The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to researchers on the objectives of the new Assured Micropatching (AMP) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of AMP is to create the capability for rapid patching of legacy binaries in mission-critical systems, including cases in which the original source code version and/or build process is not available. AMP will create new capabilities to analyze, modify, and fix legacy software in binary form, to produce assured targeted micropatches for known security flaws in existing binaries. Ultimately, AMP intends to demonstrate the use of targeted micropatches for repairing legacy mission-critical binaries with strong guarantees that the patch will not impact the baseline functions of the system. DARPA expects that these prototypes will provide a starting point for technology transition to mission-critical software for cyber-physical system domains.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Automated Rapid Certification Of Software (ARCOS) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of ARCOS is to automate the evaluation of software assurance evidence so that certifiers can rapidly determine if system risk is acceptable. “Certification” is the process of determining that a system’s risk is acceptable.

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 an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Competency-Aware Machine Learning (CAML) program. The Proposers Day will be held via prerecorded webcast on February 20, 2019 at 11:00 AM EST and will repost at 3:00 PM EST. Advance registration is required for viewing the webcast.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Guaranteed Architecture for Physical Security (GAPS) program. GAPS will develop hardware and software architectures that can provide physically provable guarantees around high-risk transactions, or where data moves between systems of different security levels. DARPA wants to ensure that these transactions are isolated and that the systems they move across are enabled with the necessary data security assertions. The intended outputs of this program are hardware and software co-design tools that allow data separation requirements to be defined during design, and protections that can be physically enforced at system runtime.

The Strategic Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Air Combat Evolution (ACE) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of ACE is to automate air-to-air combat, enabling reaction times at machine speeds and freeing pilots to concentrate on the larger air battle. Turning aerial dogfighting over to AI is less about dogfighting, which should be rare in the future, and more about giving pilots the confidence that AI and automation can handle a high-end fight.
