The Defense Advanced Research Projet Agency (DARPA) has announced a new challenge, called UAVforge, which aims to improve the capabilities of small UAVs through crowdsourcing. The goal is to build and test a user-intuitive, backpack-portable UAV that can quietly fly in and out of critical environments to conduct sustained surveillance for up to three hours. There is a prize involved. DARPA and Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) call on innovators of every kind; scientists, engineers, citizen scientists and dreamers to collaborate on the UAVForge Challenge and win $100,000 USD. DARPA has also released a YouTube video in connection with this initiative.
