Military-Funded Research Creates Product to Stop Critical Bleeding; Joe Lichtenhan Quoted

StatBond

The Defense Health Agency (DHS) funds an effort to develop new medical technology designed to prevent battlefield hemorrhages without the need for wound compression. The StatBond chemical product can stop blood outflows via deep wound entry and immediate suppression. The team also considers StatBond's potential as a treatment for eye injuries, lung punctures and other cases where fluid loss is a threat.

Army Researchers See Potential of Low-Cost Tech in Dynamic Threat Training; Eric Holder Quoted

Hybrid Workforce

Army Research Laboratory (ARL) wants the service to use low-cost threat simulation technologies that train warfighters to address dynamic threats. ARL believes low-cost threat emitters can work with existing, similar technologies that support training and research at Fort Huachuca's Army Intelligence Center of Excellence and other military sites. These emitters simulate a battlefield with dynamic scenarios.

Army Research Laboratory Demos Drone’s Autonomous Landing on Unmanned Ground Vehicle; Stephen Nogar Quoted

Hybrid Workforce

Researchers with the U.S. Army developed and demonstrated a method through which unmanned aircraft systems may autonomously land on unmanned ground vehicles. The team from Army Research Laboratory (ARL) aimed to demonstrate this landing approach without reliance on GPS systems. Nogar said GPS is easily disrupted, and therefore must not be relied on by unmanned aircraft.

Army-Funded Academic Research Trials Machine Learning Approach to Correct Quantum Info Errors; Sara Gamble Quoted

Artificial Intelligence

A U.S. Army-supported research team from Louisiana State University has demonstrated the use of machine learning to correct errors found in quantum information systems. The research team tested how a neural network's self-learning and self-evolving functions can correct information used in quantum sensing and communications. This approach is designed to correct the distorted quantum information in photon-composed systems.
