The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected Northrop Grumman for the Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS) programme under which the company will develop biological sensing hardware using underwater biological organisms to detect underwater threats.
“The detection, classification and tracking of undersea objects is a critical military capability and we are excited to work with DARPA to develop this next generation approach,” Monch reported quoting Mike Meaney, Northrop Grumman Vice President, Advanced Missions as saying Friday.
The company will develop the hardware with increased sensitivity for certain sensor modalities, and greater range. Artificial intelligence will be applied to observe patterns in the marine environment to help classify targets.
Northrop Grumman is partnered with Coda Octopus, Duke University, University of Maryland, Baltimore County and the University of Memphis.
Upgraded version Su-25 fighter, Su-25SM3 will be equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled target acquisition and sighting system to allow pilots to strike designated targets without their participation.

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is presently working on an advanced version of its first-generation, battery-powered, miniature chip-scale atomic clock (CSAC) with 1000x performance improvements for Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) applications. DARPAs Atomic Clock with Enhanced Stability (ACES) program aims to build the next-generation atomic clock owing to the limitations of the now commercially available CSACs
Northrop Grumman has demonstrated a Gallium Nitride (GaN)- based Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) to the US Army and will deliver its final LTAMDS proposal to the Army in the coming weeks for evaluation. The companys gallium nitride (GaN)-based design leverages advanced, in-production and fielded technologies from its active electronically scanned array (AESA) portfolio
Northrop Grumman has won a $65 million contract for long-lead components for the manufacture and delivery of three low-rate initial production Lot 5 MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft meant for US Navy and government of Australia. In addition, this contract provides equipment and associated materials for three ground stations for US Navy and government of Australia, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday
