DARPA invites industry to Discover DSO Day

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring the Discover DSO Day (D3) event to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the DSO Office-wide Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). The event will be held on June 23, 2021 via webcast. Advance registration is required for all individuals intending to view the webcast alone or as part of a group. Registration closes on June 9, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern or when capacity is reached, whichever comes first.

The goals of the event are to (1) familiarize participants with DSO’s mission; (2) promote understanding of the anticipated Office-wide BAA; and (3) facilitate discussions with potential performers. DARPA anticipates releasing the DSO Office-wide BAA in June 2021.


The mission of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is to identify and create the next generation of scientific discovery by pursuing high-risk, high-payoff research initiatives across a broad spectrum of science and engineering disciplines and transforming these initiatives into disruptive technologies for U.S. national security. In support of this mission, the anticipated DSO Office-wide BAA will invite proposers to submit innovative basic or applied research concepts in one or more of the following technical thrust areas:

  • Frontiers in Math, Computation & Design
  • Limits of Sensing & Sensors
  • Complex Social Systems
  • Anticipating Surprise
