DARPA to Seek Studies for Simplified Urban Operations

1 min read

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plans to solicit studies that simplify military engagements in urban environments and address the limits of current intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance methods.

DARPA said Thursday in a SAM notice it seeks the Non-Escalatory Engagement to reduce Dimensionality or NEED capability for the reduction of complexities in urban environment missions.

The agency seeks research concepts that apply social behavioral science to help autonomous vehicles determine who or what poses threats in urban environments. These studies would create a library of engagements to guide these vehicles.

The government would award an other transaction agreement worth $1 million for each two-phase project under the program. Interested parties may submit responses to the presolicitation through Nov. 13.
