1 The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) was established in 1958 to prevent strategic surprise from negatively impacting U.S. national security and create strategic surprise for U.S. adversaries by maintaining the technological superiority of the U.S. military. To fulfill its mission, the Agency relies on diverse performers to apply multi-disciplinary approaches to both advance knowledge through basic research and create innovative technologies that address current practical problems through applied research. DARPAs scientific investigations span the gamut from laboratory efforts to the creation of full-scale technology demonstrations in the fields of biology, medicine, computer science, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, material sciences, social sciences, neurosciences and more. As the DoDs primary innovation engine, DARPA undertakes projects that are finite in duration but that create lasting revolutionary change. 50% success is the goal – proposals should strive to improve state-of-the-art 10X 2012 Budget - $3.25B, examples of spending programs $294M for C 3, $283M for Information technology, $243M for sensor technology, $206M for advanced electronics, $220M advanced systems, $143M cognitive computing, $140M for network centric systems ( NSF $7.0B, NIH $31B ) Types of funding: 6.1 (Basic Research), 6.2 (Applied Research), 6.3 (Prototype development) DARPA -

2 Offices AEO – Adaptive Execution Office The Adaptive Execution Office (AEO) prepares and coordinates field trials of advanced technology developed by DARPA. At any point in time, DARPA has technologies in all stages of development, from nascent idea to system ready for fielding. DSO – Defense Sciences Office DARPAs Defense Sciences Office (DSO) programs bridge the gap from fundamental science to applications by identifying and pursuing the most promising ideas within the science and engineering research communities and transforming these ideas into new DoD capabilities. – Physical sciences, neuroscience, materials, mathematics, biology

3 Offices I2O – Information Innovation Office I2O aims to ensure U.S. technological superiority in all areas where information can provide a decisive military advantage. This includes the conventional defense mission areas where information has already driven a revolution in military affairs: intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, command, control, communications, computing, networking, decision-making, planning, training, mission rehearsal, and operations support. – Understand, empower, connect MTO – Microsystems Technology Office The Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) supports DARPAs mission of creating and preventing strategic surprise by investing in areas such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), electronics, computing, photonics and biotechnology. - Biological platforms, computing, electronic warfare, manufacturing, novel concepts, photonics, position-navigation-training, thermal managament

4 Offices STO – Strategic Technology Office The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agencys (DARPA) Strategic Technology Office (STO) undertakes research and development of innovative technologies to support the Department of Defense (DoD) mission in current and emerging strategic areas including: Finding Difficult Targets; Communications, Electronic Warfare, and Networks; Shaping the Environment; and Foundational Strategic Technologies. - Communications-networks and electronic warfare, shaping the environment, finding the difficult targets, foundational strategic technologies TTO – Tactical Technology Office TTO transforms the future of warfighting by pursuing high-risk, high payoff tactical technology and development of rapid, mobile and responsive combat capability for advanced weapons, platforms and space systems. – Advanced platforms, Advanced space systems, Advanced weapon systems
