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.
Program Manager
Dr. Jeff Maas joined DARPA in April 2018 as a program manager in the Strategic Technology Office. Dr. Maas' research interests include electronic warfare applications involving distributed systems, real-time effectiveness monitoring, and strategic employment concepts.

The Blackjack program will develop and demonstrate the critical technical elements for building a global high-speed network architecture in low earth orbit (LEO) that enables highly networked, resilient, and persistent DoD payloads that hold the ground, surface, and air domains in global constant custody. This opportunity focuses on Blackjack Pit Boss, an architecture and associated software/hardware approach providing a proliferated LEO (P-LEO) system the ability to continuously deliver perishable target data to selected subscribers, without the need for (1) commanding from human satellite operators; or (2) ground-based payload data processing and exploitation. An overarching goal is to dramatically reduce the time required to task, collect, process, exploit, and disseminate critical target data during peacetime and conflict.
