DEVCOM Army Research Laboratory is seeking proposals for research to further develop adaptive, goal-driven, semantically-aware, distributed analytics for situational understanding at the tactical edge.

DEVCOM expects to fund 3 – 4 projects for USD$500,000 – $700,000 per year for 2 years (via yearly options).

Research Goals

  • Distributed  in‐network  reasoning  with  adaptive  analytics  at  the  edge.  Novel  frameworks  and algorithms that enable analytics at the edge under limited resource availability (machine learning services, compute, memory, storage and comms) through intelligent information management techniques.
  • Agile AI at the edge.  Analytics at the edge must adapt not only to varying requirements (such as accuracy and latency) but also to resource availability (machine learning services, compute, memory, storage and comms) and to the adversarial environment
  • Cross-layer multimodal networking and communications.  Future tactical networks will comprise a multitude of diverse communication technologies and interfaces spanning the electromagnetic spectrum.  Novel approaches are required to control extremely heterogeneous networks to ensure resilience in highly dynamic tactical scenarios, adapting to meet survivability.
  • Network monitoring for sensing temporal and spatial network dominance/identification of windows of opportunity. Windows of opportunity will be dynamic and possibly short-lived, requiring fast accurate inferencing, which will entail efficient collection of metrics/attributes from different domains that evolve at different time and spatial scales and are stochastic.

Proposals are due 20 March 2024.

This special notice is issued under the Broad Agency Announcement for Foundational Research W911NF-23-S-0001-0002.
