For the first phase of the program, LGS will develop algorithms and protocols to efficiently allocate dispersed resources for simultaneous users in a dynamic network environment. The aim is to reduce latency and bandwidth consumption and see significant gains in application performance utility.
“The possible applications for a fully developed dispersed computing approach are readily evident and game changing,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS. “This research program has the potential to give our warfighters a significant information advantage.”
DARPA selected LGS among 42 proposals for the dispersed computing program. The company will partner with BAE Systems and Princeton University on the program.
