DARPA Adds Biological, Defense, Info Research in Web Catalog; Chris White Comments

DARPAThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has expanded its research web portal to include additional peer-reviewed publications, other research materials and open source software from three DARPA offices.

Research from the Biological Technologies Office, Defense Sciences Office and Information Innovation Office are now available through the DARPA Open Catalog as part of continued efforts to enable public access to such material, the agency said Aug. 29.

“The launch of the Open Catalog has been quite successful, both in terms of quickly sharing a lot of material and getting enthusiastic buy-in from key DARPA audiences,” said Chris White, a program manager at DARPA.

“[We] hope to accelerate continued breakthroughs in key technical areas.”

The portal was launched in February to initially include software toolkits and other technical resources and has been named one of the Defense Department‘s flagship projects supporting the Open Government Plan, the report said.

The added materials include research in big data, cyber, language translation and prosthetics.

DARPA said it also modified the user interface with search and other indexing capabilities.
