DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) was established 1958. It reports directly to the Secretary of Defense and operates independently of the rest of military research and development.

You just ended a question with a period. Where’s your grammer?
It wasn’t a question.
Those other agencies aren’t really related to DARPA - they just adopted similar acronyms in emulation of them.
My impression of working with DARPA is that they’re vaguely incompetent and a bit detached from reality. That varies greatly from program manager to program manager and they have a lot of personnel turnover (deliberately).
They are linked to industry for the obvious reason that the vast majority of technological innovation comes from industry.
There’s not much of an evil conspiracy here.
Where's your spelling? (G-R-A-M-M-A-R)
I disagree, but everyone has an opinion.
Looking for propur speling and gramer on the Interwebs is a loosing battle...
I wasn’t asking a question. I’m not sure why this poster was trying to read my thoughts.
There, it all makes sense, Mulder and Scully were right, The Truth Is Out There, man!
You see, I understood you.
Our company has done work for DARPA. Pretty sure they are not an agency that should be of concern. I’d be more concerned with anything Big Sis, Holder, or Sebelius are directly involved with.
You’re making my head hurt, Sarge. Ouch.
Because Big Sis, Holder and Sebelius haven’t got any access at all to the stuff in DARPA.
Or the IRS.
Or the EPA.
Over the life of the agency, DARPA has been WILDLY successful, which is why those other organizations are copying them. They were originally set up to be (and still are) a "wild, wild blue sky" organization to provide seed funding for ideas that have very low probability of success, but which, if successful, will have huge impact.
"They are linked to industry for the obvious reason that the vast majority of technological innovation comes from industry."
"Theres not much of an evil conspiracy here."
Also correct. ANY technology can have "evil" implications depending on how it is used.
(And I was thinking about my grammer - in the kitchen making cookies...)
