Night or day, rain or shine DARPA seeks multi-band, portable sensor to provide clear imagery to war fighters

Posted November 7, 2012 by

It is often the case with new military technologies that war fighters need to adjust to their equipment to access needed capabilities. As missions shift, however, and warfighters are required to work in smaller teams and access more remote locations, it is technology that must adapt if it is to remain useful. Desirable features for…
