By using crowdwourcing to guide design and manufacturing DARPA hopes to reduce development times and manufacturing costs
The DARPA competition aims to replace traditional development processes with crowdsourcing
The U.S. Defense Department think tank DARPA is offering up to US$30 million in prize money as part of a competition to introduce crowdsourcing to heavy weapons development and manufacturing. By adopting the”democratized” strategy of crowdsourcing for the development of the Fast, Adaptable Next-Generation armored vehicle (FANG), DARPA hopes to speed up the design and manufacturing of such weapons while reducing costs and introducing greater design flexibility.
