The Manufacturable Gradient Index Optics (M-GRIN) program seeks to advance Gradient Index (GRIN) design and fabrication technology. This program will develop new lens design methods and tools coupled to fabrication processes and manufacturing tolerances that will provide a pathway to a scalable manufacturing system, which can flexibly produce lenses in units of one to thousands. DARPA seeks to design, fabricate and demonstrate manufacturing feasibility of GRIN-based optical assemblies. The program will address all of the following technology areas: 1) materials development, 2) optical element design, 3) test and evaluation methods (metrology), and 4) manufacturing.

Although available program funds are typically fully allocated at the start of a program, opportunities sometimes arise 12 – 18 months after program kickoff, when phase 1 performance is being assessed. If you have ideas you think may be of interest to a program, this may be a good time to talk to the PM.

This Request for Information from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Tactical Technology Office seeks ideas, methodologies, and approaches solely for information and planning purposes. Responses to this RFI may be used to support potential new DARPA programs seeking novel materials and/or optics approaches to demonstrate large, planar optical systems.
