The Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) satellites built by Northrop Grumman for the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) have far surpassed their four-year on-orbit design life, completing a tenth year of space operations. Still in operation today, the STSS satellites continue to provide critical support for missile and national defense.

The Russian Strategic Missile Troops (RVSN) continue to be rearmed with the newest radiological, chemical and biological defense equipment. The modern vehicles make it possible to fulfill the whole range of tasks from reconnaissance operations to special treatment of weapons, military and specialized hardware, including autonomous launchers, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

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. The drone is equipped with an electronic system and aiming complex. Experts believe drone engagement in combat conditions will considerably increase the effectiveness of artillery and aviation, the Izvestia daily writes.

While Russia still continues to use the SVD as the primary “sniper” rifle, China developed a replacement in the QBU-88 in the 1990s. Development started around the early 1990s, with the rifle completing trials in 1996 and first reaching service with the PLA’s Hong Kong garrison in 1997.

According to U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, bleeding is the leading case of death on the battlefield. When service members receive serious wounds, they are often transported to a surgical team for treatment. These casualties often suffer from severe blood loss due to the inability of their blood to clot normally, which represent approximately 40 percent of combat casualties. Sgt. Brian Micheliche reports.
