DARPA is working on an airborne wireless network that can drive data bandwidth at fiber-optic network speeds – a blazing 100 gigabits per second. The effort, called the 100 Gigabit-per-second RF Backbone (aka 100G), seeks to do more than just overcome the physics that limit current radio-based data connections. The 100G initiative is searching for…

DARPA funded researchers have developed a new type of expandable foam that can stop internal bleeding long enough to get the soldier off the battlefield and into surgery. The foam chemical is injected into the chest as two separate chemicals. When the chemicals come into contact with each other, they expand, molding itself around internal…
