Why are technological advances more rapid during wartime?

Survival and fear.
To win a war, you want to have better stuff than your enemy. Seeing at night when your enemy can't is a definite advantage, so we got night vision technology. In peacetime, someone has to have the money and motivation to develop night vision and hope it has a use. In war, the motivation is FEAR that the other guy will have it first and we won't SURVIVE unless we get it before they do.

More money circulation from the government, and scouting for the top minds in the world. We stole Einstein from Germany and he gave us a bomb.
Money speeds up discovery for some reason. It's kinda ironic.

they arent, the government is just tricking us into thinking that they are.
