HACMS: Protecting Military Systems from Hackers

Today's world is a network of interconnected, embedded computer systems with components ranging in size and complexity from large supervisory control and data acquisition systems that manage physical infrastructure such as electrical grids and dams, to smaller but still critical systems inside airplanes, satellites, medical devices, computer printers and routers, and handheld devices such as cell phones and radios. Researchers and hackers have shown that these kinds of networked embedded systems are vulnerable to remote attack, and such attacks can cause not just data loss or but significant physical, economic, and strategic damage. DARPA's High-Assurance Cyber Military Systems (HACMS) program is creating technology for the construction of safe and secure cyber-physical systems. Taking a fundamentally different approach from the inadequate methods used today by the software community, the program has adopted a clean-slate, formal methods-based approach to enable semi-automated code synthesis from executable specifications. HACMS has already transitioned some of its technology to both the defense and commercial communities. In this 2017 video, HACMS software is used to protect the unmanned MH-6 Little Bird helicopter from malware-based hack attempts.

Shark Antibodies: Protecting the Warfighter

Scientists from the Naval Research Laboratory are using shark antibodies to develop new alternatives to chemical and biological threat detection tools. The lab is developing antibodies that would be used to alert for the presence of bio threats on and off the battlefield.

Multilingual Hearing Instructions

One of the challenges of occupational health testing today is language barriers — two out of every 25 people in the U.S. are not proficient in English. Benson Medical responds to this challenge by providing audio instructions and printable reports in 21 different languages for both hearing and pulmonary function testing.

Choosing the Right Footwear for Your Workplace

There are multiple factors to consider when selecting the most appropriate foot protection. Safety: Consider safety toe caps, metatarsal guards, steel plate soles, sole material and overall construction materials used. Fit: The end of the day is the best time to try on a new pair of shoes or boots; one-third of men are wearing shoes that don't fit properly. Comfort: Your feet should be immediately comfortable, you should not need a break-in period. When feet are comfortable, your knees, hips, and lower back are better aligned and supported. Be aware that no footwear can provide protection against all injuries.
