DARPA is looking to start a revolution in underground warfare.
DARPA looks for robots and other tech to make cracking tunnels faster and safer
North Korea and Iran have large underground facilties where they have their nuclear weapons and other operations. DARPA is looking at breakthroughs for dealing with tunnels and underground cities.
Underground is the new frontier for military and security action. Although tunnels were already extensively used in the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s. Tunnels are more and more of a problem in Mexico and Middle East.
DARPA Launches Subterranean Challenge to Improve Underground Ops
In Brief Elon Musk isn't the only one venturing below Earth's surface. DARPA has launched a competition that invites teams to develop a better means of understanding and traversing underground.
With this in mind, how do you think underground warfare will look in the near, mid, and far-term future?
