Middle East: In a televised national address outlining his strategy to combat ISIS, President Barack Obama said he had authorized U.S. airstrikes for the first time in Syria, as well as more attacks in Iraq in a broad escalation of a campaign against the militant group.  For many Arabic governments being asked to join the cause, a request to commit forces is considered likely to be met with deep reservations.  For Saudi Arabia, in particular, the stakes are high in the campaign against Islamic State, which has vowed carry its fight to the kingdom’s monarchy. But as one of the leading Sunni Muslim states, Saudi Arabia is hesitant to commit its troops to a war against fellow Sunni Muslims, however extreme they might be, for fear it would generate a domestic backlash.

Electronic Nose: Researchers have developed a prototype electronic “nose” to detect chemical warfare gases such as Sarin, Soman, and Tabun. The nose is composed of 15 sensors, a data acquisition system, and a computer connected to the system. Through the sensors, the nose “smells” gases in the atmosphere and further processes the data to warn of the presence of a gas. The system can be portable for use in areas where a chemical attack is suspected, or fixed for continuous monitoring of environments such as airports.

Jetpack: What if every soldier could run a four-minute mile? That’s the goal behind 4MM, or 4 Minute Mile, a student project to create a wearable jetpack that enhances speed and agility. Working with the DARPA and a faculty mentor at ASU, Jason Kerestes is the mastermind behind 4MM. He built a prototype of the jetpack and is now testing and refining his design to be as effective as possible.  This is different than the Martin Jetpack, produced by the UAE which can travel at a cruising speed of 100kph and reach heights of 1,500 meters.  The video can be seen here.
