The Defense Sciences Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting and webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the SIGMA+ program’s Network and Analytics thrust area. SIGMA+ will develop a persistent, real-time, early detection system for the full spectrum of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) WMD threats at the city-to-region scale. The Network and Analytics thrust will pursue developments for automated, large-scale intelligence and data analytics for the SIGMA+ system, further developments for the SIGMA network backbone that are expected to be required to perform full fusion of these data and methods, and interface and interoperability.
For background, the SIGMA program began in late 2014 as an effort to significantly advance scalable detection capabilities against radiological and nuclear (RN) weapons of mass destruction (WMD) threats from non-traditional, clandestine attack vectors. SIGMA developed and networked thousands of high-capability, low-cost detectors to demonstrate large-scale, continuously streaming physical sensor networks for the RN interdiction mission. SIGMA capabilities have been tested and operationalized with federal, state, and international partners.
Additional details about the Proposers Day, including registration instructions, are available at go.usa.gov/xPPSB. The registration deadline for in-person participation is 5:00 PM ET on November 1, 2018. The registration deadline for participation by webcast is 5:00 PM ET on November 5, 2018.
Please address administrative questions to SigmaPlus@darpa.mil, and refer to the SIGMA+ Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-19-03) 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 SIGMA+ Networks and Analytics Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
DARPA anticipates sharing additional program details in a forthcoming Broad Agency Announcement to be posted to the Federal Business Opportunities website.
