DARPA Conference Center
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) is hosting a Proposers Day in support of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Atomic Clock with Enhanced Stability (ACES) program. The Proposers Day will be held on Monday, February 1, 2016, from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM (EST) at the DARPA Conference Center, located at 675 N. Randolph Street, Arlington, Virginia 22203. The registration deadline is 5:00 PM EST on January 25, 2016. The purpose of this meeting is to provide information and promote additional discussion on the ACES program, address questions from potential proposers, and provide an opportunity for potential proposers to share their capabilities and ideas for teaming arrangements. The ACES Proposers Day will include overview presentations by government personnel, technical presentations by potential proposers and collaborators, and an open poster session to facilitate interaction and teaming.

DARPA Conference Center
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Strategic Technology Office (STO) is hosting a “Sync with STO” event on August 2 – 3, 2017. The purpose of the event is to (1) familiarize attendees with STO’s vision, problem spaces, program managers (PMs), and technology interests; and (2) facilitate technical discussions between STO PMs and attendees that explore innovative and impactful solution ideas for strategic national security challenges. The event is scheduled for August 2 – 3, 2017, at the DARPA Conference Center located at 675 N. Randolph St. Arlington, VA 22203.
The military relies heavily on the Global Positioning System (GPS) for positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT), but GPS access is easily blocked by methods such as jamming. In addition, many environments in which our military operates (inside buildings, in urban canyons, under dense foliage, underwater, and underground) have limited or no GPS access. To solve this challenge, Adaptable Navigation Systems (ANS) seeks to provide GPS-quality PNT to military users regardless of the operational environment.
The goal of All Together Now (ATN) is to develop theoretical protocols and experimental techniques that enable new collective atom regimes, leading to sensitivities approaching the ultimate fundamental limits of performance.
