Quantum routers is key technology for Quantum internet—the quantum version of the current Internet

Quantum information is the enabling factor behind a number of emerging technologies that many physicists expect to have a huge impact on society in future: powerful quantum computers, (almost) perfectly secure quantum cryptography and the quantum internet that will distribute these capabilities round the planet. Quantum cryptography is an emerging technology …

Millimeter or AEHF based Satellites to provide military Global, Assured, Protected, Survivable communications and Nuclear Command and Control

The current satellites mostly operate at lower frequencies like C- and X-bands each have 500 MHz of bandwidth and they are already crowded with users. Today, naval C- and X-band shipboard SATCOM terminals require supplemental EMI rejection filters to allow them to operate in a battle group environment, especially in close proximity …

System on chip (SoC) enabling small (SWaP) Military micro air vehicles, and soldier-worn electronics

A system on a chip or system on chip (SoC)  is an integrated circuit (also known as a “chip”) that integrates all components of a computer or other electronic system. These components typically (but not always) include a central processing unit (CPU), memory, input/output ports and secondary storage – all …

DARPA GXV-T advancing mobility, survivability, safety, and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling on armor

Since the creation of the main battle tank during World War I, there has been a constant arms race between the development of anti-armor weapons and vehicle protection systems, however “Weapons’ ability to penetrate armor, however, has advanced faster than armor’s ability to withstand penetration”.   The traditional protection technique …

DARPA’s Open Manufacturing program develops high speed and high quality 3D printing Processes

Uncertainties in materials and component manufacturing processes are a primary cause of cost escalation and delay during the development, testing and early production of defense systems. In addition, fielded military platforms may have unanticipated performance problems, despite large investment and extensive testing of their key components and subassemblies. These uncertainties …

Military decision support require efficient optimization algorithms

Research in military mission planning is  an important field. Today military operations rely on increasingly complex joint and multinational environments. This calls for innovative concepts, doctrine, and technologies to support the emergence of new planning and execution systems that are more flexible, adaptive, inter-operable, and responsive to a time-varying and …

Silicon photonics and photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for Security, Defence and Aerospace

There is virtually no part of a modern defense system that is not impacted in some way by optics and photonics, even when the system is not optically based. Modern defense systems are migrating toward optically based imaging, remote sensing, communications, and weapons.   Silicon photonics uses photons to detect …

Next-generation maritime inertial navigation systems addressing the navigation and localization challenge of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), critical for commercial and military missions

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), also known as unmanned underwater vehicle, conducts its survey mission without operator intervention. Their autonomy allows AUVs to be used for missions where a surface vehicle or manned submersible would be at risk, such as mine countermeasure (MCM),  under-ice operations or underwater survey missions such as …

3D Printing emerging as key fabrication technology for Soft robotics because of high quality and printing multiple materials at the same time

Soft robotics differ from traditional counterparts in some important ways: Soft robots have little or no hard internal structures. Instead they use a combination of muscularity and deformation to grasp things and move about. Rather than using motors, cables or gears, soft robots are often animated by pressurized air or …
