DARPA's Adaptive Vehicle Make (AVM) portfolio of programs is aimed at compressing at least five-fold the development timelines for new complex cyber-electro-mechanical systems such as military vehicles. Under AVM, DARPA is pursuing the development of several elements of enabling infrastructure aimed at radically transforming the systems engineering/design/verification (META /META-II), manufacturing (iFAB), and innovation (vehicleforge.mil) elements of the overall "make" process for delivering new defense systems or variants. Each of these infrastructure capabilities is largely generic, i.e., applicable to any cyber-electro-mechanical system. In order to exercise these capabilities at scale and in the context of a relevant military system, the present solicitation is aimed at producing FANG-the Fast, Adaptable, Next-Generation Ground Vehicle-a new heavy, amphibious infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) with functional requirements intended to mirror the Marine Corps' Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV). The FANG performer will be responsible for staging a series of FANG Challenges, prize-based design competitions for progressively more complex vehicle subsystems, culminating in the design of a full IFV. The FANG Challenges will leverage the META design tools and the vehicleforge.mil collaboration environment to significantly change the design experience and open the aperture for design innovation.
