Sixty-two of the first iteration of mounted anti-jam GPS devices were equipped into light armored vehicles in Germany over the past month, with thousands more scheduled to be installed into U.S. European Command vehicles by 2028, said Army leaders in charge of location data on future battlefields. Thomas Brading, Army News Service, reports.

The Russian army will receive the latest Orlan-30 drone in 2020, which is a new vehicle of Orlan family. It has been tested in Syria and at the Center-2019 strategic maneuvers.

While Russia still continues to use the SVD as the primary “sniper” rifle, China developed a replacement in the QBU-88 in the 1990s.

Charlie Gao reports on The National Interest.

According to U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, bleeding is the leading case of death on the battlefield.

Brian Micheliche reports.

HGH focused its latest developments against drone attacks to offer the security's industry the most advanced UAV surveillance solutions.

Pearls are inspiring a U.S. Army research project to improve military armor. By mimicking the outer coating of pearls (nacre), researchers at University at Buffalo, funded by the Army Research Office (ARO), created a lightweight plastic that is 14 times stronger and eight times lighter (less dense) than steel and ideal for absorbing the impact of bullets and other projectiles.
