HRL Laboratories has received a DARPA award to significantly advance the technology and manufacturing readiness levels of its leading-edge T3 GaN technology. Integrated circuits made by layering GaN onto silicon carbide substrate wafers offer the best combination of efficiency, output power, and survivability among radio frequency and millimeter-wave semiconductor technologies.
A new program being developed by computer scientists at HRL Laboratories, LLC, is a cyber-defense system that will exploit a social engineering attacker’s methods by drawing them in with automated responses to their behavior.
HRL Laboratories publish the first study using closed-loop slow-wave transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) of the brain during sleep to increase human subjects’ ability to generalize experience in a target detection task, improving overnight performance change for novel situations by about 48%.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, will leverage electronic brain-cell technology for a new computer architecture that promises more compact, energy-efficient, and capable systems. The program is part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program Foundations Required for Novel Compute (FRANC).
HRL Laboratories, LLC, joins DARPA’s Lifelong Learning Machines (L2M) program to develop a breakthrough in machine-learning architectures for autonomous systems that will continually improve performance and update their knowledge based on experience, without human supervision.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, will join the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) in its Autonomy Assurance (AA) program with the Expressive Assurance Case Toolkit (ExACT), a set of algorithmic tools that will mathematically verify that the autonomous driving system’s algorithms are correct and safe.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has received an award from the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) to develop the next generation of gallium nitride (GaN) transistors with dramatically improved linearity and noise figure at reduced power consumption for use in electronic devices that manage the electromagnetic spectrum from radio communications to radar.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has developed a miniaturized, low-power radar array that potentially can see weapons or explosives concealed on a person at tactically safe distances.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has received an award to participate in project AMEBA, the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) initiative to develop low-frequency radio transmission antennas that are vastly more compact and efficient than the massive existing arrays used to communicate in traditionally radio-denied conditions, such as with submerged submarines.
HRL researchers have developed a reversible alkali atom source that runs at low power and low voltage, which is beneficial in applications such as smaller, more efficient, and ultimately portable atomic clocks that use cold atoms.
