Yea, quite a few labs receive grants to do just that. Not just weapons though; anything of use to the troops in the field is a worthy endeavor. Hence Boston Dynamics’ BigDog four-legged robotic equipment haulers for augmenting infantry in any terrain, and Bounce Imaging’s throwable camera, which is a full 360 degree camera you throw like a grenade to see what is in that room or over that wall before risking lives.

Neither is a weapon but both are great innovations to increase soldiers’ combat effectiveness.

Even some of our stuff has been military-funded. Replacement arms and hands for ones that have been blown off that function well enough to hold a weapon steadilly and work the trigger. Wonder what could be so appealing about that, to military forces, hmm?

Researhers put one hell of a lot into the warmachines of various countries, and most of it is under contract. Meaning they’re usually not part of the military themselves. Just funded by it.
