Defense-optimization problems using mixed-signal logic the focus of QuICC program from DARPA - NewsOctober 05, 2021
ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched an initiative called the Quantum-Inspired Classical Computing (QuICC) program, which seeks to leverage lessons learned from benchmarking quantum algorithms to develop QI [quantum-inspired] solvers for a range of complex U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) problems and demonstrate the feasibility of reducing the required computational energy by at least two orders of magnitude over existing techniques.
Hypersonic vehicle concept notches successful test flight by DARPA and U.S. Air Force - NewsSeptember 27, 2021
ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) teamed up recently with the U.S. Air Force to complete a free flight test of the DARPA Hypersonic Air-breathing Weapon Concept (HAWC). The missile -- built for DARPA by Raytheon Technologies -- was released from an aircraft seconds before its Northrop Grumman scramjet [supersonic combustion ramjet] engine kicked on.
DARPA wants satellite constellations to talk to each other - NewsSeptember 14, 2021
ARLINGTON, Va. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has announced a new push to create a novel optical communications terminal to interconnect diverse constellations of small low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites into a resilient space layer, or what DARPA officials are calling an "internet of small satellites."
Active Flow Control tech by BAE Systems selected by DARPA for CRANE program - NewsSeptember 10, 2021
WASHINGTON. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded a contract to BAE Systems to design a full scale demonstrator concept with Active Flow Control at its core. The aircraft’s ability to maneuver in flight without conventional flight control surfaces could enable improved performance, maintainability, and survivability.
