DARPA is building an unmanned aerial vehicle sensor to help track and track targets, and that sensor could help the U.S. military, defense analysts said.
The Advanced Defense Technology program office in Arlington, Virginia, is working on an autonomous vehicle sensor that will be able to scan objects with radar and identify them with a high degree of accuracy, according to a DARPA document obtained by The Associated Press.
The program office said it is working with aerospace industry partners and DARPA to develop the sensor.
DARPA announced in March it was building a drone sensor to improve the precision of surveillance in areas where manned drones are unable to make an accurate search.
DARPM is the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a research and development arm of the Department of Defense.
DARAPA is also building a high performance radar sensor.
The sensor could be used in unmanned aircraft to detect objects moving across the surface of a battlefield, according the DARPA announcement.
DARPROTECTOR, a program office of DARPA, is an arm of DARPM.
DARP is an autonomous technology program that has helped the U to advance in areas ranging from space exploration to robotics and cybersecurity.
