Darpa stories

 
Intel, DARPA, and the San Diego Supercomputer Center have launched an eight year project to create the most powerful computer ever constructed. By 2018, the extreme scale supercomputer will be running exaflop-level calculations: that's a million trillion operations every second, or about a thousand times faster than the fastest supercomputer we've got today.
 
The word "drone" usually conjures up images of the U.S. military's Predator, or similar unmanned aircraft. But there are helicopter drones, too, and Boeing's A160T Hummingbird just got a big upgrade — the ability to see through dense foliage.
 
Not too long ago DARPA put out a call for a flying car, wanting something that had all the versatility on land as a Humvee, but also had Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) capabilities. Texas-based AVX Aircraft is stepping up to the plate, and its concept looks pretty close.
