Advanced Graphic Intelligence Logical Computing Environment (AGILE)
IARPA, in partnership with DEVCOM ARL’s Army Research Office, seeks research and development of innovative, energy-efficient, reliable computer architectures for the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community (IC) to implement large-scale data-analytic applications.
ARL Broad Agency Announcement (BAA)
The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is a competitive solicitation procedure used to obtain proposals for basic and applied research.
Army Center for Synthetic Biology
The Army Center for Synthetic Biology is a basic research program initiated by the Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory. It focuses on areas of strategic importance to U.S. national security. It seeks to increase the Army’s intellectual capital in synthetic biology and improve its ability to address future challenges.
Broad Agency Announcements (BAA)
Collection of DEVCOM ARL’s announcements used to obtain proposals for basic and applied research and the part of development not related to the development of a specific system or hardware procurement.
Collaborative Research Alliance (CRA)
Collaborative Research Alliances (CRAs) are academia-led partnerships which leverage the cutting-edge innovation found in the academic environment. They are partnerships between Army laboratories and centers, industry, and academia that facilitate university- and industry-based research.
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA)
A Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) establishes a cooperative relationship between a federal laboratory and its collaborator(s) for the purpose of advancing research and development and generating new intellectual property (IP).
DEVCOM ARL Implementation of Army Futures Command (AFC) Army Research Risk Assessment Protection Program (ARRP)
The DEVCOM ARL implementation of the AFC Army Research Risk Assessment Protection Program (ARRP) is an effort to help identify and mitigate existing or potential risk of Conflicts of Commitment/Conflicts of Interest (CoC/CoI) in Army research grants and cooperative agreements.
Entangled Logical Qubits (ELQ)
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), in partnership with DEVCOM ARL, aims to advance the state of the science in universal fault-tolerant quantum computing by demonstrating high-fidelity entanglement between error-corrected logical qubits using a modular architecture.
National Security Agency’s Laboratory for Physical Sciences Qubit Collaboratory
The National Security Agency’s Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS) in partnership with DEVCOM ARL launched the LPS Qubit Collaboratory (LQC). The LQC pursues disruptive qubit research, innovative workforce development programs, and deep, collaborative partnerships to tackle some of the hardest open problems in quantum information science and technology.
Patent License Agreement (PLA)
Under the Federal Technology Transfer Act, ARL makes federally funded inventions from basic and applied research available to the private sector, or industry, for new product development and sales to benefit private industry and the overall public interest.
Rapid Explanation, Analysis and Sourcing Online (REASON)
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), in partnership with DEVCOM ARL, aims to develop novel technologies that will enable intelligence analysts to substantially improve the evidence and reasoning in draft analytic reports. Intelligence analysts sort through huge amounts of often uncertain and conflicting information as they strive to answer intelligence questions.
Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) / Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), in partnership with DEVCOM ARL, seeks research and development of innovative, energy-efficient, reliable computer architectures for the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community to implement large-scale data-analytic applications, as well as other classes of large problems.
Target Audience(s):Small Business
Test Services Agreement (TSA)
Department of Defense laboratories may make available to any person or entity (including universities), on a reimbursable basis, laboratory services for the testing of materials, equipment, models, computer software, and other items.
