We systematically analyze the impact of current and foreseen cosmic ray antiproton measurements on the properties of Dark Matter (DM). We find that: 1) The current data from PAMELA impose constraints on annihilating and decaying DM which are similar to (or even slightly stronger than) the most stringent bounds coming from FERMI gamma rays, for hadronic channels and with fiducial choices for the astrophysical parameters. 2) The upcoming data from AMS-02 have the power to improve these… CONTINUE READING
