+ - Military Transformers: 20 Innovative Defense Technologies->

Submitted by

gManZboy writes "Much of the Department of Defense's most advanced research goes on at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), where work is underway on everything from a jet that shoots across the sky at Mach 20 to disaster-response robots. But DARPA's not the only source of war-fighting innovations. The Naval Research Laboratory, major defense contractors, and IBM have projects underway, too. Check out these 20 innovative defense technologies, some that are being deployed and others still on the drawing board.

Which will see the light of day? The proposed Defense budget for fiscal year 2013 would cut R&D funding by $2.2 billion, to $69.7 billion, though DARPA's budget would be spared significant cuts.

Some of the technologies in development have potential application in the commercial world. Others--including a battleground vehicle that transforms into a helicopter--rewrite the rules of war."
