Friday Night News Dump

How many dinky companies can alter the world's geo-political equation and balance of power? Javelin, ENVG III, F-35, IDVS..Javelin: The Tank-Killer Missile Russia Hates Most

The Javelin’s Command Launch Unit—CLU—has a sophisticated infrared sensor with multiple viewing modes, including 4x optical zoom, a 4x green-lit thermal view, and a 12x narrow-vision zoom activated for targeting. The seeker in the missile even provides a fourth 9x thermal viewing mode. The CLU can therefore serve as a handy scanning device for the infantry. The thermal viewers on the Javelin needs to be cooled off to function well, which theoretically takes 30 seconds, but might take a bit longer if you’re in Baghdad and it’s a breezy 120 degrees at noon. The system also incorporates multiple safeguards to avert or abort accidental launch.

The F-35 works, Engines, Networking and eMagin Enabled Helmet..F-35 Ascending: The Pentagon's Biggest Program Had Its Best Year Ever In 2017

If you haven't followed this saga closely, I can explain in simple terms why F-35 is a game-changer. First, the "low observable" (stealth) features built into the airframe from its inception make it nearly invisible to enemy radar. Second, its ability to fuse inputs from on-board and off-board sensors gives pilots comprehensive situational awareness. Third, its secure networking technology allows all the pilots in a strike group to share the same operational picture. Fourth, its Pratt & Whitney engine delivers unprecedented performance.

Qualcomm’s New Snapdragon 845 Improves VR and AR Performance

CPU Improvements
I am very excited to see what Snapdragon 845 will do for the XR industry, especially the standalone VR and AR solutions that are highly dependent on performance, thermals, and latency. So, what are the improvements exactly? The new Snapdragon 845 Kryo 385 features eight new CPU cores with four ARM Cortex A75 cores and four Cortex A55 cores. These CPU cores are the fastest and most efficient cores that ARM has ever produced, and Qualcomm tweaked them to improve performance and latency. This new CPU improves performance by as much as 25-30 percent which is necessary for freeing up compute resources for other tasks and ensuring high frame rates.

Every one, all around the world...

I wonder if Dr. Fan ever really understood what "stealth" meant....

The possibility is real now that the DAS and Sensor Fusion is Working Properly Thanks to the OLED Display in the New Helmet..F-35 Sensor Performs Ballistic Missile Defense Missions The F-35’s Distributed Aperture Sensor (DAS) has performed an airborne identification and trajectory-oriented target tracking of a ballistic missile in a test off Hawaii

Using early applications of artificial intelligence, computers and aircraft relied upon advanced algorithms to organize sensor information - which was then transmitted to a pilot.
As a key element of the F-35s much-discussed “sensor fusion technology,” the DAS draws upon a 360-degree sensor field of view generated by six cameras strategically placed around the aircraft. The sensor autonomously fuses data from all of the sensors into a single field of view for the pilot.
“With an automated picture, we can get the pilot everything he needs without him needing to go through every step,” Bama said.

Ok fellers, if you click on the tweet then click on the heart ...

๐Ÿ’– you will see that Mr. Garbe "liked" Mr. Kowalski's guess as to the nature of the device. Kowalski's guess was that he might have been beta-testing a prototype of a mixed reality HMD with eMagin 2kX2k displays You really think this guy doesn't know the difference and that's why he is working at Magic Leap now? Look at Garbe's timeline. He lives in a parallel universe. It frightens me that there may be more than one of him out there. He is not going to F around with a 640x480 dinosaur like a z800.

Yes, old news..Magic Leap Seeks to Raise Another $500 Million (Report)

Mixed reality hardware startup Magic Leap is in talks to raise a new $500 million round of funding, according to Bloomberg. The new financing is reportedly being led by Singapore-based Temasek Holdings, and would value the company at around $6 billion.

Magic Leap previously raised more than $1.3 billion from investors including Google, Alibaba and Qualcomm, and was valued $4.5 billion at the point of its last fundraise in early 2016. The company, which is headquartered in Florida, has been developing a pair of mixed reality glasses that would superimpose digital animation over a view of the real world.

Really? neat...

eMagin Display are FR capable, anybody know if the Kopin's Lighning is also? Want to look into that DZ?

Just a fun watch...

Last Feb but somewhat interesting, need one of those police whiteboards, suspects crossed out, circled, eventually winnowing down THE person of interest...

Elbit Systems / Helicopter HMD Solutions

Gird your loins and keep a tight asshole, you are not going to believe this...

The stress must have been excruciating leading up to the testing of the new helmet, catapult launch, new software. Now that everything checks out everybody is happily on board. Capt Crecelius here is giddy.

The "National Interest" has for months, years been beating up the F-35 program as a Non-operational money pit.

They have changed their tune and the capabilities of the aircraft are shining through to the most vocal critics. A whole new capacity for interoperability is revealed in the recent success of the DAS. And that is now possible because they shitcanned the old helmet. This description sounds like it came out the Lockheed PR Dept. but no, it's the very Brookings Institute/ Council on Foreign Relations style National Interest.

"The F-35A is operational and combat ready, and this F-35 theater security package to the Pacific Command area of responsibility is further proof of the Air Force's capability to deploy the world's most lethal fighter anywhere on the planet,” Air Force spokesman Capt. Mark Graff told Scout Warrior.
Interoperability will be a key focus of upcoming exercises, Graff said – a comment of particular relevance in light of the fact that both Japan and South Korea are F-35 Foreign Military Sales customers; Japan already has an F-35 and deliveries to South Korea are slated for 2018.
Next-generation sensors, data-links and long-range targeting technology – engineered to work in tandem across a fleet of aircraft -  are precisely the kinds of interoperability demonstrations likely to be explored. In fact, given the F-35’s Distributed Aperture System sensor (DAS), an array of six cameras covering 360-degrees around the aircraft, and the F-35s long-range Electro-Optical Targeting Systems – the aircraft is uniquely suited for ISR and data-sharing missions alongside more traditional fighter jet operations.

Pros: Trees...Grass

Dead-End Company

Process Engineer
 (Former Employee) –  
Westborough, MA 01581 – August 1, 2017
Kopin has always relied upon temporary employees in both direct and indirect labor roles because they cannot predict their output from quarter to quarter. At least half of the personnel at any given time is utterly unfamiliar with all aspects of the company. If you're not hired directly into a full-time position, don't expect them to bring you on from temporary status. Once they've got you there, you're doomed.
The building is located in a nice campus with lots of grass and trees
Good luck finding time to take a quick rest outside, unless you smoke, in which case, go out whenever you want for however long you can get away with it

I’m pleased to share that each evaluation generated excellent feedback. Both test and fleet F-35C pilots were pleased with the progress made in reducing oscillations seen during catapult shots – and test pilots reported no ‘greenglow’ present in the new OLED helmet display
