The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will host in March a classified meeting, known as the "Sea of Dreams," to share technology challenges in U.S. Pacific Fleet with industry, academic and government organizations.

DARPA's Cross Domain Maritime Surveillance and Targeting program is partnering with PACFLT to talk about concept of operations and warfighting context; demonstrate and explore technologies in a live, virtual and constructive environment; and offer one-on-one discussion opportunities, according to a special notice posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website. Sea of Dreams will be held at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, HI.

According to a preliminary agenda, PACFLT will on March 12 present "relevant analysis, CONOPs, and operational and technology challenges to meeting participants." On the morning of March 13, PACFLT will present operational vignettes to meeting participants; in the afternoon, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with PACFLT staff.

Following the discussions, DARPA will demonstrate an experimentation environment.

The deadline to register for Sea of Dreams is Feb. 9.
