The holiday season is an important time for military Service members and veterans to enjoy time with their families. Ensuring that the right gifts arrive for the right people on time is key to maintaining morale and force effectiveness. To do its part, DARPA has launched the High-speed Optimized Handling of Holiday Operations (HO HO HO) initiative, which is designed to help Santa Claus and his elves more quickly and efficiently complete their holiday duties.
HO HO HO offers St. Nicholas and his helpers access to research from numerous DARPA programs, including:
“In pursuing our mission to invest in breakthrough technologies for national security, we’re always on the lookout for nontraditional partners who can help us transition our research to fulfill critical needs,” said a DARPA spokesman, discussing the HO HO HO program on background from DARPA’s northernmost workshop. “We wish all our partners in the technology innovation ecosystem happy holidays.”
