DARPA published its Young Faculty Award (YFA) 2018 Research Announcement today, seeking proposals in 26 different topic areas—the largest number of YFA research areas ever solicited.
Dr. Jeff Maas joined DARPA in April 2018 as a program manager in the
Strategic Technology Office. Dr. Maas' research interests include
electronic warfare applications involving distributed systems, real-time
effectiveness monitoring, and strategic employment concepts.
The Blackjack program will develop and demonstrate the critical technical
elements for building a global high-speed network backbone in low earth
orbit (LEO) that enables highly networked, resilient, and persistent DoD
payloads that provide over-the-horizon sensing, signals, and communications
to hold the ground, surface, and air domains in global constant custody. The
program is an architecture demonstration intending to show the high military
utility of global LEO constellations and mesh networks of low size, weight,
power, and cost (SWaP-C) payloads and commoditized satellite buses.
