The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) announces the opportunity for potential performers to meet with a DSO program manager (PM) to discuss mutual research interests. These meetings will be held in conjunction with the Discover DSO Day event scheduled for June 18-19, 2019 in Arlington, Virginia.
The mission of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is to identify and pursue high-risk, high-payoff research initiatives across a broad spectrum of science and engineering disciplines and to transform these initiatives into disruptive technologies for U.S. national security. In support of this mission, the DSO Office-wide BAA invites proposers to submit innovative basic or applied research concepts that address one or more of the following technical domains: (1) Frontiers in Math, Computation and Design, (2) Limits of Sensing and Sensors, (3) Complex Social Systems, and (4) Anticipating Surprise.
Multiple performers will develop an autonomous undersea robot capable of transiting large distances and physically manipulating objects on the seabed with no communications or human intervention. Key aspects of the Angler program are classified. Only proposals addressing the classified aspects of Angler will be eligible for funding under this BAA. DARPA seeks proposals that present a credible path to a low cost, rapid demonstration of program objectives.
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.
DARPA believes that recent advances in biosensors, actuators, and artificial intelligence could be extended and integrated to dramatically improve tissue regeneration. To achieve this, the new Bioelectronics for Tissue Regeneration (BETR) program asks researchers to develop bioelectronics that closely track the progress of the wound and then stimulate healing processes in real time to optimize tissue repair and regeneration.
