On Wednesday, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will host a Proposers Day for leaders within the defense industry base to discuss further developing their five-year, $1.5B investment in an Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) to further technological advancements for Department of Defense (DoD) needs. DARPA program managers will share defense application ideas for artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, cognitive electronic warfare, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. Leaders attending will be able to provide input on best practices to support transitioning electronics innovations into national defense hardware. “DARPA seeks to procure the expertise and transition support of industry and the defense community to help accelerate the delivery of ERI-derived innovations for national security needs,” said William Chappell, director of DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office. DARPA hopes to develop a broad agency announcement focused on developing, demonstrating, and applying ERI technologies to deliver significant impact on DoD capabilities during the Proposers Day.
