Asleep-yet-Aware electronics could revolutionize remote wireless sensors

Asleep-yet-Aware electronics could revolutionize remote wireless sensors

State-of-the-art military sensors today rely on “active electronics” to detect vibration, light, sound or other signals. That means they constantly consume power, with much of that power and time spent processing what often turns out to be irrelevant data. This […]


DARPA’s Upgraded Atlas Robot to Go Wireless

The Atlas robot was redesigned with the goal of improving power efficiency to better support battery operation. Approximately 75 percent of the robot was rebuilt; only the lower legs and feet were carried over from the original design. (DARPA image)

A total of $3.5 million in prizes will now be awarded to the top three finishers in the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC), the final event of which will be held June 5-6, 2015, at Fairplex in Pomona, Calif. The new […]


Remote Troops Closer to Having High-Speed Wireless Networks Mounted on UAVs

Remote Troops Closer to Having High-Speed Wireless Networks Mounted on UAVs

Missions in remote, forward operating locations often suffer from a lack of connectivity to tactical operation centers and access to valuable intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data. The assets needed for long-range, high-bandwidth communications capabilities are often unavailable to lower […]
