includes short-range tactical communications, long-range C2 communications
networks, networked defensive systems,
and RF seekers." In response to these
developments, DARPA is seeking "system approaches for active and passive
EW techniques in order to counter these
advanced networked and agile systems
using technologies such as distributed
systems, coherent systems, disposable
systems providing asymmetric capabilities, and close-in remote sensing
coupled with advanced jamming and
spoofing. The EW capabilities that the
U.S. military will encounter are also becoming much more sophisticated. Many
advanced capabilities that were only
available for use by the U.S. military
are now available to be used against
U.S. military systems. The commercial
investments in RF materials, components, and subsystems are immense
and the cost threshold to deploy high
power, agile systems continues to drop.
DARPA is seeking systems concepts and
advanced technologies that provide the
US military fundamental asymmetries
to address these new capabilities. These

can include concepts using physical and
network solutions, distributed systems,
as well as exploitation of precise spectral, time, and position information."
DARPA is focusing on several EMSrelated areas in its communications and
networking topic area. According to the
BAA, DARPA is especially interested in
"approaches for greater spectrum efficiency in complex RF environments;
new spectrum use technologies such as
dynamic use of space/time, as well as
access to new modalities, such as high
frequency Radio Frequency (RF) and
optical polarization; intra- and crossmodality (radar, communications, and
sensing) spectrum access techniques;
spatial reuse through higher frequency
operations; interference avoidance and
tolerance; and large-scale testing of
complex RF environments."
In the PNT area, DARPA is seeking
"new technology and systems solutions
to provide the U.S. military with accurate and precise PNT independent of GPS.
Of particular interest are systems that
provide long duration precision and accuracy in position and timing for global

synchronization, secure communications, and cooperative effects. Technologies of interest include architectures
for ad hoc PNT networks of disparate
nodes; sensors and signal processing to
enable PNT in adverse environments;
and new architectures that enable other
domains, such as communications, EW,
and ISR systems, to inherently support
PNT systems."
DARPA anticipates awarding multiple
research contracts under this BAA. The
BAA number is DARPA-BAA-14-48. The
BAA closing date is September 17, 2015.

DARPA's Strategic Technology Office
has issued a Request for Information
(RFI) (DARPA-SN-14-62) for technologies
that will support precision navigation
without Global Positioning System (GPS)
signals. DARPA and other DOD organizations have been developing technologies
for precision navigation solutions that
do not rely on GPS signals, and the latest
RFI from DARPA is part of this strategy.
