Harnessing the sun

AMSAA looks at advances in solar energy as a way to maintain the batteries powering infrequently-used Army vehicles. by Mr. Kevin Guite and Mr. Brian Frymiare For those holding onto a restored 1968 Camaro in the garage or that old Ford F100 inherited from your uncle and sitting under the backyard tree, it should not be a shock to find that the batteries in those vehicles exemplify the axiom “use it or lose it.” The Army faces a similar challenge, though one of far greater magnitude, with its vast fleet of tactical wheeled vehicles (TWVs), which make up nearly 65 percent of the Army’s total vehicle inventory.

Army scouts latest drone technology at SOCOM ThunderDrone event

There’s a pistol-packing robot that can sneak into buildings, climb stairs, send 360-degree views of the site and then lock on a target and shoot. And there are drones that work together in a swarm to relay information and then autonomously reconfigure their position to reestablish communications […]

I am required to be certified at Level III for my position. Must I first obtain certification at Level I and II?

NO. You only need to obtain Level III certification. However, keep in mind that many of the courses required for the level III certification require completion of level I and II prerequisite courses. You must complete the prerequisite courses but you are not required to actually obtain the certification at the lower levels. The certification requirements and the prerequisites for each course can be found in the DAU Interactive Catalog at <a href=”http://icatalog.dau.mil/” target=”_blank”>http://icatalog.dau.mil/</a>.   [vc_row type=”full_width_background” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/3″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/3″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][nectar_btn size=”large” button_style=”see-through-2″ hover_text_color_override=”#ffffff” icon_family=”none” url=”https://usaasc.com/web/faqs/” text=”BACK TO FAQS” […]
