I agree with Jack, I'm surprised that so much of what used to be considered classified details will be made publicly available.

This is really an interesting application for crowd sourcing.  Since it is a public venture, we should be able to see a little more clearly if it works (as opposed to a private company trying it).  What is really surprising is that in the past a lot of what they are sending out to everybody would have been extremely classified for the people working on it.

I'm very interested to see how effective crowdsourcing design process will be on this project.  We all have heard how military budgets can have schedule delays and cost overruns, so I would like to see if this new design technique will have an impact in this area.

DARPA on the forefront of crowdsourcing design

Looks like DARPA continues to push the envelope in terms of leveraging crowdsourcing techniques to push combat vehicle design. The agency appeared to have enjoyed some pretty strong success teaming up with Local Motors on another combat vehicle, the XC2V, which was designed and built via the crowdsourcing approach in under six months. In fact, that project led President Obama to cite Local Motors' development approach as a model for American manufacturing innovation in a speech last summer.

If we are going to be creating a network that serves us, one of its most critical nodes will need to be ourselves. This is where wearable technology comes into play.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
