I was just curious since I'm interested in joining this agency.

nope, not all....many of DARPA's employee never served in the military, much less even played a junior varsity or little league sport. Many of the employees are very intelligent, and come from backgrounds of engineering discipline studied at very good schools.


It is possible for a former military member to join DARPA down the road, providing he/she has the qualifications they look for.


But some branches of the military will work with DARPA more than others.

For example, as a Navy cryptologist, you have a chance of working with darpa, rather than a Marine Mortarman.....

or as an Airforce stealth pilot, coordinating preferences for a new aircraft,......rather than an army Calvary scout


DARPA really designs the high end technology our military and government use....not really using them.

I thought DARPA just funded independent companies. Like the robots made by Boston Dynamics
