... and emergent information-enabled technologies and application domains (e.g., social science; human, social, cultural, and behavioral modeling; social networking and crowd-based development paradigms; natural-language processing, knowledge management, and machine learning and reasoning; medical/ biological informatics; and information assurance and cyber-security)

... DARPA also supports R&D on technology useful to the intelligence community, although it is not the only source of technology for that community.3 C.2  SERVICE-SPECIFIC RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT In addition to the DOD-wide R&D supported by DARPA, the military services support extramural R&D and conduct in-house R&D on technologies relevant to their service needs. The Army Research Office, the Office of Naval Research, and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research support extramural work, while the Naval Research Laboratory, the Army Research Laboratory, and the Air Force Research Laboratory are responsible for in-house R&D.

... The Crosshairs program seeks to develop a vehicle mounted threat detection and countermeasure system that will detect, locate, and engage shooters, as well as defeat a variety of threats including bullets, rocket propelled grenades, anti-tank guided missiles, and direct fired mortars, while station ary and moving. Threat identification and localization will be accomplished in sufficient time to enable both automatic and man-in-the-loop responses.

... Success in this effort will result in a composite software/human-in the-loop system capable of high-fidelity detection with extremely low false alarm rates without adding to already significant warfighter combat loads.

... One aerial platform without the HPM source shall be developed for a flight test to demonstrate delivery, controllability, and fusing. The remaining four aerial platforms with the integrated HPM source shall be developed for flight testing, demonstration, and HPM effects tests.

... Possible top ics include, but are not limited to, advances in or alternatives to quantum tomography; methods for extracting fidelity of gate or computation success; and methods or proce dures for verifying complex quantum computations that cannot be classically simulated.
