The purpose of this Proposers Day is to provide information on the RN DMC program. The RN DMC program's objective is to provide long-range communications through 'mosaic' antennas composed of spatially distributed low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) transceiver elements or 'tiles'. The RN DMC approach replaces high powered amplifiers and large directional antennas with mosaics of spatially dispersed tile transceivers. Transmit power is spatially distributed amongst the tiles, and gain is achieved through signal processing rather than the use of a physical antenna aperture to concentrate energy. Individual tiles can use radio frequency (RF) sounding to estimate channel responses and adjust transmit carrier phases. This enables the distributed mosaic antenna to form directional beams and/or spatial nulls in desired directions.

While jet lag and traveler's diarrhea are inconveniences for an average traveler, they are critical challenges to operational readiness for a warfighter and can be the difference between mission success or failure. To maximize warfighter performance, the ADvanced Acclimation and Protection Tool for Environmental Readiness (ADAPTER) program will develop systems to provide warfighters with control over their own physiology. This program will integrate therapeutic cellular factories and biomolecules into an internal, bioelectronics carrier that the warfighter can signal, as needed, to initiate the production and release of therapies that either eliminate the principal cause of traveler's diarrhea - pathogenic bacteria - or regulate disrupted circadian rhythms caused by jetlag or shift work schedules

The mission of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is to make strategic, early investments in science and technology that will have long-term positive impact on our nation's national security. In support of this mission, DARPA has pioneered groundbreaking research and development (R&D) in Artificial Intelligence (AI) for more than five decades.
