Voices From DARPA Podcast Episode 67: Wireless Power Beaming

This 13-minute episode of the Voices From DARPA podcast series explores the possibility of an “energy web” that, much like the World Wide Web allows for near-instantaneous communication, could instantly distribute energy from remote, currently untapped sources. DARPA Program Manager Col. Paul Calhoun describes his bold POWER program aimed at leveraging power beaming for energy…

Experts in State-of-the-Art Additive Manufacturing Technologies

DSIAC contacted additive manufacturing (AM) subject matter experts (SMEs) who have been at the forefront of AM research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) and integration for their Service or have actively supported development of DoD and/or Service AM roadmaps. DSIAC worked through the SMEs, their chief scientist, and/or director to locate the appropriate government SMEs from each Service who could provide briefings on new technologies,…

Electromagnetic Shielding With Composite Materials

Military and commercial vehicles operate in varied electromagnetic (EM) environments, which affect their onboard electrical/electronic systems.  Lightning, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), and high-power microwave energy can cause detrimental effects. Although circuit architecture is used to mitigate some of these effects, a sure way is to place the sensitive electronics within a “Faraday cage.” Traditional methods rely…



The Systems and Technologies for Remote Sensing Applications Through Unmanned Aerial Systems (STRATUS) Conference will take place at the Rochester Institute of Technology, May 22-23. The special focus for this year’s conference is “hazards, environmental…

NSMMS & CRASTE Joint Symposia

NSMMS and CRASTE, two space- focused symposia, will co-locate events for the 8th year at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Rockville, MD. These co-located symposia continue their outstanding legacy in bringing together technologists, users,…

SME in Electromagnetic (EM) Weapons

Dr Andrew S. Podgorski serves as the SME in the area of electromagnetic (EM), weapons, composite protection against all EM threats and standards. His research conducted at ASR Technologies Inc. supported NATO, US Navy, US Air Force, US Strategic Defense and resulted in receiving 15 US and 20 World Patents. Two latest US Patents describe Space-Time and Pulse-Driven (STPD) arrays, that increase radiated microwave power by 20-times to Tera-Watts. Increased power reduces 30-times currently required energy for destruction of targets.
