DARPA Eyes Networks of Intelligent Floats to Provide Persistent Wide-Area Ocean Sensor Coverage

U.S. military researchers will brief industry next month on an upcoming project to provide persistent, wide-area sensor coverage across large ocean areas using large numbers of intelligent floats. Officials of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., issued a special notice Wednesday (DARPA-SN-18-14) for the Ocean of Things program proposers day,

Ocean of Things Aims to Expand Maritime Awareness Across Open Seas

The internet of things connects an ever-growing number of smart devices for up-to-the-minute monitoring and tracking of many common events. Head out to most parts of the open ocean, however, and no such capability exists for real-time monitoring of maritime activity. DARPA has
