New wearable authentication more than a "token" gesture | Article | The United States Army
Trying to make an operationally more useful wireless variant of a CAC card, probably as a wearable token if not dog tags. Tough to do that with forward deployed folks though since they would need to faraday cage their token when leaving for patrol.

Transactions of the Symposium on Space Nuclear Power Systems, (5th) Held at Albuquerque, New Mexico on January 11, 1988. | National Technical Reports Library - NTIS
The PDF contains info on wheelguns, giant counterrotating flywheel hoops in space to supply power to SDI weapons, mainly railguns/particle accelerator cannons/free electron lasers that need huge amounts of power right now. Appears to expect to be trickle charged over time by a small space nuclear reactor (SNAP? atomic teakettle?). Also has an interesting microwave power beaming scenario from a nuke in mars synchronous orbit to a ground rover, high performance radiators, including a fabric heatpipe radiator, a curie point magnetic liquid droplet radiator, and other power conversion concepts.

Weird design. Uses 5 caseless rounds with their receivers stacked as a brick, such that you eject the brick and heat. Electrically fired, very simple, but you need five barrels but they claim only one (5 bore, "single" barrel)? sorta Metaltorm in concept without tossing the barrels

Mobile Energy Depot Feasibility Study - Summary Report
So the US Army studied a mobile energy depot concept, basically a portable nuclear reactor and a synthetic fuel production facility, to cut the logistical trail of a military on the move. Emphasis on a hydrogen fuel cell logistics train with hydrogen, run via a liquid metal cooled reactor (derivative of the ANP nuclear aircraft engine reactors).

Subsidiary of Ballard Power Systems, making military fuel cells. That recent non-platinum catalyst PEM fuel cell announcement for portable applications, for an air cooled PEM fuel cell, sounds familiar. Something similar was being pursued earlier by these guys for LM/DARPA exoskeleton power system work, but suddenly went dark while LiquidPiston ramped up their PR.
