TOP SECRET SCI-FI LAB BUILDING PENTAGON’S KILLER ROBOT ARMY!
Even insects are being turned into weapons
WEAPONIZED insects ... bullets that never miss ... portable nuke sniffers ... Terminator robots ... super soldiers ... and a phantom space plane!
Those sci-fi innovations and more are being developed at America’s most secretive government lab, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — commonly known as DARPA.
Established in 1958, DARPA’s mission is to revolutionize the way America fights the wars of the future.
One project involves a sniper bullet that changes direction after it’s been fired — guaranteeing the shooter never misses!
It’s called EXACTO — Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance — and it turns huge .50 caliber bullets into guided rounds capable of zeroing in on a target.
The agency has also developed an exoskeleton — a wearable mobile machine — that transforms any grunt into a super soldier by conserving up to 15 percent of their energy on the battlefield.
The exoskeleton accomplishes that by taking on physical burdens using built-in sensors and a microcomputer to match the requirements of its wearer.
In one of its most controversial projects, DARPA is spending $2 billion to explore Artificial Intelligence (AI) — specifically, how machines can be taught to communicate and reason like humans.
Its aim is to create lightningfast military computers that can analyze battlefield data and send out commands in the heat of battle.
But critics fear the research could lead to intelligent Terminator robots that could malfunction in unpredictable ways.
Another project, dubbed “Insect Allies,” aims to infect bugs, such as white flies and aphids, with engineered viruses and mutations that can be passed on to plants to make them resistant to bioterrorism.
The phantom space plane — dubbed XS-1 — is a nextgeneration spacecraft that will launch secret missions to the final frontier on a daily basis.
Set to take off for the first time in 2020, the mysterious plane is reportedly powered only by electricity and is expected to have the ability to land and take off vertically. DARPA’s SIGMA program is designed to minimize casualties in the event of a nuclear attack against the U.S.
To do that, the agency developed portable nuke sniffers — cutting-edge, vehicle-mounted radiation detectors that can be fitted on emergency vehicles to map radiation levels.
