Dont worry about modern Darwinism. You don't need warfare when there's health insurance to effectively weed out those who can stay productive to society enough to pay and those who can't.

In fact, war is generally very terrible for the human gene pool because you are sending young able people to die (conscription says hi!) and those that survive usually comes back with psychological trauma or physical disability.

BAE unveils futuristic aircraft technologies:

"BAE Systems’ scientists and engineers have unveiled futuristic technologies that could be incorporated in
both military and civil aircraft in 2040 or before.

Currently at the ‘drawing board’ stage, the technologies include advanced 3D printers that could print
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) during a mission, and aircraft parts that can heal themselves in minutes.

Other possibilities include a new type of long range aircraft that divides into a number of smaller aircraft
when it reaches its destination, as well as a directed energy weapon capable of engaging missiles at the
speed of light, subsequently destroying them and protecting the people on the ground."

Modified UAVs raise concerns for infantry:

"The next big threat to American forces might be a flying IED.

Officials are worried that proliferation of drone and improvised bomb technology
means something as amateurish and cheap as a remote control plane could be
turned into a low-tech but deadly weapon.

“If a hobbyist can do it, I might be facing it and I’ve got to pay attention to it,”
said Navy Capt. Andy Arnold, chief of the capabilities assessment division of the
Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense Organization.

From July 27 through Aug. 8, he and others from JIAMDO immersed themselves in
Black Dart, an annual event that evaluates the military’s ability to counter
emerging UAS threats. The demonstration, held at Naval Base Ventura County
and Sea Range, Point Mugu, California, focused on how joint forces can fight
against a cheap, low-end UAS with deadly capabilities."

Navy’s Next Fighter Likely to Feature Artificial Intelligence:

"Artificial intelligence will likely feature prominently onboard the Pentagon’s next-
generation successors to the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and the Lockheed
Martin F-22 Raptor.

“AI is going to be huge,” said one U.S. Navy official familiar with the service’s F/A-XX
effort to replace the Super Hornet starting around 2030.

Further, while there are significant differences between the U.S. Air Force’s vision for
its F-X air superiority fighter and the Navy’s F/A-XX, the two services agree on some
fundamental aspects about what characteristics the jet will need to share."

Navy Tests New Vehicle-Mounted Laser Weapon:

"The Office of Naval Research is testing a solid-state, vehicle-mounted laser weapon
designed to incinerate a range of air and ground targets such as enemy drones,
rockets and even IEDs, service officials told Military​.com.

“Air defense covers rockets, artillery, mortars, UAVs, vehicles and IEDs – anything
you can kill with a laser. This program is focused on going after the UAV threat. As
we move into the future that broader threat set is fair game,” said Lee Mastroianni,
program manager for the so-called Ground-Based Air Defense Directed Energy
On-the-Move Program, or GBAD."

VIDEO – ONR demonstrates new swarming boat technology:

"The US Office of Naval Research (ONR) has unveiled new technology which will
enable any unmanned surface vehicle (USV) to autonomously act with others as a
swarm to attack hostile vessels. The system, known as Control Architecture for
Robotic Agent Command and Sensing, consists of sensors and software to enable
control and coordination of the vessels."

Is a "Missile Truck" the Solution to One of the Scariest Wargames Ever?:

"[The RAND study] analyzed a U.S.-China air war over Taiwan made the bold
assumption that every air-to-air missile fired from a U.S. F-22 hit a Chinese fighter
(100 percent kill rate) and that every Chinese missile missed the U.S. F-22s (0
percent kill rate). In their simulation, the United States still lost the fight. The F-22s
ran out of missiles and the Chinese fighters were able to go after vulnerable tankers
and command and control aircraft. A far more detailed simulation the following year
showed the same results. Even though U.S. F-22s were pegged with a 27-to-1
qualitative advantage over Chinese fighters, their diminished numbers and the fact
that they had to fight from long range meant the Chinese had vastly superior
numbers and won the fight."

The RAND study emphasized that improvements in forward basing infrastructure
were necessary for U.S. airpower to achieve its objective effectively.

But in a new report from CNAS, “Robotics on the Battlefield Part II: The Coming
Swarm,” Scharre offers another solution to mitigate China’s numerical advantage
– an unmanned “missile truck” fighter:"

Why are they only using F-22s in this simulation? But I suppose that's not the main point of the article.

The Billion-Dollar Game Designer Who Became a Future-War Theorist:

"Video games are huge business. For years now, digital games have earned more
than the music and film industries combined. And of all of the billion-dollar properties
in the industry, Call of Duty is one of the biggest.

For eight years, Dave Anthony steered the franchise. He wrote and directed five of
the series’ 11 titles, helping to transform a World War II shooter into a cultural
touchstone and annual entertainment event for millions of people.

After producing some of the most successful video games of all time, Anthony left the
industry. A year later, the Atlantic Council—a Washington, D.C. think tank—hired
Anthony to help predict the future of warfare.

Now the man who imagined video-game wars helps an influential think tanks talk
about real war. At least, the ways real war might evolve."

Japanese Military Developing Mobile Powered Suits:

"Japan's Ministry of Defense is developing a "highly mobile powered suit" to assist
soldiers' movements. It may not be the powered armor from Bubblegum Crisis, but
hopefully it will go some way towards using machine power to take some of the
burden off of soldiers."

Corporations versus Countries:

"Corporations keep getting bigger. Some have their own fleets of aircraft, ships, and
sometimes even submarines.

At the same time, the more problematic countries - in terms of spawning terrorism -
are the ones that are shrinking, both in population and GDP. Syria is smaller now.
Afghanistan and Iraq are smaller.

At some point I believe it is inevitable that a corporation will go to war with a small,
terror-spawning country."

The hunt for Red October gets easier. How submarine warfare is changing.:

"Improving technology could make it easier to find submarines. That's a threat to the
US fleet – but it's also an opportunity for the Pentagon, a new report says."

See:

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Militar...re-is-changing


===============================================


Transparent Sea: The Unstealthy Future Of Submarines:

"Submarines have been America’s invisible advantage since World War II. But the
oceans are getting more transparent.

New detection technologies from low-frequency sonar to flashing LEDs — plus the
big data computing power to enhance the faint signals they pick up — are making
submarines much easier to detect. The same water-penetrating wavelengths,
however, will also make it much easier for submarines to communicate with each
other."

See:

http://breakingdefense.com/2015/01/t...of-submarines/


===============================================


People like to talk about technology making the Oceans transparent, but in the
waters off Sweden and Scotland, submarines remain difficult to find.

Is this likely to change in the forseeable future?

The Navy's Gigantic Railgun Is Almost Ready For Prime Time:

"One of the most anticipated weapon systems of the last quarter century looks like
it is nearly ready for action. The Electromagnetic Railgun made its public debut this
week at the Navy's Future Force Science and Technology Expo in Washington D.C.
and it is literally a BIG hit.

Even though the EM Railgun looks massive to spectators, the truth is that it is finally
in a size that will make it applicable to the Navy's inventory of surface combatants.
With this in mind, the Railgun is set for sea trials aboard the Joint High-Speed Vessel
USNS Millinocket in 2016, although this will not be a permanent installation. There is
some serious talk about integrating the weapon onto the third DDG-1000 Zumwalt
Class Destroyer, DDG-1002 USS Lyndon B. Johnson."

In other words, F-22 pilots can finally take their turns at being Mobius 1 and fly an F-22 armed with 80 missiles .

Canadian Forces’ new rifle will use smart targeting, launches grenades



This looks eerily familiar doesn't it?

Didn't know Colt Canada was working on it, though; they tend to stick to the AR15 platform.
