HULC Exoskeleton

Lockheed Martin begins biomechanical testing of the ruggedized HULCTM exoskeleton at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center in Natick, Mass.  Based on feedback from soldiers, the testing is expected to help shape future requirements for the HULC .

This scanning-electron-microscope image shows a stress-triggered transistor in cross section.

Nanoscale sensors have many potential applications, from detecting disease molecules in blood to sensing sound within an artificial ear. But nanosensors typically have to be integrated with bulky power sources and integrated circuits. Now researchers at Georgia Tech have demonstrated a nanoscale sensor that doesn’t need these other parts.
