The Department of Defense (DOD) is looking to mobile application development to improve its development of sensors for drones and other military surveillance, reconnaissance, and intelligence vehicles.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the DOD's research arm, is seeking smartphone app developers for its Adaptable Sensor System (ADAPT) program, according to a statement. The program uses a commercial development model to facilitate rapid delivery and configuration of sensor systems, which typically take three to eight years to develop, the agency said.
