Strategic Technologies (STO) OFFICE-WIDE
DARPA is seeking innovative ideas and disruptive technologies that provide the U.S. military significant capability improvement to dominate across all scales of conflict intensity. These span highly contested force-on-force conflicts to ambiguous, complex 'Gray Zone' conflicts. Technologies should support conflicts that may take place in a range of environments from austere, remote locations to dense megacities.

Adapting Cross-Domain Kill-webs (ACK)
The goal of the Adapting Cross-domain Kill-webs (ACK) program is to develop an overall framework, algorithms, and software prototypes for decentralized construction and adaption of multi-domain (space, air, land, surface, subsurface, cyber) kill webs â€“ i.e. software decision aids to coordinate the selection of the specific sensors, effectors, and support elements across domains to form kill webs delivering desired effects on targets.
