Smithsonian National Museum of American History
On May 19, 2018, DARPA is taking part in Military Invention Day at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, an event produced by the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. The event will showcase examples of today’s leading-edge military inventions alongside historical technologies from the Museum’s collections, offer attendees the chance to meet scientists and engineers, and provide hands-on invention challenges.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives that will be specified in an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) of the Modular Optical Apertures Building Blocks (MOABB) program. The MOAB program aims to develop advanced technologies that could catalyze the creation of ultracompact light detection and ranging (LIDAR) systems.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential performers on the new Semantic Forensics (SemaFor) program. SemaFor seeks to develop innovative semantic technologies for automatically analyzing multi-modal media assets (i.e., text, audio, image, video) to defend against large-scale, automated disinformation attacks. Semantic detection algorithms will determine if media is generated or manipulated; attribution algorithms will infer if media originates from a particular organization or individual; characterization algorithms will reason about whether media was generated or manipulated for malicious purposes. The results of detection, attribution, and characterization algorithms will be used to develop explanations for system decisions and prioritize assets for analyst review. SemaFor technologies could help to identify, understand, and deter adversary disinformation campaigns.
The United States Government has an interest in developing and maintaining a strategic understanding of events, situations, and trends around the world, in a variety of domains. The information used in developing this understanding comes from many disparate sources, in a variety of genres, and data types, and as a mixture of structured and unstructured data. Unstructured data can include text or speech in English and a variety of other languages, as well as images, videos, and other sensor information.
The ability to see farther, with higher clarity, and through darkness and/or obscurants, is vital to nearly all military operations. At the same time, for advanced imaging systems there is an immense need to increase field of view (FOV), resolution, and day/night capability at reduced size, weight and power (SWaP) and cost. The main driver for these requirements is the need to provide dismounted soldiers and near-ground support platforms with the best available imaging tools to enhance combat effectiveness.
