The advance of technology has evolved the roles of humans and machines in conflict from direct confrontations between humans to engagements mediated by machines. Originally, humans engaged in primitive forms of combat. With the advent of the industrial era, however, humans recognized that machines could greatly enhance their warfighting capabilities. Networks then enabled teleoperation, which eventually proved vulnerable to electronic attack and subject to constraint due to long signal propagation distances and times. The next stage in warfare will involve more capable autonomous systems, but before we can allow such machines to supplement human warfighters, they must achieve far greater levels of intelligence.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is issuing an Artificial Intelligence Exploration (AIE) Opportunity, inviting submissions of innovative basic research concepts in the technical domain of human language technology, cognitive science, and language acquisition.
The goal of the SHEATH Microsystems Exploration topic is to identify and demonstrate technical feasibility for real-time detection against hardware Trojans installed in complex COTS circuit boards. Technologies which detect anomalous excursions with low probability of false alarms could involve any of the following: single-stream or multi-modal sensing, side-channel extractions, trigger discovery via active stimulation, or performance-based machine learning architectures.
This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks revolutionary research ideas for topics not being addressed by ongoing I2O programs or other published solicitations. Potential proposers are highly encouraged to review the current I2O programs ( and solicitations ( to avoid proposing efforts that duplicate existing activities or that are responsive to other published I2O solicitations.
