The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Manta Ray program and to facilitate teaming. The principal objective of Manta Ray is to open a design space for future unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) that are capable of both long duration missions and large payload capacity. A secondary goal of the program is to advance key technologies that will benefit other naval designs such as low lifecycle cost UUV operations, long duration undersea energy management techniques, biofouling reduction technologies, and long duration navigational enablers.
The Proposers Day will consist of two sessions: one general unclassified session in the morning open only to registered potential proposers, followed by one session classified at the SECRET level for further details that is open only to registered potential proposers with a SECRET Clearance or above. Attendance to the classified session will not be required to participate in the Manta Ray Program, although it is anticipated that only cleared proposers will be able to respond to the Manta Ray BAA.
Additional details on the Proposers Day, including registration instructions, are available at https://go.usa.gov/xmDa2. Registration closes at 4:00 PM EDT on May 6, 2019, or when capacity is reached.
Please address administrative questions to DARPA-SNfirstname.lastname@example.org and refer to the Manta Ray Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-19-44) in all correspondence.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to 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, the Manta Ray Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
