DARPA – Innovative Systems

United States Department of Defense (DOD)
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
The Tactical Technology Office (TTO) of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting executive summaries, white papers and proposals for advanced research, development and demonstration ofinnovative systems for military missions. Innovative systems are platforms, weapons, integrated systems or critical systems components that often incorporate emerging advanced technologies, and enable revolutionary improvements to the capability, efficiency and effectiveness of the military.
TTO seeks responses relating to the following Focus Areas:
1. Ground Systems
a. Soldier/Squad Technologies
b. Combat Vehicles
c. Tactical Operations in Complex (Urban, Forest/Jungle, and Arctic) Environments
2. Maritime Systems (Surface and Undersea)
a. Expanded Platform Performance
b. Cross Domain Applications
c. Defense of Maritime Forces
d. Enhanced Autonomy

3. Air Systems
a. Novel Air Vehicles
b. Hypersonic Platforms

4. Space Systems
a. Spacecraft Technologies
b. Space Situational Awareness
c. Systems for Access
d. Future Space Operations
e. Propellants and Propulsion

This solicitation focuses on the very high payoff, high risk development, integration, demonstration and evaluation of innovative systems or criticalsystems components enabled by, and incorporating, new or emerging technologies. Proposed efforts must also show significant promise to provide the U.S. military with revolutionary new mission capabilities, enable significant increases in mission effectiveness, or dramatically reduce system costs.
