The Ministry of Defense in the late 1950s in response to the creation of the Soviet Union first space satellite appeared DARPA projects (DARPA). Over the years, the agency entrusted to design for the needs of the Pentagon's most risky, unconventional, and at times fantastic projects - from flying saucers, "robot-eating" and "zombie soldiers" to insect cyborgs and even immortal organisms. In January, DARPA announced a program to develop autonomous deep storage to replenish Navy ships with the necessary resources and spare parts.
So far, the program UFP Read more [...]
U.S. military agency DARPA launched a program Upward Falling Payloads, providing for the creation of rapidly deployable systems on the ocean floor. These systems will include a variety of equipment for data collection. If necessary, hidden on the bottom of the "nodes" will be activated. After receiving the signal, they will have to come to the surface and begin to convey information.UFP centers will be placed in special containers in which they can stay for many years. Since the system will be hidden in deep water, it would be difficult to identify. Currently, DARPA began accepting Read more [...]
Medical care on the battlefield at the first request is often crucial to the survival of the wounded soldiers. However, in the case of an internal abdominal injuries and internal bleeding is little that can be done to stop the bleeding until the patient is taken to the hospital. As a result of blood loss often leads to death with wounds, with which to survive. Technology-based foam, developed as part of DARPA Wound Stasis System (system preservation injury or something like that) has shown promising results in testing. In the test model, the foam showed the ability to stop the blood for Read more [...]
Defense science agency DARPA has submitted a video that shows how an advanced system Phoenix, quickening spent satellites. As planned by experts DARPA, robots will one day orbital re-use various parts of dead satellites, such as antennas and transmitters. This makes sense from an economic point of view: satellite launch costs tens of millions of dollars, but in 5-10 years it becomes a waste. To date, of the 1,300 large space objects in Earth orbit only 500 - is operational satellites. In the short space of useful sites and designs that can be reused. In the video, released DARPA, shows Read more [...]
AndAnd is the ultimate weapon, the strength of which is still undervalued states - as far as we know. (But a very successful project Evrisko early 80's has received financial support DARPA1.) However, the idea of nanotechnology has already penetrated into the minds of the rulers of many countries, and the idea of a strong AI is far from it. Therefore it is possible a decisive turn when the state and large corporations realize that the AI - it is the ultimate weapon - and they can take possession of someone else. Then small private laboratories will podmyaty large public corporations, as Read more [...]
