DARPA occasionally stands up temporary special projects offices focused on coordinating, developing and/or deploying advanced capabilities on an accelerated time scale. These efforts fall outside of DARPA’s typical program structure and leverage the Agency’s unique organization and skill sets to make rapid progress in technology areas that are critical to national security. DARPA currently operates one special projects office: the Aerospace Projects Office (APO).

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) is sponsoring an Information Day on August 10, 2016, to provide information to potential competitors in the Spectrum Collaboration Challenge as described in DARPA-BAA-16-47 and posted on fbo.gov. On the following day, August 11, the Agency’s SC2 team will hold a Proposers Day for those potentially interested in fulfilling the Challenge’s architectural needs, including the scoring methodology, scenario development for testing competitors’ collaborative strategies and tactics, and means for assuring the integrity of the competition and keeping it free from tampering or other kinds of malfeasance. These aspects of SC2 are fully described in DARPA-BAA-16-48, also posted on fbo.gov. Those interested in both angles of SC2 are welcome to attend both the Information and Proposers Days, which will be held at DARPA, 675 North Randolph Street, Arlington, VA, 22203. Advance registration is required. For more information and to register, visit the SC2 website, https://spectrumcollaborationchallenge.com/. Additional information about both the Information and Proposers Days also is available in a Special Notice posted on fbo.gov.
