"swan performance research institute" Discussed on National Defense Magazine Podcast

"Priority next generation in combat vehicles new autonomous platforms must be able to operate in urban environments. Where digital maps aren't reliable and be able to maneuver super off road? The lab is also looking to improve vehicle technology through the convergence of the thallady protections and autonomy to dominate ground combat programs. The army wants to see how it can leverage advances incensing machine learning and autonomy to make ground combat platforms platforms more survivable and potent. It is already pursuing active protection systems that can intercept rockets and missiles before they strike. US military vehicles additionally in the future the army might be able to use hacker official autonomous platforms as an advanced protection technology another effort the human autonomy teaming program seeks to exploit emerging opportunities. New Technology could be used for multi domain operations nations across Land Air Sea Space and cyberspace facing off against peer competitors will require multi domain command and control capabilities. The lab's director said a enabled mission. Command will be driven by advanced algorithms because speed and accuracy of decision making will become a deciding factor in dominating a particular battlespace. He said autonomous agents could also help address electron electronic warfare challenges. Pentagon officials are particularly concerned about countering Russia and China's E W capabilities. Another effort effort. The versatile tactical power and propulsion program is pursuing a multi fuel capable engine. That could be installed on a drone. The program also also seeks to aid troops. That have power hungry equipment. The lab is saying wireless power transfer capabilities to enable the Thomas Aircraft and ground vehicles vehicles to redistribute energy and fast charging batteries. They can reach full charge and just six minutes while much which of work is aligned. With the army's current modernization priorities. It is also looking far ahead to twenty thirty five and beyond the quantum want of information. Sciences program could yield far reaching technology breakthroughs in the long term quantum systems could eight with positioning navigation and timing by providing soldiers with a very precise measure. Time down to the pike second however it will require years of of effort before the army has these types of quantum capabilities meanwhile researchers are also hard at work boosting soldier performance at the army natick. Hey take soldier. Systems Center and Massachusetts scientists are developing equipment and looking for ways to enhance human performance research at the centre covers covers a variety of focus areas such as nutrition bio mechanics and neuroscience to help further these studies. The army is developing soldier and Swan Performance Research Institute. The purpose of the facility is to help. Experts conduct multidisciplinary research in one place. The building will host eleven labs for different types of performance research in areas such as human systems integration marksmanship training uh-huh and Neuro Science. The facility includes a configure -able combat maneuver lab which will allow scientists to study soldier performance in a field the environment. The natick center has developed new technology. Such as a decision aid that helps users determine the probability that someone will survive when submerged submerged in water which can be used in situations such as search and rescue missions researchers also examined nutrition requirements for for soldiers guidelines for athletes have already been developed but the army looks to see how various nutrition standards hold up in operational environments and for example scientists are looking to find the best dietary requirements for various scenarios. Their studies examined the amount of protein soldiers. Soldiers should consume and the right formulation of those proteins components. The findings from the nutrition division feed into the development of food such such as meals ready to eat. Researchers are also making improvements to the close.
