We're one step closer to our vision of a reusable spaceplane following ten successful firings of the AR-22 engine in 240 hours! The team of DARPA, @NASAStennis, @Boeing Space, and @Aerojet_Rocketdyne proved that the propulsion system is ready for our Experimental Spaceplane program with its goal of on-demand space launch with rapid turnaround between launches.

Throughout its history, DARPA has run a series of "x-plane" programs that have pushed the limits of aeronautics and given rise to powerful new flight capabilities and designs. At D60, DARPA's 60th anniversary symposium, a breakout session on x-planes will trace this evolution. Shown here, the X-29, the result of a joint effort by DARPA, the U.S. Air Force, NASA's Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility, the Air Force Flight Test Center, and the Grumman Corporation. The program was managed by the Air Force's Wright Laboratory, Wright Patterson Air Force Base. The forward-swept wing of the X-29 was one of the most unusual designs in aviation history. The fighter-sized technology demonstrator also explored the use of advanced composites in aircraft construction; variable-camber wing surfaces; a thin, supercritical airfoil; strakes; close-coupled canards; and a computerized fly-by-wire flight control system used to maintain control of the otherwise unstable aircraft.

Our Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) program aims to improve mobility, survivability, safety, and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling on armor. Recent demonstrations show progress on technologies for traveling quickly over varied terrain and improving situational awareness and ease of operation. Shown here, a morphing track-to-wheel technology developed by @CarnegieMellon's National Robotics Engineering Center that helps optimize mobility over different types of terrain -- wheels allow fast travel on hard surfaces, while tracks are better suited to soft ground. RWTs, as they're known, can change from wheel to track and back again within two seconds while the vehicle is in motion.

DARPA's Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) program aims to improve mobility, survivability, safety, and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling on armor. Recent demonstrations show progress on technologies for traveling quickly over varied terrain and improving situational awareness and ease of operation. For instance, the high-travel suspension shown here extends up to 6'! It allows the vehicle to handle steep slopes and grades by actively and independently adjusting suspension on each wheel. Check out a video of this technology and more on YouTube (DARPAtv) or on darpa.mil. These demonstrations feature technologies developed for DARPA by: 1) Carnegie Mellon University, National Robotics Engineering Center 2) Honeywell International 3) Pratt & Miller 4) QinetiQ 5) Raytheon BBN Technologies.

Our Make-It program is developing new software and hardware to speed the process of chemical synthesis and bring on-demand production of molecules to new locations and researchers. For the military, synthetic chemistry could yield novel propellants for spacecraft engines; new pharmaceuticals and medicines for troops in the field; lighter and longer-lasting batteries and fuel cells; advanced adhesives, coatings and paints; and less expensive explosives that are safer to handle. Researchers on Make-It have been successful in applying machine learning to the molecular synthesis process. Make-It software can recommend optimal synthesis pathways (i.e., the "recipe" to make a particular molecule), freeing actual chemists to focus on molecular discovery and innovation. Make-It hardware can then produce molecules on demand. The Make-It team includes researchers from the Massachusetts, Institute of Technology, SRI, Grzybowski Scientific Inventions, University of Glasgow, Purdue University, and Boston University.

It was three years ago today that a certain named DRC-Hubo won the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals. Hubo completed a course filled with tasks approximating things a robot might have to do in a disaster-response situation. The robot's design allowed it to roll or walk depending on terrain, and that feature allowed Hubo to navigate the course with the winning time and earn the prize of $2 million for Hubo's developers at KAIST.

A new from @NotImpossible features Johnny Matheny and Justin Sanchez. Johnny is a volunteer on our Revolutionizing Prosthetics program and controls one of the world's most advanced prosthetic limbs using signals from his brain. Justin leads the RP program and envisions a future in which neural interfaces make it possible for humans to have a much richer, more natural connection to technology. Give their story a listen today at the link in our profile! Johnny started the Starfish Prosthetics Foundation to help make such high quality prosthetics more affordable.

During the Vietnam War, the efficacy of nighttime aerial reconnaissance operations was diminished due to engine noise that provided the enemy with advanced warning of approaching aircraft. With an eye to making quiet aircraft that could better serve this reconnaissance mission, ARPA funded the Lockheed Missile and Space Company to develop a quiet, propeller-driven aircraft. This fast-paced program quickly yielded a successful prototype, the QT-2, which in 1968 was deployed and proven in combat. The program transitioned to the U.S. Army, which sponsored a limited production of an advanced version of the quiet aircraft, the YO-3A.

On May 19, 2018, @amhistorymuseum and @SI_Invention present Military Invention Day 2018, a celebration of defense-inspired innovation. This event -- free and open to the public -- will feature a few DARPA technologies including the Ghostrider , pictured here. Ghostrider participated in DARPA's Grand Challenge, a competition among autonomous vehicles. It is now part of the Smithsonian collection. (Image: Smithsonian; NMAH-2008-28)

Ready! Launch! Repeat! The DARPA , announced yesterday, aims to accelerate capabilities for industry to deliver flexible and responsive launch solutions—promoting rapid access to space. The Challenge, with its $10 million top prize, is designed to address emerging Department of Defense needs for flexible and responsive space launch. That means being ready to launch payloads to orbit on short notice, with no prior knowledge of the payload, destination, or launch site. And then, do it all over again, quickly. DARPA is hosting a Competitors Day on May 23 to provide more details.

April is Limb Loss Awareness Month, so take a minute to learn about the efforts of Claudia Mitchell, a @Marines veteran and upper-limb amputee, who is participating in a cutting-edge research project run by @ClevelandClinic to restore touch sensation to users of prosthetic limbs. Claudia, an Arkansas native, lost her arm to a motorcycle crash. She tried other prosthetic limbs, but without sensation even managing simple tasks was a challenge. Now that she has sensors in her prosthesis connected to the nerves and muscles in her chest, she can control her new arm naturally and feel when her arm touches things. The research was funded by DARPA's RE-NET and HAPTIX programs. (Image: Cleveland Clinic)

Coatings, thin films, and advanced surfaces contribute important properties to critical Department of Defense systems, devices, and technologies. However, the traditional processes for applying these coatings can be destructive to the substrate, requiring very high temperatures generated in a vacuum, and thus limiting applications. Our now-complete Local Control of Materials Synthesis (LoCo) program invested in new technologies for applying surface films and coatings. Program performer @SouthwestResearchInstitute developed new High-Power Impulse Plasma Source technology that can generate room-temperature plasmas for applying advanced coatings to materials without the need for vacuum chambers. Hi-PIPS, as it's known, can generate plasmas safe enough to touch, as shown here.

Our OFFSET program (it stands for OFFensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics) envisions future small-unit infantry forces using small unmanned aircraft systems and/or small unmanned ground systems in swarms of 250 robots or more for missions in complex urban environments. The program is structured into five "swarm sprints," each focused on a different technical challenge: Swarm Tactics, Swarm Autonomy, Human-Swarm Team, Virtual Environment, and Physical Testbed. We're now seeking concepts for our second sprint, this one focused on autonomy. Proposals are due on April 30, 2018. (Artist concept)
