The CIA’s Artifacts department recently released a profile of a robot fish named “Charlie” that was designed by the agency to gather intelligence. Though never used operationally, it is a good example of a STEM-based engineering project.


Jen Judson reported in a May 11 release by that the Pentagon’s Joint Counter-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Office has wrapped up a demonstration of high-power microwave technology capable of taking out multiple drone threats at once.


The Battelle National Biodefense Institute (BNBI) and Frederick County Public Schools yesterday announced the recipients of $50,000 in teacher challenge grants for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.


The Department of Defense wants to be able to fly autonomously in a heavily contested area, and is working with allies on a highly classified project to demonstrate the capabilities of AI-enabled drones that are designed to operate in highly contested environments.


At the recent Xponential 2022 trade show in Orlando, FL, Doosan, a South Korean UAV firm, exhibited a drone featuring extended 2-hour flight times provided by a hydrogen power system.


As we assume, the capabilities of drones continue to evolve.


As depicted in this image, in the summer of 2020 at Fort Carson, Colorado, modified Bradley Fighting Vehicles, known as Mission Enabling Technologies Demonstrators, and modified M113 tracked armored personnel carriers, or Robotic Combat Vehicles, were used for the Soldier Operational Experimentat


The aerospace industry has always been at the leading edge of change.


Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Association for Unmanned Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI) brought its annual Xponential conference to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando Florida Orlando, FL, Apr. 25-28.


The AUVSI’s Xponential 2022, held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando Florida, April 25 – 28, was attended by several thousand technology professionals and robotics enthusiasts eager to take in the exhibits of more than 500 firms specializing in robotics, AI, sensors, electronics, a


In a study published on 7 April by IEEE Transactions on Robotics, researchers demonstrate how their new rat-inspired robot, SQuRo (small-sized Quadruped Robotic Rat), can walk, crawl, and climb over objects, turn sharply and recover from falls.


The Magic of Pi – An Introduction for Kids
Archimedes was a Greek mathematician, scientist, engineer, and inventor from the town of Syracuse on the island of Sicily who lived from 287 to 212 BC. He is regarded as one of the leading scientists of classical antiquity.


Dramatic changes are coming to drone operations. The highly anticipated concept of beyond visual line of-sight (BVLOS) drone flying may finally become a reality. An Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) has issued a final report about the topic, which includes recommendations for rulemaking.


Chase Bailey, a drone pilot and trainer for Las Vegas-based Brinc Drones, has been training Ukrainian drone pilots who hope to use the aircraft in Ukrainian cities such as Kharkiv, Kherson and Dnipro, which have been the subject of ongoing Russian assaults.


In Celebration of National Robotics Week, iRobot® Launches the Create® 3 Educational Robot


In the fifteenth century, artist and engineer Leonardo da Vinci envisioned a craft that flew using a single helix-shaped propeller — the aerial screw — viewed by many as the first vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) machine ever designed.


NURO is a new class of vehicle designed to transport things, not passengers. NURO believes an autonomous vehicle can be a more nimble, narrower, and safer transportation system than vehicles driven by humans.


MAXON has provided advanced motors for myriad applications in diverse environments ranging from industrial to agricultural inspections (and not just on earth—special MAXON-modified motor drives are used on the

As China’s economy grows, it is extending its influence around the world.


RoboBurger is an artificially intelligent, self-operating and patented kitchen designed to include all of the processes of a restaurant at a fraction of the size. RoboBurger has a vending machine size footprint. It is plug and play, needing only an electric plug to function.


The science of aerodynamics is a STEM subject that is fascinating to study. Aerodynamics is part of a branch of physics called fluid dynamics, which is about studying liquids and gases that are moving, and how the mass of the moving gases can impart lift to a wing.
