NASA Flight Opportunities program facilitates rapid demonstration of promising technologies for space exploration

Two out of three missions to the red planet have failed. One reason there have been so many losses is that there have been so many attempts. “Mars is a favorite target,” says Dr. Firouz Naderi, manager of the Mars Program Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. To get there, …

Superconducting (SC) materials enable light-weight and energy efficient electric propulsion system for Aircrafts, ships and satellites to future interplanetary missions

A new  power revolution is going on in orbit – that of electrical propulsion for satellites. An ion thruster is a form of electric propulsion used for spacecraft propulsion. It creates thrust by accelerating ions with electricity. As the ionised particles escape from the aircraft, they generate a force moving …

DARPA SAVaNT employing atomic vapors to develop Quantum Sensors at Room Temperature

We are in midst of the second quantum revolution moving from merely computing quantum properties of systems to exploiting them. Researchers are developing new capabilities in secure communication, ultra-sensitive and high signal-to-noise physical sensing of the environment and Quantum Information Science (QIS).   Yet many scientists believe that quantum will …

Satellite Networks

A satellite is an artificial or man-made object that revolves around Earth.  Satellites are relay stations in space for the transmission of voice, video and data communications. They are ideally suited to meet the global communications requirements of military, government and commercial organizations because they provide economical, scalable and highly …

With Russia militarizing Arctic, US Implementing its National Strategy to develop winter warfare capability

The Arctic region encompasses the seas and land north of latitude 66.33° N. The Arctic Ocean is the smallest of the world’s oceans but is transforming due to its melting ice. Eight countries possess territories there: Canada, Denmark (through possession of Greenland), Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the US. …

Militaries race for Extreme cold weather vehicles for possible Arctic conflict and mountain warfare

As the Global warming is melting the Arctic ice, and opening up new shipping trade routes and real estate, intense resource competition over an estimated $1 trillion untapped reserves of oil, natural gas and minerals has started. Human activities have grown in the Arctic by almost 400 percent in the …

CRISPR or Gene editing can enable high IQ society and super strong soldiers while also enhancing threat of creation of novel Bioweapons by state and terrorists

Genome editing (also called gene editing) is a group of technologies that give scientists the ability to change an organism’s DNA. These technologies allow genetic material to be added, removed, or altered at particular locations in the genome. Several approaches to genome editing have been developed.   CRISPR is a …

USAF DEUCSI program is capitalizing on commercial LEO satellite constellations to enhance military internet tactical networking for warfighters

A communications satellite is an artificial satellite that relays and amplifies radio telecommunications signals via a transponder; it creates a communication channel between a source transmitter and a receiver at different locations on Earth. Military communications networks provide for the exchange of voice, video and data between geographically dispersed elements …

AFRL’s Golden Horde program—developing networked, collaborative, autonomous (NCA) systems like swarming drones or “fire and forget” weapons

Current weapons generally fly a pre-designated mission. If the enemy does something unexpected, preprogrammed weapons are ineffective, and additional weapons may be required to complete the mission. Networked, collaborative and semi-autonomous weapons are advantageous since they observe and react to the enemy in real time, helping weapons overcome adversary defenses …

Ethernet technology’s continuous evolution to support 5G, Autonomous vehicles, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Military

UK Strategic Command is expected to invest £1.5 billion in the next ten years to “build and sustain a ‘digital backbone’ to share and exploit vast amounts of data, through the cloud and secure networks”, according to Defence Secretary Ben Wallace MP. Embedded military systems are the foundation of this …
