When:  Apr 18, 2024 from 09:00 to 15:45 (ET)
Associated with  DARPAConnect

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Structures Uniquely Resolved to Guarantee Endurance (SURGE) program. The Proposers Day will be held on April 18, 2024, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. (Eastern Time) in Arlington, VA. The event will be webcast for those who would like to participate remotely. Advance registration is required for attending the Proposers Day in person and viewing the webcast. Note that all times listed in this announcement and on the registration website are Eastern Time.

The goals of the SURGE Proposers Day are to: (1) introduce the research community 
(industry, academia, and Government) to the SURGE program vision and goals; (2) explain how to work with DARPA and the milestones of this particular effort; and (3) encourage and promote teaming arrangements among potential organizations that have the relevant expertise, facilities, and capabilities for executing a research and development program responsive to the SURGE BAA. 

DARPA anticipates releasing the SURGE BAA in April 2024. If released, the BAA will be 
available on and Following Proposers Day, DARPA may post the presented materials and the list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to the 
DARPA/DSO Opportunities website. 

To maximize the pool of innovative proposal concepts, DARPA strongly encourages 
participation by non‐traditional proposers (including small businesses, academic and research institutions, and first‐time government contractors) in events such as this and any subsequent solicitation.
