The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and a group of chipmakers want to partner with organizations to research and develop nanotechnology that imitates human sensing functions, NextGov reports. 

DARPA’s Focus Research Program issued a solicitation on FedBizOpps Monday, seeking ideas from U.S. universities for computing systems and architectures that could intelligently adapt to interact with physical or electromagnetic environments. 

Candidates should demonstrate their semiconductor research and its applicability to the defense industry that would not likely hit the market for a decade, according to the notice.

The agency wants organizations to submit white papers for the research project, which DARPA said will be high risk, to boost information processing power and storage capacity of integrated circuits by June 15.

DARPA expects to select organizations in October and will hold a conference for potential bidders in mid-May to provide additional information.

Additionally, the agency plans to seek proposers for several satellite communications programs, including one that aims to improve soldiers’ ability to communicate in densely forested areas.
