DARPA To Develop Military Aircraft Engine Capable Of Mach-5 Speed

Posted by in categories: military, space

Guessing the pressurization suits (like those in space) will have to be worn. Some of my friends who were test pilots for experimental type aircraft use to tell me how they had to push the jets to their limits and at times wear pressurization suits due to pressurization in the cockpit. So, this should be interesting.

Science Council to make clear position on lifting military-linked research ban

Posted by in categories: law, military, physics, science, security

Interesting.


The Science Council of Japan will make clear its position on military-linked research — possibly overturning a decades-long ban — by early next year, the academic group said Friday.

A committee of 15 academics from fields ranging from physics, political science to law held its first meeting to discuss whether to revise statements released by the council in 1950 and 1967 stating that the group will “never engage in military research.”

Looks to be quite fascinating…

But is anyone else annoyed by the never ending use of the word “cyber”?

The Nuclear Spear: Casaba Howitzer

Posted by in category: military

When a nuclear technology has been kept classified since the 60s, you know that it is worth looking into. The Casaba Howitzer is one configuration for a nuclear shaped charge, that can concentrate the power of an atom bomb into a narrow cone.

In this post, we’ll look at its potential configurations, its advantages and limits, and how it can be applied to both propulsion and warfare.

Origins

Real star wars? Military sets up space command centre

Posted by in categories: military, space

I keep earing that the moth balls have came off the old Star Wars program that was in place un Ronald Reagan. Should be interesting.


A MILITARY space station is being set-up to apparently monitor threats to planet Earth in outer space.

US military bosses reveal plans for holographic ‘space command’

Posted by in categories: military, satellites

The US military has revealed plans for a hi-tech holographic ‘space command’.

It would allow military bosses to see in an instant where everything from enemy satellites to orbiting space stations were.

DARPA says they system will help the monitor enemy threats in space.

DARPA Takes Giant Stride in Creating Weapons that Vaporize and Self-destruct

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

The more that DARPA works on NextGen Military equipment and machines; it feels like 1970s Star Wars is coming to life. Autonomous Jets with Death Lasers, dissovable weapons after usage, etc. Actually, this is good and bad.


DARPA’s transient technology was initially developed under an aptly named DARPA program called VAPR for “Vanishing Programmable Resources.” This program seeks electronic systems capable of physically disappearing in a controlled, triggerable manner.

“These transient electronics should have performance comparable to commercial-off-the-shelf electronics, but with limited device persistence that can be programmed, adjusted in real-time, triggered, and/or be sensitive to the deployment environment,” said DARPA.
