The intent of this solicitation, DARPA-BAA-09-38, Comprehensive Interior Reconnaissance, is to investigate technological approaches that leverage building infrastructure to opportunistically collect information for interior awareness. DARPA believes that opportunistic sensing may be exploited to infer urban interior building awareness using exterior observations. Specifically, DARPA asserts that:

The geometry and stimulus response of building infrastructure contains tactically useful information on the interior structure. Infrastructure includes, but is not limited to, the structural, electrical, plumbing, and ventilation systems.

Such information may be acquired through access to the exterior of buildings that may include direct contact with an exterior umbilical, but does not require contact or deployments within the building.

Approaches to acquiring such information may require active as well as passive sensing.

Multiple sensing technologies and approaches may be required to provide complete building interior awareness.

A mission is expected to depend upon an optimal mix of approaches determined by the specific environment.

DARPA is soliciting proposals to investigate and validate multiple Sensing Technology approaches that collectively meet all Program Metrics for below- and above-ground awareness. See attached for complete BAA.
