    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Currently a vast number of scientific publications in Russia and abroad are devoted to the phenomenon of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Success factors of the Agency are usually identified as: a recruitment policy of research managers, scientific resources of the Agency&amp;rsquo;s contractors, unique super-system of the DARPA&amp;#39;s external environment and significant costs of R&amp;amp;D initiatives spent by the US Department of Defense. At the same time, systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) contracting in the implementation of DARPA&amp;#39;s high-risk projects have been neglected as a rule by the time. This paper describes the role of SETA-support contractors in ensuring the success of DARPA&amp;#39;s ambitious projects and the impact of government contracts technical support on perspective defense R&amp;amp;D programs. The SETA rate in total R&amp;amp;D expenditures of DARPA are evaluated as 7,4-9,9%. Finally, the possibility of implementation of best practices and experiences of SETA system utilization for technological support of perspective high-risk R&amp;amp;D programs for governmental Russian agencies is analyzed.&lt;/p&gt;
