DARPA wants info about war ideas

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency officials want ideas on using computational techniques to disrupt enemy leaders' decision-making processes.

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."
