New US agency aims to help spies with new technology
A fledging center called IARPA is hoping to soon change that. The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity will try to develop groundbreaking technology that will give new tools to U.S. spies at any one of the 16 spy agencies.
One potential new tool sounds like it comes from an episode of Star Trek: "cloaking" technology that can bend radar around an object to make it appear like it is not there. Others include power sources that are shrunk down using nanotechnology and quantum computers that can speed code-breaking, says IARPA acting director Steve Nixon.
