IAA predicts Space elevator capability to transport people and supplies up to 1000 kilometres (621 miles) altitude by 2025

Space elevators are seen as a way to transport people and supplies to stationary satellites. The possible pay-off is as simple as could be — a space elevator could bring the cost-per-kilogram of launch to geostationary orbit from $20,000 to as little as $500. In 2012, Tokyo-based Obayashi Corp. announced plans …

Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) has improved the capability of electronic warfare and anti-missile countermeasure systems

All modern forces depend on unimpeded access to, and use of, the EM spectrum in conducting military operations. Therefore, there is a requirement to gain and maintain an advantage in the electromagnetic spectrum by countering adversary’s systems and protecting one’s own systems. Thus the EM spectrum can no longer be …

New field “Electron Quantum Metamaterials” giving rise to “Twisted electronics” wherein new materials can be created by varying twist angle of 2-D materials

When two atomically thin two-dimensional layers are stacked on top of each other and one layer is made to rotate against the second layer, they begin to produce patterns — the familiar moiré patterns — that neither layer can generate on its own and that facilitate the passage of light …

US Navy found Faulty Welding in Submarine Missile Tubes, developing non-destructive weld inspection methods

In 2000, a Russian cruise-missile submarine — Kursk — sank, killing all 118 sailors on board. The Russian government concluded the ship sunk due to a faulty weld which caused a gas leak and led to an explosion.   The U.S. Navy in August 2018 said that there’s a problem …

Navies exploring Biomimetics, Bio-inspired mechanisms to improve military underwater sensing, control and communications systems

“It was in the oceans that life first evolved and where complex animals have thrived for over 600 million years. Marine animals survive in environments as diverse as tropical coral reefs, polar ice-capped oceans, and the lightless abyssal depths,” says Frank E. Fish from West Chester University and Donna M. …

Technology breakthroughs in GaN enabling large growth in Semiconductor devices market in Defence and Aerospace

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 advantages of GaN-based devices stems largely from the attractive intrinsic physical properties of the material. The material …
