Fast, faster, fastest might be an accurate description of the type of propulsion system researchers from DARPA are looking to build in the next few years. The radical research agency will next month detail what it calls the Advanced Full Range Engine which, in a nutshell, is a dual personality propulsion system that combines a turbine engine for low speed operations with a ramjet/scramjet for high speed, supersonic operations.

At issue here the GAO wrote is the weakness of “high impact” system protection because the government describes those “that hold sensitive information, the loss of which could cause individuals, the government, or the nation catastrophic harm,” and as such should be getting increased security to protect them. To be certain the threat to high impact systems is growing. The GAO said that in response to its survey of 24 key agencies 14 responded t...

The FBI has access to nearly 411 million photos through its internal unit called Facial Analysis, Comparison and Evaluation (FACE) FACE Services that can search or request to search databases owned by the Departments of State and Defense and 16 states, which use their own face recognition systems with drivers license photos chiefly. That number also includes the 30 million inside the FBI’s own face recognition system called Next Generation Ident...

“Advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT) are continuing to drive IP traffic and tangible growth in the market. Applications such as video surveillance, smart meters, digital health monitors and a host of other Machine-to-Machine services are creating new network requirements and incremental traffic increases. Globally, M2M connections are calculated to grow nearly three-fold from 4.9 billion in 2015 to 12.2 billion by 2020, representing near...

In a move that could lead to a ban on selling its products in the United States, the US International Trade Commission has ruled that Arista does in fact infringe on a number of Cisco’s technology patents. Arista now must decide if it wants to ask the US government to overturn the so-called “import ban” or ask that an appeals court toss the decision, observers say. It could also decide to build products in the US – a move that Cisco says would ...

The latest happened in April when Kepler went into “Emergency Mode” which among other things allows for priority access to ground-based communications via NASA’s Deep Space Network. NASA noted at the time that the spacecraft is nearly 75 million miles from Earth, making the communication slow. Even at the speed of light, it takes 13 minutes for a signal to travel to the spacecraft and back.

Getting a handle on cloud-based virtual operations is no easy task. Next month researchers from the Intelligence Advance Research Projects Activity (IARPA) will introduce a new program that looks to address that management concern by developing better technology to manage and secure Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments.
