A new partnership will let reservists from the U.S. Army Reserve's Information Operations Command get ideas for improving military infrastructure and security information from Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute (www.sei.cmu.edu). Congress has approved $1.5 million to support a joint initiative to promote information assurance, which includes security and other factors that insure data integrity. Reservists and researchers will examine cyber vulnerabilities and ways that reservists can respond to threats.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
