Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyWork With UsOpportunities

Opportunities

Established in 1958 as part of the U.S. Department of Defense, DARPA pursues opportunities for transformational change rather than incremental advances. It does so collaboratively as part of a robust innovation ecosystem that includes academic, corporate, and governmental partners. To fulfill its mission, the Agency relies on diverse performers from throughout this ecosystem to apply multi-disciplinary approaches to both advance knowledge through basic research and create innovative technologies that address current and predicted practical problems through applied research. The list of selected opportunities displayed below is provided for convenience. For a complete listing of DARPA opportunities please visit the FedBizOpps website. More

In addition to program-specific opportunities, each DARPA technical office maintains an “office-wide” Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) that covers a range of technical areas of interest to each particular office. The office-wide BAAs are refreshed on an annual basis and offer a mechanism for researchers to reach DARPA with ideas that they feel could be valuable to national security.

Information Innovation Office (I2O) Office-wide
I2O
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.

Symbiotic Design for Cyber Physical Systems
I2O
DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of AI-based approaches for design of military-relevant cyber-physical systems (CPS). Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems
Response date: 11/20/2019
Assured Micropatching (AMP)
I2O
DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of creating targeted security binary patches (micropatches) to repair legacy binaries of mission-critical systems, with strong guarantees that the patch will not impact the functions of the system. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems. Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice.

Semantic Forensics (SemaFor)
I2O
The Semantic Forensics (SemaFor) program will develop technologies to automatically detect, attribute, and characterize falsified multi-modal media assets (text, audio, image, video) to defend against large-scale, automated disinformation attacks.
Response date: 9/30/2020
Cyberspace Operations and Information Operations Research and Development (COIO R&D)
I2O
The DARPA Information Innovation Office (I2O) requests information on potential performers for classified COIO R&D. Specifically, this RFI seeks information on potential performers who have the capability to rapidly develop state-of-the-art COIO technologies responsive to current and emerging cyber threats.
