A bid to force manufacturers to make cars and other devices more secure.
The program will pair ground troops with future UAV flotillas that will use player-developed strategies.
Submarines use towed sonar, so why can't a ship use a parasailing radar?
The system would call for a network of acoustic emitters that submarines could use to triangulate their exact position, just like the GPS in your car.
DARPA has selected the next design of its VTOL X-Plane, a crazy UAV with 24 ducted fans, a 4,000-hp engine, and the ability to hit speeds up to 460 mph.
America's fighters are "a lot closer" to fitting laser weapons than people think, Air Force Gen. Hawk Carlisle said.
A DARPA test back in March has successfully launched two different rear-facing weapons from a Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor cargo plane.
A DARPA program has allowed a quadriplegic woman with no flight training experience to control an F-35 simulator using nothing but her thoughts.
Launching satellites could be getting cheaper if DARPA's Airborne Launch Assist Space Access system is successful. Check out the video of the system here.
60 Minutes has a segment showing how the Software Innovation Division of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency hacks into a Chevrolet Impala through the Onstar telematics system and gains control of the vehicle while reporter Leslie Stahl is driving.
Got stealth? Alta Motors and Logos Technologies have won a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award to further development of the SilentHawk, a two-wheel-drive electric-hybrid motorcycle with military ambitions.
The importance of a soldier's foot speed has been known since well before Pheidippides made his famous run during the Battle of Marathon. And while humans on the whole are faster than their ancestors, thanks to more advanced technology and training methods, there are still biomechanical speed limits that mean our men and women in the armed forces will never be as quick as they (or their commanding officers) would like.
Before the military can start constructing TIE Fighters and Galaxy-class starships, attempts to militarize space need to start a bit more simply. This is the XS-1, a concept space plane designed by Northrop Grumman under a $3.9-million contract from DARPA as part of an experimental space plane program.
DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, are kind of like the black mages of the US Department of Defense, coming up with the most cutting edge, and consequently, most classified projects for this great nation of ours. While there are a number of things it probably isn't talking about, the secretive service is discussing the future of armored warfare.
The $10,000 prize for successfully hacking a Tesla Model S has been claimed. A team from Zhejiang University in China claimed victory at the Symposium on Security for Asia Network (SyScan360) event in Beijing by exploiting a "flow design flaw," whatever that means, to gain access to vital systems including the door locks, horn and window controls, while the vehicle was moving.
When meeting a duo of computer hackers for the very first time, we imagine hearing the words "We want to convince you that we can hurt you – without hurting you," is bound to release the hounds of anxiety upon your mental makeup. At least, it would ours. And it's those words, uttered by Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek to Forbes staff reporter Andy Greenberg, that introduce us to the reality that modern-day cars can indeed be hacked.
Looks like Tesla might be hiding more in its software than blind spot detection and adaptive cruise control. According to Bloomberg, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is "discussing" autonomous cars with Google, specifically the Lidar laser tracking system. Oh, and if you're going to have a self-driving future Tesla vehicle, then you shouldn't call it autonomous. Instead, Musk prefers the term autopilot. As he told Bloomberg, "Self-driving sounds like it's going to do something you don't want it to do. Autopi
The U.S. Department of Defense's Advanced Research Projects Agency, commonly known as DARPA, awarded $1 million for the crowdsourced design of a new "mobility and drivetrain subsystem" for a next generation amphibious infantry fighting vehicle on Monday. Over 200 teams submitted designs to DARPA's Fast Adaptable Next-Generation Ground Vehicle (FANG) drivetrain challenge via the agency's VehicleForge website. The winning submission came from Ground Systems, a 3-person team spread across Californi
