 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technology for use by the military.
The controversial Mansfield Amendment of 1973 expressly limited appropriations for defense research (through ARPA/DARPA) to projects with direct military application.
Additionally, the political and defense communities recognized the need for a high-level Department of Defense organization to formulate and execute RandD projects that would expand the frontiers of technology beyond the immediate and specific requirements of the Military Services and their laboratories.

 TomDispatch - Tomgram: Turse on weaponizing the Wild Kingdom
As evidenced by their Vietnam-era mechanical elephant project and a recent grant to researchers developing a robotic canine called "Big Dog" for the Army, DARPA might be said to have something of an animal fetish, reflected perhaps in various projects whose very names evoke the ethos of the wild kingdom.
DARPA researchers are also at work on the "Brain Machine Interface" ("neuromics") project, designed as a mind/machine interface, allowing mechanical devices to be controlled via thought-power.
DARPA has taken up the torch and is funding a rigorous research program aimed at finding novel ways to weaponize the natural world.
