The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's information innovation office has begun to seek research concepts in the areas of cyber, analytics and symbiosis that aim to provide the U.S. and its allies information advantage.
A broad agency announcement posted Friday on FedBizOpps says I2O is interested in unconventional research approaches that seek to make technology advancements in science, devices or systems.
The office said it may consider proposals that advance the development of capabilities based on novel software platforms and will accept abstracts through July 12, 2018.
Full proposals from organizations will be sought once I2O conducts a preliminary review of the abstracts' technical merit and the office's interest in the proposed technology concept.
The office will accept proposals until Aug. 31, 2018, and will make awards in the form of contracts, cooperative agreements, grants or “other transaction“ agreements.
