Defense Sciences Office Solicitations
- DARPA-PA-11-52: Cyber Fast Track, Response Date 8/03/2012
This Program Announcement (PA) seeks to revolutionize cyber technologies by promoting nontraditional technical opportunities. The Cyber Fast Track (CFT) program will engage numerous cyber related efforts across the spectrum of computer and network operations (CNO) to demonstrate that cyber efforts can be accomplished rapidly and cost effectively. This effort intends to extend the existing performer base to include non‐standard, cutting edge organizations and individuals throughout the cyber community, thereby strengthening the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Cyber Security capabilities. One goal of this program is to demonstrate the ability for cyber projects to be performed at an asymmetric advantage in time, cost, and contribution of the efforts in comparison to more traditional applied research areas. This will apply to both performance of individual efforts and to the contracting required to engage performers in said efforts.
Microsystems Technology Office Solicitations
- DARPA-BAA-10-35: Microsystems Technology Office-wide, Response Date 9/1/2012
The Microsystems Technology Office’s (MTO) mission is to exploit breakthroughs in materials, devices, circuits, and mathematics to develop beyond leading edge Microsystems components with revolutionary performance and functionality to enable new platform capability for the Department of Defense. To execute this mission, MTO supports revolutionary research in electronics, photonics, MEMS, algorithms, and combined Microsystems technology to deliver new capabilities to sense, communicate, energize, actuate, and process data and information for the war fighter.
- DARPA-BAA-12-50: Intrachip/Interchip Enhanced Cooling Fundamentals (ICECool Fundamentals), Response Date 8/30/2012
The ICECool Fundamentals thrust is the first step toward achieving the goals of the ICECool program and will develop the fundamental building blocks of intra- and interchip evaporative microfluidic cooling. ICECool Fundamentals will develop and demonstrate the microfabrication techniques needed to implement evaporative microfluidics in multiply-microchanneled semiconductor wafers and study, model, and correlate the thermofluidic characteristics of evaporative flows in such microchannel flow loops within individual chips and/or in the microgaps between chips in 3D stacks.
Strategic Technology Office Solicitations
- DARPA-BAA-12-09: Strategic Technology Office (STO) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), Response Date 1/12/2013
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Strategic Technology Office (STO) is soliciting innovative proposals under this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the performance of research, development, design, and testing that directly supports Strategic Technology Office (STO). This includes Finding Difficult Targets; Communications, Networks and Electronic Warfare; Shaping the Environment; and Foundational Technologies that support multiple STO focus areas.
- DARPA-BAA-12-28: Assured Arctic Awareness, Response Date 9/12/2012
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative research proposals for technology supportive of Arctic situation awareness. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems.
Assured Arctic Awareness (Triple A)Defence RD (DRDC)NSF’s Arctic Research Support & Logistics Program
