The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has selected Epirus to develop software algorithms, source code and artificial intelligence models that can help operators detect electromagnetic threats in a matter of minutes.
Epirus said Friday it will work with Georgia Tech Research Corp. on three phases under DARPA’s Waveform Agile Radio-frequency Directed Energy Rapid Assessment and Numerical Generation of Electromagnetic Response or WARDEN RANGER project.
The effort aims to produce AI-based and mathematical algorithms that can rapidly compute the effect of EM propagation.
The proposed WARDEN RANGER model is intended to run on commercial computers for wider end-user accessibility. The model is also planned to use a modular structure to accommodate scalability.
In addition, the project’s resulting technology is meant to support commercial applications in the areas of autonomy, internet of things, edge computing and 5G/6G data transmission. DARPA will use Epirus’ findings to create a mechanism that facilitates information sharing for government and commercial technology transition.
