The rapid evolution of small unmanned air system (sUAS) technologies is fueling the exponential growth of the commercial drone sector, creating new asymmetric threats for warfighters. DARPA’s Mobile Force Protection (MFP) program seeks to develop an integrated system capable of defeating self-guided sUAS (i.e., those that do not rely on a radio or GPS receiver for their operation) attacking a high-value convoy on the move, and recently awarded Phase 1 agreements to start research.

The Information Innovation Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Symbiotic Design for Cyber Physical Systems program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of the program is to develop AI-based approaches to enable correct-by-construction design of military-relevant, cyber-physical systems (CPS), in order to reduce the time from their inception to deployment from years to months, and enhance innovation in design. These approaches would complement and augment existing model-based design technologies, and enable humans and computers to collaborate on correct-by-construction design of CPS.
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 PAPPA topic will explore tradeoffs between programming productivity, solution generality, and scalability to enable scientists and domain experts with no understanding of parallel programming and hardware architectures to create highly efficient performance portable programs. The goal of PAPPA is to explore the creation of compiler technology that improves the programming productivity of massively parallel and heterogeneous processing systems with 1,000,000 way parallelism by 10,000X.
