U.S. intelligence community researchers need technology capable of retrieving information from a multilingual repository and converting the data into English.
Nominations are now being accepted for the DON Information Management/Information Technology (IM/IT) Excellence Awards. Submissions are due by December 5.
The U.S. Army is responding to the high demand for cyber experts with a new program that could let qualified civilians be commissioned directly into the service with a rank up to colonel. The Defense Department also is looking into whether the idea could work for the other services.
A collaborative, multidisciplinary team of U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory researchers recently demonstrated that nontoxic liquid metals can create multifunctional, reconfigurable electronics and flexible power connections for nontraditional electronics.
They can extinguish shipboard fires and deliver explosive devices to kill suspected shooters, and now robots can help U.S. airmen with the 27th Special Operations Wing in New Mexico practice for intense missions, such as hostage situations.
A full-scale technology demonstration system that repeatedly captured a 400-pound Lockheed Martin Fury unmanned aerial system (UAS) accelerated to representative flight speeds via an external catapult. The test was part of the DARPA's SideArm research, which focuses on creating a self-contained, portable apparatus that can horizontally launch and retrieve UASs that weigh up to 900 pounds.
For the past several years, U.S. federal agencies have undergone a concerted effort to consolidate and streamline their data centers. As such, they’ve ramped up initiatives to drive application requirements to the cloud, used virtualization services whenever possible to improve efficiencies and deployed sensors to monitor power consumption.
The ability of warfighters to be mobile and nimble is not a luxury during combat operations. It is an absolute necessity. Staying ahead of the enemy or avoiding attack often means an entire command post must move, and quickly—a mammoth challenge if the command post relies on a wired communications network with cumbersome and costly cables and equipment.
The High-Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System (HAPLS) being developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory recently completed a significant milestone: demonstration of continuous operation of an all-diode-pumped, high-energy femtosecond petawatt laser system.
A new security approach offered by a small business illustrates the potential of the Defense Department's Defense Innovation Unit Experimental, or DIUx.
Organizations constantly are seeking new ways to address workload-specific storage demands in terms of performance and capacity while also meeting service-level agreements, response-time objectives and recovery-point objectives.
General Atomics is being awarded a $532,614,821 modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract to exercise an option for the manufacture, assembly, inspection, test and checkout of the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) delivered onboard the CVN 80 aircraft carrier, including installation and checkout spares, repairs, technical data and drawing changes.
Right at this moment, hundreds of U.S. government analysts are trying to solve the exact same problem. Without easy, trusted data sharing, these analysts, who the nation relies on to solve the most challenging of worries, cannot benefit from shared knowledge—a hurdle that adds to inefficiencies fostered by redundancies, reinforcing the public’s perception of ineffective federal bureaucracy.
Northrop Grumman Corporation is accepting applications for its engineering scholars competition, which will provide $192,000 in college scholarships this year to promising high school seniors graduating from Maryland schools interested in studying engineering, according to a news release. Additionally, the company will award 26 scholarships to students who live near company campuses in Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New York, Ohio, Utah and Virginia. Application deadline is February 4.
The Army Cyber Center of Excellence is requesting research papers that address specific areas that answer learning demands or capability gaps that inhibit operational force effectiveness or efficiency.
The U.S. Defense Department announced that in October 2016 it successfully demonstrated one of the world’s largest microdrone swarms at China Lake, California.
The security risk from personal devices is much larger than policies alone can control.
Russian agents, acting on direct orders from President Vladimir Putin, ran an organized media campaign to discredit Secretary Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to a declassified U.S. intelligence community report. However, the effort stopped short of directly affecting vote tallies.
Calling all codebreakers. The National Institute of Standards and Technology, or NIST, needs the public's help to head off what officials say is a looming threat to information security: quantum computers.
