A polymer that self-destructs? While once a fictional idea, new polymers now exist that are rugged enough to ferry packages or sensors into hostile territory and vaporize immediately upon a military mission’s completion. Continue reading “The James Bond of Polymers Can Self-Destruct When Exposed To Sunlight”
To help military and government agencies keep pace with rapidly evolving threats, Raytheon has developed a virtual software factory — a mix of physical coding spaces, cloud-based tools and software experts — to quickly deliver new capabilities to the military.

Weather can be an unrelenting force and infamously fickle. Severe weather can adversely affect the safety of aircrew and Airmen working in the elements. Fortunately, advanced radars with weather forecasting capabilities can mitigate the associated risks.
In the wake of the Viva Technology exhibition in Paris where the Ministry of the Armed Forces presented its latest innovations, the Ministry’s press briefing on May 23 came back on the development of artificial intelligence in weapons programs and in research and technology.
For the first time in aviation history, an aircraft has been manoeuvred in flight using supersonically blown air, removing the need for complex movable flight control surfaces, BAE Systems announced.
The UK Navy is testing a new capability to manage the energy demands of novel future capabilities such as the Dragonfire Laser Directed Energy Weapon (LDEW) currently being developed by Dstl & industry.
In the same spirit that drove the engineers of the Apollo 11 mission to accomplish what had seemed impossible, Raytheon’s innovators are working on world-changing technologies that push the limits of what people can do.
If you’ve ever walked through a cloud of gnats, you’ll know what a nuisance a swarm can be. On the sea, U.S. Navy vessels occasionally encounter swarms as well, in the form of tiny, less-than-friendly enemy boats.
French engineering school IMT Atlantique has created the first autonomous contact lens incorporating a flexible micro-battery.
Quantum technology will soon change our security landscape. While this technology could represent a ground-breaking solution to complex problems in a number of fields, its potential can also be disruptive.
