Casimir Effect Enhancement (CEE): The purpose of this amendment is the change the due date of the full proposals to 13 Jan 2008. See the revised full BAA document attached. Original posting: DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of Casimir Effect Enhancement (CEE). The goal of this program is to develop new methods to control and manipulate attractive and repulsive forces at surfaces based on engineering of the Casimir Force. One could leverage this ability to control phenomena such as adhesion in nanodevices, drag on vehicles and many other interactions of interest to the DoD. A specific goal of this single-phase DARPA program is to demonstrate the ability to manipulate and engineer the Casimir force including the ability to neutralize the Casimir force.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 is preferred. (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-08-59 (EMAIL: Proposals and proposal abstracts may not be submitted by fax or e-mail; any so sent will be disregarded.
