Northrop Grumman, Carnegie Mellon to Collaborate on Artificial Intelligence Projects

Northrop Grumman and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have formally signed a master research agreement (MRA) that will help foster innovation between the two organizations. Continue reading “Northrop Grumman, Carnegie Mellon to Collaborate on Artificial Intelligence Projects”

USAF Research Laboratory Tests New Wireless High-Noise Filtering Stethoscope

In an environment such as a hospital or doctor’s office, noise isn’t a concern; a basic stethoscope will work. But when military members are injured downrange, their first “hospital” is in the middle of a field or inside of a very loud cargo plane such as a C-130 or C-17—while it’s up in the air. Continue reading “USAF Research Laboratory Tests New Wireless High-Noise Filtering Stethoscope”
