Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency officials want ideas on
using computational techniques to disrupt enemy leaders'
DARPA officials want papers on the topic by Dec. 10. They will choose
the best ones and ask the authors attend a meeting in late January
2005, according to a Nov. 10 notice on the Government Business
Opportunities Web site.
Military officials' growing emphasis on information warfare
precipitated the request. Information warfare involves the use of
applications, radio frequencies and psychological means to dissuade
and deter U.S. enemies.
"The enemy command organization's structure and processes are often
little known to the friendly forces and difficult to observe," DARPA's
notice states. "Such organizations evolve and change rapidly,
especially during a military operation, due in part to physical
attrition as well as to other factors."
