We are already living in the world of 1984, if anything we should welcome the robot overlords that will take down big brother.

You get to keep it when you're done, and sell it. The winner doesn't automatically become Army property or anything.

No, the NSA will intercept the technology, test it, then give it to the Army.

They don't get to look at the code, or interface with your system in any way?
