ARLINGTON, Va. – U.S. military researchers will brief industry this month on a project to develop advanced sensor processing for radar digital phased arrays of different sizes and bandwidths.
Officials of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., will brief industry from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. on 11 Dec. 2023 on the Scalable On Array Processing (SOAP) project.
SOAP seeks to develop scalable software algorithms that replace large matrix operations in signal processing with the codesign of distributed processing hardware to support the rapid and efficient execution of the algorithms.
The target application of the effort will be elemental digital phased arrays scaled to arbitrary sizes and bandwidths. Novel processing approaches adapted from disciplines outside of radar and phased arrays are of particular interest.
Briefings on the SOAP digital signal processing program will be at the SA Executive Conference Center, 4075 Wilson Blvd., in Arlington, Va. DARPA anticipates releasing the SOAP Program Solicitation DARPA-PS-24-05 prior to Proposers Day.
Briefings are to reveal details of the program, set up one-on-one meetings with potential bidders, and promote teaming among interested companies. Briefings are unclassified.
Companies interested should register for the industry briefings online at https://web.cvent.com/event/c64ba91a-40f6-459c-a4e3-d8e8d1475cdc/summary.
