Competitors from around the world came together this month for the preliminary round of DARPA’s Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2) at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, MD. This was the first event of the three-year long tournament designed to generate new wireless paradigms and access strategies in which radio networks enhanced with artificial intelligence (AI) will autonomously collaborate and reason about how to share the increasingly congested electromagnetic (EM) spectrum.

The rise of network-connected systems that are becoming embedded seemingly everywhere–from industrial control systems to aircraft avionics–is opening up a host of rich technical capabilities in deployed systems. Even so, as the collective technology project underlying this massive deployment of connectivity unfolds, more consumer, industrial, and military players are turning to inexpensive, commodity off-the-shelf (COTS) devices with general-purpose designs applicable for a range of functionalities and deployment options. While less costly and more flexible, commodity components are inherently less secure than the single-purpose, custom devices they are replacing.

DARPA will hold the world’s first all-computer Capture the Flag tournament live on stage (co-located with the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas) where automated systems may take the first steps toward a defensible, connected future. Seven teams from across the United States qualified to compete in the Final Event. For more information, please visit: http://www.cybergrandchallenge.com.

In 2014, DARPA launched the Cyber Grand Challenge (CGC) to develop intelligent systems that might someday take over the painstaking and time-consuming work of searching through billions of lines of software code for vulnerabilities or intrusions. The Pittsburgh-based team ForAllSecure built Mayhem, which took first place in the CGC in August 2016. The Mayhem Cyber Reasoning System is now on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. The exhibit will run through September 17, 2017.

Smithsonian National Museum of American History
On May 20, DARPA is taking part in Military Invention Day at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, an event produced by the Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. The event will showcase examples of today’s leading-edge military inventions alongside historical technologies from the Museum’s collections.
