U.S. Government Agency Research and Development
ARC's technologies were initially developed under U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsorship, leveraging state-of-the-art internet-of-things (IoT) and machine learning (ML) technologies to transform weapons into information nodes or ‘sensors’ and equip ground leadership with advanced, real-time decision support. ARC has since won a variety of research awards and inspired numerous requirements in the U.S. National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
