DARPA Microsystems Technology Office is seeking innovative proposals for the development and demonstration of scalable algorithms that replace large matrix operations, facilitated by the design of supporting distributed processing hardware. The primary application of the algorithms and hardware will be large elemental digital arrays. Novel processing approaches adapted from disciplines outside of radar and phased arrays are of particular interest.
SOAP will run as an 18-month, single-phase program that will develop scalable algorithms to be implemented on distributed on-array processors through the co-design and simulation of algorithms, processing elements, and interconnects.
- realising scalable algorithms for digital array computations
- realising processing architectures that can scale to extremely large aggregate data rates
Abstracts (non-compulsory) are due 17 February 2024, with full proposals due 4 March 2024.
(please note the due date has been extended)
