The U.S. military spent over $42 billion in research and development in 2018. Though much of this funding tends to go to weapons programs, a great deal of military R&D often ends up also having civilian applications.

Military programs that work on new technology, materials, or gadgets have over the years contributed to the development of several consumer end products, materials used in consumer applications, medical devices, and much more. Some of these products are still made in the United States.

In fact, some of the most widely used commercial products today were originally developed for the purpose of defending the country or were a byproduct of military research. 24/7 Wall St. identified 15 commercial products that are a direct result of military research.
