86 SMT007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2019 BAE Systems to Innovate Electronic Warfare Jamming Technology for U.S. Army E BAE Systems will create advanced radar jam- ming technology that will improve air sur- vivability and mission effectiveness for U.S. Army rotary-wing aircraft and unmanned aerial systems. NASA-JPL Holds Its Annual Pumpkin-carving Contest E Suffice to say that when the scientists and engi- neers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, compete in a pumpkin- carving contest, the solar system is the limit. Now in its ninth year, the contest gives teams only one hour to carve. Why Military Industries Are Relying Heavily on Digital Automation and Artificial Intelligence E Artificial intelligence in the military sector is more appropriately called "intelligent auto- mation." All types of private and governmen- tal organizations, especially militaries, are examining ways to use digital automation, under names including artificial intelligence, machine learning, or bots. Lockheed Martin GPS Spatial Temporal Anti-jam Receiver System to Be Integrated in F-35 Modernization E Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) received a $25 million initial contract award for engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) for the GPS Spatial Temporal Anti-Jam Receiver (GSTAR) system that will be integrated into the F-35 as part of its modernization phase, also known as Block 4. NASA Sounding Rocket Technology Could Enable Simultaneous, Multi-point Measurements—First-ever Capability E NASA engineers plan to test a new avionics technology—distributed payload communi- cations—that would give scientists a never- before-offered capability in sounding rocket- based research. WWII Meteorologist Turned Material Scientist Shares Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019 E The Air Force Office of Scientific Research con- gratulates John B.
