Request for Information pursues state-of-the-art technologies for collecting and characterizing 3D mapping and surveying data. DARPA is seeking information on state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies for advanced mapping and surveying in support of the agency’s Subterranean (SubT) Challenge. Georeferenced data — geographic coordinates tied to a map or image — could significantly improve the speed and accuracy of warfighters in time-sensitive... read more

DARPA Program Addresses Degraded Visibility for Helicopters

Degraded visibility — which encompasses diverse environmental conditions including severe weather, dust kicked up during takeoff and landing, and poor visual contrast among different parts of terrain — often puts both the safety and effectiveness of tactical helicopter operations at risk. Current sensor systems that can provide the necessary visualization through obscurants struggle with latency and are too large, heavy... read more
