Lockheed Martin to build Transformer TX—Autonomous flying payload carrier
New diamond and gold-based techniques let scientists measure and control the temperature inside living cells
How do you take the temperature of a cell? The familiar thermometer from a doctor's office is slightly too big considering the average human skin cell is only 30 millionths of a meter wide. But the capability ...
Novel hollow-core optical fiber to enable high-power military sensors
The intensity of light that propagates through glass optical fiber is fundamentally limited by the glass itself. A novel fiber design using a hollow, air-filled core removes this limitation and dramatically ...

Common starting point for phased array programs may save billions, years off development
Phased radio frequency (RF) arrays use numerous small antennas to steer RF beams without mechanical movement (think radar without a spinning dish). These electronics are invaluable for critical DoD applications ...
Legged Squad Support System (LS3): DARPA's four-legged robot with voice recognition (video)
(Phys.org)—Today's dismounted warfighter can be saddled with more than 100 pounds of gear, resulting in physical strain, fatigue and degraded performance. Reducing the load on dismounted warfighters has ...
National cyber range rapidly emulates complex networks
Realistically and quickly replicating globally interconnected networks to securely test new cyber tools and capabilities is no longer an issue for cyber researchers thanks to the DARPA-developed National ...
Microfabrication methods to help navigate a day without GPS
Military missions of all types need extremely accurate navigation techniques to keep people and equipment on target. That is why the Military relies on GPS or, when GPS is unavailable, precise sensors for ...
