Marine Corps Eyeing Modular, Interoperable Robotic Systems

At the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory, officials are grappling with an evolving threat environment that requires the development of cutting-edge capabilities to keep pace with adversaries, said Jeff Tomczak, the lab’s deputy director for science and technology. One area of focus is the infantry squad. The service wants to give Marines robotic systems that enhance

DARPA OFFSET: Autonomous Drone Swarms for Warfighters

Raytheon and Northrop Grumman have been awarded Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency contracts to develop drone swarms for urban combat environments. DARPA’s OFFensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics, or OFFSET, program, aims to equip small infantry units with swarms of 250 or more robotic aircraft and ground vehicles. Under the Phase I research contracts, Raytheon BBN Technologies and

DARPA Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2) & Battle of the ModRecs

Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2) The DARPA Spectrum Collaboration Challenge is the first-of-its-kind collaborative machine-learning competition to overcome scarcity in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. Today, spectrum is managed by dividing it into rigid, exclusively licensed bands. This human-driven process is not adaptive to the dynamics of supply and demand, and thus cannot exploit the full
