Synthetic Aperture Sonar on Unmanned underwater vehicle (UUVs) and AUVs is transforming Mine Countermeasures and Undersea Warfare

SOund Navigation And Ranging or SONAR is a technique of distance measuring between detector and an object base on sound reflection. The distance can be calculated from propagation time and speed of sound in specific mediums. For military, Sonars are the eyes and ears of ships or submarines in water …

Heat-to-Power technology or thermoelectrics (TEs), pyroelectrics (PEs) to power future wearables, homes, vehicles, consumer and Military equipment

Many electrical and mechanical devices, such as car engines, produce heat as a byproduct of their normal operation. It’s called “waste heat,” and its existence is required by the fundamental laws of thermodynamics. Heat-to-power technology is also other major opportunity to make use of any waste heat exiting through engine …

DARPA’s INI developing AI algorithms of BCIs that allow troops to control unmanned systems using their brains.

Recent progress in central and peripheral neural interface technology has resulted in impressive capability demonstrations. These include the use of neural signals to control the reanimation of paralyzed muscles or to control high-dimensional prosthetic limbs, external robots, and even flight simulators. In many of these examples, sensory feedback from the …

New Wargaming trends from AI and science based to Multidomain wargames simulating Multi-Domain Battle and Operations (MDB/MDO)

A wargame, generally, is a type of strategy game which realistically simulates warfare. A military wargame, specifically, is a wargame that is used by some military to train its officers in tactical and strategic decision-making, to test new tactics and strategies, or to predict trends in future conflicts. As military …
