Purdue University submitted its proposal in regards to Technical Area 1. On February 16, 2012, Purdue submitted their proposal entitled, "Field Programmable Filter Arrays (FPFAs)".  The scientific review panel evaluated the Purdue proposal in accordance with the approved DARPA BAA 12-13, and concluded with a determination that the proposal was selectable and recommended that the proposal be funded.

The goal of this technical area is to investigate the reconfigurability and programmability of individual RF components or banks of such components. Examples include reconfigurable RF
and IF filters, low-noise amplifiers, mixers, matching networks, power amplifiers, etc. One or more RF front-end components may be demonstrated through this technical area. Modules produced through this technical area should be universal programmable elements capable of insertion into a wide variety of RF systems. Such reconfigurable modules should demonstrate near identical performance to components developed specifically for that target insertion system.
