7312First country to sign cluster bomb treatyNorwayfirstNorway, 03 December 2008On 3 December 2008, Norway, as the sponsor of the move to outlaw cluster bombs, was the first of over 100 nations to begin signing an international convention to ban their production. Used principally as an anti-personnel weapon, there are several types of cluster bomb, but the principle is the fundamentally the same. It is a bomb that carries a significant load of smaller bomblets, about the size of a tin can. These contain hundreds of metal pieces, which cause deadly damage up to 25 metres. International opinion finds these weapons odious not only because they target personnel, but also because not all the bomblets explode. They can lie dormant for a long time after delivery, until moved or disturbed. Hence they have been responsible for the death of many innocent civilians and children. The charity Handicap International maintains that 98% of cluster bomb casualties are civilians and 27% children. The US, Russia, China, India, Pakistan and Israel have not yet signed the treaty.
7313Most advanced launch catapult for aircraft carriersElectro-Magnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS)United States01 January 2011To launch aircraft off a carrier, it is necessary to accelerate them very quickly to flying speed over the relatively short length of deck available. To do this the steam catapult has been used since 1950. In order to cope with heavier modern aircraft and generally lighter Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), which fall outside the minimum and maximum weights allowed on steam catapults, a new generation of catapult, the Electro-Magnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS), is being developed using the electro-magnetic rail gun concept. This extremely powerful and variable source of power will allow a smoother and more controlled launch than current systems allow. EMALS will require a large amount of space but will not need as many sailors to operate it, or require lots of dangerous steam pipes running through the ship – hence it will be safer and much more efficient. EMALS will equip the newest Gerald R Ford Class of aircraft carrier for the US Navy due in service around 2015.
7314Most advanced night visionThe British Ministry of Defence and BAE SYSTEMS01 January 2009The British Ministry of Defence and the defence company BAE SYSTEMS are collaborating to produce the world´s most revolutionary night sight based on the visual system, or eyes, of a tiny parasite. The night sight is a digital device worn over one eye and it enables troops to see an enemy out of the corner of that eye. It has nine lenses and offers the user 60 degrees of peripheral vision, considerably more than that of current night vision goggles. The parasite´s visual system is creates an image from a mosaic of pixels just like that of a digital camera, and it is not found in any other living creature. (The parasite in question is the Xenos peckii, which live inside wasps' abdomens. Females never leave and thus have no need for eyes. Males, however, have unusual eyes, probably to locate females living in other wasps).
