DARPA is seeking submissions of innovative basic or applied research concepts in the technical domain of high-temperature vector magnetometers for high-temperature environments. This μE is issued under the Program Announcement for Microsystems Exploration, DARPA-PA-21-05.
Successful proposals will result in an award of an Other Transaction (OT) for prototype project not to exceed USD$1M.
MagHITS will develop ultra-high-temperature vector magnetometers, producing magnetic sensor proofs of concept applying a probe element that operates at temperatures up to 500 °C, with a sensitivity of 100 pT/√Hz in the bandwidth of 0.1 – 100 Hz.
MagHITS will be an 18-month program with two nine-month phases:
Proposals due 11 May 2023.
