Molecular electronics for Next generation signal processing, data storage, and communication devices

molecularinformaticd

Molecular electronics, also called moletronics, is the branch of nanotechnology where the molecular building blocks are used for the fabrication of electronic components. It is an interdisciplinary area that spans physics, chemistry, and materials science. The smaller size of the electronic components decreases power consumption while increasing the sensitivity (and …

New trends in Modeling and Simulation, a critical enabler for military training, analysis, decision-making and capability development

d7a332411e14769f300879cf8b1d4da6

“Scientific results cannot be used efficiently by soldiers who have no understanding of them, and scientists cannot produce results useful for warfare without an understanding of the operations,” said Theodore von Kármán (1881-1963).  As the  future Warfare is becoming  increasingly complex and distributed, involving actions across multiple domains — land, air, sea, space, and cyber — …

Threat of Navigation Warfare is driving development of Next generation Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing technologies

Purpose: The purpose of the A-PNT capability is to provide Army forces with unhindered access to trusted Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) under all conditions. Products: Assured PNT contains four (4) subprograms: Mounted PNT- robust integrated multi-sensor system for vehicular applications. Maintains an accurate PNT solution and distributes it to all users on the platform. Dismounted PNT – low-SWAP multi-sensor PNT system for the soldier. Pseudolites – Area protection for large numbers of users. Augments GPS with terrestrial transmission of a GPS-like navigation signal that can be used by military GPS receivers with the necessary software. Anti-Jam Antennas - Point protection for critical users. Enables GPS signal acquisition and tracking in challenged environments. Payoff: Assured PNT capability for Soldiers & combat systems. Ability to obtain and trust PNT information critical to complex combat operations. Ability to avoid or prevent unnecessary or accidental injury or destruction. Ability to seamlessly use advanced weapon systems and tactics. New as of 8 Nov 2012.

Systems like GPS, Russia’s GLONASS, China’s BeiDou, and Europe’s Galileo systems  are  Global Satellite Navigation Systems (GNSS) that provides real-time positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) data. The system provides critical navigation capabilities to military systems including UAVs, soldiers in the dark or in unfamiliar territory, missile and projectile guidance, target …

US DOD’s thrust on in-space robotics for automated on orbit robotic satellite servicing for space security

satellit repair

Current commercial satellite systems are inflexible assets whose capability is defined during early purchase negotiations and becomes fixed at launch. Launch vehicle constraints on payload launch mass and volume severely limit resulting operational performance. A new deployment paradigm is needed for space operations to separate the operational spacecraft configuration from the constraints of …
