The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day to provide information on the structure and objectives of the Angler program. Angler seeks to migrate advancements from terrestrial and space-based robotics, terrestrial autonomous manipulation, and underwater sensing technologies into the realm of undersea manipulation, with specific focus on long-distance, seabed-based missions. Specifically, the program aims to discover innovative autonomous robotic solutions capable of navigating unstructured ocean depths, surveying expansive underwater regions, and physically manipulating manmade objects of interest.

DARPA has long been a leader in the field of artificial intelligence, establishing the foundations of the field and leading creation of expert systems, and then supporting the expansion of machine learning. The agency’s most recent investments — undertaken as part of DARPA’s $2 billion AI Next campaign — are supporting a shift in AI systems from tools alone to trusted, collaborative partners in problem solving. To increase awareness of DARPA’s expansive AI R&D efforts, the agency is hosting an Artificial Intelligence Colloquium (AIC) in March 2019. The event will bring together the Department of Defense research community and stakeholders to learn more about DARPA’s current and emerging AI programs, and discover how the technologies in development could apply to diverse missions.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Artificial Social Intelligence for Successful Teams (ASIST) program. ASIST will explore human-machine teaming and machine social intelligence in a teaming context. DARPA envisions computer-based agents that observe their surroundings; build and maintain rich representations of the environment, team, and individuals; infer teammates’ goals (non-verbal behavior); predict teammates’ actions; and assist teams by planning interventions and executing them at appropriate times. During demonstrations in a virtual testbed, ASIST agents will operate in increasingly complex environments and will have to adapt to challenges such as a change in strategy.

DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new Consortium for Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS). Through CONFERS, DARPA aims to establish an industry/government forum composed of experts from throughout the space community. Participants would leverage best practices from government and industry to research, develop, and publish non-binding, consensus-derived technical and safety standards for on-orbit servicing operations. In doing so, the program would provide a clear technical basis for definitions and expectations of responsible behavior in outer space.

Since its founding, DARPA has pushed the limits of what is possible to develop breakthrough technologies for national security. 2018 marks DARPA’s sixtieth anniversary, and in September, to cap this milestone year, the Agency is hosting a multifaceted symposium dubbed “D60: Breakthrough Technology | Past, Present, Future.” The institutional goals of the event are to strengthen and expand DARPA’s innovation ecosystem (which includes academia, industry, and government partners), inform stakeholders about DARPA’s vision and priorities, and learn from the Agency’s ongoing record of achievements and experience in the challenges of rendering not-yet technology into here-now technology.
