C2 Architecture To Unite Army Systems Under One Roof

July 15, 2010
By Beverly Schaeffer

The IBCS system must be agile enough to operate in uncertain situations without degrading the lethality of the weapons systems. Will the system be able to achieve this goal? Read the full article and share your opinions and ideas.

A Nanoscopic Sensor With Untapped Possibilities

June 25, 2010
By Jordan Garegnani

Scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have devised a sensor that can detect substances at the nanoscopic scale. What potential practical daily uses could this technology be used for? Are there any ethical considerations for this technology? How would this affect national and public security?

Biological Sensor Detects Hazards

April 2006
By Rita Boland

Researchers are developing a portable sensor to detect hazardous biological materials more rapidly than current methods allow. The sensor has applications for government and private organizations and could be used to reduce the impact of biological weapons of mass destruction and to identify contaminants in health-related concerns.

Sensing Danger Within

April 2006
By Maryann Lawlor

Electronic bloodhounds that quickly and reliably detect dangerous substances in a closed environment will begin replacing current sensors in military facilities in the near future. The final elements of a program borne out of the need to defend warfighters against biological and chemical agents will enter the transition stage later this year. The goal is to expand protection to the rest of the military work force. This added security is part of a two-year effort to develop extremely fast and accurate sensors that are so cost-effective that they can be used on a large scale.

A Brighter Future for Battlefield Vision

April 2006
By Robert K. Ackerman

The U.S. Army is speeding next-generation imaging systems to the field in response to experiences gleaned in Afghanistan and Iraq. Adversaries waging asymmetric warfare have impelled the Army to improve existing technologies and to seek innovative new capabilities in the field of electro-optics.
