Introduction to DARPA project in 26 letters

The project of atomic clock with enhanced stability (ACES) aims to improve the frequency and timing accuracy of small and light-weight, low-power (SWAP) platforms. These battery powered atomic clocks should be calibrated in the shortest time after being powered on, and maintain a certain timing and frequency accuracy in military applications.

Broad operational language translation (bolt) project aims to explore new ways of communication and provide translation and language analysis for online and personal communication. The initial phase of the project was to help soldiers and officials translate English into the listener's native language in real time, and vice versa. DARPA's ultimate plan is to turn bolt into a powerful tool to help everyone communicate more fluently without learning each other's language.

The cooperative operations in denied environment (code) project aims to expand the capability of the U.S. military's existing UAV system (UAS) to conduct dynamic long-range engagement with high maneuvering targets on the ground and at sea in the fight / denial space by developing advanced algorithms and software. The project seeks to create a modular software architecture that goes beyond the current state-of-the-art level, can adapt to different bandwidth constraints and communication interference, and is compatible with current standards, and can be installed economically on the existing UAV platform.

The dialysate like therapeutics (DLT) project aims to support force support and armaments by improving intensive care in poor resource environments and providing new tools for rapid response to emerging infectious disease threats. DLT was originally intended to target a life-threatening blood infection called sepsis, but DARPA is working to expand DLT technology to reduce the threat of harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and agents in the blood.

The engineering living materials (ELM) project aims to create a new kind of materials which combines the structural characteristics and life system characteristics of traditional building materials. Through the elm project, workers can "grow" the materials they need using natural materials on site, which can reduce energy consumption and cost.

The ground x-vehicle technologies (gxv-t) project aims to improve the mobility, survivability, safety and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without relying on armor. In terms of enhancing survivability, DARPA is studying how to enhance the crew by equipping new cockpits and adopting driving AIDS. In terms of mobility, DARPA takes a very different approach, including avoiding armor and developing options that enable fast travel and agility in all terrain.

The high assurance cyber military systems (hacms) project aims to build the right systems and meet the right security and security performance creation technologies. In addition to generating code, hacms also seeks a synthesizer that can generate machine verifiable proofs, so that the generated code meets the functional specifications and security and safety policies. A key technical challenge is to develop technologies to ensure that these proofs are composable and to build high assurance components of high assurance systems.

The interference and co evolutionary prevention and therapy (intersect) project aims to create a new adaptive form of medical countermeasures using virus evolution - therapeutic interference particles (TIPS) to fight against virus in vivo to prevent or treat infection. If successful, intercept will provide a new treatment for the rapidly developing viruses such as Ebola, SARS, dengue, Zika and Chikungunya, provide a wide coverage for multiple viruses, and provide a platform technology.

The Joint University microelectronics program (jump) aims to solve the emerging and existing challenges in microelectronics technology. The mission of jump and its six research centers is to promote a new round of basic research and provide the Ministry of national defense and national security with the subversive technologies based on Microelectronics needed during 2025-2030.

The local control of materials synthesis (loco) project aims to develop a method to realize thin film deposition process at low temperature. DARPA believes that providing energy support for the deposition reaction is the key to the film deposition process, while the traditional high temperature (thermal) heating method is only one of the ways to provide energy, not the decisive factor. DARPA plans to optimize the flux of reactants, surface transport and other key technology points in the film deposition process, so as to form a new low-temperature film deposition technology.

The mining and understanding software packages (Muse) project aims to identify and analyze hundreds of billions of open source codes by using the method of big data analysis, so as to get the common in-depth commonness of different software in the development, and to take big data analysis to a new level. DARPA hopes to develop "big code" software package that can manage information through Muse project. It will not deform or collapse under the pressure of big data sets. The project aims at big data, which is the core of the technology plan announced by the Obama administration in 2012.

The neural engineering system design (nesd) project aims to develop "an implantable system that enables the brain to communicate with the digital world directly and accurately". This interface system can convert the electrochemical signals used by brain neurons into "0" and "1" machine languages used in information technology. The project will help scientists to understand the neural functions of vision, hearing and language, and finally develop a new treatment plan for patients with sensory defects.

The purpose of the open manufacturing (OM) project is to build and verify the rapid identification technology related to additive manufacturing, so as to fully understand, analyze and control the variability of relevant manufacturing procedures, and speculate on the properties of manufactured products. The technology has been put into application. For example, the US Navy has used the "open manufacturing" framework and data model to manufacture the metal parts critical to flight. In 2017, it deployed the relevant metal parts manufactured by additive manufacturing technology for V-22, H-1, ch-53k and other flight platforms.

The power efficiency revolution for embedded computing technologies (perfect) project aims to create a revolutionary computing power efficiency method and improve the computing power. This method includes near threshold voltage operation, large-scale heterogeneous processing concurrency, innovative architecture development, concurrent computing and soft fault tolerance. Perfect project will use 7Nm manufacturing process, specifically for embedded system processing capacity, efficiency and performance. The development of perfect project will be divided into five aspects: architecture, concurrency, elasticity, orientation and algorithm. Architecture will solve the innovation and development of power efficiency of software and hardware; concurrency will solve the problem that software and hardware support high-level concurrent computing; flexibility will focus on solving the problem of software errors; orientation will focus on the location and availability of management data to minimize the communication of operation data; algorithm will use software technology to reduce energy consumption.
