The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is a military research and development agency for the United States.[1] It was originally named ARPA, and was created in 1958 in response to the Soviet launch of Sputnik 1. DARPA researches a wide variety of cutting-edge technologies, provided that they can be put to military use. DARPA has been partially responsible for the creation of GPS,[2] weather satellites,[3] and the Internet.[4] Its reputation for ambitious government-backed research makes it a prime target for conspiracy theorists.


DARPA was one of the agencies that originally funded HAARP, and it performed some of the last experiments there before the project ended.[5]
