Army researchers are working with the University of Illinois Chicago on unmanned technology for recharging drone swarms.
The university has been awarded a four-year, $8 million cooperative agreement “to develop foundational science in two critical propulsion and power technology areas for powering future families of unmanned aircraft systems,” according to a statement released by the Army Research Laboratory.
“This collaborative program will help small battery-powered drones autonomously return from military missions to unmanned ground vehicles for recharging,” the Army added. “The university is developing algorithms to enable route planning for multiple teams of small unmanned air and ground vehicles.”

The military is looking to make the process of recharging vast drone swarms as efficiently as possible by using fast, recharging batteries and wireless power transfer technologies. This, researchers say, will let multiple drones to hover over an unmanned ground vehicle and recharge

LAS CRUCES – Small unmanned aircraft system virtual workshops were held by staff from New Mexico State University’s Physical Science Laboratory in collaboration with the USDA Agricultural Research Service Scientific Computing Program Sept. 30 and Oct. 7. Scientists want to expand research opportunities, and sUAS are a way of collecting more and new data. The PSL team was asked by the USDA ARS to help guide new potential sUAS users on the best practice approaches to safely and effectively using this technology for research.
Strategic partner programs have been around the tech industry for decades, and typically involve regional-specific or industry-focused resellers and specialist firms with close ties to their business clients. The results can be good for all involved, providing end customers valuable services and solutions, and building sustainable commercial relationships for both IT vendors and their partners.
The evolution of public cloud computing is delivering new options and opportunities for partner programs, especially among IT vendors that are managing their own cloud platforms and services. IBM Cloud has been especially active in this regard, so it’s worth considering how the company’s service offerings are being leveraged by strategic partners and their customers. Here is how one IBM Cloud partner, SimpleCloud, is making the relationship work.
In business, it takes money to make money. Yet for many Black and Latinx founders, access to capital is a barrier to entry into their respective industries. Another barrier is often access to venture capitalists who come from similar backgrounds as them, who understand them, and who believe in their ideas and businesses enough to invest in them.
According to research, only 1% of VC-backed companies have Black founders, and only 2% of firms have investment team members who identify as Black.
San Francisco based technologist, Hadiyah Mujhid, has been solving for that equity problem as the founder and CEO of HBCUvc. Prominently known for building pathways for underrepresented investors and founders, HBCUvc has led the charge on developing the next generation of venture capital leaders from Historically Black Colleges and Universities through their strategic programming and partnerships.

Oluwakemi Dauda, a 20-year-old University of Michigan student, isn’t easily satisfied. When she noticed that her high school was lacking teachers and resources, so much so that the ceiling was rotting away, she took matters into her own hands and registered for a computer application class and sought support from non-profit education organization NAF to supplement her education.
That led her to create Steps to Success, an educational app for young children with severe literacy issues in Detroit. When she launched the tool in 2015, 50% of adults in Detroit were considered “functionally illiterate.”
Dauda is one of 10 women from around the world featured in New Realities,
In May Patently Apple posted a report titled “The Indian Government has dropped Contentious Clauses in their new ‘Production Linked Incentive’ Program that could be Positive for Apple.” In order to gain from the new Incentive in India, Smartphone companies had to invest in the country in order to tap into the scheme. In late June we reported on Foxconn making a huge investment in an iPhone plant in India. Last week we reported that Pegatron was going to open a plant supporting Apple’s supply chain for cases in 2021 (2 reports, 01 & 02). In August we reported that Wistron was hiring for its third iPhone plant.
Today we’re learning that the Indian government has stated that “it was approving incentives under a federal plan to boost domestic smartphone production to 16 companies, including top Apple suppliers Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron.” The companies invested as requested and
Nvidia (NVDA) – Get Report said Monday it was partnering with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) – Get Report and its artificial intelligence group to use AI for developing new drugs and vaccines, while building a supercomputer to aid researchers in their work on the coronavirus and other challenges.
