CHIPS Articles: 2018 Disruptive Capabilities for Future Warfare Virtual Proposers Day

2018 Disruptive Capabilities for Future Warfare Virtual Proposers Day
Registration closes June 1
By CHIPS Magazine - May 30, 2018
DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office is hosting a Virtual Proposers Day June 6 and 7 to provide information through pre-recorded videos about TTO’s goals and areas for investment in advance of a mid-June release of the 2018 Disruptive Capabilities for Future Warfare Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), according to a release.

The event will provide an opportunity for companies and individuals to meet with TTO program managers to discuss concepts for advanced research, development and the demonstration of systems for military missions. Registration closes June 1 at noon EDT.

The “TTO seeks orthogonal approaches – coming at a problem from a novel angle that neither we nor our adversaries have considered – to drive enterprise disruption within, beyond, and across the seams of traditional warfighting domains on the ground, at sea, in the air, and in space.”

“We want ideas that upset the enterprise, unexpected approaches that could fundamentally change the way we develop, design, build, deploy, and operate military systems,” said Fred Kennedy, director, DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office. “Don’t be afraid to challenge the most basic assumptions about how we fight, and what we give our warfighters to fight with. Proposers Day is the perfect opportunity to float a novel concept that takes us in completely different directions, and just might lead to a strong proposal.”

The goal is “to identify and demonstrate alternative warfighting concepts, architectures, and capabilities that disrupt our adversaries’ decision calculus, and which create surprise and impose significant costs to counter.”

Information and details on the forthcoming BAA are available at: https://events.sa-meetings.com/ehome/index.php?eventid=325719&.
