BAE Systems introduces the smallest multispectral sensor available for unmanned systems
 

BAE Systems has introduced one of the smallest multispectral sensors available for unmanned systems — an innovation that will help improve soldier situational awareness by reducing the time required to identify targets. On today’s battlefield, soldiers need the ability to process, understand, and engage with their environment at any time, under any condition or circumstance.

Defense White Paper on Cognitive Tactical Communication Networks

Defense White Paper on Cognitive Tactical Communication Networks
 

Cognitive Radio (CR) has been an intensive topic of research in recent years. Its main applications range from the utilization of TV white spaces to interoperability between large communication systems in all layers. Tactical communication systems that have to operate in hostile radio environments with interference, jamming and rapidly changing network topology share many common challenges with civilian cognitive radio.

Equipment specialist from United States proposes holster for M320 40mm grenade launcher
 

An equipment specialist with Product Manager Soldier Clothing and Individual Equipment, or PM SCIE, is trying to answer that question. Darren Bean has been working at the Natick Soldier Systems Center since November 2012 on the M320GL Holster Soldier Enhancement Program, or SEP. When the M320 40 mm grenade launcher began replacing the M203 in 2009, it put a new and more lethal weapon into the hands of the Soldier.

Russia to produce the first real amphibious assault rifle 5.45 mm caliber called ADS 2707132

Russia to produce the first real amphibious assault rifle 5.45 mm caliber called ADS
 

The ADS is the first assault rifle in the world to fire equally well both in and out of the water. Notably, it is as good as the latest models of Kalashnikov-type assault rifles, while being smaller in size. In 2007, a Tula-based arms producer managed to produce an amphibious assault rifle, the result of nearly 6 decades of research and development.
