DARPA Wants Remote Control Pods To Hide UAVs On Seafloor By Paul Kruczkowski, editor
Calling all communications experts, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) issued a request for proposals on January 11 to support its Upward Falling Payload (UFP) program. The concept is to develop deployable, unmanned, distributed systems — like small UAVs — that lie in wait on the ocean floor in special containers, ready to launch and travel to the surface at a moment’s notice.
The proliferation of smart homes that include smart appliances and smart TVs demonstrate the evolution of automation moving from the industrial environment to the home environment. Since the onset of the smartphone and tablet production, consumers have enjoyed the convenience of doing tasks remotely or wirelessly.
