52 years after DARPA was formed as ARPA in 1958 Russia is now talking about creating a DARPA like agency for military research.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has called for his country to adopt a United States-style defence research agency to innovate new arms technology

Medvedev warned that Russia was falling behind other country’s defence industries due to the lack of high-tech production.

‘We need a research think-tank such as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in the United States,’ Medvedev told a meeting of the Commission for Modernisation and Technological Development

Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov announced that by 2020 Russia will be spending the equivalent of 53 billion euros (71 billion dollars) per year on military technology. Currently, the budget stands at 45 billion euros.
