DoD must innovate in AI by 2025 - Story

June 15, 2021

Developing artificial intelligence (AI) technology for the battlefield is a top priority for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as its adversaries continue to scale up their own AI and machine learning capabilities. Much of the DoD’s AI wizardry is spun out of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which looks to enable machines to become trusted, collaborative partners of not just warfighters but all humans.

Unmanned

Countering military drone swarm threats via directed energy - Story

May 05, 2021

As the threat of weaponized drone swarms continues to escalate for U.S. forces, defense planners are considering high-energy laser and high-power microwave countermeasures to combat the threat of these groups of unmanned aerial systems (UASs).

Avionics

Digital avionics displays from the cockpit to the helmet to the holograph - Story

March 09, 2021

The digital cockpits of military aircraft today have increased in complexity and capability by leveraging commercial processing, graphics, and navigation in open architecture designs, bringing unprecedented awareness and advantages to military pilots.

Radar/EW

Emerging threats drive RF and microwave component design trends for electronic warfare - Story

February 05, 2021

To address emerging electronic warfare (EW) threats, which are becoming increasingly more agile and moving up the spectrum, radio frequency (RF) and microwave component designs are also evolving.

Nanosats put AI-at-the-edge computing to the test in space - Story

November 16, 2020

The U.S. military is harnessing and exploring algorithms and machine learning, not just on the ground but also 300-plus miles aloft for small-form-factor space applications.

Cyber

Securing military embedded systems is a giant challenge - Story

October 08, 2020

Updating and patching security vulner­abilities to limit the attack surface for the military’s embedded systems – especially legacy ones – can be a daunting task.

Radar/EW

U.S. Navy taps advanced radar and laser tech for missile and drone threats - Story

September 03, 2020

As hypersonic missiles, stealthy drones, and myriad other threats continue to emerge, ships are adapting by bringing more sophisticated laser and radar technologies aboard.

Cyber

Are satellites a cyberwarfare target? - Story

August 07, 2020

Spoiler alert: Yes, they are – as militaries increasingly rely on satellites, especially in the age of guided munitions and hypersonic weapons, it’s becoming critical to protect space assets from cyberattacks.

Comms

New era of space-based computing is underway - Story

June 15, 2020

It’s happening: Space-based computing that can enable artificial intelligence, data analytics, cloud networking, and advanced satellite communications within a software-defined satellite architecture.

Unmanned

Sensor payloads for military unmanned systems get smarter - Story

May 06, 2020
Size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) considerations are still driving military sensor payload designs for unmanned systems, but sensors are getting much “smarter” and processing tasks are now increasingly being performed right at the payload level.
