Elusive Surface Target Engagement Technology: DESCRIPTIONElusive Surface Target Engagement Technology, SOL BAA 07-15, Abstracts and Proposals Due: Anytime between 27 March 2007 and 27 March 2009; Technical POC: Dr. Mark E. Davis, Deputy Director, DARPA/IXO; Phone (571) 218-4688.BACKGROUND: The Information Exploitation Office (IXO) of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) solicits proposals for advanced research, development, and evaluation of information technologies and systems provide revolutionary improvements to our nations military capabilities to prosecute elusive surface targets. The goal of this procurement is to obtain novel ideas for sensing, signal processing, target characterization, data fusion, target tracking, predictive awareness, battle management, collaborative planning, and visualization that can contribute to future conflict mitigation, warfighting and peacekeeping effectiveness. Ideas can address 1) ways to employ emerging scientific or technical ideas to achieve significant increases in component performance; 2) novel combinations of existing technologies into systems that create new warfighting capabilities; or 3) combinations of both.PROGRAM OBJECTIVES/DESCRIPTION: As a systems-oriented office, IXO is interested in both system concepts and enabling technologies that radically improve our armed forces capabilities to find, identify, track and engage surface targets, anywhere on the globe, in all environments, and at all times. IXOs interests focus on the most difficult and extreme military missions, including: 1) military operations in difficult environments, including forested, mountainous, and swampy terrain; 2) urban operations against regular military forces; 3) counter-insurgency operations against irregular forces and their infrastructure; and 4) providing security against maritime threats in open ocean and littoral regions.DARPA/IXO is interested in proposals that combine emerging technologies with high-payoff system applications. Proposals that address any combination of technology and application that fall within IXOs broad mission objectives may be submitted under this solicitation.TECHNOLOGIES OF INTEREST: Technologies that interest IXO include: 1) Advanced Sensors, 2) Sensor Processing, 3) Environmental Context Generation, 4) Target Discrimination, 5) Tracking, 6) Information Fusion, 7) Visualization / Immersive Operations, 8) Pattern Analysis, 9) Network Analysis, 10) Game Theory, 11) Social Modeling, 12) Planning and Control, 13) Collective Autonomy, 14) Dismount Automation, 15) Integrated Platforms, 16) Observables Management, 17) Very Large Databases, and 18) Human-computer Interaction.SYSTEM APPLICATIONS OF INTEREST: High payoff system applications that interest IXO include: 1) Rapidly Defeating Elusive Surface Targets, 2) Understanding of the 21st Century Battlespace, 3) Managing the Scale and Complexity of the Network-centric Battlespace, 4) Combat ID of Individuals, 5) Getting Actionable Combat Information to the Busy Warfighter, 6) Obtaining Reliable Forensics in Cluttered Environments, and 7) Extending the Effective Line of Sight. Further details on specific technology and application interest, program phases, selection criteria, and submission instructions may be found in the Proposer Information Package (PIP) which can be accessed at http://dtsn.darpa.mil/ixo/solicitations.asp#0715.TECHNICAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE INQUIRIES: DARPA intends to use electronic mail for correspondence regarding BAA 07-15. Technical, contractual, or administrative questions must be sent to BAA07-15@darpa.mil. Answers to all questions generally relevant to the technical, contractual, and administrative aspects of the solicitation will be posted at http://dtsn.darpa.mil/ixo/solicitations.asp#0715 under Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for public access. In order to minimize unnecessary effort in proposal preparation and review, proposers are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts in advance of full proposals. DARPA will employ an electronic upload process for abstract/proposal submissions for BAA 07-15. Performers may find guidance for abstract/proposal submission in the PIP at: http://dtsn.darpa.mil/ixo/solicitations.asp#0715. This BAA will remain open from 27 March 2007 through 27 March 2009. Throughout this period, DARPA will receive and review abstracts and/or proposals on a continuous basis and proposers are encouraged to submit innovative abstracts and/or proposals at any time during this period. Please reference the PIP at http://dtsn.darpa.mil/ixo/solicitations.asp#0715 for complete submission instructions.OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The Government reserves the right to select for award all, some, or none of the proposals received in response to this announcement and to award without discussions. All responsible sources may submit a proposal that shall be considered by DARPA. Small Disadvantaged Businesses and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs) are encouraged to submit proposals and team with others in submitting proposals. However, no portion of this BAA will be set aside for HBCUs and MIs participation, due to the impracticality of reserving discrete or severable areas of technology for exclusive competition among these entities. Government contractors are required to register at the Governments Central Contractor Registration site in order to negotiate contracts with most government agencies.
