DARPA’s Lagrange developing optimization algorithms for uncertain, dynamic, multiscale settings like Real time neuroimaging data

Mathematical optimization is a branch of applied mathematics that in the broadest senselooks for best solution with regard to some criterion from some set of available alternatives. The advent of the digital computer and a tremendous subsequent increase in our computational prowess has increased the impact of optimization in our …

One-Dimensional Nanomaterials for next generation electronics , optical communications and multi spectral detectors and cameras

Nanomaterials  are often categorized  based on number of dimensions of a material, which are outside the nanoscale (<100 nm) range. Accordingly, in  one-dimensional nanomaterials (1D), one dimension is outside the nanoscale. This class includes  nanofibers, nanotubes, nanorods, and nanowires. 1D materials are generally considered to be high‐capacity and stable electrode materials, due …

Researchers developing Vanishing or self destructing electronics to avoid being leaked or reverse engineered

In April 2001, a US Navy surveillance plane was intercepted by two Chinese F-8 fighter planes during a routine patrol flight over the Chinese South Sea. The US plane was forced to make an emergency landing in China, after what officials described as a “minor” midair collision, occurred with one of the Chinese planes. The US …

DARPA’s SD2 developing tools to design complex systems like synthetic biology, neuro-computation and polymer chemistry

Engineers regularly use high-fidelity simulations to create robust designs in complex domains such as aeronautics, automobiles, and integrated circuits. In contrast, robust design remains elusive in domains such as synthetic biology, neuro-computation, and polymer chemistry due to the lack of high-fidelity models. DARPA’s Synergistic Discovery and Design (SD2) program aims …

DARPA’s Transparent Computing programme for defeating complex, sophisticated and stealthy long-term Advanced Persistent Threats ( APTs)

Modern computing systems are essentially black boxes that accept inputs and generate outputs, but provide little-to-no visibility of their inner workings, according to DARPA. It can therefore be extremely challenging to detect an intruder, particularly an ‘Advanced Persistent Threat’: a form of attack in which the adversary slowly and deliberately …
