  • Army scientists collaborate for stronger laser protection

    August 13, 2013

    Just as sunglasses protect the wearer's eyes from the ultraviolet rays of the summer sun, some materials protect eyes and sensors from laser devices. U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) scientists are looking at findings from university partners to determine which materials provide the most effective protection against lasers. "Bringing new levels of protection...

  • 'Long-Lived Power' could extend life for battlefield sensors

    July 31, 2013

    "Long-Lived Power" sounds like it could be an energy revolution, a revolutionary of sorts within the family of far-reaching energy solutions for the battlefield—because it uses radioisotopes. It is a power source that supports low power for years—100 microwatts of average power—according to its developers. Scientists at the U.S. Army...
