"A Washington Post report last year explained that they had been developed as part of a $20 million Pentagon program to augment the current fleet of military drones. It’s hoped that the small aircraft, which weigh around a pound each and are relatively inexpensive because they’re made from off-the-shelf components, could be dropped by jets to perform missions that would usually require much larger drones, like the Reaper." #perdix #reaper

"The Gartner Group projects that by the end of this year 6.4 billion devices will be “connected things”. And, with the enormous push by Google with its Google Home product, Caliber Media Group, a leading digital marketing agency, anticipates that the number of “things connected on the Internet will actually be much larger, for device interconnectivity." +Caliber Media Group +Christopher Regan +THEMATIX

The United States has criticized Beijing's build-up of military facilities in the sea and expressed concerns they could be used to restrict free movement."

"Announced to great fanfare in April, the Starshot Initiative is a $100 million research and engineering program seeking to lay the foundations for an eventual interstellar voyage. The first step involves building light-propelled “nanocrafts” that can travel up to 20 percent the speed of light. Such a spacecraft would reach the Alpha Centauri star system just over 20 years after launch. Currently, the project’s scientists are trying to demonstrate the feasibility of using powerful laser beams to propel a lightweight sail."

"The AMO budget request is divided into three subprograms: Advanced Manufacturing R&D Projects ($102.5 million), Advanced Manufacturing R&D Facilities ($129 million), and Industrial Technical Assistance ($29.5 million). The R&D Projects subprogram request includes $10 million for projects at the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at Oak Ridge National Lab, and the bulk of the budget, $40 million, would be invested in competitive solicitations." +U.S. Department of Energy #AMO
