“DARPA develops the weapons of the future. It funds everything from basic science to advanced technology, though the ultimate goal is always to develop something that can be used by the military,”

The Untold Story of DARPA, the Pentagon Agency That Changed the World
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, better known as DARPA, is embarking on a new program, called RadioBio, to determine whether cells are able to exchange information with EM signals and, if so, what the cells are saying and how they do it. This new initiative seems very close to the once TOP-SECRET “PANDORA Project”. Follow us on Twitter: @Intel_Today
The Pentagon wants to know more about how your body cells use electromagnetic radiations to talk to each other.
A new research program will explore:
“whether electromagnetic waves are purposefully transmitted and received within or between cells and, if so, to leverage those insights not just for biosystems but also for communicating in cluttered electromagnetic environments.”
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military.
DARPA was created in February 1958 as the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Its purpose was to formulate and execute research and development projects to expand the frontiers of technology and science, with the aim to reach beyond immediate military requirements.
DARPA was created in response to the Soviet launching of Sputnik 1 in 1957, and its mission is to ensure U.S. military technology would be more advanced than that of the nation’s potential enemies. [WIKIPEDIA]

The PANDORA Project
Many of these ideas about cell-to-cell signaling are not new. Twenty-five years ago, Ross Adey described how cells “can whisper together across the barrier of cell membranes.” Such messages, he believed, could control complex biological processes.
Further, Adey maintained that external EM radiation could also activate, overwhelm or muddle such processes. These are more commonly known as non-thermal effects.
Back in the 1960’s, Adey worked on a top-secret DARPA project, called Pandora, to investigate the effects of low levels of microwave radiation.
The project was initiated after the U.S. government discovered that the Soviets were beaming microwaves at its embassy in Moscow. [Microwave News]
In her new book, Weinberger calls Project Pandora, “One of the more bizarre episodes in the history of Cold War science.”
PS: A warning from Putin
In early 2012, Putin observed that the current balance of power, held in place by nuclear arsenals, could well shift in the future due to new technologies. It was in that context that he brought up the ‘psychotronic’ angle:
“The military capability of a country in space or information countermeasures, especially in cyberspace, will play a great, if not decisive, role in determining the nature of an armed conflict.
In the more distant future, weapons systems based on new principles (beam, geophysical, wave, genetic, psychophysical and other technology) will be developed.
All this will, in addition to nuclear weapons, provide entirely new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals. Such high-tech weapons systems will be comparable in effect to nuclear weapons but will be more ‘acceptable’ in terms of political and military ideology.
In this sense, the strategic balance of nuclear forces will play a gradually diminishing role in deterring aggression and chaos.”
