DARPA’s Liberty Lifter concept is a modern spin on a Soviet seaplane
The aircraft would be able to transport people and cargo low over the water, and then deliver them quickly to a beach.
DARPA quietly tested a hypersonic weapon last month
A hypersonic projectile travels at least five times the speed of sound. Here's what we know about the recent test.
Robotic cartographers created these colorful cave maps
Two new videos from the DARPA Subterranean Challenge reveal underground spaces—as charted by robots.
DARPA wants Space-BACN so satellite communication sizzles
The program is pronounced "space bacon" and is focused on building resiliency in case satellites ever get fried.
Military medics and mechanics may soon have access to a virtual help desk through AMIGOS
AMIGOS, a new DARPA-funded program, aims to use AI and augmented reality to build real-time training manuals.
DARPA’s solution to the military’s plastic trash problem? Eat it.
Turning an empty water bottle into new material, like protein powder or gun lubricant, could help create a useful purpose for trash.
Watch a C-130 cargo plane grab a drone out of the sky
Catching a drone with a large aircraft can help the military reuse these flying robots—and perhaps even someday deploy swarms of them.
These robots are DARPA’s hope for the future of cave warfare—or disaster relief
Bots like these could fight in the next wars or help rescue people in challenging and dangerous underground environments.
Why DARPA’s new hypersonic weapon could pack such a devastating punch
Here's how hypersonics—objects that travel faster than Mach 5—compare to traditional cruise missiles and ICBMs.
This drone can detect human screams. What could go wrong?
The research is intended for search and rescue applications. But tech like this has potential for abuse.
