Cyber physical systems (CPS) are instrumental to current and future Department of Defense (DoD) mission needs – unmanned vehicles, weapon systems, and mission platforms are all examples of military-relevant CPS. These systems and platforms integrate cyber and physical subsystems, and the enormous complexity of the resulting CPS has made their engineering design a daunting challenge. An immediate consequence of this complexity is development cycles with prolonged timelines that challenge DoD’s ability to counter emerging threats.
The SoSITE program aims to develop system of systems architectures to maintain U.S. air superiority in contested environments.
The Understanding Group Biases (UGB) program seeks to develop and prove out capabilities that can radically enhance the scale, speed, and scope of automated, ethnographic-like methods for capturing group biases and cultural models from increasingly available large digital datasets.
Program Manager
Dr. Eric Van Gieson joined DARPA as a Program Manager in August 2017 with the goal of using host-based methods to mitigate the impacts of emerging disease threats. He intends to explore epigenetic and real-time monitoring approaches that can dynamically guide healthcare decisions and therapy, and new methods of increasing patient survival in austere environments using intelligent systems partnered with local care providers.
Program Manager
Dr. George Nowak joined DARPA in August 2017 as a program manager in the Strategic Technology Office (STO). Dr. Nowak’s current focus is on developing a system-of-systems architecture that adapts advanced technologies to enhance capabilities of ground forces. Additionally, his research interests include photonic devices and systems, and optical communications.
