DARPA’s Strategic Technology Office (STO) aims to provide the U.S. military lethality using a strategy called Mosaic Warfare: fast, scalable, adaptive joint multi-domain lethality. STO’s areas of interest include: Mosaic Technologies, Mosaic Effect Web Services (EWS), Mosaic Experimentation, and Foundational Strategic Technologies and Systems..
Expanding on technology development to fight as a system of systems (SoS), STO accelerated the concept to adapt at mission speed. The ultimate vision: warfighters arriving at the battlespace and immediately composing a desired effect from whatever capabilities are available. In achieving “Mosaic Warfare,” Mosaic Technologies will need to provide solutions or automate the following functions:
Mosaic Web Services
STO has a legacy of developing advanced mission systems technologies: sensors, seekers, and electronic warfare. Recently, STO has been developing these systems to enable and be enabled by an SoS. In Mosaic Warfare, these capabilities are ‘tiles’ within the mosaic, or Mosaic EWS. STO is seeking technologies that focus on novel sensors and effectors consistent with the Mosaic Warfare strategy, such as the “find and fix” portions of the kill chain and offensive non-kinetic effects for employment against peer adversaries.
Foundational Strategic Technologies and Systems
STO is pursuing innovative ideas for systems and Mosaic Warfare architectures incorporating disruptive technologies that provide significant potential capability improvement across multiple focus areas. Technologies would reduce the size, weight, power, or cost of systems; allow for adaptability and/or rapid refresh; and offer significant advances in system-level performance.
