DARPA’s N-ZERO extends the lifetime of IoT devices and remote sensors from months to years

Today U.S. soldiers are being killed because the Defense Department cannot deploy all the sensors it would like to. DoD could  deploy sensors every few yards to detect  buried  improvised explosive device (IED). As it is, every sensor deployed today has to be battery powered, so even if vast sensor nets …

DARPA’s Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program is advancing autonomy to aid military operations in dense urban areas or heavily wooded forests

“The goal of Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA)  is to develop advanced algorithms to allow unmanned air or ground vehicles to operate without the guidance of a human tele-operator, GPS, or any datalinks going to or coming from the vehicle,” said JC Ledé, the DARPA FLA program manager. Autonomous flight capabilities …

DARPA creating a Secure, Private Internet and Cloud for Warfighters at the tactical edge to quickly share current intelligence information and imagery on their mobile devices

Warfighters at the tactical edge are generally required to communicate with base facilities in order to report and retrieve new information about their locations, missions, and potential threats. With current communications technology, this critical operational content is not always immediately accessible nor distributable for warfighters who are outside of the …
