DARPA’s Wireless Network Defense program seeks to develop new technologies to help make wireless networks more resilient to unforeseen scenarios and malicious compromise


In areas lacking trustworthy communications infrastructure, deployed service members rely on wireless devices to perform double duty: they not only provide access to the network; they are the network. In particular, the protocols that have been developed for military wireless networks require the nodes in the network to coordinate among …

DARPA designing efficient Agile Human-Machine Teams to execute battlefield, cyber and electronic warfare missions


Modern military operations are dynamic and complex—requiring, for example, that infantry squads carry out their missions simultaneously in the 3-dimensional physical world, the cyber domain, and across the electromagnetic spectrum. Similarly, complexity and tempo are challenges to team operations in other applications including scientific and drug discovery, software engineering, logistics planning, advanced …

DARPA Next Generation Social Science program seek new models, theories, and tools for predictive science of social phenomena


Military commanders require means for detecting and anticipating long-term strategic instability. They have to get ahead and stay ahead of conflicts, whether those conflicts are within nation states, between nation states, and/or between non-nation states. In establishing or maintaining security in a region, cooperation and planning by the regional combatant …

DARPA developing milimmter wave wireless communications to connect dismounted warfighters using UAVs and provide 100 Gb/s RF Backbone (100G)using High-altitude, long-endurance platforms.


Missions in remote, forward operating locations often suffer from a lack of connectivity to tactical operation centers and access to valuable intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data. The assets needed for long-range, high-bandwidth communications capabilities are often unavailable to lower echelons due to theater-wide mission priorities.   DARPA’s Mobile Hotspots …

Data Glasses like Google Glass make a comeback with new features and technologies, projected to surpass the expected shipments of mobile phones by 2025


Data glasses mirror information to the eye without interfering with the wearer‘s vision via a small display. They present the eye with information or images which are received using a radio link from the frame of the glasses. The big advantage with the data glasses, is that the wearer’s hands are free – in contrast, a smartphone has to be held in the hand. This could be advantageous for anyone from mechanics reading assembly instructions to cyclists following projected navigation arrows  as they travel across the country.   Apple has partnered with German lens and optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss AG on a new pair of augmented reality (AR) smart …

Ensuring Software reliability of military and mission critical systems


As computing devices become more pervasive, the software systems that control them have become increasingly more complex and sophisticated. Consequently, despite the tremendous resources devoted to making software more robust and resilient, ensuring that programs are correct—especially at scale—remains a difficult and challenging endeavor. Unfortunately, uncaught errors triggered during program …
