By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The famed Pentagon research arm that gave the world the Internet and the miniaturized GPS receivers used in consumer devices said on Thursday one of its key goals now is to ensure U.S. troops do not get left behind as technologies advance at a lightning pace.

"Pace today matters on every scale," Prabhakar told the House Armed Services Committee's subcommittee on emerging threats and capabilities. She called for a shift away from complex military systems that take decades to produce and toward far more nimble and adaptive systems.
