By Yoav Zitun
American global aerospace, defense, security, and advanced technology company Lockheed Martin, maker of Israel’s F-16, F-15 and F-35 fighter jets, announced Sunday that it will open a research and development center in Israel in partnership with American IT storage company EMC.
The new center, which will be introduced Monday at the companies’ stand in Tel Aviv at the Cyber Tech 2014 conference, will be built in the new industrial park in Beersheba, focusing on cyber defense solutions.
Another Israeli technologically advanced defensive system that deals with threats that fly on too small a trajectory to be engaged efficiently by Iron Dome, to be deployed in 2015.
Israel plans to deploy a new missile shield known as “Iron Beam” next year which would use a laser to blow up short-range rockets and mortar bombs, a defense industry official said on Sunday.
The system is designed to deal with threats that fly on too small a trajectory to be engaged efficiently by Iron Dome, the Israeli interceptor credited with an 80% success rate against rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists. Continue Reading »

Making a silicon semi-conductor involves carving a sheet of the element silicon, kind of like carving a sculpture out of rock. It’s the most common method of making transistors for everything from cellular phones to computers. But silicon is expensive, inflexible and environmentally problematic.
What if it were possible to make transistors from ordinary materials simply by coating them with readily available proteins — for instance, human blood, milk or mucus?
