This Is The USAF's "Safer" Carbon Fiber Bomb That's Also Extraordinarily Expensive

This Is The USAF's "Safer" Carbon Fiber Bomb That's Also Extraordinarily Expensive - The Drive: "For the third year in a row, the U.S. Air Force is asking for funds to buy a small number of bombs with special carbon fiber shells that make them less likely to endanger friendly forces, cause collateral damage, and accidentally kill civilians. It’s an increasingly important tool for the service to have, but it has yet to start buying them in bulk, likely in part because they’re amazingly expensive.

The Navy's Nightmare: Russia's (Almost) Super Aircraft Carrier

Image
Builders laid the keel for the Ulyanovsk in 1988, just as the Soviet empire began to break apart. The ship was such a large project that builders wouldn't have finished her until the mid '90s. Construction took place at the Black Sea Shipyard in Ukraine—often called Nikolayev South Shipyard 444.

AI Experts List the Real Dangers of Artificial Intelligence

Image
Every AI advance by the good guys is an advance for the bad guys, too.

A 100-page report written by artificial intelligence experts from industry and academia has a clear message: Every AI advance by the good guys is an advance for the bad guys, too.

The paper, titled “The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation,” calls this the “dual-use” attribute of AI, meaning the technology's ability to make thousands of complex decisions every second could be used to both help or harm people, depending on the person designing the system. The experts considered the malicious uses of AI that either currently exists or could be developed over the next five years, and broke them out into three groups: digital, physical, and political.

Turkey to develop heavy armed UAV | Jane's 360: "Turkish Defence Minister Nurettin Canikli has provided details of a new 4.5-tonne armed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) called Akinci, able to carry four missiles.

In an interview with the Yeni Safak daily on 24 February, Canikli said the Akinci would pave the way for Turkey to develop unmanned combat aircraft starting in 2027 based on the technology acquired.

He also disclosed that a Turkish Defence Industries Executive Committee meeting in January selected local company Baykar Makina to develop the Akinci based on the Bayrak armed UAV.

A contract with Baykar Makina would be signed soon, with Akinci deliveries beginning in 2021, he said." Read More


Unmanned Vehicles are Getting Bigger and Bigger. Here's What an Unmanned Helicopter Looks Like

Unmanned Vehicles are Getting Bigger and Bigger. Here's What an Unmanned Helicopter Looks Like. - DRONELIFE: "California-based UAVOS demonstrated their SURVEYOR-H at UMEX this week in Abu Dhabi, which they call the “tractor modification” of a VTOL drone.

Like a tractor – or a tank – the goal of the vehicle isn’t designed for long flight endurance or sleek speed.  At a takeoff weight of 192 lbs (87 kg), the company says that the design is geared towards durability, extended operation life, ease of use, and serviceability.  Gasoline-powered, it has a flight range of about 250 miles, with a practical ceiling of 6800 ft.  It flies for about 5 hours with a relatively small payload of 11 pounds (5 kg.)  It can handle a wide variety of climate conditions: functioning at temperatures from -31F to 122F."

The Air Force resumed flying its T-6 Texan II training aircraft Tuesday after a rash of hypoxia-like scares grounded them for nearly a month.

But while the Air Force is homing in on what led to the physiological problems, the final root cause has not yet been determined.

The 19th Air Force grounded its T-6 fleet Feb. 1 after 13 pilots at three bases experienced “unexplained physiological events” during the last week of January.

China’s Three ‘Navies’ Each Have the World’s Most Ships

Image
As a friend’s five-year-old puts it, “China has three navies: the regular navy, the police navy and the sneaky navy.” Each of these three sea forces is the world’s largest of its type by number of ships — at least by some measures.

China is truly a maritime power in its own right, and its sea forces’ numbers matter in important ways. In maritime “gray zone” operations, Beijing employs its enormous coast guard and maritime militia to further its disputed Yellow, East and South China Sea sovereignty claims using coercion short of warfare. This article, which is part one in a series, will focus on these quantitatively superior second and third sea forces.

Officials Admit Japan's Helicopter Destroyers Were Also Designed For Jets

Image
The Japanese government has consistently and vehemently denied that its hulking helicopter carriers were built with tactical jets in mind. Kyodo—Kyodo
Japanese Ministry of Defense executives have outright admitted that despite the Japanese government's past denials that the Izumo class "helicopter destroyers"were not designed to accommodate fixed-wing short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) tactical jets, they actually were designed with exactly that in mind.  The Asahi Shimbun quoted Maritime Self Defense Force sources stating the following: “It is only reasonable to design (the Izumo) with the prospect of possible changes of the circumstances in the decades ahead... We viewed that whether the Izumo should be actually refitted could be decided by the government.” USN

Is it time? Ending the Military’s Reliance on GPS

Image
Global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), specifically satellite-based position, navigation and timing (PNT) constellations have been available for decades. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) started fielding the first GNSS, Global Positioning System (GPS), in 1973 to facilitate precision guidance for targeting and delivery of munitions. GPS has since moved well beyond military use, becoming a ubiquitous part of the global environment. Governments, people, economies, and infrastructures are all fully intertwined with satellite PNT. At the same time, military, economic, and scientific experts are aware of the Achilles Heel that will always plague the system – simple interference through jamming, spoofing or meaconing. Is it time for another navigation option?

Cold War II

Image
The Cold War lasted four decades, in many ways both beginning and ending in Berlin. The good news is that it stayed cold—largely because nuclear weapons introduced a discipline missing from previous great-power rivalries—and that the United States, together with its European and Asian allies, emerged victorious, owing to sustained political, economic, and military effort that a top-heavy Soviet Union ultimately could not match.
