U.S. military working dogs often scout areas for explosives devices and hazardous materials and assist in rescue operations, but giving dogs the necessary commands to perform these missions can put Soldiers in harm’s way. Augmented reality may change that. U.S. Army CCDC Army Research Laboratory conduct researches.

Last week, EDA hosted a virtual workshop on ‘Artificial Intelligence (AI) for defence’ which brought together over 230 industrial and experts from 20 Member States who shared insight on the impact and potential of AI for defence. With the AI work strand, EDA is entering a promising territory as it prepares to foster further integration of AI in R&T projects for defence business cases.

Sherpa 6 Inc., Littleton, Colorado, was awarded a $24,565,468 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract to develop a variety of technologies to support research and development concept prototype components for dismounted Soldier mission command systems, the Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) and Nett Warrior.

The military use of drones has grown dramatically in recent years. Unmanned aircraft of different sizes are employed in various roles. Some are employed on reconnaissance, carrying various sensors for intelligence gathering and targeting. Others carry and weapons and are used as strike platforms. Sometimes UAS are also used as ‘suicide drones’ or ‘loitering missiles,’ hitting targets of opportunity on the battlefield.

APCs and IFVs are only beginning to get additional protection and slat armor. Chief Designer of the Special Machine-Building Design Bureau (SKBM) Sergey Abdulov said at Army-2019 forum that BMP-3 IFV would soon get additional anti-cumulative bars and steel screens against RPG launchers.

For urban combat, the T-72B3 tank is equipped with a bulldozer blade, additional active protection on all its sides, and slat armor on the rear sides of the vehicle.
