Fun with DTIC

I remember, back in a former life working for the defense industry, that the Defense Technical Information Center would periodically send out Xeroxed reports of all the juicy research they were funding. I was always stunned by the number of studies involving fruit flies, even though of course I was theoretically more concerned with research in signal processing. Now you can see it on-line, and it has a search feature.

And it returns entries when fed with dirty words, too. The old circulated paper copies never had discharge reports, for example.
