Connecting with TTO

When:  Jun 12, 2024 from 11:00 to 13:00 (ET)
Associated with  DARPAConnect

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Tactical Technology Office (TTO) is sponsoring a “Connecting with TTO” webinar to provide an overview of TTO, highlight ways for non-traditional performers such as small businesses and educational institutions new to national security, to work with DARPA, and provide information on the objectives of the upcoming TTO Office Wide Broad Agency Announcement (OW BAA), HR001124S0023, anticipated to be published on in June 2024. 

  • “Connecting with TTO” will be held virtually via on June 12, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET. Check-in begins at 10:00 a.m. Advance registration is required to participate.
  • The webinar link and directions on webinar access and logistics will be provided to attendees by June 10, 2024 at 12:00 p.m. 

TTO seeks to enhance the nation’s ability to rapidly build, adapt and sustain force structures with the following focus areas:

  • Platform Innovation – Design, engineer, and demonstrate new and innovative platforms at credible scale, proving new enabling technologies that lead to disruptive systems concepts. This includes nontraditional systems engineering processes to deliver increased pace of innovation.
  • Missionized Autonomy – Apply autonomy as a force multiplier to enable the scaling of massed effects for defense applications, focusing on trustworthiness, security, heterogenous platform cooperation, and one-to-many human-systems interfaces. 
  • Managing Complexity – Reduce risk and cost through new methods of design space exploration and high-capacity computing that provide more efficient and complete insight on system architectures, deliver visibility into higher-order interactions, and enable focused and efficient testing. This includes nontraditional systems engineering processes that promise to deliver faster design, engineering, and manufacturing of complex defense systems.
  • Freedom’s Forge 2.0 – Builds on the legacy of public and private cooperation for national security to make manufacturing, maintainability, and testing processes portable, affordable, and responsive. Key elements are rapid evolution from concept to manufacture and designing to support surge production. Cost awareness and control of the manufactured articles is included.
