WASHINGTON — The U.S. Army’s new pursuit for a mid-range missile will be finalized by the Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office by the end of the year, the office’s director told Defense News in an interview ahead of the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual conference.
The service has set a goal to field the chosen missile in less than three years — by the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 — which means it can’t start from scratch, said Lt. Gen. James Thurgood.
“You might be able to take something that’s in the [science & technology] world already and do something with it,” he said. ” You might be able to take an existing joint service program and do something with it. There are lots of opportunities. I don’t think that ’23 is an unrealistic outcome.”
The RCCTO received the mission in July following a strategic fires study conducted
The latest title to get the remake treatment is 2010’s “Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit”
“Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered” will feature better graphics and new achievements
With cross-platform multiplayer introduced, players can challenge one another no matter the system they’re playing on
Criterion Games’ 2010 hit “Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit” is getting a remake for several current generation consoles, and the new iteration will come with a cross-platform element.
Dubbed “Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered,” the racing game set in fictional Seacrest County is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on Nov. 6. Nintendo Switch users will not be left behind, however, as the Switch version is slated for release on Nov. 13.
Remakes seem to be more in vogue now among video game circles. In the past few weeks alone, both “Demon’s Souls” and “Prince of Persia: The Sands
Scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory used new techniques to create a composite that increases the electrical current capacity of copper wires, providing a new material that can be scaled for use in ultra-efficient, power-dense electric vehicle traction motors.
The research is aimed at reducing barriers to wider electric vehicle adoption, including cutting the cost of ownership and improving the performance and life of components such as electric motors and power electronics. The material can be deployed in any component that uses copper, including more efficient bus bars and smaller connectors for electric vehicle traction inverters, as well as for applications such as wireless and wired charging systems.
To produce a lighter weight conductive material with improved performance,
