Data Driven Design for Defense Vehicles

Image
Data is a critical asset for military organizations, but this data is only valuable if used effectively. The military vehicle sector is rapidly adapting to changing security threats and new technologies. In fact, much of Britain’s Ministry of Defense (MoD) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) procurement activity now uses cloud services, software, and technology products involved in the collection and processing of huge reams of data. However, the industry is still at the early stages of making full use of the wealth of information available to it. Designing with data means that military vehicles are able to take on the rough terrain and turbulent conditions of the real world—with maximum survivability. But, where does this data come from? Data and Connected Vehicles Connected military vehicles are generating gigabytes of data from sensor-packed functions including on-board systems that monitor a vehicle’s oil, temperature, and fuel consumption, as well as more general performanc…

Lockheed Martin Is Crafting New Stealth and Drone Tanker Concepts For The USAF

Image
With an eye toward joint operations and cooperating with foreign allies, O’Banion also told Aviation Week that Lockheed Martin was exploring ways to hybridize the actual aerial refueling equipment on any future tanker to allow a single system to provide fuel regardless of the configuration of the receiving aircraft. At present, the Air Force primarily uses the “boom” method of aerial refueling, which involves the tanker sticking a probe into another aircraft. The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, as well as many of American’s foreign partners, favor the “probe-and-drogue” system, which is also common for helicopters and tilt-rotors, where the receiving aircraft has a probe that the pilot guides into a basket on the end of a fuel link trailing behind the tanker. A tanker with some sort of common system would be able to eliminate the extra weight and bulk of having to carry, or at least being able to carry, the equipment necessary to support both refueling methods. But Lockheed Martin is als…

Magic Leap Inc. is pushing to land a contract with the U.S. Army to build augmented-reality devices for soldiers to use on combat missions, according to government documents and interviews with people familiar with the process. The contract, which could eventually lead to the military purchasing over 100,000 headsets as part of a program whose total cost could exceed $500 million, is intended to “increase lethality by enhancing the ability to detect, decide and engage before the enemy,” according to an Army description of the program. A large government contract could alter the course of the highest-profile startup working on augmented reality, at a time when prospects to produce a consumer device remain uncertain. 
Building tools to make soldiers more deadly is a far cry from the nascent consumer market for augmented…

DARPA's Gremlins to Launch & Recover Four Drones From C-130 by Next Year

Image
US Air Force F-22s and F-35s will soon launch and control recoverable attack drones from the cockpit of the plane



US Air Force F-22s and F-35s will soon launch and control recoverable attack drones from the cockpit of the plane to expand air-combat operations, test enemy air defenses, conduct long-range ISR and even deliver weapons.

This fast-approaching technology, which calls upon advanced levels of autonomous navigation, is closer to reality due of DARPA’s Gremlins program which plans to break new ground by launching – and recovering – four drones from an in-flight C-130 next year.

Air recoverable drones, slated to become operational over just the next few years, will bring a new phase of mission options enabling longer ranges, improved sensor payloads, advanced weapons and active command and control from the air.

“The team looked at how fifth generation aircraft systems like the F-35 and F-22 respond to threats, and how they could incorporate Gremlins in higher risk areas,” a DAR…

IBM files patent for blockchain-based drone fleet security

Image
Tech giant IBM is seeking to patent a system that will utilize distributed ledger technology (DLT) to address security and privacy concerns following the increasing popularity and usage of drones—both commercially and recreationally. IBM first applied for the patent in March 2017. According to the document published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the patent application is for a blockchain ledger that could be utilized to store information about unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) flights. The goal, according to the patent application, is to ensure that airspace controllers, regulatory bodies and even UAV owners can check and supervise the rising number of drones in the sky. The blocks will include data points related to drones flight patterns, including UAV location, manufacturer and model number, flying behavior, weather conditions, and even proximity to restricted zones. According to the patent application, “The data may be managed as part of a secure chain of data bl…

Airbus Helicopters adopts 3D-printing for A350 parts

Image
Airbus Helicopters is preparing serial production of A350 door components through a 3D-printing process.
The manufacturer says its facility in Donauwörth, Germany, is in the process of qualifying the production of titanium door latch shafts for the long-haul aircraft through additive layer manufacturing, with serial production scheduled to start in early 2019. Having redesigned the existing titanium latch shaft, the move represents the first large-scale production of metallic 3D-printed components, Airbus says. The first A350s with the new components are scheduled to fly in 2020. Airbus says the shaft produced through 3D printing – which uses lasers to melt titanium powder and build up the desired component layer by layer – is 45% more lightweight and delivers a 25% production cost reduction versus a conventionally manufactured component. As an A350 has 16 latch shafts, employment of the new process translates to an approximately 4kg (8.8lb) weight reduction per aircraft. Airbus Helic…

New head of Strategic Capabilities Office wants to focus on AI

Image
The Strategic Capabilities Office is under new management, and its new director intends to doubledown on the agency’s emphasis on artificial intelligence.


In his first interview since taking over the office, Chris Shank, the new SCO director, made it clear he sees artificial intelligence as a sweet spot for his office.


Roughly one third of SCO projects deal with autonomous systems, machine learning or AI in some way, Shank said, including long-range fires programs, cyber programs and some assorted with special forces.


Shank is the the group’s second leader, following Will Roper, the office’s founder who is now the Air Force’s top civilian acquisitions official. But don’t expect major changes in how the office works.


“My job is to keep momentum going,” Shank explained. “It’s a very high ops tempo group that [Roper was] able to recruit and attract into the office, in terms of working synergistic teams around that. What I am trying to do is take it from a startup organization to a long-term …

US sanctions Chinese military unit for buying Russian jets, missiles

Image
The United States expanded its sanctions war against Russia to China on Thursday, announcing punitive measures against a Chinese military organization for buying Russian fighter jets and missiles. Stepping up pressure on Moscow over its "malign activities," the US State Department said it was placing financial sanctions on the Equipment Development Department of the Chinese Ministry of Defense, and its top administrator, for its recent purchase of Russian Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets and S-400 surface-to-air missiles. Officials said it was the first time a third country has been punished under the CAATSA sanctions legislation for dealing with Russia, and signaled the Trump administration's will to risk relations with other countries in its campaign against Moscow. They also said that the US could consider similar action against other countries taking delivery of Russian fighter jets and missiles. US ally Turkey is currently talking with Moscow about an S400 deal. "The…

The Pentagon believes that the "future of war" involves mind-controlled unmanned aerial vehicles, a capability that would represent a major leap forward in the development of advanced military technology. While this may seem like something straight out of science fiction, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is taking this research seriously and has even overseen trials that could serve as the preliminary steps to developing this type of technology.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has overseen trials using mind-controlled drones for use by the military.
According to The Daily Beast, these trials were computer simulations that are the precursor to what could lead to robotics that are controlled by the mind of a human operator.

How Air Force Tankers, Transports Can Survive In High-Tech War

Image
A C-17 transport sets off defensive flares. AFA: Air Mobility Command’s tankers and transports would be big, slow targets in a major war, but without them, most of the US military can’t move. The imperative to fly fuel, supplies, and troops in the face of high-tech threats – from anti-aircraft missiles to cyber attack – is forcing AMC to change its approach to aircraft upgrades, communications networks, and what they ask airmen to think about every day, its new commander told reporters here this morning. Gen. Maryanne Miller AMC wants to stimulate innovative thinking by all its people, Gen. Maryanne Miller said, but “not so much on innovation for innovation’s sake” – they have to be “much more focused.” On what? “It needs to be on our resilient and agile response,” she said, “being able to operate in that contested, degraded, or operationally challenged threat environment.” There are a lot of buzzwords in that sentence, but they add up to a major change in mindset for strategic trans…
