DARPA’s mission is to make pivotal investments in breakthrough technologies for national security, thus catalyzing the development of capabilities that give the Nation new options for preventing and creating strategic surprise.
The Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is one of six technical offices at the agency. DSO identifies and pursues high-risk, high-payoff fundamental research initiatives across a broad spectrum of science and engineering disciplines including materials science, computing and autonomy, engineering design and manufacturing, physics, chemistry, mathematics and social science.
This presentation will give an overview of DARPA, working with DARPA and the Defense Sciences Office, and description of some of the current activities DSO’s program managers are working on.
