Booz Allen Hamilton Conference Center
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.

DARPA Bay Area SDR Hackfest
A hackfest, otherwise known as a hackathon or code sprint, is a common way for free and open source software (FOSS) projects to engage and enable communities. As science and technology continue to advance and further accelerate the speed of innovation, DARPA's interest in building common platforms, toolsets, and fundamental skills has grown. That interest has been a long-standing tenet of the Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) community as well, and DARPA believes that building an engagement between the FOSS and DARPA communities will allow both communities to benefit from and promote the use of advanced technology. DARPA's Software Defined Radio (SDR) Hackfests are set up to engage a community that includes more than just the core developers of a project.

The Computer History Museum
At the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, on May 22, 2017, DARPA will host an Information and Teaming Workshop in support of the DARPA Software-Defined Radio (SDR) Bay Area Hackfest. The objective of the Bay Area Hackfest--which will be held November 13-17 at NASA Ames, Moffet Field, California—is to engage and enable a community of interested engineers and scientists working towards the future confluence of radio and information technology.

DARPA Conference Center
DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office is hosting a Proposers Day and webinar to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program. N3 aims to develop a high-resolution, portable neural interface system that is either completely noninvasive or only minutely invasive to enable practical applications of neurotechnology for able-bodied individuals. The envisioned system would be capable of reading from and writing to multiple points in the brain at once. DARPA intends to wrap up the program with a demonstration of a bidirectional system used in a defense-relevant task that could include human-machine interactions with unmanned aerial vehicles, active cyber defense systems, or other properly instrumented Department of Defense systems.

DARPA Conference Center
DARPA’s Information Innovation Office (I2O) will host a Proposers Day on February 6, 2017, to provide information to potential proposers on the new Computational Simulation of Online Social Behavior (SocialSim) program. SocialSim will seek to develop innovative technologies for high-fidelity computational simulation of online social behavior. The program will focus specifically on information spread and evolution.
