Because our aim is to win the Google Lunar X-Prize (GLXP) in the most commercial and sustainable manner, our design has many practical applications. We are developing an inexpensive yet durable robotic platform, whose resistance to the much harsher conditions of the moon will enable it to be used anywhere on Earth.

Similar to Mars Exploration Rovers, our swarm of eight to ten autonomous robots will land via airbags on the moon. Then, they will crawl and/or fly across the lunar surface for several hundred meters, capturing video with special JPEG2000 compression chips and searching for water with low-cost spectrometers. The robots’ piezoelectric and titanium composition allows them to withstand extreme temperature values and large temperature swings. A novel ...

Sometimes old technology is superior to the "latest and greatest".

Do you trust that election results always represent "the will of the people"? Probably not.

The 2000 presidential election began to make the public aware of the extent to which our voting systems and technology were susceptible to error and fraud. Much has changed since then, but not all for the better. Some of the newer systems actually make it easier for a malicious person to manipulate election results without detection. Such problems have caused some to believe that paper ballots are the only choice, yet those have a long history of fraud.

The SAVIOC Voting System (www.savioc.com) is so radically different from every other voting technology that some ...

Active RC Electronic Biquad/Universal Self-Compensated Filter(s)

2° order biquad/universal continuous time IF (Intermediate Frequency) active filters type resonant and, more particulary, active full self-compensation techniques to improve the frequency range, the stability and/or the selectivity of the filters themselves with a very low cost.
These active filters techniques are the only ones that can totally erase the effects of the parasitic poles, using a single resistor or an additional operational amplifier that has a functionally filtering output.

APPLICATIONS: IF Radio Receivers, Electronic Measurement Instruments, Telecommunications and all the cases wherein a High Precision Signal Filtering Process is needed to Transmit Data.

This Technology is fully Patented, the Best and the only one of his kind in the World.

This product that is being developed right now is for improving radio communication in a cheap and effective way. Since I have started dabbling in telecommunication I have noticed that equipment can get very expensive. My research will focus on quality and a cheap product that will match up with the higher quality and more expensive devices on the market, it will start out with simple simulations in Comsol, Matlab, and simulation of the circuits in Multisim. This cross integration of computing products is important because I want the data to be understandable by everyone and be able to recreate the product since my primary belief is that sharing of information will make for a better future for all ...

Audio feature estimation involves measuring key characteristics from the audio. It is possible to estimate features using an auditory memory model. In order to do so, an onset detection is necessary to identify new audio components to insert into the auditory memory, and an algorithm is necessary to combine the characteristics of the current interval with the characteristics of the audio components in the auditory memory. The auditory memory model mimics the attention process, and the storing, retrieval and forgetting processes. The feature estimation using the auditory memory model has been applied to the estimation of sensory dissonance. The feature estimation using the memory model is an important step in the improvement of the accuracy of feature estimation. Furthermore, ...

A bracelet or ring that analyzes a person using a variety of biometrics, such as galvanic skin response, possibly frequency (like the brainwave frequency devices), heart rate and oxygen levels. Using a variety of biometric data the color of an LED in the bracelet or ring would change color. If the overall energy level or biometric levels of the person lowered it would turn for example blue, and if the overall levels went up it would turn green with clean being the normal. This could be sold for fun, basically stating that it is a party gift to show if someone likes something. It could also serve as an electronic muscle testing device that would help people figure out ...

M2M Cellular Modem Installations- Which Carrier has the best coverage?

Solution: Cell Tower Tester -The Squid

Growth in the M2M market has been driven by lower cost cellular modems that are multi-band and have become relatively straightforward to integrate into everything from Electric Vehicle Chargers, ATM’s, Kiosks, smart meters, and used in numerous other remote monitoring applications. Several estimates have noted over 1.5 Billion M2M connections within the next ten years. Hundreds of thousands of M2M cellular modems will need to be installed over the next few years and installation cannot be left to a contractors best guess for a location. Costs are certainly important, but signal coverage, antenna placement and data thru-put are also important factors to consider ...

Electronics technology is the basis of most products we manufacture and use today. Yet very few people understand the basics of electronic circuitry. It is essential that electronics technology be taught early in our schools to ensure that the next generation can understand how to use, maintain, build, and engineer, the products of today, and the future.

The ClearCirKits Electronics Construction Set was designed to enable teaching electronics to students of all ages from elementary through college level as well as industrial training and home environments, without exposing them to dangerous electrical components and difficult to handle parts and equipment.

ClearCirKits is a electronic building block set consisting of clear acrylic cubes each with an integral lens on the ...

Anderson Aerospace LLC has developed a new compact microwave antenna technology that offers improvements over existing satellite television and broadband communications systems for aircraft in flight.

Typically, dish style antennas are 50% efficient. The most efficient system currently on the market can have as high as a 75% efficiency. Our direct wave design is 80% to 85% efficient.

This efficiency allows us to have a smaller antenna with superior performance to existing systems. This size advantage significantly reduces operating costs due to reduced drag and weight.

In addition, our innovative system architecture removes typical parasitic loss in the RF chain as well fully integrated electronics and motion control allow weight and energy savings to the aircraft.

Based on this ...
