DARPA has a 5-10 percent program success rate

According to DARPA - Enabling Technical Innovation, only five or ten out of every hundred programs meet their goals and are transitioned to the user community. That’s a 5-10% success rate.

A former DSO Director confirmed that their success rate was about one in seven, which is slightly higher.

Obviously this isn’t a well-behaved distribution.
