This announcement seeks revolutionary research ideas for topics not being addressed by ongoing BTO programs or other published solicitations.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative proposals for the second phase of a two-phase program to design, develop, and manufacture low-cost, persistent maritime floats that sense and report relevant data from the physical and operational environment. The program, Ocean of Things, is a vital part of the Mosaic Warfare end-state vision. Proposed solutions should develop innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems and innovative approaches to apply existing technology not previously applied to the maritime domain. Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice.

DARPA's Strategic Technology Office (STO) is seeking innovative ideas and disruptive technologies that provide the U.S. military increased lethality in an era of eroding dominance within the focus areas of the broader Mosaic Warfare objective: Mosaic Technologies, Mosaic Effects Web Services (EWS), and Mosaic Experimentation.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Tactical Technology Office (TTO) seeks to enable extended transoceanic transit and long range naval operations by exploiting the efficiencies of a system of connected vessels (Sea Train). The Sea Train will demonstrate long range deployment capabilities for a distributed fleet of tactical Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs).

The No Manning Required, Ship (NOMARS) program will design, build, and field test an unmanned surface ship that can operate autonomously for long durations at sea with no human interventions or underway maintenance. NOMARS will challenge the traditional naval architecture paradigm by starting with a clean-sheet ship design process that eliminates design considerations associated with crew. NOMARS is a two-phased program, but this BAA seeks full proposals for Phase 1 (comprised of two tracks) only. This period will explore the NOMARS design space from Conceptual Design Review (CoDR) through Preliminary Design Review (PDR) and system definition.
