US prepares for cyber warfare with mass production of 3D-printed drones

Cyber warfare tools, guided munitions, and mass production of 3D-printed, automated drones are future military technologies that the US will be focusing on in the near future, according to a report from national security think-tank, according to the Center for […]


3D electronic printing holds promise of various applications for Soldiers

3D electronic printing holds promise of various applications for Soldiers

As researchers at Picatinny Arsenal explore the potential of 3-dimensional printing, they envision the potential to embed a radio antenna on the side of a Soldier’s helmet, or print sensors directly onto a weapon or even an article of clothing. […]


Some Military Implications of 3D Printing

Some Military Implications of 3D Printing

Not all military revolutions come with the noisiness and visibility associated with the invention of the tank, jet aircraft or the ballistic missile. In fact, some are not about weapons systems at all, or at least not directly. One of […]
