DARPA 2015 Proposers Day

Registration opens on March 16th for
only 150 registrants

DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO) seeks to preserve and extend decisive advantages for the U.S. military through innovative systems or systems components that incorporate new or emerging technologies. To help accomplish these goals, TTO has scheduled a Proposers Day at DARPA’s offices in Arlington, Va., to be held on Wednesday, April 29, 2015, and Thursday, April 30, 2015, at which potential performers can learn more about TTO’s technical objectives. Those objectives will be outlined in detail in advance of the Proposers Day in a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) calling for executive summaries, white papers and proposals for advanced research, development and demonstration of innovative systems for military missions.

TTO seeks contributors who can apply the Office’s cross-cutting themes (agile systems development, collaborative autonomy and reducing costs) to the following focus areas:

  • Ground Systems: soldier/squad technologies, combat vehicles and tactical operations in complex (urban, forest/jungle and arctic) environments
  • Maritime Systems (surface and undersea): expanded platform performance, cross domain applications, defense of maritime forces and enhanced autonomy
  • Air Systems: novel air vehicles and hypersonic platforms
  • Space Systems: spacecraft technologies, space situational awareness, systems for access, future space operations and propellants and propulsion

Advance registration for the Proposers Day is required and available at https://www.signup4.net/Public/ap.aspx?EID=DARP429E. Registration opens on Monday, March 16, 2015, at 8:00 AM PDT and closes Thursday, March 19, 2015, at 5:00 PM PDT or when capacity is reached, whichever comes first. Due to space limitations of the conference facility, attendance will be limited to the first 150 registrants, and no more than five representatives from UC Irvine will be permitted to attend. Note:  DARPA will make the final decision on attendees based on the concept registrants submit during registration.

If a UCI team is selected during initial registration, the Office of Research will facilitate travel to this meeting.  If selected, those persons should contact OR@research.uci.edu for further information.
