DARPA's Defense Sciences Office (DSO) identifies and pursues high-risk,
high-payoff research initiatives across a broad spectrum of science and
engineering disciplines and transforms them into important, new
game-changing technologies for U.S. national security. Current DSO themes
include frontiers in math, computation and design, limits of sensing and
sensors, complex social systems, and anticipating surprise. DSO relies on
the greater scientific research community to help identify and explore ideas
that could potentially revolutionize the state-of-the-art.
The mission of the Information Innovation Office (I2O) is to ensure enduring advantage for the U.S. and its allies across a broad range of information technologies through the advancement of core technical foundations as well as the design of novel application concepts based on these foundations. I2O’s core technical work ranges from artificial intelligence and data analysis to secure engineering and formal methods.
I2O explores game-changing technologies in the fields of information science and software to anticipate and create rapid shifts in the complex national security landscape. Conflict can occur in traditional domains such as land, sea, air, and space, and in emerging domains such as cyber and other types of irregular warfare. I2O’s research portfolio is focused on anticipating new modes of warfare in these emerging areas and developing the concepts and tools necessary to provide decisive advantage for the U.S. and its allies.
This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks revolutionary research ideas for topics not being addressed by ongoing I2O programs or other published solicitations. Potential proposers are highly encouraged to review the current I2O programs (http://www.darpa.mil/about-us/offices/i2o
) and solicitations (http://www.darpa.mil/work-with-us/opportunities
) to avoid proposing efforts that duplicate existing activities or that are responsive to other published I2O solicitations.
