FAU Awarded $1.25 Million by U.S. Navy for Research in Support of Unmanned Marine Vehicle Platforms

Florida Atlantic University

Research for the five-year project will support autonomous unmanned marine vehicle platforms for coastal surveillance, coastal surveys, target tracking and protection of at-sea assets. The project will entail developing unmanned surface vehicles that serve as “motherships” for unmanned underwater vehicles and aerial drones, thereby enabling multi-vehicle, multi-domain capability that may serve as a mobile coastal monitoring system.

Early Life Trauma in Men Associated with Reduced Levels of Sperm MicroRNAs

Tufts University

Exposure to early life trauma can elevate risk for poor physical and mental health in individuals and their children. A new epigenetics study in both men and mice posits that some of the vulnerability in children may derive from stress-associated reductions in microRNAs in their father’s sperm.

Videoconferencing in Full Protective Gear from Labs

Homeland Security's Science & Technology Directorate

Multi-laboratory International Collaborative Environment (MICE) is a videoconferencing and multimedia network that can be used during laboratory work. Although video conferencing already exists, many labs cannot use it in real time mostly due to the special circumstances in biocontainment labs where scientists are required to wear biohazard protective gear, which keeps at bay virulent microorganisms.

The Price of Chaos: A New Model Virtually Pits New Investors Against Experienced Ones

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Variation in expertise and risk-taking behaviors among investors regularly sends markets on roller-coaster rides. Researchers describe the intricate dynamics driving a financial markets model in this week’s Chaos. Their model takes aim to simulate asset pricing when mixed groups of investors enter a market. By examining bifurcation conditions, they described transitions between different chaotic dynamical regimes. They showed that their model can reflect the nature of real markets by switching between bear and bull dynamics.
