We're excited to announce that OSRF and BIT Systems are seeking
innovative and revolutionary robotics projects for the Robotics Fast
Track program, sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects
Agency (DARPA):


The goals of Robotics Fast Track (RFT) are to:

* Enable rapid, cost-effective development of new robotics
capabilities designed to respond to, and even anticipate, quickly
evolving needs in space, maritime, ground, and air operations. RFT
will focus on the development of groundbreaking robotic hardware and
software by funding novel approaches as well as creative adaptations
of existing technologies.

* Achieve breakthrough capabilities in less time and at a fraction of
the cost typical of government-supported robotic development processes
by engaging highly agile organizations and individuals who
traditionally have not worked with the U.S. government.
