General Dynamics gets U.S. and U.K. sub fire control contract modification

The U.S. Department of Defense is awarding an $8.8 million contract modification to General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems for work on U.S. and U.K. ballistic and cruise missile submarine fire control systems. The modification will include maintenance on the attack weapon control systems and missile fire-control for the future U.S. Columbia-class and U.K. Dreadnought-class submarines. The work will be… Read More »

Molecular dynamics, machine learning create ‘hyper-predictive’ computer models

Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated that molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning techniques could be integrated to create more accurate computer prediction models. These “hyper-predictive” models could be used to quickly predict which new chemical compounds could be promising drug candidates. Drug development is a costly and time-consuming process. To narrow down the number of… Read More »
