The automated Modular Integrated Protection System (MIPS) classifies incoming enemy missiles, intercepts and destroys them. To do this, the ‘brain’ identifies what the incoming threat is and decides how best to defeat the object at precisely the right moment all in superfast time. The British Army explains its forthcoming system.

Today’s emerging threats on the modern battlefield are small and inexpensive unmanned aerial and ground systems also called drones which can easily be purchased on the Internet. To counter these drones, American Company Northrop Grumman has developed a counter-UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) solution by combining three technologies including the M-ACE system, Bushmaster chain guns, and specific ammunition.

According to information published by the U.S. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) on September 16, 2022, Teams involved in DARPA’s Robotic Autonomy in Complex Environments with Resiliency (RACER) program have one experiment under their belts and will focus on even more difficult off-road landscapes at Camp Roberts, California, September 15-27. The program aims to give driverless combat vehicles off-road autonomy while traveling at speeds that keep pace with those driven by people in realistic situations.

When you think of a rocket launch, you probably imagine a glistening white cylinder emerging from a cloud of smoke and fire, then making its way into outer space. But while the sight of a launch may only last a few minutes, not many see the dedication, long hours and incredible team effort that made it all possible. “It’s not the hardware or the software–it’s the people on the launch vehicle team and their expertise that are the keys to our continued success,” said Mark Ogren, director of strategy and technology, launch vehicles, Northrop Grumman.

According to information published by the United States army on August 29, 2022, the U.S. Army Futures Command continues its modernization efforts with long-range precision fires, its cross-functional teams along with U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground are working to develop new capabilities to increase the rate of fire of the Extended Range Cannon Artillery or ERCA.

The Program Executive Office for Ground Combat Systems hosted a two-day demonstration event at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), Wash., on August 24 and 25, highlighting state-of-the-art communications and visual augmentation technology integrated into U.S. Army Stryker armored vehicles as well as Soldiers’ individual combat gear. Spc. Chandler Coats, U.S. Army, reports.

On a mid-August afternoon in central Texas, Soldiers in combat uniform gather together, preparing to engage in realistic battlefield training. With temperatures outside approaching the high 90s, one might expect the upcoming drill, situated amid a flat and dusty expanse at Fort Hood, to verge on the sweltering. Maureena Thompson, Army Futures Command, reports.

According to the U.S. Army Public Health Center, low back injuries result in more than one million lost or limited duty days for Soldiers each year. An unpowered exosuit designed to reduce the physical demands placed on soldiers is one step closer to adoption after prototypes earned passing grades from more than 100 soldiers at three Army posts. DEVCOM Public Affairs Office reports.

U.S. Marines will soon have a new state-of-the-art targeting system that increases their precision on the battlefield. The Next-Generation Handheld Targeting System, or NGHTS, is an innovative, man-portable targeting system allowing Marines to rapidly and accurately conduct target location and laser guidance during combat operations, a precious asset for the Joint Terminal Attack Controllers. Tonya SmithMarine Corps Systems Command, reports.

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded BAE Systems’ FAST Labs research and development organization a $17.5 million contract for the Generating RF with Photonic Oscillators for Low Noise (GRYPHON) program. The breakthrough technology developed through the program could enable an unprecedented combination of low noise, compact size, and frequency agility for next-generation airborne sensing and communications capabilities.
