DARPA Seeks Proposals for Counter-Hypersonics Tech Development Program - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has started to solicit proposals to research and develop technology platforms that will work to counter hypersonic vehicles.

DARPA said in a broad agency announcement posted Nov. 6 on FedBizOpps the Glide Breaker program wants prospective offerors to build and demonstrate platforms designed to intercept moving hypersonic threats in the upper atmosphere.

The agency noted that the program's key aspects are classified and that it would subject the selected vendor to system requirements, preliminary design, critical design and test readiness reviews.

Proposals are due Dec. 21, according to the notice.

DARPA said it might issue a separate BAA by mid-fiscal 2019 for additional tech development efforts under the Glide Breaker program.
