Growing threat of Deepfakes or AI-generated fake video and audio be exploited for terrorism, psychological and cyber warfare

In recent years consumer imaging technology (digital cameras, mobile phones, etc.) has become ubiquitous, allowing people the world over to take and share images and video instantaneously. Mirroring this rise in digital imagery is the associated ability for even relatively unskilled users to manipulate and distort the message of the …

Devices based on Near-Field Thermal Radiation for high efficiency solar panels, thermal management of laptops and smartphones

Heat (i.e., thermal energy) is defined as the energy that is transferred spontaneously between two bodies due to difference in their temperature; heat flows from high to low temperature. There are three main well-known mechanisms for heat transfer: conduction through solid and fluids, convection through fluid, and radiation through solid, …

Rising tensions between US and Iran may lead to war, Iran claims to have full control of the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, based on its Naval Power

In July 2019 US Navy ship in the Persian Gulf reportedly used a new, anti-drone system to take down an Iranian drone that came within a thousand yards, according to Military.com. In a statement, the Department of Defense confirmed that the USS Boxer was moving through the Strait of Hormuz …

“Trion” instead of electron will play a key role in Future electronics and Quantum information transmission

Trions are what scientists call “quasiparticles,” bundles of energy, electric charge and spin that zoom around inside semiconductors.   Trions were first observed in quantum wells in 1993 and shortly thereafter in GaAs-AlGaAs quantum wells. Trions were were predicted and found in the photoluminescence and absorption spectra of various optically …

Carbon nanotubes revolutionising Military with miniature sensors, ultrawideband communications, micro robots and efficient power sources

Nanotechnology enables designing and creating structures and devices utilising extraordinary properties and behaviour of matter at very fine length scales – nanoscale level (10-9 m). Between 2001 and 2004, approximately 60 countries globally implemented national nanotechnology programmes. According to R.D Shelton, an international technology assessor, research and development in this …

Polarization-based imaging systems or cameras enhance machine vision, autonomous vehicle navigation, facial recognition, and military target detection

Humans view the intensity of light as the various colors of the spectrum. Characteristics of light include amplitude (intensity), frequency (color), polarization, and coherence. The human eye has cone cells, that correspond reflected light from objects into colors which range from wavelengths of approximately 400-700nm. Polarization, the direction in which …

Quantum Cryptography emerging alternative to secure Military Internet of things (MIOT) from cyber attacks even in post Quantum Computer Era

The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the …

ISIS still a threat to the US and the World capable of wreaking havoc and bloodshed

In spite of repeated assertions by Trump of his administration’s success in defeating the terrorist organization and destroying its so-called caliphate in Iraq and Syria, experts still think that ISIS remains a threat. While ISIS’s so-called “caliphate” has been destroyed, and it no longer holds even a fraction of the …

New technologies promise Quantum simulators with large qubits to tackle high-energy physics challenges and improve atomic clocks

Quantum mechanics is very hard to simulate on a classical computer. The challenge lies in capturing all possible quantum states allowed in a given system which could be populated at once. In other words, a system of 50 quantum bits already requires 250 classical bits of information to store all possible quantum states …

Defence and Security require advanced authentication techniques including high speed, and accurate biometric identification

As attack vectors increase with the burgeoning of the Internet of Things (IoT), the Defense sector is exposed to different risks that require increasingly advanced authentication techniques. Today’s threat players are using more sophisticated social engineering tactics, credential-stuffing botnets, and account takeover tactics to pull off all sorts of attacks. …
