Capable of flying at 65,000 feet for four days straight with its 150 foot wingspan and 450 pound payload, the Phantom Eye will surely keep any neighboring infidels in check. Powering the aircraft are dual 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engines that provide 150 horsepower each, although not stealthy, the cruising speed of approximately 150 knots is enough to conduct surveillance or just drop a few bombs on the “enemy.”more →
The massive Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) can reach the “speed of jets,” if it can keep up with the SR-71 Blackbird, that would mean 2070 mph. Having no pilots is apparently to lower risk for their men when patrolling enemy skies. It’s main purpose is to carry out long-distance surveillance between various continents around the world. Now it won’t be traveling mach 20 like DARPA’s hypersonic glider, but it could still very well go missing if satellite communications are interrupted.more →
Anyone planning on illegally crossing the North/South Korean border better think twice, the government has deployed a couple sentry robots that can sense heat and motion and deploy 40mm grenades at the target, or just fire off a couple thousand rounds of ammunition its way. Audio and video is sent back to the command center allowing them to make the call on whether or not the response requires such offensive action. Check the video below for a peak at the command UI.more →
The military group named DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) based in the Pentagon have recently announced a Request For Information (RFI) seeking iPhone and Android applications, may they be commercial or non-commercial, and to be used specifically for national security.
This request could just be to see who is out there and what they are doing, more of an intelligence operation if anything, as it states “This is an RFI issued solely for information gathering purposes” but that is custom for an RFP so highly unlikely.more →
