Biomarkers playing vital role from gauging Warfighter Readiness to predicting infection

The term “biomarker”, a portmanteau of “biological marker”, refers to a broad subcategory of medical signs – that is, objective indications of medical state observed from outside the patient – which can be measured accurately and reproducibly. Medical signs stand in contrast to medical symptoms, which are limited to those …

Increasing cyber threats to commercial and military ground vehicles is driving new approaches and research on vehicle cybersecurity

Increasingly, today’s vehicles feature driver assistance technologies, such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and vehicle safety communications. In the future, the deployment of driver assistance technologies may result in avoiding crashes altogether, particularly crashes attributed to human drivers’ choices. These vehicles depend on connectivity and technology that runs …

DARPA’s SI3-CMD to enhance Military Decision Making through artificial intelligence and computational game theory

Military decision-making applications could include strategy development, course of action planning, tactical analyses, intelligence gathering, wargaming and simulation, deception detection, coalition formation and evolution, and others. Such domains typically involve extremely large search spaces (making even a single traversal of a complete decision tree impossible), private information that is never …

DARPA’s RADICS develops Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization Systems for cyber attacks on power grids

Across the United States, 3200 separate organizations own and operate electrical infrastructure. The widely dispersed nature of the nation’s electrical grid and associated control systems has a number of advantages, including a reduced risk that any single accident or attack could create a widespread failure from which it might take …

Detonators innovating for a wireless safer & more productive blasting and EMI/EMP immune laser detonators

Energetic materials and munitions are used across DoD in mission critical applications such as rockets, missiles, ammunition, and pyrotechnic devices. In these applications, energetic materials and munitions must perform as designed to ensure success in both training and combat operations. Explosive substances are solid or liquid substances or mixtures, which …
