US Military Develops “Insect-like Legs” For Helicopters and Drones to Land on Rough Terrain

(Era of Wisdom) Atlanta, GeorgiaHelicopters require level surfaces to land on. You can’t land a helicopter on hilly terrain, and that makes helicopters “unlandable” on many surfaces.

As the US Military are constantly trying to expand their military might, this problem is being solved by a project from DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.)

To overcome this helicopter/drone landing limitation, DARPA “took a moment away from building a Terminator to experiment with attaching robotic legs to a helicopter.”

The system is composed of 4 legs that can bend very similar to an insect’s legs.

To avoid the reality that this could be used for injustice, conquest, or immoral acts of aggression by the powerful United States military, DARPA describes the technology as useful for “forward operating areas, ships at sea and natural-disaster zones.”

Of course they would use the most humanitarian sounding justification available for their mad scientists of war.

Understanding the developments of DARPA technology is an essential factor in comprehending the actual potential and power possessed by the United States government.

Knowing the history of U.S. military aggression will put into context just how dangerous DARPA is, as a whole.

To add to this scope of understanding, here are some other technologies currently being developed by the agency;

DARPA (formely “ARPA”) literally invented the internet. Yes, the internet started off as the “Arpa-Net.”

I highly recommend doing some research into DARPA, and staying up to date on DARPA’s captivating and menacing technological developments.
