DARPA is seeking innovative solutions that will expand the knowledge base and design capabilities for the Gremlins program. The goal of the Gremlins program is to demonstrate safe and reliable aerial launch and recovery of multiple unmanned aircraft, with traceability to an objective system capable of employing and recovering diverse distributed payloads in volley quantities. Gremlins will also explore the operating cost advantages of limited-life, reusable systems. The objective of Phase I is to conduct system architecture and design trade studies to develop a conceptual Gremlins objective system design, analyze and trade aerial launch and aerial recovery techniques, develop operational concepts, and inform demonstration system design and planning for future phases. Phase II will continue design development and risk reduction activities culminating in PDR and Phase III will proceed to a compelling flight demonstration.

Solid State, High Power Laser Weapon System Demonstrator (LWSD) Design, Development and Demonstration for Surface Navy, USN

Department of the Navy, Office of Naval Research | Published December 11, 2014  -  Deadline January 27, 2015
cpvs

The Office of Naval Research seeks to continue the advancement of SSL weapon system designs, architectures, and component technologies. The government believes that improvements in lethality may be achieved through maturation and optimization of a variety of system characteristics, including laser power (government estimates indicate that systems with laser power of 100-150 kW may be supportable using ship power and cooling), beam quality, beam director architecture, and other physical and optical aspects of the laser, beam director, and system design. Furthermore, the government believes that duty cycle, operability, and maintainability improvements may be accomplished through system architecture, system design attributes, and maturation and optimization of component technologies, potentially including modification of commercially available components. Under this BAA, the government plans a design, build, test, and demonstration effort to mature the system, sub-systems, and component technologies necessary to produce a Laser Weapon System Demonstrator (LWSD) consisting of a performer-supplied Tactical Laser Core Module (TLCM), integrated by the performer with required government-furnished elements and subsystems. The LWSD will be installed by the Government aboard a Navy test ship with representative support system constraints (e.g. ship's power and cooling, sensors, etc.) and demonstrated at sea. During the at sea demonstration, the LWSD will be operated from the ship to execute live-fire engagements in day and night conditions under operationally derived test scenarios consistent with ship self-defense missions including countering threats from adversary Fast Attack Craft/Fast In-Shore Attack Craft (FAC/FIAC), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), and sensor systems used for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR). The goal of this project is to successfully engage and defeat both single and multiple threat representative targets with performance characteristics significantly improved over current and previous systems.* The program also has the objective of achieving a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 6 for the system in order to support the Navy's potential consideration of a Program of Record (PoR) milestone decision. The Government seeks balanced approaches in proposals that reflect: 1) the most advantageous use of existing subsystems and components where appropriate, 2) technical maturation of components or designs, of current and previous systems, that provide significantly enhanced lethality, higher duty cycle, reduced maintenance, improved durability, or lower system cost, and 3) a cost effective approach to achieving maturation of technologies, integration of the design, and an at-sea demonstration. The Government will use a three-phased acquisition structure, with an overall 30-month timeline from contract award to project completion with the at-sea testing. This BAA calls for fully integrated system level proposals for the LWSD. Proposals that only address partial solutions or component level technologies will not be considered for award. See full announcement for full description.
