Decentralization

The ability to update underlying capabilities in large and massively complex systems inexpensively and quickly is crucial to avoid outdated and inferior electronics. The increasing complexity of our major military systems precludes rapid change so it is essential that we move towards a new model that allows for quick adoption of new and modern electronics.

On June 1, 2017, the DARPA Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) announced a new Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) to ensure far-reaching improvements in electronics performance well beyond the limits of traditional scaling. The ERI will draw on new and existing DARPA programs to make a significant investment into enabling circuit specialization and managing complexity. Building on the tradition of other successful government-industry partnerships, the ERI aims to forge forward-looking collaborations among the commercial electronics community, defense industrial base, university researchers, and the DoD.

The goal of the Adapting Cross-domain Kill-webs (ACK) program is to develop an overall framework, algorithms, and software prototypes for decentralized construction and adaption of multi-domain (space, air, land, surface, subsurface, cyber) kill webs – i.e. software decision aids to coordinate the selection of the specific sensors, effectors, and support elements across domains to form kill webs delivering desired effects on targets.
