DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals with an integrated approach to transition promising rotorcraft technologies that will enable a Mission Adaptive Rotor (MAR) that is capable of reconfiguration to optimize the rotor for each mission and mission segment for dramatic improvements in system performance, operational availability and survivability; constituent characteristics for each of these improvement areas are provided in Section I.B of the BAA. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in adaptive rotor enabling science, devices or systems. Research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice is specifically excluded. This BAA is for all phases of the MAR program, but only Phase I activity - including development of demonstration plans and component and/or sub-scale testing - will be funded at this time. Potential subsequent phases would fund work towards developing and testing an affordable, full-scale technology demonstrator rotor for ground and flight tests.

Refer to the attachment for a complete copy of DARPA-BAA-09-33. The initial selection round proposal due date is September 21, 2009.
