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.

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.

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.

DARPA-funded researchers at @WakeHealth and @USCViterbi published this week in the Journal of Neural Engineering that they have demonstrated the first successful implementation in humans of a proof-of-concept system for restoring memory function by facilitating memory encoding using the patient's own neural codes. Volunteers in the study demonstrated up to 37 percent improvement in short-term, working memory over baseline levels. The work was supported by DARPA's Restoring Active Memory program and brings DARPA closer to its goal of developing an implantable, closed-loop memory prosthesis to help military personnel overcome some of the worst effects of brain injury and illness. Shown in this figure: a conceptual model of the hippocampal memory prosthesis. (DARPA image via Wake Forest Baptist Health)

For many years beginning in 1994, DARPA provided substantial funding in the then emergent arena of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMs). With lineage in microelectronics technology, MEMs researchers cleverly adapted standard semiconductor-fabrication methods to fabricate miniature mechanical structures such as flexible membranes, cantilevers, and even trains of interdigitated gears, and integrated these with electronics to create a menagerie of MEM systems. Among the target deliverables for the DoD were inertial navigation devices for smartening up weapons and tracking soldiers, miniaturized "laboratories on a chip" for such uses as detecting biological weapons in the field, and optical switches and displays. DARPA's patient support is widely credited with adding consequential momentum to the field of MEMs, which since has blossomed into a multi-billion dollar market in the military and civilian sectors. Shown here for scale, a spider mite approaching a gear chain. (Image courtesy of Sandia National Laboratories, SUMMiT(tm) Technologies, www.sandia.gov/mstc, @SandiaLabs)

Just in case you thought for a second that this picture shows a very large , rest assured that it's simply the CBBC's Andy Torbet demonstrating DARPA's biomimetic Z-Man climbing technology, developed by Draper Laboratory. Andy is shown here climbing the side of the EF Education First building in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The technology he's using was inspired by the pads on a gecko's feet. The Z-Man paddles combine pistons, suction cups, and a gecko skin-like surface that adheres to glass and other surfaces. With this tool, Andy was able to climb the building in 45 minutes. A gecko would have beat him handily -- clocking in at 52 seconds to cover the same distance -- but everything in moderation...
