provided in a Special Notice: http://go.usa.gov/xkSyQ. Full program details, including instructions for submitting a proposal, will be made available in a forthcoming Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) on the Federal Business Opportunities website: http://go.usa.gov/xkhCj. For more information, please email HR001117S0006@darpa.mil.
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, Proposer Days are open only to registered potential proposers. The event is closed to the general public and media. Media inquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
