The Army’s strategic vision calls for transformation to a
full-spectrum Objective Force that can project overwhelming
military power anywhere in the world on extremely short
notice. It must be agile, versatile, and lethal, achieving its
objectives through the application of dominant maneuver,
precision engagement, focused logistics, information superiority,
and highly survivable combat systems.
Armor materials are remarkable: Able to stop multiple
hits and save lives, they are essential to our military capability
in the current conflicts. But as threats have increased,
armor systems have become heavier, creating a huge burden
for the warfighter and even for combat vehicles.
Throughout its history, the Army has been manpower-intensive in most of its systems. The
combination of demographic changes (fewer young men), changed battlefield scenarios, and
advanced technologies in improved robotics, computers, and artificial intelligence (AI) suggests
both a need and an opportunity to multiply the effectiveness of Army personnel.
State-of-the-Art Antenna Technology: The 2008 Antenna Applications Symposium
From: Vol. 52 | No. 1 | January 2009 | Page 24 by Daniel Schaubert, University of Massachusetts; Jennifer Bernhard, University of Illinois; Robert Mailloux, US Air Force Research Laboratory; W. Devereux Palmer, US Army Research Office The Antenna Applications Symposium and its predecessor, the Air Force Antenna Symposium, have for more than 50 years provided a unique forum for exchange of ideas and information about the practical aspects of antenna design, development and use in systems....
Every human possesses more than one virtually infallible form of identification. Known as biometrics, examples include fingerprints, iris and retinal scans, hand geometry, and other measures of physical characteristics and personal traits. Advances in computers and related technologies have made this a highly automated process through which recognition
issues addressed will be of interest to senior military and civilian leaders with responsibilities for homeland security. The TRADOC Deputy Chief of Staff for Doctrine sponsored this research. It was conducted in the Arroyo Center’s Strategy, Doctrine, and Resources Program. The Arroyo Center is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the United States Army.
