Active Cooling Modules (ACM): DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of active cooling modules. DoD systems are driving conflicting needs for high performance as well as reduced size and weight. DARPA makes many investments in new technologies that can improve performance or reduce size and weight. Unfortunately, in many cases, the power consumption of these systems increases with each improvement. As a result, the performance of heat rejection technology remains a key limitation in many applications. The primary goal of this program is the development and demonstration of ideas based on novel materials and structures that can provide tens of degrees of cooling for 100W devices in cm-scale cooling modules with coefficient of performance (COP) of 3 or better. All administrative correspondence and questions on this solicitation, including requests for information on how to submit a proposal abstract or full proposal to this BAA, should be directed to one of the administrative addresses below; e-mail or fax is preferred. E-mail:; PHONE: (703) 351-8427 for administrative/TFIMS questions; PHONE: (703) 351-8573 for technical questions. DARPA intends to use electronic mail for correspondence regarding DARPA-BAA-09-44.
