“Unrestricted Warfare?” – Lawmakers concerned about Defense Department grants to colleges hosting Confucius Institutes

(From The Washington Free Beacon)

The Pentagon last week awarded five grants to university-industry teams collaborating on research related to U.S. defense capabilities as part of the department’s Defense Enterprise Science Initiative, a pilot program that incentivizes this type of collaboration. Three of the universities—Arizona State, Stanford, and the University of Washington—are home to Confucius Institutes, which are embedded on college campuses to teach Chinese language and culture while propagating communist viewpoints

…The DESI awards granted by the Defense Department earlier this month will support industry-university teams researching power beaming, highly-maneuverable autonomous drones, and metamaterial-based antennas, among other topics related to defense capabilities. Industry partners include Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Skydio, TERA-print, and Visor Corporation.
