DARPA plays a central role in developing a range of innovative technologies that maintain and ensure the overwhelming superiority of U.S. military forces.
To accomplish its mission and to enhance national security, DARPA works closely with DoD service members. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines are integral to DARPA’s day-to-day decisions and long range research. From GPS satellites to MEMS technology…from rockets to the M-16 rifle, DARPA stands shoulder to shoulder with the U.S. warfighter.
Liaisons from each branch of military service and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency are assigned to the Director’s Office at DARPA. Their critical duties include maintaining DARPA’s connection to their respective military service and/or Agency and assisting with the transition of DARPA technology to the Services.
DARPA’s Operational Liaisons serve as points of contact for the Military Services. Service members with technical questions or needs are encouraged to contact a liaison or program manager.
