DOD makes strange request for underground urban tunnel systems…by Friday


A recent request by the Department of Defense is turning heads online, and sparking a bit of fear among Americans attempting to read between the lines.

Within the expansive and often clandestine world of the DOD lies DARPA – one of the nation’s most illusive government agencies.  According to Wikipedia:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military.

Originally known as the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), the agency was created in February 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in response to the Soviet launching of Sputnik 1 in 1957. By collaborating with academic, industry, and government partners, DARPA formulates and executes research and development projects to expand the frontiers of technology and science, often beyond immediate U.S. military requirements.[3]

DARPA-funded projects have provided significant technologies that influenced many non-military fields, such as computer networking and the basis for the modern Internet, and graphical user interfaces in information technology.

DARPA is independent of other military research and development and reports directly to senior Department of Defense management. DARPA has about 220 employees, of whom approximately 100 are in management.[4]

In short; DARPA are the guys at the DOD with all the high-tech toys.

Now the agency is looking for massive underground tunnel systems for experiments that they are unwilling to to disclose…and they want them within days.

Even when asked about the request, DARPA was demure.

Gizmodo reached out to Darpa and the agency confirmed that the turnaround time was short, but said that it was originally posted last week. That’s still incredibly short notice for a government agency that needs a large space for its experiments. Darpa wouldn’t explain why they needed an underground facility so quickly.

“Complex urban underground infrastructure can present significant challenges
for situational awareness in time-sensitive scenarios, such as active combat
operations or disaster response,” a Darpa spokesperson who asked to remain nameless told Gizmodo by email.

“DARPA is interested in exploring this domain for researchers to analyze and enhance approaches to improve situational awareness and response times in emergency scenarios,” the Darpa spokesperson continued. “Locations submitted could help the research community identify relevant sites for further field experimentation to accelerate their development of such technologies.”

Ever spookier:  DARPA’s response to one curious Twitter user.

For now, we can only speculate as to the full extent of the agency’s plans…and that’s giving us a sever case of the heebie-jeebies.
