DARPA CHARIOT developing Quantum proof cryptography for Military Mobile and IoT security

The exponential price/performance improvements in semiconductor technology stemming from Moore’s Law are enabling even the smallest and most application-specific devices, such as sensors and actuators, to include networking capabilities. The overwhelming majority of such devices will be cheap and power-constrained. Low device costs permit deployment in unprecedented numbers, with some …

DARPA HACCS employing AI for cybersecurity by developing autonomous software agents, that will infiltrate adversary’s networks, detect botnets and neutralize them

As the complexity of software is growing software vulnerabilites are also increasing. According to two US based organizations that track vulnerability disclosure, the number of software vulnerabilities has gradually grown year-over-year achieving its highest peak in 2017. Computers are not patched reliably, configured properly, or used safely, allowing widespread exploitation. …

DARPA V-SPELLS to develop automated tools for understanding, Re-engineering and Assurance of legacy software of Defense and Aerospace systems

The complexity of  aerospace and defense software has grown manyfold. For example, the U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor jet fighter, consists of about 1.7 million lines of software code, while the F-35 joint strike fighter has about 5.7 million lines of code to operate its onboard systems. Boeing’s new 787 …

US Army’s JUDI is employing Conversational AI to imrpove soldier-robot interaction for Manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T)

Since fully autonomous UAS are still far off, the  US Army has developed concept of Manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T)  for operation in A2/AD environments. Through MUM-T operations they expect to combine the strengths of manned and unmanned  platform to increase situational awareness, allowing the armed forces to conduct operations that include …

US Army developing Manned-Unmanned Teaming ( MUM-T ) technologies in multiple domains for operation in A2/AD environments

US military is facing increasingly Anti-access /Area denial environment, a set of overlapping military capabilities and operations designed to slow the deployment of U.S. forces to a region, reduce the tempo of those forces once there, and deny the freedom of action necessary to achieve military objectives . Unmanned Air …

DOD Digital Engineering Strategy based on Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) for Military System of Systems (SOS)

A system is defined by NASA as  a construct or collection of different elements that together produce results not obtainable by the elements alone. Systems Engineering (SE) is defined as: The process by which a customer’s needs are satisfied through the conceptualization, design, modeling, testing, implementation, and operation of a working …

DARPA’s ARC and BLADE developed Cognitive and Adaptive Electronic warfare Systems to Counter dynamic wireless communication and radar threats

Electronic warfare provide  means to counter adversary’s radar and communication systems  while protecting one’s own systems through  Electronic Attack (EA), Electronic Protection (EP) and Electronic Support (ES). Jamming systems still rely on classified databases of known emitter signals. As radars emit energy, an onboard receiver characterises the incoming signal and and …

Cognitive and Adaptive Radar technologies can counter advanced electronic threats

RADAR offers special advantages with respect to other types of sensors including all-day, all-weather operations, long detection distance and, depending on the frequency used, penetration. Moreover, radar can often be carried by a number of platforms, spanning from classic naval and airborne to more recent space-borne, UAVs, such as drones, …

DARPA’s SAIL-ON developing military AI systems that can effectively react to an adversary’s surprise actions,

Current artificial intelligence (AI) systems excel at tasks defined by rigid rules – such as mastering the board games Go and chess with proficiency surpassing world-class human players. Current AI systems. “Imagine if the rules for chess were changed mid-game,” said Ted Senator, program manager in DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office. “How …
