Goliath grouper, black sea bass, and snapping shrimp, along with bioluminescent plankton and other microorganisms, are set to be the unlikely heroes of DARPA’s Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS) program. Five teams of researchers are developing new types of sensor systems that detect and record the behaviors of these marine organisms and interpret them to identify, characterize, and report on the presence of manned and unmanned underwater vehicles operating in strategic waters.

The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day to provide information on the structure and objectives of the Angler program. Angler seeks to migrate advancements from terrestrial and space-based robotics, terrestrial autonomous manipulation, and underwater sensing technologies into the realm of undersea manipulation, with specific focus on long-distance, seabed-based missions. Specifically, the program aims to discover innovative autonomous robotic solutions capable of navigating unstructured ocean depths, surveying expansive underwater regions, and physically manipulating manmade objects of interest.

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.

DARPA will host a Proposers Day in support of an upcoming DARPA BAA HR001118S0013, Ocean of Things, on Thursday, January 4, 2018, at the DARPA Conference Center (675 N. Randolph St, Arlington, VA 22203) from 8:00am to 5:00pm EST. Participants must register for the Ocean of Things Proposers Day through the registration website by December 27, 2017 at 12:00pm EST. The purpose of this meeting is to provide information on the Ocean of Things program, promote additional discussion on this topic, address questions from potential proposers, and provide an opportunity for potential proposers to share their capabilities and ideas for teaming arrangements.

DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office is hosting a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS) program. PALS aims to tap into the natural sensing capabilities of marine organisms to detect and signal when activities of interest occur in strategic waters such as straits and littoral regions.
