Geocopter Presents First Unmanned Helicopter

The GC-201 from Geocopter allows the US military to use unmanned helicopters for stealth missions. Designed and built like a normal helicopter, the GC-201 features a twin gas turbine engine propulsion system, lightweight carbon fiber fuselage and full automatic takeoff, mission, and landing capabilities.

10 Military Newspapers Taken Down In A Single Hack

We all remember President Obama threatening the public a few months ago. He basically said that he would take any cyber attack against the US government very seriously and may even counter attack with force.

Well, it seems like a hacker may have found a loophole into attacking the US government, that is, by attacking Government Newspaper publications. 10 military newspapers were hacked earlier this month and just yesterday the military had admitted the hacks.

Obama Reserves Right To Bomb Hackers

Has our President been hanging around with George Bush a bit much lately? One may guess that based on what Obama has recently said. In a personal foreword (link to webpage with PDF) to document International Strategy for Cyberspace, the President claimed that the country would preserve the character of cyberspace and reduce the threats faced. President O-bomb-a reserves the right to take military action against cyber-terrorists who attempt to hack into the U.S. government.

High Tech Used For Military Dogs

Although the U.S. military has a plethora of tools at its disposal, it seems that they are also using high tech gear for K-9 units. The SEAL team that raided Osama Bin Laden brought one of these dogs that was equipped with high tech gear. Although dogs are already used by law enforcement agencies, they often do not have many “features” that make them less susceptible to injury or more likely to succeed whatever mission they are set to conquer.

In a world that doesn’t, DROID DOES. The United States Army wants every soldier to carry an Android smartphone. A prototype running Android that is called the Joint Battle Command-Platform, is being developed by a tech nonprofit, MITRE, and is undergoing tests.

The development kit supporting it is called the Mobile/Handheld Computing Environment and will be released to app creators in July, according to the U.S. army. The envisioned applications for the JBC-Platform will run a wide scale of tasks. There will definitely be…
