Lowering the Combustion Temperature for Methane

Natural gas is the cleanest traditional fossil fuel source because it produces relatively low amounts of pollutants like carbon dioxide – a potent greenhouse gas and major contributor to climate change. But greenhouse gases and pollutants released by burning natural gas could be reduced even further with the help of advanced catalysts that help lower the temperature at which methane – the largest component of natural gas – is burned.

“The more efficiently we burn methane and the less energy we

GI’s new best friend: Army weighs replacement for M-4 carbine

Posted on

The GI’s best friend and first line of defense is getting its first overhaul in a generation.

The Army is looking to replace the M-4 carbine and M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon now used by front-line combat troops in favor of firepower better suited for the Pentagon’s top mission of countering “near peer” adversaries such as China and Russia.

The other services are watching closely. As the largest branch of the military, the Army is likely to influence the purchasing decisions of the other services.

Right now, top Army officials are evaluating three finalists for an initial contract of about 100,000

Army is working on Frankenbots with living tissue to better robot capabilities

Posted on

The thought of living tissue and machinery meshed together brings up images of grotesque cyborgs and far-future sci-fi films, but at the Army Research Laboratory a robot with living, organic muscles may not be that far off.

ARL’s Combat Capabilities Development Command is teaming up with universities in North Carolina to develop studies in bio-hybrid robotics.

The idea is just as fantastical as you may be imagining. ARL wants to fuse living tissue with cold metal to build robots that may be able to gain the agility and versatility of living creatures.

“Bio-hybrid robotics as a field is very young,”

AP Photos: Indian army patrols border with rival Pakistan

JAMMU, India — From sandbagged Indian army bunkers dug deep into the Pir Panjal mountains in the Himalayas, villages on the Pakistan-controlled side of Kashmir appear precariously close, on the other side of the Line of Control that for the past 73 years has divided the region between the two nuclear-armed rivals.

Tens of thousands of soldiers from India and Pakistan are positioned along the two sides. The apparent calm is often broken by the boom of blazing guns, with each side accusing the other of
