The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Strategic Technology Office (STO) is hosting a “Sync with STO” event on August 2 – 3, 2017. The purpose of the event is to (1) familiarize attendees with STO’s vision, problem spaces, program managers (PMs), and technology interests; and (2) facilitate technical discussions between STO PMs and attendees that explore innovative and impactful solution ideas for strategic national security challenges. The event is scheduled for August 2 – 3, 2017, at the DARPA Conference Center located at 675 N. Randolph St. Arlington, VA 22203.
Over the past decade, DARPA’s investments in the advancement of Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology have helped enable the delivery of high power radio frequency (RF) signals at higher frequencies, bandwidths, and efficiencies. Today, however, a growing number of commercial and military components – from everyday smartphones to RF jammers – are generating a vast amount of RF signals, which is creating an increasingly crowded electromagnetic environment and a need to utilize higher operating frequencies – moving up to millimeter wave (mmW) frequencies
