The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) – forty years ago – invented with a new technology called ARPANET, which transferred digital data packets between computers through a virtual network, and replaced the conventional point-to-point telecommunication circuits. And therein lays the genesis of the Internet. DARPA was founded in the US as a response to

Five Sci-Fi Defence Tech In Existence

Defence technologies are mutating at an unbelievably exhilarating speed, faster than any other industries. The health of military technology often influences the growth of other allied or even unrelated fields. But scientists and engineers cannot be satisfied by mere drones that can fire or exoskeletons that can lift heavy weights. They are constantly striving to

USS Gerald R Ford

The US Navy’s next generation supership/aircraft carrier USS Gerald R Ford will skip an important test and be commissioned next month. As of June 1, the ship completed two sets of acceptance trials, which are tests conducted by the US Navy Board of Inspection and Survey to examine whether the vessel has been constructed in

Will Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) Survive The Test?

Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) is all the set to take Defense technology in the United States of America to an advanced level. NGCV, which is still in its conceptualization and prototyping stages, is being built as a possible, smaller, more agile replacement for the M1 Abram or M2 Bradley, which served in several wars
