The Defense Department is seeking novel ideas to shape its future, and officials are looking to industry, small business, academia, start-ups, the public –- anyone, really –- to boost its ability to prevail against adversaries whose access to technology grows […]


New devices may soon help Soldiers detect chemicals, bio threats

This colorimetric detection assay, about the size of a postage stamp, is printed with a grid of several dozen indicator chemicals arranged in a grid of small dots.

Researchers are refining for Army use a commercial technology that will allow Soldiers to accurately and rapidly detect an array of chemical and biological hazards – from mustard agent to anthrax – and then transmit those results to their higher […]


Research team shapes future of combat rations

The Consumer Research Team at the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center has posted an online questionnaire that will help the center's Combat Feeding Directorate determine the direction it will take with future operational rations.

What kinds of rations might the military be using to feed its warfighters 15 years from now? Seeking to provide a window into the future of combat feeding, the Consumer Research Team, or CRT, working on behalf of the Combat […]
