Disruptioneering Program Announcement

Due Date: June 20, 2023

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. As part of this mission, DSO makes high-risk, high-reward investments in science and technology that have the potential to disrupt current understanding and/or approaches. The pace of discovery in both science and technology is accelerating worldwide, resulting in new fields of study and the identification of scientific areas ripe for disruption. In order to capitalize on these new opportunities, DSO looks to include rapid, targeted and limited scope investments as part of an overall balanced portfolio. DSO solicits these accelerated investments through our Disruptioneering program. Disruptioneering enables DARPA to initiate a new investment in less than 120 calendar days from idea inception.
