Description

US’ Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency(DARPA) is the progenitor of many technologies which are synonymous to modern life today. Several countries including India strive to duplicate DARPA and its success in their own respective defence R&D ecosystem. None have been successful due to various policy, funding and structural reasons. Aditya Pareek joins Pranay Kotasthane to discuss the various issues around the Indian defence R&D space and what we can learn from the DARPA model.
