Suggested topic areas include, but are not limited to: theater resilient communications for kinetic and non-kinetic attacks; multi-domain operations capabilities to counter anti-access/area denial; cyber resilience; innovative approaches to countering small Unmanned Aerial Systems; persistent low-visibility unmanned Aerial Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (A-ISR); and advanced tactical SIGINT systems.

Additionally, the RCCTO has a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) available on the FedBizOpps website and grants.gov. The BAA is directed at advancing state-of-the-art technologies and increasing understanding that would lead to innovations.
This BAA is a continuously open announcement and the RCCTO will periodically make amendments, which will be publicized as special notices on the FedBizOps and grants.gov websites. These special notices will detail specific areas of interest and solicit information and solutions.

Advanced Concepts and Experimentation

Within the Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office, there is a dedicated cell called the Advanced Concepts and Experimentation (ACE) Project Office. The ACE mission is to rapidly develop, test, and transition advanced technologies to address high priority items from RCCTO and Army leadership. The office will serve as the quick reaction cell for rigorous research and analysis, prototyping, experimentation and assessment, in order to demonstrate initial technology for larger efforts or provide a residual combat capability. ACE will also act as a portal to nationwide experts in academia, industry, start-ups and other services. By providing these principal functions, ACE enables Army leaders to make informed decisions on emerging technologies.
