The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has published an online catalog that contains software tool kits, technical sources and research data from many DARPA-backed computing projects, GCN reported Thursday.
GCN reports that DARPA wants computer scientists to design technology for potential government use by accessing the agency’s Open Catalog.
“Making our open source catalog available increases the number of experts who can help quickly develop relevant software for the government,” said Chris White, a program manager at DARPA, according to GCN.
“Our hope is that the computer science community will test and evaluate elements of our software and afterward adopt them as either standalone offerings or as components of their products,” White added.
The open-source portal offers information on software licenses, project contact details and code repositories, according to the article.
Featured programs include the agency-sponsored Active Authentication, Detection of Psychological Signals, Crowd Sourced Formal Verification and XDATA projects.
