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 …

Military exploring LiFi technology for secure high data rate communications for facilities, vehicles and submarines

The Li-Fi is a wireless communication system in which light is used as a carrier signal instead of traditional radio frequency as in Wi-Fi.  Li-Fi is a technology that utilizes a light emitting diode to transmit data wirelessly. LiFi works by switching LEDs on and off within nanoseconds to communicate …

Advanced hostile fire detection (HFI) technologies to protect aircraft and combat vehicles against small arms, and RAMs

Compact, low cost, accurate hostile fire detection (HFI) solutions are essential to effectively protect aircraft and combat vehicles against small arms, RPGs, mortars, anti-aircraft artillery, and surface to air missiles. Detecting and classifying these types of threats is complicated by many factors including the need for full 360 coverage, requirement …

DARPA developing software-reconfigurable Passive and Active (LIDAR) imaging sensors from ultraviolet (UV) through very long-wave infrared (VLWIR)

Digital cameras use a focal plane array (FPA) to convert light energy into electrical energy that can be processed and stored. The FPA is a two-dimensional (2-D) array of photodetectors (or pixels) fabricated on an electro-optical material. Modern digital cameras contain FPAs that have pixel counts on the order of …
