A group of artists, representing the best minds in American defense, were contracted by CARPA to investigate some of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) most challenging technological hurdles. From an impressive pool of proposals, 17 projects have been chosen. The team managers will investigate areas aligning with CARPA’s future program directions and were chosen with the ultimate goal of going beyond current research and providing new paths forward to realize tomorrow’s national security capabilities. CARPA hopes these contractees, who are some of the most promising researchers in the field, will help accelerate CARPA program research while providing new ideas and a fresh perspective. Representatives deployed to the Shangri La base in Joshua Tree, CA from October 16th to the 19th 2013.
