The Army always shoots for the moon when it comes to making their soldiers stronger, better, and more efficient. Now the Army has been watching Aquaman one to many times it seems, as they want a "Microfabricated Biomimetic Artificial Gill System based on the subdividing regions of clef, filament, and lamellae found in natural fish gills." Using the technology, the Army believes it would benefit troops' ability to maneuveur in high altitutdes and underwater during missions. I'll buy it. The Army is also looking for a way to develop "hybrid propulsion system for undersea weapons." Aquaman, GO!
