Technology would make robots “truly anonymous”
Paul Joseph Watson
April 11, 2013
A Pentagon-funded team of scientists have constructed a machine that functions like a human brain and would enable robots to think independently and act autonomously.
Researchers for DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) have created a device that “looks and ‘thinks’ like a human brain,” James K. Gimzewski, professor of chemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles, told National Defense [...]

Pentagon hopes nicotine plant can ‘cure’ chemical weapons effects
Pentagon hopes nicotine plant can ‘cure’ chemical weapons effects
It’s a somewhat ironic decision by a country that vowed to spend $54 million on anti-tobacco advertising campaigns this year.
The Pentagon’s research branch, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), awarded $2.7 million to Kentucky Bioprocessing, LLC to research the rBuChe protein, which is found in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant, Wired magazine [...]
The technology exists, don’t doubt it.
DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) was established 1958 in response to the Soviet launch of Sputnik. DARPA reports directly to the Secretary of Defense; however, it operates independently of the rest of military research and development. Its basic principles are:
Small and flexible, with a flat organization structure
World-class scientists and engineers work with representatives from industry, universities and government labs
Project-based style; technical staff rotated [...]

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is investigating ways to store technology, including drones, on the ocean floor until needed by the U.S. Navy.
An ongoing challenge for the Navy is anticipating where resources will be needed and distributing them accordingly, knowing it can take days or weeks for its ships to reach a location across the globe. DARPA’s new program, called Upward Falling Payloads, would [...]
The Pentagon is hoping to one day be able to patrol the seas with unmanned submarine drones, according to website RT.com.
The website reports that the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded a contract valued at more than $58 million to Science Applications International Corporation of McLean, Va. to perfect similar technology for the sea that has proved so successful in the air. …

The U.S. military-funded robot dog program now has two electronic canines in training to haul gear for soldiers over rugged terrain. Each member of the pack is also 10 times quieter than its predecessor robot, which should make it easier to hold a conversation or sneak up on an enemy.
The Legged Squad Support System (LS3), as the Boston Dynamics’ AlphaDog robots are known, are being developed for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) as [...]
DARPA enlists makers of “BigDog” to construct machines that can think for themselves
Aug 16, 2012
The Department of Defense has awarded a lucrative contract to an engineering and robotics design company to develop and build humanoid robots that can act intelligently without supervision.
Boston Dynamics Inc. has been contracted by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the agency responsible for the development of new technologies for use by the military, [...]
The future of war is going to look really, really weird. The “super soldier” research that DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is working on right now is unlike anything we have ever seen before. If DARPA is successful, and if the American people don’t object, the soldiers of the future will be genetically modified transhumans capable of superhuman feats. Do you want a soldier that can run faster [...]

(NaturalNews) Who knew the Pentagon had muscled into the US vaccine program?
DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has been doing research on vaccine production. They’ve found a way to produce flu vaccines a lot faster than Big Pharma.
The Pentagon’s DARPA lab has announced a milestone, but it doesn’t involve drones or death missiles. Scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency say they’ve produced 10 million doses of an influenza vaccine in only one month’s time.
In a press release out of the agency’s office this week, scientists with DARPA say they’ve reach an important step in being able to combat a flu pandemic that might [...]
In a motion filed today, the three former intelligence analysts confirm that the NSA has, or is in the process of obtaining, the capability to seize and store most electronic communications passing through its U.S. intercept centers, such as the “secret room” at the AT&T facility in San Francisco first disclosed by retired AT&T technician Mark Klein in early 2006.
“For years, government lawyers have been arguing that our case is [...]

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) wants to stop whistleblowers before they can leak any data by enticing them with fake documents and information that will reveal their identities.
In a recent paper for the DoD’s technological research arm, contractors note that they have constructed “a prototype for automatically generating and distributing believable misinformation … and then tracking access and attempted misuse of it.”
“We call this ‘disinformation technology.’” the [...]
The Pentagon is about to waste $1.5 trillion, 38% of entire defense budget for a “virtual flying piano“. That may sound preposterous, and it is. Unfortunately, it is also true.
Foreign Policy Magazine discusses the sad saga of The Jet That Ate the Pentagon.
Although the plane was originally billed as a low-cost solution, major cost increases have plagued the program throughout the last decade. Last year, Pentagon leadership told Congress the acquisition price [...]
A $320 million hypersonic drone developed by the Pentagon tore itself apart after just three minutes after it blasted through the atmosphere at 20 times the speed of sound.
When the military launched of the Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 last summer, it was widely viewed as a failure because it was lost over the Pacific Ocean well before its flight, scheduled for 30 minutes, was supposed to end.
The craft was [...]

The results are in from last summer’s attempt to test new technology that would provide the Pentagon with a lightning-fast vehicle, capable of delivering a military strike anywhere in the world in less than an hour.
In August the Pentagon’s research arm, known as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, carried out a test flight of an experimental aircraft capable of traveling at 20 times the speed of sound.
The U.S. Army is dedicating millions of research dollars into discovering building helmets to allow soldiers to telepathically communicate with one another on the battlefield.
The technology, which seems like something out of a science fiction novel, would use electrodes to pick up code words that soldiers were thinking.
Those codewords would then be transmitted back to a computer where the soldier’s position and message- telling, for instance, that it is safe [...]

“It sees you when you’re sleeping and knows when you’re awake” could be the theme song for a new spy satellite being developed by DARPA. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s latest proof-of-concept project is called the Membrane Optical Imager for Real-Time Exploitation (MOIRE), and would provide real-time images and video of any place on Earth at any time — a capability that, so far, only exists [...]
IBM has unveiled a new experimental computer chip that it says mimics the human brain in that it perceives, acts and even thinks.
It terms the machines built with these chips “cognitive computers”, claiming that they are able to learn through experience, find patterns, generate ideas and understand the outcomes.
In building this new generation of chip, IBM combined principles of nanoscience, neuroscience and supercomputing.
It has been awarded $21m [...]
A test flight of an experimental aircraft capable of speeding through air at 20 times the speed of sound ended prematurely Thursday morning when the arrowhead-shaped plane failed and stopped sending back real-time data to engineers and scientists who were moderating the mission.

The New York Times and the Washington Post have posted articles detailing a plan by the Pentagon to detect and track popular ideas on social networks.
They are not interested in what people think about Lady Gaga or the latest cooking recipes.
In 2005, it was reported that the Pentagon was adding anti-war groups and individuals to a terrorist database. A Defense Department document leaked to [...]
The U.S. is creating a virtual version of the Internet–this one designed as a testbed to help the nation hone its defenses against cyberattacks, according to Reuters and other sources.
Known as the National Cyber Range, the virtual testbed would be set up by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the same agency that kicked off the Internet itself more than 40 [...]
