Roboticists around the world are invited to participate in a real-world design challenge, showcasing your innovation in robotics. At the same time, you'll be competing for a $100,000 prize, a subcontract with a manufacturer to produce a limited number of systems, and an invitation to demonstrate the winning design solution in an exclusive operational military demonstration.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Naval Systems Warfare Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) recently announced UAVForge, a global crowdsourcing competition to design, build and fly a novel, small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
Initial designs are due in late Fall 2011, and flyoff winner selection is planned for Spring 2012.
Specific technical and competition guidelines may be found at www.uavforge.net<http://www.uavforge.net>.
