Since its founding, DARPA has pushed the limits of what is possible to develop breakthrough technologies for national security. 2018 marks DARPA’s sixtieth anniversary, and in September, to cap this milestone year, the Agency is hosting a multifaceted symposium dubbed “D60: Breakthrough Technology | Past, Present, Future.” The institutional goals of the event are to strengthen and expand DARPA’s innovation ecosystem (which includes academia, industry, and government partners), inform stakeholders about DARPA’s vision and priorities, and learn from the Agency’s ongoing record of achievements and experience in the challenges of rendering not-yet technology into here-now technology.
