Another disaster relief technology, the Parafoil Unmanned Air-Delivery system, is an alternative to helicopters or other aircraft that could be subject to dangerous landings. The propeller-driven air vehicle uses a parachute to lift and transport up to 3,000 pounds of supplies from container ships or areas on shore. Parafoil Unmanned Air-Delivery is one of four modular systems created for DARPA's Tactically Expandable Maritime Platform program.

They do it to make more $$$. By forcing us to click-click-click, they can go back to their ad clients and say, "Your ads were viewed 10x times."

I agree. Articles are VERY annoying and too time consuming without 'View-as-one-page' link option. Although interested, I often skip slide show only articles in disgust and disappointment.

re: 10 Breakthrough DARPA Technologies
It is now the second quarter of the new year.

Information Week only had one important New Year's Resolution this year. '"No Slide Show Articles with out a prominent 'View-as-one-page' link." How's that working out for you so far?

On my side of the fence, as Client/customer, You aren't doing well at all. Nearly every issue, you violate me with one of your Slide Show articles.

Please, re-examine your priorities. You do know how to do it - 'View as Single Page' link. It just isn't that hard and speaks volumes about your respect and concern for your Client / Customers.

Also, when I have to skip articles, I do not get to see your advertisers' messages.
