  1. 3D-Printed Plastics With High Performance Electrical Circuits

    Rutgers engineers have embedded high performance electrical circuits inside 3D-printed plastics, which could lead to smaller and versatile drones and better-performing small satellites, biomedical implants and smart structures.

  2. Antenna System Developed At Lincoln Laboratory Aims To Improve Wireless Communications

    In-band full-duplex techniques applied to a phased-array antenna may provide a tenfold speedup in data transmit and receive rates while supporting a rapidly increasing number of wireless devices.

  3. Stanford Developing A Radio That Searches For Dark Matter

    A team of Stanford University researchers are on a mission to identify dark matter once and for all. But first, they’ll need to build the world’s most sensitive radio.

  4. Armoring Satellites To Survive And Operate Through Attacks

    Satellites do a lot of things — they help people navigate from one place to another, they deliver television programming, they search for new stars and exo-planets and they enable the U.S. nuclear deterrence strategy. But until recently, one thing they haven’t done — or needed to do — is defend themselves.
