US Plans to Develop Genetically Engineered ‘Spy Plants’ – DARPA

The Pentagon has directed US researchers to improve the country’s spying capabilities ahead of the Proposers Day.

The Pentagon aims to develop genetically modified plants capable of detecting and collecting relevant data about potential threats, according to the US Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA).

“The program aims to control and direct plant physiology to detect chemical, biological, radiological, and/or nuclear threats, as well as electromagnetic signals.”

According to DARPA, plant sensors developed under the Advanced Plant Technologies program will sense specific stimuli and report these signals in a manner that can be detected by existing hardware platforms.

Researchers are being asked to come up with their own ideas about the viable types of plants that would best suit the needs of the project.
