DARPA (founded as ARPA) is an agency founded in 1958 to research and develop new technologies for the US Department of Defense. It was established in collaboration with academia, industry and government partners to enable research and development projects to be carried out as well as possible and to expand the boundaries of technology and science beyond military requirements. DARPA is an agency that is engaged in many projects that can be said to affect today’s society. One of the latest activities is their collaboration on the Modern Covid-19 vaccine. They are the ones who have partial credit for the many significant innovations we use every day such as meteorological satellites, GPS, drones, voice interfaces (artificial intelligence), the internet and many others.
