Very interesting technology. Haven't seen much lately about quantum computing, a possible means to confirm if DRFM jamming being applied against you. Angry Kitten is a strange name for this technology, I wonder what the story behind that is?
DARPA is making progress in tech that will enable the US systems to more effectively operate in a dense jamming environment. Software is becoming increasingly complex and will require the performance afforded by the new chip technoogy.

New DARPA chip could give US a leg up in electronic warfare
Enter a new chip from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency that would give the U.S. military a much needed boost when it comes to operating in a combat environment where communications and radar can be jammed by the enemy. This chip an "exceptionally high-speed analog-to-digital converter," known as an ADC would benefit U.S. equipment that operates on the electromagnetic spectrum (radios, radar, etc) by increasing the ability to process portions of the electromagnetic spectrum at a drastically higher rate than current jamming and anti-jamming equipment.
From DARPA's release on the chip:
"Today's ADCs, however, only process data within a limited portion of the spectrum at a given time. As a result, they can temporarily overlook critical information about radar, jamming, communications, and other potentially problematic EM signals. DARPA's Arrays at Commercial Timescales (ACT) program addressed this challenge by supporting the development of an ADC with a processing speed nearly ten times that of commercially available, state-of-the-art alternatives. By leveraging this increased speed, the resulting ADC can analyze data from across a much wider spectrum range, allowing DoD systems to better operate in congested spectrum bands and to more rapidly react to spectrum-based threats."
