Strategic Technologies (STO) OFFICE-WIDE
DARPA is seeking innovative ideas and disruptive technologies that provide the U.S. military significant capability improvement to dominate across all scales of conflict intensity. These span highly contested force-on-force conflicts to ambiguous, complex 'Gray Zone' conflicts. Technologies should support conflicts that may take place in a range of environments from austere, remote locations to dense megacities.

Ocean of Things - Broad Agency Announcement
The complexity of the ocean environment and operations therein has previously encouraged the use of exquisite systems to understand maritime dynamics and activity. The Ocean of Things program is an opportunity to provide affordable ocean sensing at large scales and high resolution. Improved maritime analysis provides detailed understanding of the ocean environment, informs regulatory commitments to protect natural resources, and enables the military to operate more effectively on the high seas.
