DARPA is soliciting proposals for innovative research in the areas of causal model development and exploration. The objective of the Causal Exploration program is to develop modeling and exploration tools to aid military planners in understanding and addressing underlying causal factors that drive regional hybrid conflicts. In pursuit of this objective, the program will develop novel techniques for automated extraction of causally relevant knowledge, semi-automated assembly of causal models, intuitive exploration and manipulation of causal models to gain understanding, and assessment of the suitability and maturity of dynamically generated causal models.

ONR has a broad reaching science and technology portfolio supporting autonomous systems. There have been programs related to unmanned air vehicles, underwater vehicles, sea-surface vehicles, and ground vehicles. These efforts have involved fundamental autonomy that is domain agnostic, various sensing approaches, robotics, and kinematics. Research programs have involved both single platform automation and collective behaviors of multiple unmanned platforms. These programs have typically been single domain (air, land or sea) in a relatively homogeneous environment. ONR is now interested in exploring science and technology approaches to support a range of amphibious operations that take advantage of low-cost multi-domain (sea and land) unmanned systems. ONR envision developing autonomous amphibians that will maneuver (individually and collectively) through the surf zone and emerge and navigate ashore. ONR anticipate leveraging the vast body of domain agnostic autonomy research that has been done to date and evolve it to address the stressing multi-domain environment. Moreover, ONR is interested in the unique Science and Technology (S&T) required to autonomously maneuver, sense, and communicate in the challenging sea-land interface in varied shore environments including surf, urban, mud-flats, rocky beach, beach with obstacles, and beach vegetation such as mangroves. Please note - this BAA requires white papers. See attached full announcement for deadlines and further details.
