Darkblade Systems hosts an internal working group called Darkblade Labs, a collaborative, advanced Research and Development team focused on exploring cutting-edge research and ideas across cyber, intelligence, operations, and other technical domains.
Darkblade Labs seeks to apply the latest R&D to productize ideas for field application and mission usage in training and real-world operational environments. Darkblade’s goal is to facilitate and expedite the incubation of new, quick-reaction technical approaches.
Labs includes efforts in these fields of operational research:
- Computer Network Operations (CNO) – platform-agnostic Computer Network Attack (CNA) and Computer Network Exploitation (CNE) tools.
- Mobility – software and military-spec hardware platforms for full-spectrum and all-environment operational usage.
- Unmanned Systems – integration and miniaturization (Size, Weight, & Power – SWAP) of sensors and applications. This includes R&D into counter-unmanned operations and TTP development.
