Pearls are inspiring a U.S. Army research project to improve military armor. By mimicking the outer coating of pearls (nacre), researchers at University at Buffalo, funded by the Army Research Office (ARO), created a lightweight plastic that is 14 times stronger and eight times lighter (less dense) than steel and ideal for absorbing the impact of bullets and other projectiles.

The Russian army will get radars based on revolutionary photonic technology. They will identify sophisticated objects and find small targets even in a heavily jammed space.

The Defense Department wants to use AI for a wide range of applications, including predictive maintenance, image analysis, cybersecurity and training. The U.S. Army will use AI-enhanced training to improve military readiness and help troops remain ready to “fight tonight,” according to several Raytheon experts in the field.

The U.S. Army and Northrop Grumman successfully intercepted a cruise missile at an extended range during today’s flight test using the Army Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS) with Sentinel and Patriot radars and a Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) interceptor. The flight test demonstrated the value of IBCS to detect, track and engage the low-flying threat at a distance well beyond the range limitation of the current Patriot system.

Russian army Brigades of Iskander-M and Tochka-U missiles have been armed with Orlan-10 drones and quadcopters. The units are now able to better detect and destroy targets. The drones will also protect the weapons from subversion. Experts believe drones will make missile formations more autonomous and practically invulnerable for the adversary, the Izvestia daily writes.

German Company Rheinmetall has developed a new 60mm mortar for infantry and special forces. The RSG60 features innovative design and engineering characteristics which make this indirect fire system very light and easy to handle. A few quick manual adjustments turn the 15.8 kg standard infantry version into a commando mortar weighing just 6.8 kg, with no need for tools. This makes the RSG60 a two-in-one solution.
