On April 28, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) announced that it is extending the submission deadline for its agency-wide research broad agency announcement (BAA) to May 16 (IARPA-BAA-16-07).
This BAA seeks research ideas for topics that are not addressed by emerging or ongoing IARPA programs or other published IARPA solicitations. It is primarily, but not solely, intended for early stage research (i.e., seedlings), that may lead to larger, focused programs through a separate BAA in the future, so periods of performance generally will not exceed 12 months.
Offerors should demonstrate that their proposed effort has the potential to make revolutionary, rather than incremental, improvements to intelligence capabilities. Research that primarily results in evolutionary improvement to the existing state of practice is specifically excluded.
