India has test launched the advanced Technology Vehicle (ATV) with a solid booster carrying scramjet engines from the launch pad of the Sathish Dhawan Space Centre located in South India. The two stage/engine RH-560 sounding rocket took off on Sunday morning from the rocket port of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, various media reported Sunday
Australias Defence Science and Technology Group (DST) is partnering with industry and academia to develop a prototype robotic teaming system capable of providing autonomous perimeter and base protection capabilities for Defence. The system is an extension of Agent Oriented Software (AOS) Groups intelligent Watchdog (iWD) concept
Iran has unveiled three homemade defense technologies, including a GPS system. They comprised a one-megawatt Local Positioning System (LPS) transmitter, which Iranian defense minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said, would render the defense forces independent of the Global Positioning System (GPS), Press TV reported Wednesday
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Phase 1 contracts for its Gremlins program, which seeks to develop technologies and systems enabling aircraft to launch volleys of low-cost, reusable unmanned air systems (UASs) and safely and reliably retrieve them in mid-air. Such systems, or “gremlins,” would be deployed with a mixture of mission payloads capable of generating a variety of effects in a distributed and coordinated manner, providing US forces with improved operational flexibility at a lower cost than is possible with conventional, monolithic platforms
The US Navy's Trident II D5 Fleet Ballistic Missile has used a 3-D-printed missile component called the connector backshell during the recent test flights. The Navy recently conducted successful test flights (March 14 to 16) of three Trident II D5 Fleet Ballistic Missiles built by Lockheed Martin
DARPA is working on a developmental time machine using the peripheral nerve stimulation to enhance learning processes as a substitute for drugs to treat diseases and accelerate healing and also to control advanced prosthetic limbs and restore tactile sensation to their users. The new program Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT), 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, DARPA said in a statement Wednesday
Honeywell has developed a situational awareness system to be mounted on dogs that will enable them to send back images and video from difficult-to-reach places. The dogs can be guided to follow a certain path based on the controllers command
Boeing has developed a fuel cell using a technology called a “reversible solid oxide fuel cell” to store energy from renewable resources such as wind and solar, producing zero-emissions electricity. The fuel cell energy storage system has been delivered to the U
A new DARPA program aims to develop an implantable neural interface able to provide unprecedented signal resolution and data-transfer bandwidth between the human brain and the digital world. The interface would serve as a translator, converting between the electrochemical language used by neurons in the brain and the ones and zeros that constitute the language of information technology
North Korea may have laid ground work to test its thermonuclear weapons at its Punggye-ri test site. According to a report by South Korea's Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) Defense Command, North has already started groundwork to develop thermonuclear weapons and may have already started producing a radioactive isotope of tritium necessary to build nuclear weapons, Yonhap news agency reported Sunday
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plans to replace Global Positions Systems with Atomic Clocks with Enhanced Stability (ACES). “All of our modern communications, navigation and electronic warfare systems, as well as our intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, depend on accurate time-keeping,” said Lutwak, who will oversee the new program, called Atomic Clocks with Enhanced Stability (ACES) Wednesday in an official press release
Indian Institute of Science has bagged a research and development contract on Solar Powered Micro-grid by US military. The contract worth US $52,900 was awarded by US Pacific Air Forces, Yokota Air Base in Japan to develop solar powered micro-grid and super capacitor energy storage system, Hindustan Times news daily reported Thursday
