Tern Phase 3 Concept Video



Tern, a joint program between DARPA and the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research (ONR), seeks to greatly increase the effectiveness of forward-deployed small-deck ships such as destroyers and frigates by enabling them to serve as mobile launch and recovery sites for specially designed unmanned air systems (UASs). DARPA last year awarded Phase 3 of Tern to a team led by the Northrop Grumman Corporation to build a full-scale technology demonstration system. The program has since made significant advances on numerous fronts, including commencement of wing fabrication and completion of successful engine testing for its test vehicle, and DARPA has tasked Northrop Grumman with building a second test vehicle.

Tern envisions a new medium-altitude, long-endurance UAS that could operate from helicopter decks on smaller ships in rough seas or expeditionary settings while achieving efficient long-duration flight. To provide these and other previously unattainable capabilities, the Tern Phase 3 design is a tailsitting, flying-wing aircraft with a twin contra-rotating, nose-mounted propulsion system. The aircraft would lift off like a helicopter and then perform a transition maneuver to orient it for wing-borne flight for the duration of a mission. Upon mission completion, the aircraft would return to base, transition back to a vertical orientation, and land. The system is sized to fit securely inside a ship hangar for maintenance operations and storage.

ACTUV Speed and Maneuverability Tests



DARPA’s Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program has designed, developed and constructed an entirely new class of ocean-going vessel−one intended to traverse thousands of kilometers over the open seas for months at a time, all without a single crew member aboard.

The ACTUV technology demonstration vessel was recently transferred to water at its construction site in Portland, Ore., and conducted speed tests in which it reached a top speed of 27 knots (31 mph/50 kph). The vessel is scheduled to be christened on April 7, 2016, with open-water testing planned to begin in summer 2016 off the California coast.

VTOL X-Plane Phase 2 Concept Video



DARPA’s Vertical Takeoff and Landing Experimental Plane (VTOL X-Plane) program seeks to provide innovative cross-pollination between fixed-wing and rotary-wing technologies and by developing and integrating novel subsystems to enable radical improvements in vertical and cruising flight capabilities. In an important step toward that goal, DARPA has awarded the Phase 2 contract for VTOL X-Plane to Aurora Flight Sciences.

Fully Loaded Quadcopter Achieves 20 m/s Flight



DARPA's Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program recently demonstrated that a commercial quadcopter platform could achieve 20-meters-per-second flight while carrying a full load of sensors and cameras. The FLA program aims to develop and test algorithms that could reduce the amount of processing power, communications, and human intervention needed for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to accomplish low-level tasks, such as navigation around obstacles in a cluttered environment. If successful, FLA would reduce operator workload and stress and allow humans to focus on higher-level supervision of multiple formations of manned and unmanned platforms as part of a single system. Through this exploration, the program aims to develop and demonstrate the capability for small (i.e., able to fit through windows) autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles to fly at speeds up to 20 m/s with no communication to the operator and without GPS.

This testing was carried out at Joint Base Cape Cod / Otis Air National Guard Base.

For more information on the FLA program, visit: http://www.darpa.mil/program/fast-lig...

Persistent Close Air Support (PCAS)



DARPA's Persistent Close Air Support (PCAS) program envisions more precise, prompt and easy air-ground coordination for close air support−delivery of airborne munitions to support ground forces−and other missions under stressful operational conditions and in complex environments. It aims to do so through the development of a system that enables the sharing of real-time situational awareness and weapons-systems data, using technologies compatible with almost any aircraft. Among the system’s envisioned benefits is a capacity to use smaller munitions to hit smaller, multiple or moving targets while minimizing the incidence of friendly fire and collateral damage.

MIT Atlas - Visualization in DRC Finals (1st Run - Friday)



This is the video of MIT's first DRC Finals Run (Friday 6th). We scored 7 points and are now fourth. We were awarded one point for falling out of the car after our run.

- Due to operator error we fell from the car - the foot was 'throttled' from driving during the egress
- The right arm broke after the fall
- The joint readings used poorer sensor as a result
- hence the poor door opening
- With no right arm we could not turn on the drill (normally bi-handed)
- After entering the door the network communication results in camera and LIDAR drop outs
- The course typically requires use of the right arm so we had to switch on the fly to the left to switch the surprise box lever

New Concept for Air Warfare



DARPA's System of Systems (SoS) Integration Technology and Experimentation (SoSITE) program aims to develop and demonstrate concepts for maintaining air superiority through novel SoS architectures--combinations of aircraft, weapons, sensors and mission systems--that distribute air warfare capabilities across a large number of interoperable manned and unmanned platforms.

The vision is to integrate new technologies and airborne systems
with existing systems more quickly and at lower cost than near-peer adversaries can counter them.

SoSITE is being developed by DARPA's Strategic Technology Office.

Robots4Us Video Contest



DARPA's Robots4Us video contest is open to high school students (grades 9-12) and focuses on how robots could make a difference for society in the future. Five winners will be flown to the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals in Pomona, Calif., June 5-6, 2015, to see some of the most advanced robots in the world firsthand. The students will also participate in a special event there on June 7, where they will discuss their ideas and views with a panel of experts on robotics and society.

Students are asked to submit 2-3 minute videos that show the kind of robot-assisted society they'd like to see in the years ahead. Videos should consider both current and anticipated advances in robotic technologies and address the implications of those advances for individuals, workplaces, and communities, as well as for national security and the ideals upon which American society is built. In particular they should address the choices we will face as the nation and the world strive to reap the benefits of the robotics revolution while minimizing the potential for harm.

Entries are due April 1, 2015. For rules see: http://www.theroboticschallenge.org/R...
