Uncle Sam Wants Mobile Devs

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched a new program to create applications that can coordinate intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) programs. Many of these applications rely on increasingly complex sensors created for DARPA’s Adaptable Sensor System (ADAPT) program. “The end vision for ADAPT is warfighter access to a library of ever-expanding ISR apps that run on a common hardware model using a common operating system – just like smartphones and apps in the commercial market today,” said DARPA’s Mark Rich.

Rich added, “[That is why we are] looking to tap the smartphone dev community with experience in application creation. From novel approaches to networked connectivity, accelerometer use, user interfaces and others, DARPA hopes to revolutionize sensors built on smartphone-like technology.”
