DARPA Conference Center
DARPA's Tactical Technology Office (TTO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of its upcoming Advanced Full Range Engine (AFRE) program. AFRE seeks to develop and demonstrate a new aircraft propulsion system that could operate over the full range of speeds required from low-speed takeoff through hypersonic flight.

Executive Conference Center
The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Control of Revolutionary Aircraft with Novel Effecters (CRANE) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of CRANE is to design, build, and flight-test a new and novel aircraft that incorporates Active Flow Control (AFC) technologies as a primary design consideration. By optimizing an aircraft for AFC from a clean sheet approach, CRANE aims to mature and demonstrate new trade spaces for future aircraft designs.

DARPA Headquarters
The objective of DARPA’s new ICARUS program is to create vanishing platforms for airborne delivery of small payloads. Supply and re-supply of small military and civilian teams in difficult-to-access territory currently requires large parachute-based delivery systems that must be packed out after receipt of the payload both for operational security and environmental concerns. Last-minute registration for the program’s Proposers Day is possible on-site and potential performers in the program who cannot attend can learn more by way of the registration web page, the Broad Agency Announcement posted on FedBizOpps, and a lay-language DARPA UPdate on the Agency’s web site.

Executive Conference Center
The Defense Sciences Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting and webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Materials Architectures and Characterization for Hypersonics (MACH) program. MACH seeks to develop new materials and designs for cooling the hot leading edges of hypersonic vehicles traveling more than five times the speed of sound.
