DARPA will create a helmet to control drones using brain signals

The memorial institute of Battel will take part in the program - its scientists will be engaged in the creation of a neural interface.

with minimal invasive intervention. The system must include an external transceiver with electromagnetic nanotransducers that will read the neural signals and convert them to electromagnetic.

The project will include engineers from Carnegie Mellon, Rice and John Hopkins universities, as well as PARC.

DARPA is preparing for a future in which the combinationunmanned systems, artificial intelligence and cyber operations can lead to such rapid conflicts in which human reaction will not be enough with existing technologies. By creating an accessible brain-computer interface that does not require surgery, DARPA gives commanders the opportunity to continue to actively participate in dynamic operations unfolding at high speeds.


Earlier it was reported that DARPA, together with the military company Sikorsky, will test the new autopilot system on the cult F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter.
