Assuming the concept is viable..why quibble with the paltry military budget?
How about a BIG budget...perhaps that of Health and Human Services.?
Personally I think government funding of science is a bad idea. I think corporations...or better yet...individuals...should have less of their income confiscated.(ideally...NONE). THEN we'd see some advances.
