    Disruptive Tech Collides with the Military

    Posted 22 August 2017 12:00 AM by Administrator

    American scholar Clayton M. Christensen and his colleagues defined the term “disruptive innovation” in 1995 as an innovation that creates a new market and displaces an existing one. As advances in technology over the past few decades have piled one breakthrough on top of another, the term “disruptive technology” has become part of our vocabulary as well.

    While smartphones, the Internet, global positioning satellites and others technologies have disrupted both the consumer and commercial markets in many ways, this tidal wave of technology that's been building for the last few decades may be the biggest disruption military strategy, planning and tactics have ever faced. Robotics, automation, artificial intelligence and entirely new weapons are changing the face of military thinking.

    General Robert B. Brown, Commander of the U.S. Army, Pacific, explains: “The United States Armed Forces are at a crossroads, facing both institutional and operational challenges. The character of war continues to change at a quick pace, requiring military leaders to reassess some of their core beliefs.”

    Let's consider some of the technology that's behind this new thinking.

    Alternative Energy: A Disruptive Technology?

    Posted 3 August 2017 12:00 AM by Administrator

    Alternative energy, at first glance, appears to be far from disrupting our traditional sources of energy—oil, coal, gas and nuclear sources. In fact, according to British Petroleum's Statistical Review of World Energy, alternative energy consumed has grown only slightly in the past 50 years, as evidenced by the green line in the graph that hovers only slightly above zero. However, in just the past couple of years, dramatic new trends are changing the alternative energy landscape.

    Electrical Insulation Systems

    Posted 24 May 2017 12:00 AM by Administrator

    Motors, induction heaters, transformers and other devices with wound wire coils pose a problem to designers. Because they are not “perfect,” they suffer losses that show up as heat. Excessive heat can damage insulation, leading to short circuits and fire hazards. New England Wire Technologies (NEWT) has developed a technology that saves time, money and gives design engineers and manufacturers proven, UL-listed solutions for building safer wire coils.

    Medical Robotics: Powering a Revolution in Healthcare

    Posted 18 April 2017 12:00 AM by Administrator

    Medical Robotics are revolutionizing healthcare.

    Surgical robotics help surgeons perform procedures with greater precision or from remote locations. Telepresence robots let medical specialists from around the world weigh in on a patient’s diagnosis and help hospital nurses check in on patients recovering at home. Pharmacy automation uses robots to mix sterile intravenous solutions and dispense pills in pharmacy settings. Biorobots simulate or emulate living biological organisms mechanically or chemically.

    The advances in prosthetic and exoskeleton technology are especially remarkable; the newest generation of these devices can literally help the paralyzed to walk.
