New technology breakthroughs enabling global ultra-secure Quantum networks for financial, government and Military


Quantum key distribution (QKD), establishes highly secure keys between distant parties by using single photons to transmit each bit of the key. A unique aspect of quantum cryptography is that Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle ensures that any attempts to intercept and measure quantum transmissions, will introduce an anomalously high error rate …

DARPA’s Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program is advancing autonomy to aid military operations in dense urban areas or heavily wooded forests


“The goal of Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA)  is to develop advanced algorithms to allow unmanned air or ground vehicles to operate without the guidance of a human tele-operator, GPS, or any datalinks going to or coming from the vehicle,” said JC Ledé, the DARPA FLA program manager. Autonomous flight capabilities …

US, China and Russia developing Small / floating Nuclear Reactors to power military forward operating bases, disputed islands and Arctic


U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) is increasingly interested in the potential of Small modular reactors (SMRs) defined as nuclear reactors generally 300MWe equivalent or less. DOD’s attention to small reactors stems mainly from two critical vulnerabilities it has identified in its infrastructure and operations: the dependence of U.S. military bases …

DARPA demonstrates speeding up learning by 40% , enable soldiers speedier learning of new foreign language, analyzing intelligence and cryptography techniques


In March 2016, DARPA launched the Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program, that seeks to advance the pace and effectiveness of a specific kind of learning—cognitive skills training—through the precise activation of peripheral nerves that can in turn promote and strengthen neuronal connections in the brain. TNT will pursue development of …
