JUMP 2.0, a consortium of industrial participants in cooperation with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, solicited white papers from U.S. universities for collaborative, multidisciplinary, multi-university research in selected areas of principal interest.
The goal of this collaborative effort between the Department of Defense and the industrial participants is to substantially increase the performance, efficiency, and capabilities of broad classes of electronics systems for both commercial and military applications. These research and development efforts should benefit both the defense and industrial sectors by providing the Department of Defense with an unmatched technological edge in advanced radar, communications, and weapons systems, and provide the U.S. economy with unique information technology and processing capabilities critical to commercial competitiveness and future economic growth.
