Marines undergo cyber electronic warfare training

Oct. 6 (UPI) — Marines with I Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group and 1st Force Reconnaissance Company received two weeks of training in tactical cyber electronic warfare recon and survey capabilities last month, the Marine Corp said Tuesday.

The training, which took place Sept. 7 to 18 at California’s Camp Pendleton, was designed to introduce the Marines to newly developed capabilities generated from U.S. Cyber Command and U.S. Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace.

USCYBERCOM and MarkPoint technologies plan to provide this training, which is intended to develop Marines’ ability to map out the digital terrain, for two years under a direct award called Rapidly Deployable Access Capabilities.

The course also supported the development and delivery of future capabilities that address the constantly changing battlefield with the Internet of Things, officials said.

“Getting to work with Marines from other aspects of the Marine Corps is a great opportunity, especially for a junior

In New Zealand, microbes are extracting gold from electronic waste

Cell phones, tablets, laptops, smartwatches: the modern world is packed with a dizzying array of gadgets that bring us connectivity, entertainment and information. Our hunger for the latest models – and the cachet that buying them brings – is such that these pieces of kit have, for some, become readily disposable.

This “throwaway” culture often means consumers are guilty of getting rid of old devices as soon as new ones come to the market, a habit that can have a significant effect on waste streams and the environment.

A recent report found that 53.6 million metric tons of e-waste was produced in 2019, with just 17.4% of this amount “officially documented as properly collected and recycled.”

The Global E-waste Statistics Partnership published the “Global E-waste Monitor 2020” report in July and described e-waste as containing harmful substances including mercury, hydrochlorofluorocarbons, chlorofluorocarbons and brominated flame retardants.

It also painted a stark

Better detection of microwave radiation will improve thermal imaging, electronic warfare, radio communications — ScienceDaily

Army-funded research developed a new microwave radiation sensor with 100,000 times higher sensitivity than currently available commercial sensors. Researchers said better detection of microwave radiation will enable improved thermal imaging, electronic warfare, radio communications and radar.

Researchers published their study in the peer-reviewed journal Nature. The team includes scientists from Harvard University, The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Pohang University of Science and Technology, and Raytheon BBN Technologies. The Army, in part, funded the work to fabricate this bolometer by exploiting the giant thermal response of graphene to microwave radiation.

“The microwave bolometer developed under this project is so sensitive that it is capable of detecting a single microwave photon, which is the smallest amount of energy in nature,” said Dr. Joe Qiu, program manager for solid-state electronics and electromagnetics, Army Research Office, an element of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory.

Researchers in China and Switzerland have developed electronic blood vessels that can be actively tuned to address subtle changes in the body after implantation. The blood vessels—made of a metal-polymer conductor membrane that’s flexible and biodegradable—mimic natural blood vessels, were conductive in in vitro experiments, and were able to effectively replace key arteries in rabbits. The research, published October 1 in the journal Matter, could overcome the limitations of conventional tissue engineered blood vessels (TEBVs), which serve as passive scaffolds, by coordinating with other electronic devices to deliver genetic material, enable controlled drug release, and facilitate the formation of new endothelial blood vessel tissue.

“We take the natural blood vessel-mimicking structure and go beyond it by integrating more comprehensive electrical functions that are able to provide further treatments, such as gene therapy and electrical stimulation,” says lead

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday proposed new rules for electronic trading platforms for U.S. Treasuries, corporate debt and municipal securities, aimed at improving transparency and operational preparedness in the world’s biggest securities market.

The proposal, which would be subject to public consultation, aims to address concerns about the shift to alternative trading systems (ATS) that trade government securities as well as the repurchase and reverse repurchase agreements on those securities.

The SEC has signaled for years that it planned to hone oversight on the fixed income market even as it put stiffer regulations in place for U.S. equity markets, which have generally been more transparent, industry advocates have said.

Under the new rules, ATS trading platforms will

PSI scientists have gained a fundamental understanding of a highly promising material that could be suited to future data storage applications. Their experiments with strontium-iridium oxide, Sr2IrO4, investigated both the magnetic and electronic properties of the material as a thin film. They also analyzed how these properties can be systematically controlled by manipulating the films. This study was made possible by sophisticated X-ray scattering, a technology where PSI researchers are amongst the world experts. The results are published today in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.


In their quest for the magnetic data storage of the future, researchers are looking for suitable materials with properties that can be customized as

The perovskite NaOsO3 has a complicated but interesting temperature-dependent metal-insulator transition (MIT). A team led by Drs. Raimundas Sereika and Yang Ding from the Center for High Pressure Science and Technology Advanced Research (HPSTAR) showed that the insulating ground state in NaOsO3 can be preserved up to at least 35 GPa with a sluggish MIT reduction from 410 K to a near room temperature and possible transformation to a polar phase. The work has been published in npj Quantum Materials.


NaOsO3 perovskite undergoes a metal-insulator transition concomitant with the onset of an antiferromagnetic long-range ordering at a Neel temperature of about 410 K, which is accompanied by a magnetic ordering without any lattice distortion.

The team carried out a combined experimental and computational study to understand the effect of external pressure on perovskite NaOsO3.
