Finessing Miniaturized Magnetics into the Microelectronics Mix
A newly-announced DARPA program is betting that unprecedented on-chip integration of workhorse electronic components, such as transistors and capacitors, with less-familiar magnetic components with names like circulators and isolators, will open an expansive pathway to more capable electromagnetic systems.


Spacefaring Raytheon Technology Makes Air Travel Better, Safer
Raytheon's newest payload, a technology package that improves the availability and accuracy of Global Positioning System signals for aviation, has launched into orbit for its 12-year mission.


DARPA Goes 'Meta' with Machine Learning for Machine Learning
Popular search engines are great at finding answers for point-of-fact questions like the elevation of Mount Everest or current movies running at local theaters. They are not, however, very good at answering what-if or predictive questions—questions that depend on multiple variables, such as “What influences the stock market?” or “What are the major drivers of environmental stability?” In many cases that shortcoming is not for lack of relevant data.

Innovative Device Allows 3-D Imaging of the Breast with Less Radiation
Preliminary tests have demonstrated that a new device may enable existing breast cancer imagers to provide up to six times better contrast of tumors in the breast, while maintaining the same or better image quality and halving the radiation dose to patients.


Home Health Monitoring Devices Evolving to Deliver More Than Just Emergency Responses
Home health monitoring devices are evolving to be more mobile and sensitive to the requirements of elderly, disabled, and other vulnerable people who need to feel safe and independent. New devices that work outside the home, as well as connected movement trackers, fall detectors, and medication dispensers, are growing a market that was once limited to at-home Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS).


Electronic Sensor Detects Dead Bacteria by Measuring 'Osmoregulation'
A new type of electronic sensor that might be used to quickly detect and classify bacteria for medical diagnostics and food safety has passed a key hurdle by distinguishing between dead and living bacteria cells.
