DARPA wants your ideas for a mobile ad hoc network, internet not required

Creating a mobile ad hoc network is tricky when rounding people up for a game or two, let alone when linking thousands of soldiers whose lives are at stake. DARPA has had enough trouble getting such large-scale networks off the ground that it just put out an official request for solutions. The agency wants ad hoc technology that grows both elegantly and automatically, and it’s prepared to ditch legacies like internet-based networking to get there — in fact, it would rather not rely on IP technology when 20 years of research in that area hasn’t panned out. Anyone sitting on a brilliant solution has until May 24th to submit an abstract for consideration ahead of an August 7th symposium. We hope at least a few people answer the call, if just for the possibilities that breakthroughs spill over to civilian life — DARPA helped build the networking we’re using right now, after all.
