Raytheon is working on a mini-bomber

by Mark R

We have reported on devices from Raytheon before, and they are usually making these very neat things that you don’t really want to see being used in a real-life war. For example, they were working on a prototype Power Loader that I never want to see being used to fight an alien, and a pain gun that I never want to be on the wrong side of. Now, they are …

Robot arm makes flight simulator more realistic

by Edwin

In order to train pilots, especially those in the air force and military, it goes without saying that using a flight simulator is far more cost effective compared to letting a rookie sit in an expensive, multi-million dollar fighter jet. After all, it certainly helps the military and air force cut down on costs should the simulated flight experience a crash – not to mention saving lives in the process. …

Cyborg based insects being researched by US engineers

by Edwin

It goes without saying that many of today’s modern inventions got their inspiration from nature – after all, it makes perfect sense, as nature is already perfected as it is. Our planes and submarines are modeled after birds and fishes, so in the next step of warfare, US engineers are working on cyborg based insects, but there is one niggling issue that has certainly kept those engineers awake – how …

Silynx C4OPS Hybrid Headset – good enough for the army, good enough for you

by Edwin

If you feel that gadgets these days need to be of a higher quality in terms of material and construction, I am quite sure that many others are in agreement with you. After all, don’t you think that many of the devices we purchase are so fragile which is why there are so many screen protectors and smartphone cases in stores? I would think that Apple makes far more money …

BAE Systems creates Adaptiv armor systems to turn objects invisible on infrared

by Mark R

If you look closely at the tank in this image, you will notice that it is covered with hexagonal-sectioned armor. The purpose of this honeycomb armor is that they dynamically adjust their heat emissions. This is BAE Systems Adaptiv armor system that allows vehicles to disguise themselves from infrared scanners. I’m sure you have seen how infrared cameras are used to see in the dark, as objects with heat look …

Second Flight of DARPA’s HTV-2 does not go as well as its first

by Mark R

DARPA is always coming out with some interesting experimental stuff, and the latest is the Falcon Hypersonic Technology 2 (HTV-2). It was just given a field test today, and it was launched aboard a Minotaur IV Lite rock from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. It was expected to glide over the Pacific Ocean and deliberately splash down near Kwajalein Atoll, 4,000 miles away at a speed of 13,000 miles …

The MAUL Semi-Automatic Shotgun for multiple Taser Shootings

by Mark R

I wonder if we are looking at a future where police officers will always use tasers instead of guns. If that is true, then taser technology will have to be much better than they are now. This is probably why the Australian firm Metal Storm and Taser International have created the MAUL. I have no idea what that is an acronym for, but what is more important is what it …

Haptic belt can guide soldiers

by Mark R

I think we all know that soldiers have to make split-second decisions in order to survive. I suppose this is why scientists are working on a haptic belt that can transmits GPS directions to soldiers out on the field. Instead of a soldier looking at a GPS handheld to figure out where he or she is going, the soldier wears a belt with haptic feedback. This belt has over eight …
