Optical frequency synthesizers – systems that output laser beams at precise and stable frequencies – have proven extremely valuable in a variety of scientific endeavors, including space exploration, gas sensing, control of quantum systems, and high-precision light detection and ranging (LIDAR). While they provide unprecedented performance, the use of optical frequency synthesizers has largely been limited to laboratory settings due to the cost, size, and power requirements of their components. To reduce these obstacles to widespread use, DARPA launched the Direct On-Chip Digital Optical Synthesizer (DODOS) program in 2014. Key to the program is the miniaturization of necessary components and their integration into a compact module, enabling broader deployment of the technology while unlocking new applications.

The Microsystems Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information on our new Automatic Implementation of Secure Silicon (AISS) program. AISS will address the economic and technical challenges associated with building in chip security. The program aims to automate the process of incorporating scalable defense mechanisms into chip designs, while allowing designers to explore economics versus security trade-offs, and maximize design productivity. The objective is to develop a design tool and IP ecosystem – which includes tool vendors, chip developers, IP licensers, and the open-source community – that will allow security to be inexpensively incorporated into chip designs with minimal effort and expertise, ultimately making scalable on-chip security pervasive.

DARPA will host a Proposers Day in support of the DREaM program on March 29, 2017 at the Hilton in Arlington, VA, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Participants must register for the DREaM Proposers Day through the registration website by March 27, 2017 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time. More information about the Proposers Day is available in a Special Notice (DARPA-SN-17-24) posted on fbo.gov (ADD URL). The DREaM program’s Broad Agency Announcement (HR001117S0024), which will more fully detail the technical goals and performer requirements, is expected to be released and posted on fbo.gov prior to the Proposers Day.
