And again about the promising developments of DARPA




After the Soviet Union launched the first artificial satellite of the Earth, the United States was tasked to confirm its leading position in the field of world technologies and, especially, in the field of armaments. In order to unite efforts in this direction, an Advanced Defense Research Projects Agency (DARPA) was established under the Department of Defense of the United States in 1958. The new structure was tasked to develop new technologies for the US military, to inform the Pentagon in a timely manner about the emergence of new technical developments in other countries, to bring scientific basic research closer to the field of their application in the field of armaments.
DARPA employs 240 employees, of whom 140 are technicians. Almost all DARPA projects are short-term (from 2 to 4 years). For each project there is a specially designated group.
It is impossible to say that the DARPA projects are fantastic, but that development is conducted in the areas of ensuring the military, economic and political security of the country is undoubtedly.
To understand the essence of the developments we consider the projects implemented by the scientific and technical division.

    About biofuels.
    - there is no competition with agricultural production;

    Why grow plants (rapeseed) on the ground if it can be grown using hydroponic technology. The plus will be that the crop can be harvested more, and the grain itself will be larger in size. Than grown by conventional technology.

    According to international agreements, the use of the territory of the Arctic for military purposes is prohibited. It is impossible to create military bases, it is forbidden to test weapons of mass destruction, even flights of military aircraft in the airspace of the Arctic are prohibited.

    Is Wikipedia quoted? What are such agreements? In my opinion there is some kind of confusion with the Antarctic. If Russia has signed such an agreement or agreements, then why has the Northern Fleet not yet been disbanded?
