NETCOM JOURNAL   

As a general officer in the United States Army, I can honestly say that any success that I have garnered during my career was derived in great part from the knowledge and professionalism of the noncommissioned officers I was fortunate enough to work with. The Army has designated 2009 as the Year of the NCO, and I’m pleased to say the focus of this issue of the NETCOM Journal is on our NCOs, the backbone of our Army. They know their mission, they know their equipment, but most importantly, they ...Read more >

EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS : BROADBAND AND THE FUTURE OF 911  

Today’s 911 system is built on an infrastructure of analog technology that does not support many of the features that most Americans expect to be part of an emergency response. Efforts to splice newer, digital technologies onto this aging infrastructure have created points of failure where a call can be dropped or misdirected, sometimes with tragic consequences. Callers to 911, however, generally assume that the newer technologies they are using to place a call are matched by the same level of ...Read more >

DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS-ARE WE THERE YET?   

In December 2007, the Defense Science Board (DSB) concluded directed energy weapons (DEW) research and development leading to the deployment of operational weapon systems had reached a near standstill. In a comprehensive report, the DSB task force observed, after many years of development, there is not a single directed energy system fielded today, and fewer programs of record exist than in 2001. The DSB analysis concluded that while, The range of potential applications is sufficient to warrant ...Read more >

WRAPPING VOICE AND DATA  

One of the drivers for wearable communications is the need to support soldier modernisation programmes like Land Warrior in the US, Land 125 in Australia and ACMS in Singapore. In this context, worn solutions are often the bearer for information to other devices such as computers, display devices and body worn weapon sensors and geolocation devices. Full and widespread deployment of such systems however, is still some way off and today the dominant use for wearable communications is for low ...Read more >

MOVING FORWARD ON SMART GRID  

A smart grid can help prevent black-outs, give consumers up-to-the-minute information on electricity usage and prepare the way for increased use of clean, renewable energy from sources such as wind and solar power. Even as our economy has been transformed by new forms of technology, our electric grid looks largely the same as it did half a century ago, said President Barack Obama during a March 19, 2009 visit to an electric car factory in Orange County, California. Today’s power grid in America ...Read more >
