DARPA looks to win the future by making drone swarms and out-building China

DARPA has admitted that stealth technology has reached its limit and the US may no longer be able to asset air dominance against China and Russia.

DARPA wants to accomplish its goal without air superiority. DARPA wants to use a combination of overwhelming performance (e.g. hypersonics) and overwhelming numbers (e.g. swarming low-cost weapons).

They want to shift from expensive systems like F35 to lots of inexpensive drones.

In order to win in a world of inexpensive drone swarms that means the US will need to get cheaper than China’s production and be able to out-build China.

On the ground, DARPA wants Starship Trooper-like exoskeleton armor.
