DARPA’s CHIPS program developing miniaturized modular chips that can rapidly integrated into military systems like drones


Today’s leading edge electronic designs are complex, expensive, and often involve teams spread across the globe; factors that have driven drastic growth in non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs. Additionally, the monolithic nature of these designs means that any change to a portion of the chip requires a re-spin of the entire …

DARPA developing Very Low Frequency (VLF) systems to provide GPS like position and timing technologies in contested, underwater and underground Environments


The GPS system provides critical positioning capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. However, in many environments in which military operates (inside buildings, in urban canyons, under dense foliage, underwater, and underground) have limited or no GPS access. It can be significantly degraded or unavailable during solar …
