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

The goals of Robotics Fast Track are to:

  1. Enable rapid, cost-effective development of new robotics capabilities for space, sea, land, and air applications. RFT will focus on the development of groundbreaking robotic hardware and software by funding novel approaches as well as creative adaptations of existing technologies.
  2. 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.

Anyone can apply for Robotics Fast Track funding, both US and non-US organizations.  Learn more and apply at rft.osrfoundation.org!

Open Source Robotics Foundation is an independent non-profit organization founded by members of the global robotics community... read more
