DARPA Seeking More Stable Atomic Clocks

DARPA's Microsystems Technology Office is soliciting research proposals for the development of high-stability timekeeping instruments with suitably low size, weight, and power to enable their widespread deployment in battery-powered portable applications.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Microsystems Technology Office will host a Proposers Day on Feb. 1 in support of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement for the new Atomic Clock with Enhanced Stability (ACES) program. The Proposers Day will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST at the DARPA Conference Center in Arlington, Va. The registration deadline is 5 p.m.EST on Jan. 25.

According to DARPA's announcement, the aim of the meeting is to provide information and promote additional discussion on the ACES program, address questions from potential proposers, and provide an opportunity for potential proposers to share their capabilities and ideas for teaming arrangements. The Proposers Day will include overview presentations by government personnel, technical presentations by potential proposers and collaborators, and an open poster session to facilitate interaction and teaming.
