National security challenges today are increasingly complex and multi-dimensional, demanding technological solutions that reflect the combined expertise of a broad diversity of professionals. But even when such experts are available and engaged, progress towards an integrated solution can be slowed by the lack of a versatile, domain-agnostic, collaborative platform, where innovation can happen not just despite but because of the disparate mix of participants’ perspectives and experiences.

The Defense Sciences Office is holding a Proposers Day webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of a Broad Agency Announcement for the Polyplexus Pilot 2 program. Polyplexus is an online platform being developed under DARPA’s Gamifying the Search for Strategic Surprise program. The aim is to fundamentally reshape the research and development process by significantly reducing the time between concept emergence and worthy proposal submission by dramatically increasing efficiency. Efficiency gains will arise from collaborative activities focused on rigorous evidence collection and hypothesis generation, both of which are facilitated by online conversation. Ultimately, the purpose of Polyplexus will be to build on a continuous expert conversation about the present and future states of science and to generate superior R&D proposals that will be matched to research sponsors.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring a Proposers Day webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of a Research Announcement (RA) for the Polyplexus Pilot program (Note: participation in the pilot program is open to scientists and researchers at educational institutions only).
Scientific imagination is critical to our economy as well as our national security and defense. Research and development, as an expression of scientific imagination, is now a global and intensely competitive enterprise. This competition is heightened by digital and network disruptors that increase the speed and extend the borders of idea exchange affecting the nature and spread of threats and opportunities. Organizations fundamentally based on shaping the future need to leverage every possible advantage to succeed in this environment.
