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 …

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


“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 — …

Military adopting Smart phones and tablets, into tactical operations, however they also increase vulnerability


In reversal of earlier trend when technology was developed for military and then found way in commercial domain, presently Military is increasingly looking to commercial devices like Smartphones and tablets and are rapidly making their way into military operations. U.S. Army Special Operations Command reportedly has started using iPhone 6S as …

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 …

DARPA creating a Secure, Private Internet and Cloud for Warfighters at the tactical edge to quickly share current intelligence information and imagery on their mobile devices


Warfighters at the tactical edge are generally required to communicate with base facilities in order to report and retrieve new information about their locations, missions, and potential threats. With current communications technology, this critical operational content is not always immediately accessible nor distributable for warfighters who are outside of the …

Robots rapidly advancing from assistants to our close companions to replacing us and finally Robot-human hybrids


Robots are rapidly evolving over the years from being our invaluable assistants in factories, surgery, defence and security. Now they are becoming become our partners in our homes and office. Robots have already invaded our lives from factory floors, bomb retrievers, to robots used in surgery, space exploration, agriculture and construction. …

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, …

Army Research Laboratory developing poly(urethane urea) elastomers (PUUs) for combat helmets


Armor used to protect soldiers and vehicles has traditionally been comprised of ceramics, metals, or lightweight fiber-reinforced composites, which are typically based on stiffness (the resistance of a material against deformation) and toughness (the ability to absorb energy and plastically deform prior to fracture). The Army’s current combat helmet is made …
