The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has created a series of three design challenges aimed at developing the next-generation military ground vehicle.

In a new video, DARPA explains the "Fast, Adaptable, Next-Generation Ground Vehicle" challenges, or FANG, that are part of its Adaptive Vehicle Make portfolio of programs.

Using a set of new design tools and the VehicleFORGE collaboration environment, participants can collaborate with others anywhere to create the winning design and compete for a total of $4 million in prizes.

The first FANG Challenge, focusing on mobility and drivetrain subsystems, is set to begin in January 2013.
