Yesterday DARPA entered its seventh decade of helping to define the technologies of our times. In the sixty years prior, DARPA became widely known as a driver of technological developments that have girded national security (think stealth, precision munitions, and unmanned aerial vehicles) and that sometimes have transformed daily civilian life (think the internet, miniaturized GPS, and emerging fleets of driverless vehicles). But while technology changes all the time, our agency logo has remained remarkably consistent (for better or worse). Here we present sixty years' worth of DARPA/ARPA logos.

Our new Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS) program turns to marine organisms to help monitor strategic waters such as straits and littoral regions. The program will explore how highly adapted sea life could help the U.S. military detect adversary activity over these large maritime areas.

Our "Sea Hunter" prototype vessel, created under the ACTUV program, has transitioned to @usnavyresearch for further development! Sea Hunter is a highly autonomous unmanned ship; the crew and wheelhouse seen here were only present for testing. ONR will now continue developing the prototype as the Medium Displacement Unmanned Surface Vehicle (MDUSV), the first of what could ultimately become an entirely new class of ocean-going vessel able to traverse thousands of kilometers over open seas for months at a time, without a single crew member aboard.

While the Grand and Urban Challenges really put things into gear, DARPA was already experimenting with self-driving technology with our Crusher unmanned ground combat vehicle, developed by Carnegie Mellon University's National Robotics Engineering Center circa 2005. Crusher could autonomously negotiate forests, deserts, mountains, wetlands, and other obstacle-riddled, off-road terrain. @carnegiemellon

Engineers from Cornell University and Honeywell Aerospace have demonstrated a new method for remotely vaporizing electronics into thin air, giving devices and their data the ability to vanish on command. The new method uses a silicon-dioxide microchip attached to a polycarbonate shell. Within the shell are microscopic cavities filled with rubidium and sodium biflouride, chemicals that can thermally react and decompose the microchip. The thermal reaction can be triggered remotely by using radio waves to open graphene-on-nitride valves that keep the chemicals sealed in the cavities. The work was funded in part by DARPA's VAPR program. (Image courtesy of @cornelluniversity) @honeywell_aero

Noise is an obstacle in the race to realize systems that can be used to develop quantum computing technologies. Among the approaches for quantum computing is the superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID), shown at the bottom of this @energy figure. Researchers have demonstrated that the main source of noise is magnetic defects on the SQUID, which are produced by molecular oxygen (O2) adsorbed on its surface. This artist's concept shows magnetic noise caused by O2. The twisted magnetic field lines are induced by harmful fluctuating magnetic spins (arrows) of O2 (spheres) on the surface of a SQUID quantum bit. The ability to develop SQUID-based quantum computers will require that stored magnetic data can survive for long times. This discovery of the origin of magnetic noise in SQUIDs--funded by DARPA, U.S. Department of Energy, Army Research Office, and others--will help inform design strategies for development of tunable superconducting qubits with long lifetimes.
