>>>The Information Technology Office (ITO) of the Defense Advanced
>>>Projects Agency (DARPA) is launching a new research initiative:
>>>in the Extreme (NETEX). The program focuses on robust wireless
>>>technologies that enable widespread deployment of sensors as well as
>>>types of distributed systems in a complex, harsh environment. The
>>>emphasis will be on networking based on ultrawideband (UWB) radios -
>>>alternative or a complement to networks using narrowband RF physical
>>>Applications demonstrations such as distributed ground sensors and
>>>precision-geolocation will be explored.
>>>An informational and team-building meeting will be held on September
>>>2001 in McLean, Virginia. Attendance is optional, but is strongly
>>>recommended for all potential bidders and future participants of the
>>>NETEX program and solicitation information:
