U.S. Army researchers and industry partners recently published a study showing how they developed new materials and manufacturing methods to create higher-performing helmet padding that reduces the likelihood of head injury in combat and recreational helmets.

In the blink of an eye, a multi-ton truck and trailer flips on its side to reveal what's underneath. Bolted-down equipment moves out of the way in seconds instead of hours. A bird's eye view reveals answers between the slimmest of openings. Nancy Jones-Bonbrest, Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO), explains.

Russia is designing a long-range air missile to intercept maneuvering speed targets. Experts said the design is vital, as the Pentagon announced plans to test four new hypersonic munitions in 2020. The new missile will also fight modern aircraft and cruise missiles. Today, only Russia has hypersonic arms, but many countries are engaged in their creation, the Izvestia daily writes.

For many, normal facial recognition -- used in the daylight -- has become a facet of everyday life. Whether it's for identity verification to unlock a smartphone, or trivial social media camera filters -- it seems the technology is everywhere. Thomas Brading, Army News Service, explains.
