Brain inspired Hyperdimensional computing for extremely robust brain-computer interfaces, biosignal processing and robotics

From an engineering perspective, computing is the systematized and mechanized manipulation of patterns.  A representation is a pattern in some physical medium, for example, the configuration of ONs and OFFs on a set of switches. The algorithm then tells us how to change these patterns—how to set the switches from …

Rising role of open source software and open-source framework in Military

Open source software is free to license, the preferred choice of geeks everywhere, for rapid development for instance impromptu mapping projects to help victims of the 2010 Haiti Earthquake where open source delivered results much faster than traditional methods. “It probably would have taken a year to come up with …

DARPA’s GCA harnessing commercially available Geospatial Imagery on secure cloud-based platform for Defense Analysis

The rapid pace of new commercial satellite constellation launches has led to a corresponding increase in the amount and availability of geospatial data. While these constellations largely focus on non-military uses, their data has numerous military applications. For example, the new constellations provide optical, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), and Radio Frequency …

Countries developing Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) to transform Naval Anti-air Warfare with enhanced throughput, scalability and Interoperability

Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) is a sensor network with integrated fire control capability that is intended to significantly improve battle force air and missile defense capabilities by combining data from multiple battle force air search sensors on CEC-equipped units into a single, real-time, composite track picture (network-centric warfare). This will …

Military developing camouflage technology for countering the threat of thermal imaging cameras

Camouflage has been used to protect military equipment such as vehicles, guns, ships, aircraft and buildings as well as individual soldiers and their positions. Vehicle camouflage methods begin with paint, which offers at best only limited effectiveness.   However a new threat has emerged of Gun and Vehicle Mounted  thermal …

Wide adoption of Laser designators in Military to provide targeting for laser-guided bombs, missiles, or precision artillery munitions

One of the most challenging tasks in any aerial combat situation is to determine which assets on the ground should be targeted and which ones should be avoided. This is particularly challenging in the situation where enemy assets are camouflaged or hidden amongst civilian assets. Because of this a practice …

Militaries developing Cognitive and Adaptive Radar to counter advanced electronic threats and mitigate spectrum congestion

Today’s radars face an ever increasingly complex operational environment, intensified by the numerous types of mission/modes, number and type of targets, non-homogenous clutter and active interferers in the scene. The EM cluttered environment is a growing problem for ground- based and airborne radar systems.   This problem is becoming critical …
