DARPA Commits $65M to Brain Implant Program for Super Soldier Project

By Aaron Kesel

The U.S. military is disclosing a super soldier project, revealing to have allocated funding of $65 million dollars for a program to develop a ‘Brain-Computer Interface’ that would allow participants to plug into a computer like the movie The Matrix. No this isn’t science fiction Neo, this is the future that the MIC wants for its soldiers.

Earlier last year in January, DARPA launched Neural Engineering System Design to research technology that could turn soldiers into cyborgs.

The military wants to use these programs to “give soldiers supersenses and boost brainpower.” Four teams will be responsible for increasing vision and two on hearing and speech. The military adds that this will help develop “new treatments for patients with sensory disorders.”

The program is being backed by Brown University, Columbia University, The Seeing and Hearing Foundation, the John B. Pierce Laboratory, Paradromics Inc and the University of California.

These organizations have formed teams to develop the fundamental research and component technologies required to pursue the NESD vision of a high-resolution neural interface and integrate them to create and demonstrate working systems able to support potential future therapies for sensory restoration,’ official said.

The goal of the project is ‘developing an implantable system able to provide precision communication between the brain and the digital world,’ DARPA officials said.

“Today’s best brain-computer interface systems are like two supercomputers trying to talk to each other using an old 300-baud modem. Imagine what will become possible when we upgrade our tools to really open the channel between the human brain and modern electronics,” Phillip Alvelda, NESD manager for DARPA, said to The Guardian.

They allege that this new study into technology and the human mind “will help treat people with blindness, paralysis and speech disorders.”

Advancing neuroscience isn’t the only experiment that DARPA has been up to; they are also actively trying to merge man with machines … essentially transhumanism.

The military industrial complex has been trying for years to develop robotic exosuits and mech robots to increase a soldier’s strength as documented by the Raytheon Sarcos XOS 2 exosuit. Which makes its wearer stronger, have an increased agility and endurance like a superhero.

Around the same time as the release of the XOS 2 exosuit in 2015 the military also released “The Revision Kinetic Operation Suit.” The suit has a built-in night vision, computers, a communications system and a suspended metal exoskeleton that wraps 60% of a soldier’s body in armor. It’s so heavy that a motorized metal skeleton to carry the weight is needed to move the soldier.

It’s also worth mentioning that technocrats in Silicon Valley are interested in the transhumanist A.I. society. Tesla’s Elon Musk and former Google[X] Executive Mary Lou Jepsen both are planning mind reading technology and share the same interest of the privately owned military industrial complex to transition the human race to becoming more like machines.
