The increased focus on the sharing of information—whether among U.S. agencies or with international allies—has resulted in an expanded reliance on content management systems. These platforms enable collaboration on an enterprise-wide scale, letting groups across the Defense Department and NATO effectively share mission-critical information and documentation.
Engineers from Sandia National Laboratories are conducting the largest model-scale wave energy testing of its kind to harness power from one of the biggest untapped clean energy sources on Earth—and one of the hardest to capture.
Aqua Comms Ltd. announced the successful completion of a trial of Cinea’s WaveLogic 3 Extreme transmission technology on American Europe Connect, its high-capacity, transatlantic subsea cable network that connects New York to London.
Five states accounted for just over half of the $255 billion of research and development (R&D) companies paid for and performed in the United States in 2013, according to a new report from the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics.
China's Aeronautical Establishment (CAE) is teaming with NASA to study air traffic congestion and develop new ways to manage increasing civil air operations.
For all the abilities of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, there’s one particular area of intelligent behavior where machines fall short of humans—an area becoming increasingly important as AI takes on more complex tasks. They must communicate with the same fluency and articulation expected of humans so they can explain precisely what they are doing and provide interpretations of the complex data sets upon which they increasingly rely.
Several newsletters from organizations within and outside of government together can give technologists an enhanced picture of the state of their field and the issues that dominate it.
Scientists with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory discovered what officials have touted as a startling new finding for jet engine technology in their search for nanomaterials.
The not-for-profit defense and aerospace research and development firm SRC Inc. delivered to the U.S. Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) its first Agile Condor pod system, a scalable, low cost, size, weight and power (low-CSWaP) hardware architecture for on-board processing of a great deal of sensor data through high-performance embedded computing.
Adaptive space robotics, 3-D printing and autonomous communication systems are among the topics of 21 innovative research and development proposals selected by NASA to enable future solar system missions.
What happens if the Global Positioning System (GPS) that controls precision time signals goes down? The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO), which operate U.S. civilian and military time standards, respectively, have worked with two companies to identify commercial fiber optic telecommunications networks as a practical backup possibility.
Of all of the U.S. government's modernization and reform initiatives, overhauling the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is one of the longest standing and most important undertakings. This has been the case since a post-World War II era, when the Truman administration called for modernization of the department. Despite ongoing efforts, we still have a long way to go to ensure all veterans across the United States have access to high-quality health care.
Shortly after getting word of the deadly earthquake that has devastated much of central Italy, the European Space Imaging's satellite tasking operations team collected the first satellite image of the damage at 10:21 a.m. (UTC).
Shannon Sullivan, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel, learned lessons as an athlete that served him well throughout his active duty career and beyond.
Government, industry and academia are on the cusp of game-changing breakthroughs in the field of quantum physics.
Air gapping is a security measure that isolates a computer or a network so it cannot be accessed or hacked by an external entity—a useful technique that adds a layer of security. But it's not a foolproof defense method. For that reason, blogger John Halksworth shares tips in the event of a cyber attack or a data breach.
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) is investing in cutting-edge DNA testing capabilities to bolster its arsenal to solve missing persons forensic cases, among other tasks. The bureau is working with Battelle, an independent nonprofit research and development organization, and the organization’s technology that provides investigators with new tools for more in-depth DNA profiling.
A new NASA mentor-protégé agreement seeks to draw closer the day commercial spacecraft ferry humans to the International Space Station.
"With these 3-D features we've been fabricating on a nanoscale you can get some really interesting properties, but people have never been able to scale them up and see how they behave," said lead author Xiaoyu Rayne" Zheng.
The exotic realm of quantum physics offers the potential for revolutionary breakthroughs in communications and transportation.
