The Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) announced an award to HRL Laboratories, LLC for the ASTIR program. The goal of ASTIR is to demonstrate a fundamentally new imaging radar architecture through basic research on “…innovative imaging radar architectures that can provide high frame-rate, three dimensional imaging of objects through adverse obscurants (fog, smoke, heavy rain, etc.) without requiring target or platform motion.”
HRL Laboratories, LLC announced today that it will be developing new materials for hypersonic vehicles under the Materials Development for Platforms (MDP) program through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). These new materials aim to reduce the weight and cost of vehicle aeroshells while withstanding the extreme environment encountered during hypersonic flight.
HRL’s scientists have successfully mapped HRL’s neuromorphic video object recognition algorithms developed previously under the DARPA Neovision2 program to a spike-domain neural computational framework under the DARPA SyNAPSE program.
In a step toward computers that mimic the parallel processing of complex biological brains, researchers from HRL Laboratories, LLC, and the University of Michigan have built a type of artificial synapse.
Researchers at HRL Laboratories, LLC, announced today they have developed the world’s lightest material with a density of 0.9 mg/cc, approximately one hundred times lighter than Styrofoam™.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, announced today it will continue groundbreaking work developing electronics that simulate the cognitive capabilities of biological intelligence in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics, or SyNAPSE program. Since October 2008, HRL has been leading an industry/academic team of experts in a fundamentally new approach …
