The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense (DoD). It manages and directs selected basic and applied research and development projects for DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional military roles and missions.

Mission

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) "programs address affordability as one metric in the set of metrics and exit criteria guiding each high risk, high payoff technology program. The relative emphasis of cost in each program depends on the desires of the transition partner and the program's technological maturity." [2]
