The article discusses the advances of communication technology for military use and the challenges of transitioning these innovations for public safety and commercial use. It cites as an example the code division multiple access (CDMA), a technique invented by actress Hedy Lamarr and used to jam radio signals during World War II. CDMA became the foundation of third-generation wireless broadband networks. Also cited is the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), a network that links computers via routers and known as the Internet.
