The Autonomous Resiliency / Machine Recovery (ARMR) system has been developed by APL since 2015, has recently identified a commercial licensee, and is just starting to roll out small pilot studies. In this talk, I will discuss the technology, timeline, and lessons learned about the challenges of innovating while continuing to make critical contributions to other projects in the cybersecurity defense of the nation.
