DARPA Issues RFI on Processing Models for Large-Scale Computer Simulations

DARPAThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking ideas from the public on technologies that boost processing power to support computer simulations used in scientific research and development activities.

DARPA said Thursday the Analog and Continuous-variable Co-processors for Efficient Scientific Simulation request for information is looking for processing paradigms for large-scale simulations in design, prediction and discovery.

“[We are] interested in information on all approaches, analog, digital or hybrid ones, that have the potential to revolutionize how we perform scientific simulations,” said Vincent Tang, program manager in DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office.

The agency noted that analog approaches can perform better than digital approaches in some processes when the former are scaled for modern computer architectures.

DARPA will accept responses to the RFI through April 14.

Vice Adm. Matthew Kohler, the top information warfare officer at the U.S. Navy, told C4ISRNET in an interview published Monday that the service considers information warfare as decisive both in daily operations and high-end kinetic fight. “In information warfare, while the rest of the warfare areas are involved in the high-end conflict [eventually], we consider the high-end conflict now. Constant contact with the enemy in terms of cybersecurity, being able to operate within the [electromagnetic spectrum], all of those. We consider ourselves in contact with the adversary now,” Kohler said.
