Countries launch latest Man-Portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS) which are more lethal and smart

Man-Portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS) are surface-to-air missiles that can be carried and fired by a single individual or carried by several individuals and fired by more than one person acting as a crew. MANPADS were designed to be used by national military forces to protect their troops and facilities. With …

Superhydrophobic and Omniphobic materials for self-cleaning soldiers clothes and reduce fuel costs of Ships and Submarines

Normal solid surfaces are wetted by liquids such as water and oil. In many cases, surface wetting is undesirable due to the fact that the liquids may largely deteriorate the functionality of the surface, or cause unwanted effects. For example, evaporation of liquid droplets could leave behind chemical or dirt …

DARPA’s INTERCEPT developing adaptive medical countermeasures to protect soldiers from viral diseases like Zika & Ebola.

The viral diseases like Zika. Ebola. Dengue. Influenza. Chikungunya pose serious health threats to U.S. troops, as well as to civilian populations in the United States and around the world, says DARPA. Vaccines exist for but a few of these infectious diseases. And since these viruses have an uncanny ability …

Nanomaterials based Biosensors chips can detect Biowarfare agents (BWAs) in real time and enhance soldiers performance

The purpose of a biosensor is the detection of biologically-relevant targets such as proteins, DNA, pathogens, cells, bacteria, pollutants, hormones and enzymes. In most cases, their presence and/or concentration in samples such as blood, urine, saliva, sweat or tears can be an early indicator of disease, so that the sensor …

DARPA’s Biostastis aims to enhance soldier survivability after battlespace injuries by slowing their biological clock

Biostasis is the ability of an organism to tolerate environmental changes without having to actively adapt to them. The word is also used as a synonym for cryostasis or cryonics. It is found in organisms that live in habitats that may encounter unfavourable living conditions (i.e. drought, freezing, a change …

US DOD developing capability to Restore, Enhance, Read, Write and Transfer soldier’s memory

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has successfully created what it is calling a human memory prosthesis, a system with electrodes implanted in the brain that restores memory function using a person’s own neural codes. In a DARPA-funded pilot study, scientists successfully tested what they call a “prosthetic memory” …

Brain-computer interfaces are employed for neuroprosthetics, and now in military and defense to control robotic soldiers or fly planes & UAVs with thoughts.

New era has arrived when people  use only their thoughts to control not only themselves, but the world around them. Every action our body performs begins with a thought, and with every thought comes an electrical signal. The electrical signals can be received by the Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), which can electroencephalograph …

DARPA NESD developing high bandwidth implantable neural interfaces for controlling machines with brain and mind control of soldiers

Neural interfaces currently approved for human use squeeze a tremendous amount of information through just 100 channels, with each channel aggregating signals from tens of thousands of neurons at a time. The result is noisy and imprecise.  DARPA announced NESD in January 2016 with aim to develop to  develop an implantable …

DARPA TNT through activation of peripheral nerves speeds up learning by 40% , enable soldiers analyzing intelligence and cryptography techniques

In March 2016, DARPA launched the Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program, that seeks to advance the pace and effectiveness of a specific kind of learning—cognitive skills training—through the precise activation of peripheral nerves that can in turn promote and strengthen neuronal connections in the brain. TNT will pursue development of …
