So the Fun begins !

DARPA whats to Seek better Ways of Creating and Routing places for Underground Bases, I would Assume .

D.U.M.B.S. ?

They are Seeking Out other Corporations to Help with a Contest Challenge
The Prize $2 million
I
s this Disguised as a 2 million dollar contest ?

So this is intersting .. too Me

Thought about this ??

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has announced its latest challenge, called the Subterranean or "SubT" Challenge. The global competition asks entrants to develop systems that can help humans navigate, map and search in underground locations that are normally too perilous to visit. "One of the main limitations facing war fighters and emergency responders in subterranean environments is a lack of situational awareness; we often don't know what lies beneath us," Timothy Chung, program manager in DARPA's Tactical Technology Office (TTO), said in a statement. "The DARPA Subterranean Challenge aims to provide previously unimaginable situational awareness capabilities for operations undergroun



Groups all around the world will compete to solve problems that help people navigate in unknown, treacherous subterranean conditions, where time is of the essence, according to the statement.

sounds like doom is coming
And they want to indirectly save some people, without give away the "surprise"

Maybe this has to do with Moon or Mars bases, long term.

I swear I just read an article that someone was working with small drones and lidar to do cave mapping.

Found it.link

I was wondering the same thing. What kind of drilling/tunneling device would work up there?
Has anyone drilled core samples or anything like that?

I think that's the goal of the challenge. No core samples from any depth.

Very interesting challenge. The unknown is scary for sure but I suspect as in most of their handywork it is more about wars than anything else.

PLEASE keep an eye on this and let us stay informed.

Ummm...cool...I had a brain fart after I read your OP...

Suppose one were to say flood the atmosphere of the underground unknown...with particulates that react to penetrating energies...thus allowing GPR (ground penetrating radar) or something similar to map these structures...

You could send in the flying/crawling/swimming spiderbot swarm as well...have those creepy crawlies map in real time and use themselves to relay the real time signal to the operator...

There you go DARPA...problem solved...NEXT...

I imagine it would be rather difficult to attempt core sampling in a low gravity environment. Let alone how expensive/ddifficult it is to drop equipment onto the surface.

But I would volunteer in a heartbeat!

Isn't that similar to the equipment they used in Giza to find that "chamber" ?

Ummm...I have no idea what they used...I'll have to research it and find out...
I was just musing about it after I read the OP...

I believe they mapped particles entering the earths atmosphere to look for hidden chambers in one of the pyramids. It was discussed on here, but my memory of it is vague at best...

If they were trying to map underground chambers quickly I’d have thought some kind of sonar system would work best. Either way I’m sure the technology is available in some form or other. What I find curious is why they (DARPA) are effectively contracting it out?

There are underground cave systems across the world that remain unexplored.

www.arounddeglobe.com...

en.wikipedia.org...

Because of the dangers of sudden storm surges, the water level can rise rapidly, cutting off air supplies and generating lethal currents.

You would want a combined system; lidar for air, and sonar for water. But it would need some way of stabilizing itself like a satellite (flywheels) while being able to anchor itself in case of falling into water. If humans were to do this task, they would have a buddy system. Then you have to get the data back. Radio waves don't travel through salt water, and light doesn't travel far through murky water. Do you have dozens of small autonomous units communicating by laser and sending data back to a mothership ROV with a fibre-optic tether to a surface vesssel. Smaller ROV's on their own fibre-optic tethers for the tighter areas?

In the USA alone, there are 10,000 unmapped caves. Perhaps they are looking for the ant people known to the Indian tribes?

Underground drones. Why not?
Hopefully Macenroe82 will be aware of the RFP.



Now that the design is patented, I can share this with you, by showing you the very first flight of a drone descending a drop raise, into an open stope, then flying back out the way it came.

Great way to identify the competition.

Primed for absorption into the Plan or to eliminate if unreliable/a hindrance to said Plan.



Anyone else think of Phil Schneider reading this?

Prior to GPS and other radio based schemes, navigation was done by dead reckoning using inertial navigation. If you have an integrated navigation system in your car, they generally fallback to inertial navigation under loss of signal conditions. Tunnels for instance. The inertial navigation system is what detects that you have made a turn. When you turn, the GPS location doesn't change very much.

Well , from all the Tales from Conspiracies and from the Late Philip Schneider
of what the Government and the Military was Doing in the 1970s.

and Just now, they are talking about this ! ?

well thats what Most would think,

a Prep up Plan , of something big Event ,,

either a Major War, Natural Disaster, or Something Big Coming Our Way that TPTB knows about
or Perhaps a Ethnic Racial Cleansing , The Guide Stone Do Say the Elite Wants
to Dwindle Down the World Human Population too 500 Million Right ! LOL

Or

The Russians are Doing it so America Is Doing it ! kinda thing as Always

Russia wants to build a base in the Moon’s underground tunnels

Possible but N.A.S.A. J.P.L. RAND Corporation had Plans on the Drawing Board
and had Done the Testing in its labs and Actually Made the Machines to do it
back in the 60s and 70s and also early 80s
the Documents are there on the net
