DSIAC was asked to track down technical publications regarding tiny, insect robots with an emphasis on the means of control and communication among swarms of unmanned autonomous systems, as well as organizations supporting such work….


CCDC’s Road Map to Modernizing the Army: Soldier Lethality

Today’s soldiers require advanced capabilities to be effective on future battlefields. Advances in technology have produced better weapon optics, imaging devices, and body armor, as well as many other types of specialized protective and offensive gear. Body armor that could protect soldiers against rifle fire, for example, was not available during World War II, the

Astro Robo-Dog Packs an AI-Enabled “Brain” in its 3D-Printed Head

Astro utilizes a deep neural network to learn new tasks through a process of trial and errors and could find use in applications such as the detection of guns and explosives, guiding the blind, exploring hazardous environments, or assisting soldiers on the battlefield. We”ve already seen several dog-like quadruped robots, which move by walking with

A Novel Robotic Jellyfish Able to Perform 3-D Jet Propulsion and Maneuvers

As a source of inspiration, aquatic creatures such as fish, cetaceans, and jellyfish could inspire innovative designs to improve the ways that manmade systems operate in and interact with aquatic environments. Jellyfishes in nature propel themselves through their surroundings by radially expanding and contracting their bell-shaped bodies to push water behind them, which is called
