IARPA to host virtual SCISRS Proposers’ Day

On August 5, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) announced plans to host a virtual Proposers’ Day for the Securing Compartmented Information with Smart Radio Systems (SCISRS) Research Program.

IARPA will hold a virtual Proposers’ Day meeting on August 20, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm EDT to introduce the SCISRS program to potential proposers, provide information on its objectives, and collect feedback on the SCISRS draft Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) technical section to be posted on https://beta.sam.gov/ prior to the Proposers’ Day, in anticipation of publication of a program BAA. The goal of the SCISRS program is to develop smart radio techniques to automatically detect and characterize RF anomalies in complex RF environments. The specific types of anomalies include low probability of intercept (LPI) signals, altered or mimicked signals, and abnormal unintended emissions.

IARPA holds Proposers’ Days to provide information to assist potential performers to evaluate whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. The SCISRS Proposers’ Day is open only to registered potential proposers, and not to the media or the general public.

The meeting will be held entirely on the WebEx video conference platform, and a recorded video of the meeting will be made available to the public on the IARPA website at https://www.iarpa.gov/index.php/research-programs/scisrs .

This announcement serves as a notice of intent to fund scientific research and is issued solely for information and planning purposes. The Proposers’ Day meeting does not constitute a formal solicitation for proposals. Meeting attendance is voluntary and is not required to propose to this, or any other solicitations (if any) associated with the SCISRS program. IARPA will not provide reimbursement for any costs incurred to participate in this Proposers’ Day.


Pre-registration is required and closes on August 17, 2020 at 5:00 pm EDT. To register, visit https://www.client-meeting.net/scisrs-conference. Following registration acceptance, applicants will receive an agenda and instructions on how to participate in this virtual WebEx meeting.

As an option to facilitate teaming, potential proposers may submit a Capabilities Statement (5 pages maximum, 12 point font with 1 inch borders) and a completed Teaming Information Form (posted with this notice) to IARPA for possible posting on our website at https://www.iarpa.gov/index.php/research-programs/scisrs. Deadline for these submissions is August 28, 2020 at 5:00 pm EDT.
