Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) Tagging Detects Counterfeit Equipment

In order to identify counterfeit equipment and remove them from the supply chain, RDECOM ECBC scientists have developed a method to use DNA tags to identify them. A few years ago, the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee issued a report stating counterfeit components were frequently found in the supply chain, usually electronics. They noted that

RAMBO: Researchers Fire 3D Printed Ammo from 3D Printed Grenade Launcher

Researchers at the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) successfully fired the first grenade created with a 3-D printer from a grenade launcher that was produced the same way. This demonstration shows that additive manufacturing (commonly known as 3-D printing) has a potential future in weapon prototype development, which could allow engineers

ECBC Explores Use of Gels for Biological Decontamination

Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) Explores Use of Gels for Biological Decontamination ECBC researchers, working with CBI Polymer, explored how a HydroGel can be modified to decontaminate surfaces contaminated with biological agents such as spores of Bacillus anthracis, which are capable of causing anthrax disease in humans and animals.HydroGel is a biosynthetic polymer that
