Pentagon news and updates revealed an amazing technology that could be used to enhance security. Also, it has been noted that DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) entered Pentagon's domain with a game changer tech that aims on improving lives and national security.

Scientists and engineers of DARPA took over the Pentagon center courtyard today, defying gray skies and a steady drizzle to demonstrate to future users some of their most cutting-edge work for national security, and two of the Defense Department's top technology leaders also were there to speak with reporters about DARPA's mission, Stephen P. Welby, assistant secretary of defense for research and engineering and DARPA Director Dr. Arati Prabhakar, as reported in the Official Website of the U.S. Department of Defense.

In individual tents situated neatly around the courtyard, DARPA program managers and staff showed off and explained more than 60 of the agency's programs involving air systems, biology, counterterrorism, cyber, ground warfare, maritime systems, microsystems, space and the electromagnetic spectrum, reports the same post.

Moreover, "DARPA really is the disruption engine behind our technology enterprise in the department," Welby said in an interview with DoD News, "working on cutting-edge technologies that are going to fundamentally shape our future, and working to bring that future into today."

Meanwhile, in a given post by VOA indicated the mission and visions of DARPA. According to the post, the technological creations range from those intended for use from undersea to outer space and it aims to improve all aspects of warfare, from ground combat to cyber, even developing seeds of surprise and what one official described as projects that are "above and beyond what the enemy would ever expect."

A particular game changer technology is the ACTUV. It would therefore decrease the number of sailors needed to defend a carrier, saving the military tens of millions of dollars spent on crew members currently needed to carry out the same level of defense, as noted by the same post.

The recent news and updates of Pentagon and the revelation of its amazing technology is taken with much anticipation and apprehensions. Although DARPA entered Pentagon's domain with a game changing tech that could transform and enhance security, there are still varying hurdles that DARPA needs to overcome to ensure that the game changing tech is suited and viable for Pentagon's needs and requirements.
