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
The Information Innovation Office (I2O) develops game-changing information science and technology to ensure information advantage for the U.S. and its allies. To accomplish this, I2O sponsors basic and applied research in three thrust areas: Cyber, Analytics, and Symbiosis. I2O seeks unconventional approaches that are outside the mainstream, challenge accepted assumptions, and have the potential to radically change established practice.

Cyber-Hunting at Scale (CHASE)
I2O
DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of data-driven cyber-hunting tools for real-time cyber threat detection, characterization, and protection within enterprise scale networks.

Harnessing Autonomy for Countering Cyberadversary Systems (HACCS)
I2O
DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of automated techniques and software tools for neutralizing cyberadversary infrastructure. The goal of the Harnessing Autonomy for Countering Cyberadversary Systems program is to develop technologies for accurately identifying malicious cyberadversary infiltrated networks, generating software exploits for large numbers of known (n-day) vulnerabilities, and creating safe, reliable, and non-disruptive autonomous software agents that can be inserted in the compromised networks via the n-day exploits to safely and reliably neutralize cyberadversary software agents.
