Technological Forces – Tech Com Forces Fri, 11 Jun 2021 18:03:53 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Technological Forces – Tech Com Forces 32 32 New York State Senate first to pass landmark Right to Redress bill – but don’t go popping the champagne yet • The Register Fri, 11 Jun 2021 17:38:00 +0000

The New York State Senate has approved landmark Right to Repair legislation that requires original equipment manufacturers to provide schematics, parts, and tools to independent repair providers and consumers.

S4104, which advances the Digital Fair Repair Act, was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. In a virtual session, 51 senators approved the motion, with only 12 voting against.

Some distance remains before the bill finally becomes law. It must secure the approval of lawmakers in the lower house, the New York State Assembly, which is currently considering its own version of the bill (A7006).

The 2020 legislative session ended on Thursday. It is hoped that the A7006, which is currently being considered in committee, will be adopted during the 2021 session, which is due to meet on January 6, 2021.

Although not yet a law, the Senate’s approval of the bill has been interpreted as a victory for the Right to Reparation movement, which has won several crucial victories in recent months.

“By passing this bill, the New York Senate has proven that it is not afraid to oppose powerful interests by fighting for the right of all New Yorkers to repair and truly own their devices. “, commented Kerry Maeve Sheehan, head of US policy for iFixit.

“This is a major win for small repair businesses across the state, for the environment, for low income communities, and for anyone who just wants to be able to fix their things.”

Last November, voters in Massachusetts approved a referendum that would extend the right to repair to the auto industry. Coming into effect in 2022, the Motor Vehicle Owners’ Right to Repair Act would allow independent repair shops to access critical telematics data needed to diagnose and resolve vehicle breakdowns.

The auto industry has fought vehemently against this bill, spending millions on a marketing campaign that shamelessly turned sensational. A series of splashy ads implied that the proposed legislation would make life easier for hackers in the hope of harming drivers, and in a heavily criticized and ultimately deleted video, the bill suggested. would be a gift horse to high-tech voyeurs.

Youtube video

This was obviously nonsense and voters rightly rejected it. Nonetheless, it illustrated the levels of pressure emanating from the sectors that most strongly oppose right to redress legislation.

In particular, the consumer tech industry has repeatedly confused the right to repair with piracy, suggesting to lawmakers that this would force US companies to release the source code of proprietary software, and ultimately undermine privacy and privacy. end user safety.

These arguments are wrong. A third-party engineer doesn’t need to see the macOS source code to replace a single faulty power management chip on a MacBook Pro. But for lawmakers concerned about the decline of American technological supremacy, these arguments are compelling, even if they are cut off from reality.

If New York lawmakers choose to revisit the S4104 and A7006 at the next sitting, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the same levels of spurious lobbying. ®

Israeli military unveils mysterious prison death Wed, 09 Jun 2021 18:16:00 +0000 Israeli Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi speaks during the Israeli Air Force pilot graduation ceremony at Hatzerim Air Base in southern Israel on June 27, 2019 . REUTERS / Amir Cohen / File Photo

An Israeli military intelligence officer who died in prison had deliberately endangered a “great secret,” the senior general said on Wednesday, lifting the veil on a mystery gripping the country.

News of the officer’s death on May 17 surfaced this month. His name is prohibited from publication. The military said he served in a tech unit and was charged with security breaches that did not involve spying on behalf of foreign powers.

“He committed crimes of the highest gravity. He knowingly committed them, he committed them deliberately, for reasons that I do not know how to describe,” said Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi, chief of the forces. armed forces, in a speech rebroadcast on Israeli television.

The officer was jailed “to protect a big secret that he almost compromised, something we stopped at the last minute,” Kohavi said. The death – which the military described as following a sudden illness – was under investigation, he added.

In 2010, a member of the Israeli Mossad spy service committed suicide while in solitary confinement on suspicion of leaking secrets. Authorities did not register him under his real name while he was behind bars, leading local media to nickname him “Prisoner X”.

The deceased officer, Kohavi said, was not another “prisoner X” as the officer had been jailed under his real name and had been in contact with family, friends and other detainees.

Kohavi, a former head of military intelligence, said the officer served under him, deeming him “excellent” at the time.

The military said the officer confessed to some of the allegations against him, adding that he “acted independently, for personal reasons, without ideological, nationalist or financial motives”.

What would it really take for us to create a Dyson sphere? Mon, 07 Jun 2021 16:27:41 +0000

There are many different alien technologies depicted in books, movies, television, and comics. None have quite caught the attention of science nerds as a completely theoretical contraption known as the Dyson Sphere. There are a few different versions of this technology, so we are going to take a look at several of them, what they are, how they could be built, and analyze whether humans are capable of building such structures. First of all … how advanced should an alien civilization be before we can expect such a complex structure?

The Kardashev scale:

It is estimated that the universe has existed for almost 14 billion years. It would be extremely naive to postulate that among the hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe, the Milky Way is the only galaxy that qualifies for intelligent life. Of course, we have yet to find any evidence that there is life – even in its most basic and primordial form – beyond our solar system, but of course our technology for detecting life beyond. beyond Earth is still in its infancy.

Almost 50 years ago, a Soviet astronomer by the name of Nikolai Kardashev developed a scale – known as the Kardashev scale – which describes the possible types of intelligent life in the universe on a scale from I to III, depending on how much energy civilization could consume. Energy needs and technological prowess are intrinsically linked, according to the Kardashev scale. To quickly summarize each level:

Type 0 civilizations are described as planets (or moons) that derive their energy from organic sources, which on Earth are substances such as crude oil, wood and coal. Due to constraints in the production and use of fuel, most of these planets – like Earth – have yet to find a feasible and safe way to explore other, more distant worlds.

type I civilizations are described as extraterrestrial societies capable of harnessing all the energy of their home planets and using that energy to meet the high energy needs of their civilizations. Earth has yet to become a Type I civilization, and it is estimated that humanity would need to increase its energy threshold to more than “ 100,000 times the current level before qualifying.

type II civilizations are obviously even more advanced. This is where a civilization that could build a Dyson sphere would fall to Kardashev’s scale. These civilizations have found ways to harness the full power of a star, converting and storing all of the energy emitted by the host star to meet the needs of society as a whole. He estimated that it might take another 3,200 years before we have technology capable of catapulting Earth into a Type II civilization.

Type III civilizations are the most advanced type of society described by the Kardashev scale – and we are far, far from being able to achieve this level of energy independence. Such alien civilizations should be able to harness the power of entire galaxies, but that comes with its own set of constraints. Namely, the speed of light always applies, so these intelligent civilizations would have to develop some type of physics-defying warp engine in order to travel the distance between stars to gather their energy.

What exactly is a Dyson sphere?

Ancient and advanced civilizations would likely need an extreme amount of energy to power all of their various technologies. For this reason, science fiction writers (for example, in a book named “Star Maker” by Olaf Stapledon) were the first to devise a way to suck as much of a star’s energy output as possible. Named after Freeman J. Dyson – the very first theoretical physicist to propose such a structure could exist in an article published in the 1960s – the Dyson sphere has become one of the most popular examples of an alien megastructure.

Artistic rendering of a Dyson sphere Source: Sensitive development

So, what is a Dyson sphere? Well, in layman’s terms, it’s a huge man-made structure made up mostly of solar panels and mirrors orbiting an entire star. It is intended to capture as much energy from its star as possible.

Currently, only a small percentage of a star’s energy reaches a planet’s surface, so a Dyson sphere would theoretically allow civilization to muster a much larger amount of energy for an alien civilization. (The Sun emits about 400 sevenillion watts per second, which is about a thousand billion times our current global energy consumption).

It has also given astronomers a new way to look for signs of intelligent life. When his article was first published, astronomers scoured the skies for any signs of an intelligent species using the first radio telescopes. Dyson rightly pointed out that we would only find these signals if an alien intelligence wanted to be found. Instead, he proposed that we look for inexplicable “heat waste”, which we could detect using tools that scan the universe in infrared wavelengths.

“Such a dark object would radiate as abundantly as the star which is hidden inside, but the radiation would be in the far infrared, around 10 microns in wavelength … I propose then that a search for Point sources of infrared radiation either attempted, independently, or in conjunction with the search for man-made radio transmissions A scan of the entire sky for objects down to the 5th or 6th magnitude would be desirable. . ” Dyson wrote in his paper.

Dyson Swarm:

Since the construction of a Dyson sphere is currently well outside of our technical expertise, a variant of the Dyson sphere – known as the Dyson Swarm – has been proposed. Think of a Dyson swarm as a series of small robotic solar collectors, mirrors, living habitats and satellites, orbiting like a net around a star. it would be orbit a star close enough to collect an immense amount of energy, but without actually enclosing the star itself.

Energy would be transferred wirelessly between individual components and the Earth.

Dyson Swarm

This hypothetical technology has certain advantages and disadvantages. Namely, it would be extremely difficult to put them all into a separate orbit that wouldn’t see them collide (which could have a huge effect on surviving probes, just as space debris is a big deal for satellites in orbit. low terrestrial) or eclipse and decrease the amount of energy they absorb.

Dyson bubble:

The Dyson Bubble is sort of the bastard child of Dyson Spheres and Dyson Swarms. They are essentially similar to the Dyson Swarms in that they are made up of small robotic solar panels, suspended using huge light sails, but different in that they orbit their star from the area of ​​the golden locks – aka: the point at whichthe solar pressure of the solar wind and radiation is exactly equal to the gravitational force of the sun on the satellite “- which basically means that these objects are completely stationary and are not likely to collide with each other and cause damage to surrounding probes.

Dyson bubble
Dyson Bubble Render Source: WikimediaCommons

The downside is that the area covered by the probes must be extremely large. In fact, it is estimated to be about several factors greater than the distance between Earth and the Moon. For the scale, the moon is approximately 225,623 miles (363,104 kilometers) from Earth to its closest point. If you have placed the states at about 2.5 million miles from the sun, their total area should then be about 28 trillion square miles (72 trillion km2). Naturally, it would take a lot of resources to build just one, not to mention the hundreds needed.

Shell Dyson:

Perhaps the most well-known version of the Dyson sphere, but distinct in its own right, is what is called a Dyson Shell. Although popular, Dyson himself considered the Dyson bubble to be the least plausible of the so-called Dyson technologies.

A Dyson shell is essentially a giant all-encompassing shell, which completely surrounds the star, at a distance of about Earth’s orbit, with orbiting panels that would be linked together to create a shell. The structure would steal every bit of energy that the star generates to be used for the betterment of civilization. Civilization could then live on the inner surface of the sphere. Dyson wrote that “a hull of this thickness could be made comfortably habitable and could contain all the machinery necessary to harness the solar radiation falling to it from within.”

Not only would a Dyson shell block out 99.99% of visible light, it would take an extraordinary amount of stellar material to just build it – perhaps more material than in the entire solar system.

Also, it wouldn’t take much to disrupt the orbit of the structure. A comet or asteroid hitting one part could spiral inward and crash into the star. The forces of its own gravity could also be catastrophic, and if you wanted to generate some type of artificial gravity, it is estimated that the object would have to rotate at 0.4 the speed of light, or about 2,684 miles. (1,200 km) per second.

Cost vs benefit:

Source: Dark Attsios / Wikimedia Commons

There is currently no precise estimate of how much it would cost to build a Dyson Sphere, Ring, Swarm, or Shell, but suffice it to say that it wouldn’t be cheap. In fact, it would be one of the most important and expensive inventions of all time and there is still no guarantee that any of these technologies will not fail in a matter of weeks. Looks like we still have a ways to go before we transition to a Kardashev-scale Type I civilization.

I wonder if we’ve found one yet? Check This article!

French Naval Group says investment in PH depends on supply contracts – Manila Bulletin Sun, 06 Jun 2021 23:00:00 +0000

France’s Naval Group (NG), which has been seeking to supply military ships to the Armed Forces of the Philippines, has clearly identified the Philippines as a strong investment prospect for the future, but said it will depend on the type of contracts that ‘he can get from the government.

“We have already started to work to identify local partners and design projects that would lead to investments in the country, however, it will all depend on the decision of the Philippine authorities regarding the type of vessels, the scope of the contract, the timetable, etc. . ”Said Alain Guillou, senior executive vice president of Naval Group, in an email interview with Business Bulletin.

NG is a French-based defense company that offered to bring its expertise and technological superiority to the Philippines to meet the specific requirements of the armed forces modernization program. He specializes in military ships, but said his know-how and technologies that his local partners would gain by working with them could be applied to military and civilian ships.

When asked if he would be interested in the Hanjin Shipbuilding Plant in Subic, Guillou replied that the Naval Group would support the Philippine Navy to re-equip and adapt to whatever naval base the country chooses.

“Naval Group wishes to work with the Philippines to create the submarine force as well as strengthen the surface fleet and we will seek to develop strong local partnerships and build on local facilities and know-how,” added Guillou, responsible for all international perspectives and the development of the company’s international footprint.

According to Guillou, the French authorities have offered the Philippines a strategic government-to-government agreement, including enhanced navy-to-navy cooperation and support from the French DGA for procurement management to ensure the success of the program. .

The French offer also includes an ambitious financing plan developed to allow the country to benefit from advantageous French rates and a long-term payment plan to finance 100% of the project. “This would allow the country to finance this long-term investment without weighing down national finances, especially during this crucial phase of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Guillou.

Guillou said NG was drawn to the Philippine government’s decision to increase its naval capacity over the next few years. The Philippines has a strong development potential and has many naval defense needs due to its particular geostrategic location. This prompted NG to announce the opening of a representative office in the country in December 2020.

“We want to ‘defend the Philippines’ in developing their naval capabilities,” he said.

He noted that the creation of the submarine force is part of AFP’s modernization program which envisions strengthening the defense posture to protect the nation’s sovereignty and maritime interests against growing external threats to the waters. national.

“Naval Group has unique expertise and can help the Philippines build its submarine force. Creating a submarine force is very different from simply buying submarines, since the training, logistics and support aspects of the fleet must also be considered. We have a proven track record of developing a submarine squadron with Malaysia when we helped them create their own submarine force in the 2000s, ”he said.

But more than ships, Guillou said what Naval Group is offering to the Philippines is a strategic partnership to achieve the military and industrial autonomy the Philippines needs. It will help strengthen their maritime sovereignty and strengthen their defense posture.

Naval Group offered the Philippine Navy the Scorpene® class submarine proven at sea equipped with systems also used on board the latest French generation of SSN Barracuda. The Scorpene will also benefit from Naval Group’s widely recognized acoustic superiority. The French Navy is committed to supporting the Philippines in the development of its submarine force.

“We want to be long term partners of the Philippines and we can help even beyond the submarine project. Naval Group has an extensive portfolio of vessels, from patrol boats to frigates, and we look forward to working with the Philippine Navy to develop solutions to meet their needs, ”he added.

“We see our presence in the Philippines in the long term for the submarine project but also to help the Philippines develop their naval capabilities. Naval Group has extensive experience and a broad portfolio and we look forward to meeting the different needs of the Philippine Navy for submarines but also for surface ships. “

“Naval Group wants to become a long-term strategic partner of the Philippines and that opening the representative office in Manila is a first step. “

As such, the French military shipbuilder is already looking for local partners to transfer its know-how and technology in order to support the Philippine Navy and industry in the maintenance and life cycle of submarines. If the Philippines chooses the Naval Group for surface ships, Guillou said those ships could also be produced domestically, creating thousands of jobs.

In addition, Guillou said their submarines are well suited to the Western Philippine Sea. The Scorpene® is a reliable mid-size conventional submarine, proven at sea in operations with four navies and equipped to face the threats of today and tomorrow, ensuring its technological superiority over any other vessel in the sea. from the western Philippines. “It is the perfect tool for safeguarding the maritime sovereignty of the Philippines and carrying out a wide range of missions. It offers the exceptional performance expected of an oceanic submarine (deep diving, tactical speed, range and indiscretion rate) as well as fantastic maneuverability in shallow water, ”he added.

The Indo-Pacific region is one of the world’s most strategic areas for global economy and trade, with a huge maritime area to protect and growing tensions in the region with increasing pressure on waters and national borders. countries, said the head of NG.

“The reaffirmation of the French posture with the development in 2018 of the French defense strategy in the Indo-Pacific gave new impetus to our bilateral relations in this region where France has nearly 2 million nationals and 9 million km2 of ZEE. French Defense Minister Florence Parly recently declared that the region would be a priority for the French Presidency of the European Union, ”said Guillou.

By 2030, he said, 50 percent of the world’s submarines will operate in the Indo-Pacific. In a tense geostrategic context, many countries in the region wish to strengthen their capacities and look to France to acquire sovereignty.

France is committed to ensuring that the freedom of navigation is respected everywhere in the world. French Navy ships often navigate the region, including the western Philippine Sea.

Naval Group, which is present in over 18 countries, also has a strong presence and track record in the region, having been present in South East Asia for over 30 years.

It has partnered with Singapore-based ST Marine to design and build Formidable-class frigates since the 2000s and operates an R&D center in the country.

Vandenberg Space Force Base plans military and commercial expansion to boost local economy Fri, 04 Jun 2021 02:44:33 +0000

The future of space could be right here on the central coast, and the private and public sectors are joining forces to foster economic growth and space exploration.

On Thursday, REACH, a nonprofit with economic impact on the Central Coast, announced its partnership (Memorandum of Understanding or “MOU”) with the 30th Space Wing, Santa Barbara County, Cal Poly SLO, Deloitte and Go-Biz to develop a master plan for commercial space at Vandenberg Space Force Base.

“We can be a technology leader in one of the most beautiful places on the planet,” said Joan Hartman, District 3 supervisor for Santa Barbara County.

On more than 100,000 acres of land along the California coast, the new Vandenberg space force base supplies 16,000 jobs and generates $ 4.5 billion a year for the counties of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo.

A new plan aims to increase that amount to $ 6 billion and an additional 2,000 jobs per year over the next decade.

“The global launch market is a key indicator for the industry in general and of course Vandenberg is uniquely positioned to compete extremely effectively,” said Andrew Hackleman, COO of REACH.

A recent study found military and commercial interests in Vandenberg could lead to vast economic expansion

“California and the Western Range is a place where a lot of these newer companies and technologies want and need to be,” said Dee Dee Meyers, director of the Governor’s Office for Business and Economic Development (Go-Biz).

In addition, the base could allow private companies to enter into a proposed commercial space enterprise area.

“We envision a space that is more accessible to the community, more accessible to our partners and yet close to launch capability,” said Col. Joe Tringe, the individual mobilization reinforcement of the commander of the Vandenberg Space Launch Delta 30. “Those- These enable these proliferating constellations, which enable these imagery missions and the meteorological missions that are going to be so important at all levels. And because they are important to both DOD and business partners, we can consider sharing an infrastructure that will allow them to be launched more frequently and to be maintained.

With increased investment in industry, local leaders aspire to compete with the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

“My office is now working with the Air Force to develop policies to remove some of the barriers identified in the report that prevent much needed investments in base infrastructure and expand launch capabilities,” said the 24th district representative. , Salud Carbajal.

The plan could also foster high-skilled talent and well-paying jobs.

“This plan is a win-win,” said Cal Poly president Jeffrey Armstrong. Cal Poly, UC Santa Barbara, Allan Hancock College and Cuesta Community College benefit from access to cutting-edge technologies and experts, through entrepreneurship and internship opportunities for faculty and students, through the ‘improving vibrant local communities and creating more career opportunities for our many graduates. “

Several projects, ranging from on-base launch pad improvements to off-base roads, are already underway.

The master plan is currently in the first phase which should be completed in the coming weeks.

The $ 450 billion global space industry is expected to reach multibillion dollar levels in three decades, experts say.

The economy of the Central Coast braces for an impact once the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant decommissioned. Many are hoping that Vandenberg and the local space race will fill the economic void.

REACH has also formed a bipartisan coalition made up of several local, state and federal organizations to understand what happens after the Diablo Canyon decommissioning.

How to connect and align a dispersed workforce Thu, 03 Jun 2021 07:32:12 +0000

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase in agile work and accelerated digital transformation. This changing landscape has led to a significant increase in the number of organizations managing a dispersed workforce.

The dispersed or hybrid workforce brings many benefits, such as cost effectiveness – as people become consumers of space rather than owners of it – allowing organizations to reduce their building stock. Diversifying talent pools is also made easier, as geography and accessibility are no longer barriers to recruitment and increased employee engagement and satisfaction when working remotely are widely reported.

While such agility brings benefits, many organizations are increasingly looking for effective solutions to create a more connected, resilient and engaged workforce, while increasing efficiency and increasing productivity at the same time.

A 2021 study by Financebuzz – – found that almost half of remote workers felt isolated and said they had difficulty building relationships with their colleagues. Organizations quickly recognized that connectivity is vital, especially for a dispersed workforce, which requires innovative solutions to replace traditional offerings, such as team building days and catch-ups at the water cooler. Connectivity is a key factor in ensuring that the corporate culture is aligned and embedded in dispersed teams and geographic locations and can significantly alleviate feelings of isolation, facilitate the sharing of knowledge and best practices, and increase resilience.

The key to connectivity and alignment in the new world of work is effective communication. Implementing the right digital platform to drive communication and collaboration is key to empowering and developing valuable talent. An effective platform, when properly used, integrated into a company’s digital culture, will allow workers to stay connected, engaged and informed, wherever they are.

Dispersed employees often miss the collaborative opportunities enjoyed by those in a “brick and mortar” environment. While video calls and the ability to share screens can go some way to bridge the gap, intuitive digital collaboration platforms are the key to unlocking collaboration and increasing productivity in dispersed teams.

Increasingly, organizations are looking for solutions that can enable them to respond with agility to the changing landscape. Businesses are facing an increase in remote and dispersed work models. Therefore, business resilience, workplace flexibility and people connectivity must now be valued and treated as key business priorities.

Dispersed workforces can present operational challenges, especially for human resources and payroll teams, which often manage a diverse workforce in different locations and time zones around the world. Technological advancements have seen the development of digitally sophisticated solutions to deal with such complexities. For example, MHR People First’s first mobile platform uses geolocation technology, which can map and record the hours and routes of mobile workers, saving time and costs while improving the quality and accuracy of payroll, as the need to Physical timesheets and manual data entry is eliminated.

Chris Kerridge, employee engagement specialist at MHR International, which uses this technology to connect and align its dispersed workforce, echoed this appetite for intuitive and integrated platforms: “Our People First Platform refines a new concept of workforce engagement that combines technological advancements with new thinking on how to make businesses more productive, agile and resilient after a period of great change. Our industry-leading combined HR and payroll software refines a new concept of workforce engagement that combines technological advancements with new thinking on how to make businesses more productive, agile and resilient. after a period of great change. It is designed to unify the workforce through improved communication and collaboration between organizations, aligning with the global transition to flexible workplaces.

Organizations need to connect and align dispersed teams to retain and develop talent, boost creativity and productivity, and transform business resilience and flexibility, and it is clear that intuitive solutions are needed. The demand for mobile first, innovative and holistic platforms capable of offering greater agility is increasing and the market is increasing to meet this new appetite with the development and launch of holistic and increasingly innovative platforms. able to function in this new world. The future, it seems, may be scattered, but we’ll never be better connected.
