PARC Gets Up To $2 Million from DARPA to Develop Vanishing Electronics

PARC announced it has signed an up to $2 million contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop and demonstrate PARC's disappearing electronics platform (called DUST), with intriguing implications for a variety of military, ecological, and commercial interests. DUST, or Disintegration Upon Stress-Release Trigger, is a technology that allows electronic devices using full-performance microchips to be disintegrated on command, leaving only tiny fragments that are invisible to the human eye. The DUST technology builds on PARC's cutting-edge capabilities in advanced manufacturing, novel electronics, and smart devices. DARPA's goal in its Vanishing Programmable Resources (VAPR) program is to demonstrate electronic systems capable of physically disappearing in a controlled, trigger-able manner. These transient electronics should have performance comparable to commercial-off-the-shelf electronics, but with limited device persistence that can be programmed, adjusted in real time, triggered, and/or be sensitive to the deployment environment. Sophisticated electronics can be made at low cost and are increasingly pervasive throughout the battlefield. Large numbers can be widely proliferated and used for applications such as distributed remote sensing and communications. However, it is nearly impossible to track and recover every device, resulting in unintended accumulation in the environment, potential unauthorized use, and compromise of intellectual property and technological advantage. In addition to military applications, PARC is exploring a wide range of commercial and scientific uses for the DUST technology. One possibility is to help protect personal information such as laptops, mobile phones, e-wallets, and wearables - giving consumers and enterprises peace of mind that their data won't be copied or exploited. The movie industry could also potentially use PARC's DUST technology to protect highly valuable content it produces and distributes every year. In the world of environmental science, DUST sensors could be distributed in large numbers to help measure wide-area phenomenon like weather patterns for hurricane prediction or subtle vibrations that precede earthquakes, and then be effectively removed from the environment with no residual footprint.
