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 OFFensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics (OFFSET) program. OFFSET seeks to dramatically increase the effectiveness of small-unit combat forces operating in urban environments by developing and demonstrating 100+ operationally relevant swarm tactics that could be used by groups of unmanned air and/or ground systems numbering more than 100 robots. These swarm tactics for large teams of unmanned assets would help improve force protection, firepower, precision effects, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. OFFSET plans to offer frequent opportunities for engagement with anticipated end users in the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps and would share successfully tested swarm tactics with them on a rolling basis.
The Proposers Day will be held on Monday, January 30, 2017, at DARPA’s offices in Arlington, Va. Advance registration is required: https://www.eiseverywhere.com/ehome/207084. Additional details about the event are provided in a Special Notice: http://go.usa.gov/x8WCa. Full program details, including instructions for submitting a proposal, will be available in a forthcoming Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) available on the Federal Business Opportunities website (http://go.usa.gov/xkhCj). For more information, please email DARPA-SNemail@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
