Large growth in smart textiles providing sensing, energy harvesting and communication and military wearables


The past few years have seen the introduction of a number of wearable technologies, from fitness trackers to smart watches but with the increasing use of smart textiles, wearables are set to become ‘disappearables’ as the devices merge with textiles, according to a new report from Cientifica.Unlike today’s ‘wearables’ tomorrow’s …

Gallium Nitride enabling IoT revolution, Cellular 5G to Military Communications, Radars and Jammers


GaN is a semiconductor material that can amplify high power radio frequency signals efficiently at microwave frequencies  to enhance  a system’s range. Therefore it has become the technology of choice for high-RF power applications that require the transmission of signals over long distances such as EW, radar, base stations and satellite communications.   The adoption of GaN has been advancing significantly over the last five years with several thousand …

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


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 …

DARPA drones shall carry mission adaptable payloads to switch missions mid flight from intelligence, command and control, networking to combat operations


UAS are used as force multipliers. They provide real-time Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) information on remote targets and areas, as well as damage assessment and electronic warfare. They are also commonly used in border control as well as anti-terror operations. Today, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) typically require multiple payloads with dedicated components, …

Terahertz radar for detecting space debris, missiles and stealth aircrafts, imaging of objects behind walls, and detect hidden tanks behind a thick cloud of smoke or dust


The terahertz frequency range, lying between electronics and optics (300 to 3000 gigahertz frequencies), can be disruptive force in sectors as diverse as from medical imaging, biological research, pharmaceutical monitoring, manufacturing and quality control, and semiconductor testing to communications, and security and defence. Terahertz wave has strong penetrability, high safety, …

DARPA’s AMEBA developing transmitters that could communicate through walls, undersea and underground environment


Modern day radio transmitters and receivers, the devices that uses electromagnetic wave signals to communicate through cellphones, radios and television, seem to be present everywhere.  The propagation of these electromagnetic waves has some limitation too,   Key among these is that radio frequency signals hit veritable and literal walls when they …

Plant Nanobionics or ePlants aim to turn plants into sensors detecting explosives, warn of pollutants and environmental conditions such as drought


MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage. This kind of technology could not only save neglected houseplants but, more importantly, give farmers an early warning when their crops are in danger, says Michael Strano, the …

Microfluidics is triggering technological revolutions in many disciplines, including implantable drug delivery systems, to detection of biological or chemical hazards, to DNA analysis.


Microfluidics deals with the behaviour, precise control and manipulation of fluids that are geometrically constrained to a small, typically sub-millimeter, scale. Microfluidics is a multidisciplinary field and is used in the development of inkjet printheads, DNA chips, lab-on-a-chip technology, micro-propulsion, and micro-thermal technologies. Potential applications of this new field range …

Raytheon developing three-dimensional expeditionary long-range radar (3DELRR) that can play critical role in networked integrated Air and Missile defence systems (IAMD)


Militaries around the world are increasingly facing formidable strategic and threat environment in terms of complexity, lethality, range, sophistication and number of threats. To counter these threats, the militaries around the world are developing networked integrated Air and Missile defence systems (IAMD). IAMD entails both the defence against conventional air …
