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.
Only a few decades ago, finding a particular channel on the radio or television meant dialing a knob by hand, making small tweaks and adjustments to hone in on the right signal. Of course, we now take such fine tuning for granted, simply pressing a button to achieve the same effect. This convenience is enabled by radio frequency synthesis, the generation of accurate signal frequencies from a single reference oscillator.
The Direct On-Chip Digital Optical Synthesizer (DODOS) program seeks to create a technological revolution in optical frequency control analogous to the disruptive advances in microwave frequency control in the 1940s.
Program Manager
Dr. Karr joined DARPA as a Program Manager in June 2012. His areas of interest include ISR and EW technologies and systems, optical LPD/LPI sensing and communication, new weapon technologies and effects, weapon and ISR countermeasures and counter-countermeasures, space control, and the integration of space with tactical systems.
Program Manager
Mr. John Waterston joined DARPA in 2017 as a program manager in the Strategic Technology Office (STO). Mr. Waterston’s interests are in maritime autonomy, undersea warfare, distributed sensing, and non-traditional communications.
