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 beta.SAM.gov 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.

Time-Aware Machine Intelligence (TAMI)
DSO
The Time-Aware Machine Intelligence (TAMI) AIE Opportunity will develop new time-aware neural network architectures that introduce a meta-learning capability into machine learning. This meta-learning will enable a neural network to capture the time-dependencies of its encoded knowledge.

Adaptive Warfighting Architectures
ACO
The Adaptive Capabilities Office (ACO), working in close partnership with the military services, develops adaptive warfighting architectures that combine emerging technologies with new warfighting constructs to address the challenges faced by military forces in contested environments.
