ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched what it calls the Automating Scientific Knowledge Extraction and Modeling (ASKEM) program, under which it chose multiple research teams -- sourced from universities and companies -- that will look into the use of artificial intelligence (AI) approaches and tools to create, sustain, and enhance complex models and simulators for various use cases.
ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has issued a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeking proposals for its new Environment-driven Conceptual Learning (ECOLE) program, which intends to radically improve computational systems that analyze large amounts of multimedia by creating artificial intelligence (AI) agents capable of continually learning from linguistic and visual input.
LAFAYETTE, Colo. Blue Canyon Technologies (BCT) and SEAKR Engineering (wholly owned subsidiaries of Raytheon Technologies) announced that they have delivered one Saturn-class microsatellite bus and completed acceptance testing of the first two of twelve "Pit Boss" battle-management systems for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Blackjack satellite program.
ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is moving into Phase 2 of its No Manning Required Ship (NOMARS) program, which seeks to build and demonstrate a revolutionary new medium unmanned surface vessel (MUSV) that can go to sea and perform missions with unprecedented reliability and availability, while carrying a significant payload. The agency selected Serco Inc.’s design to move forward at the conclusion of Phase 1.
ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) chose 11 teams for the first phase of what it's calling the "Space-Based Adaptive Communications Node" or Space-BACN program, which intends to build a low-cost, reconfigurable optical communications terminal that adapts to most optical intersatellite link standards, translating between diverse satellite constellations and creating what the agency dubbed an "internet" of low-Earth-orbit (LEO) satellites.
ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) launched a program called "Muons for Science & Security" (MuS2) with the aim of discovering a compact source of muons, which are deeply penetrating subatomic particles -- similar to electrons but about 200 times heavier -- that can be used in a variety of defense and scientific applications because they travel easily through dozens to hundreds of meters of water, solid rock, or soil.
CENTENNIAL, Colo. Aerospace manufacturer SEAKR Engineering announced that it has successfully demonstrated optical inter-satellite links between two satellites operated by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
