Dan Javorsek: DARPA Must Apply ‘Operational Understanding’ in Emerging Tech Dev’t

Jeff Brody

Lt. Col. Dan Javorsek, program manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Strategic Technology Office, said at a Noblis event that DARPA needs to incorporate operational understanding in technology development, Fedscoop reported Thursday. He noted that the agency must work on improving its application of emerging technologies into operational capabilities for future warfighting activities.

According to Javorsek, new technologies must be trustworthy enough to allow room for improvement and development. Failure will inevitably result from technologies being subject to strict standards, he added. “The challenge is how do we look at these new algorithmic technologies that do not have the explainability that we are traditionally used to,” said Javorsek.
