The Protected Forward Communications (PFC) Program aims to enable small unit tactical operations to persist in electronic warfare (EW) conditions by developing an integrated communication system protecting three distinct conversations from exploitation and denial.
Radios are used for a wide range of tasks, from the most mundane to the most critical of communications, from garage door openers to military operations. As the use of wireless technology proliferates, radios and communication devices often interfere with and disrupt other wireless devices. First responder radios need to be able to communicate reliably in such congested and contested environments and to share radio spectrum without direct coordination or spectrum preplanning.
Program Manager
Dr. James Wilson joined DARPA in July 2020 as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO). His research interests include the development of radio frequency (RF), analog, and digital circuits that push the power and performance envelope; novel topologies enabled through heterogeneous integration; and the applications of electronics to enable new RF, EW, and communication opportunities. He is particularly interested in increasing the energy efficiency of electronics to enable ubiquitous, high performance systems for wideband electromagnetic spectrum operations.
Office Director
Dr. Timothy Grayson is the director of the Strategic Technology Office (STO). In this role, he leads the office in development of breakthrough technologies to enable warfighters to field, operate, and adapt distributed, joint, multi-domain combat capabilities at continuous speed. These technologies include sensing, communications, and electronic warfare technology and the supporting tools and decision aids needed to compose, integrate, and operate complex combat architectures.
Program Manager
Mr. John Davies joined DARPA in February 2020 as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO). His research interests include adaptive radio frequency (RF) systems, artificial intelligence, real-time signal processing, configurable computing, and electronic warfare (EW).
