1. More warships in the South China Sea: Testing the diplomatic waters
Reports last week said Japan will send a helicopter carrier into the hotly contested South China Sea in May. The carrier Izumo is based in Yokosuka and its mission is primarily anti-submarine warfare. Izumo will patrol the South China Sea and make several stops, including Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The carrier will eventually sail into the Indian Ocean to conduct joint naval exercises in July with India and the United States. Japan's decision to deploy Izumo is prudent and comes when the US and its allies in the region want to send a clear signal to Beijing: Freedom of navigation (FON) operations will not be disrupted. Japan and China do not hold competing claims in the South China Sea.

1.1 Engineering professor invents potentially lifesaving military technology
A Citadel professor who spends much of his time teaching engineering on campus, spends the remainder of his time working with a team of researchers at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Adelphi, Maryland. Gregory Mazzaro, Ph.D., is a faculty member in The Citadel’s Electrical Engineering Department. He is also a member of the Sensors & Electron Devices Directorate at ARL. Three of his recent inventions, created in conjunction with other ARL researchers, expand the Army’s capabilities for providing information to soldiers entering uncharted, and often dangerous, environments. The patents Mazzaro has acquired protect techniques for locating electronic devices, such as cell phones, from a distance by using a special type of radar. Such devices are normally located via linear or traditional radar, but when the electronics are low to the ground, at a distance, and possibly obscured by rocks or foliage they are difficult to locate. Mazzaro’s inventions include Multitone Harmonic Radar (U.S. patent #9,395,434), Cognitive Nonlinear Radar (U.S. patent #9,435,882), and Combined Radar Assembly with Linear and Nonlinear Radar (U. S. patent #9,476,973). They use an innovative form of “nonlinear” radar to recognize potentially-hazardous electronics remotely. ”Dr. Mazzaro’s research directly impacts the lives of American service members in combat zones by providing them the ability to detect threats triggered wirelessly,” said the Dean of The Citadel School of Engineering, Col. Ronald Welch, Ph.D., USA (ret.). “Exposure to his research is also of great benefit to our cadets and students on campus.” Mazzaro and his teammates at the ARL have been studying, building, and evaluating experimental nonlinear radars since 2010.

Charleston calling: 5 things to know before you go
A BIG, BIG BRIDGE RUN - The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge spans the Cooper River, stands more than 570 feet high and covers more than 13,200 feet from downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. It’s the largest cable-stayed bridge in North America. And on April 1, you and several thousand of your closest friends can run across it. The annual Cooper Bridge Run began in 1978, easily outdating the Ravenel span, which opened in 2005. It’s one of the largest 10-kilometer races in the U.S., supports numerous local and national charities, and features a military presence – runners from Joint Base Charleston and ROTC units from The Citadel are regulars. Good to know: Oprah Winfrey entered the race in 1994 under an assumed name, according to an official race history. She finished 3,839th out of 7,355 official finishers.
