Sandia National Laboratories researchers Jon Ihlefeld (l) and David Scrymgeour use an atomic-force microscope to examine changes in a material’s phonon-scattering internal walls, before and after applying a voltage. Scientists Harness Energy from Heat

Government and academia researchers made a revolutionary breakthrough in the field of thermal energy, placing scientists on a path toward the development of technology that can both harness and store energy from heat.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter delivers a lecture, "Rewiring the Pentagon: Charting a New Path on Innovation and Cybersecurity," at Stanford University in California on Thursday. The lecture highlights the Pentagon's new cyber strategy and innovation initiatives. DOD's New Cyber Strategy Concedes Offensive Ops

The Pentagon’s new cybersecurity strategy for the first time publicly addresses the department’s option to resort to offensive cyberwarfare tactics as a means to safeguard the military’s information networks. The Department of Defense Cyber Strategy, the second in four years, guides the development of the military’s cyber forces.

Homeland Security Chief Talks Cybersecurity at Major Conference

Cybersecurity has become a mission of equal importance to the Department of Homeland Security as combating terrorism, Secretary Jeh Johnson shares at the RSA Conference 2015 in California.

Virtual smartphones running commercial mobile apps from a government-hosted data center could be the future of classified mobility. The President's Next Cellphone

Guest blogger Justin Marston tackles the reality that is the current state of classified mobility across the U.S. government—voice and basic email. It’s not what senior leaders want, he writes. They want apps, just like everyone else, but their (justified) level of paranoia has neutered most mobile devices.

Modern commercial airliners could be at risk of in-flight cybersecurity attacks through a vulnerability posed by passengers using planes’ wireless systems, warns a federal watchdog agency.

DARPA's N-ZERO program aims to develop wireless, event-driven sensors that would remain dormant until triggered by physical, electromagnetic and other activity. The technology could increase mission life, reduce battery size and reduce the maintenance costs of unattended wireless sensors. With IC 'Swimming in Sensors and Drowning in Data,' Analysts Seek Big Data Solutions

The U.S. intelligence community's leading edge in the information-age technology race, particularly in the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance domain, has put the Defense Department at a self-imposed disadvantage, marked by some warfighters behind the curve when it comes time to process and analyze the vast amount of information collected.
