Background:

Nowadays security space activities are seriously threatened by space debris, more than 300,000 fragments in orbit. The most orbital debris is from disused LEO satellite. If we do not clean it up, the space debris problem will get worse. I suggest a method for reusing disused LEO observation satellites for the lunar exploration to reduce space debris. The life of a satellite is almost caused by exhaustion of fuel for the altitude and position control more than the reason of communicates interruption or electronic components breakdown. After satellite refueling, its life can be extended.

Advantages of reusing LEO satellite:

In this entry, I use Korea Multi-purpose Satellite(KOMPSAT-2) as an example. It will finish its life at 2013. It has a ...

This system, completely innovative and original, is the normal evolution of a series of machines that, using the principle of interference of static magnetic fields, including the paternity claim, can be used to produce mechanical energy.

The structure of these machines is such that you can only use static magnetic fields generated by permanent magnets and therefore without any external energy during operation. In order to better clarify such document please note the terms of definition that will come later on:

FERMAG is the conventional name given to the equipment that, as indicated in the title, is the object of the patent;

TURMAG conventional name given to the theory and the device and myself with Italian patented n° AP2007A000006 of ...

The Manta Ray Unmanned Underwater Riverine Craft (UURC) is designed to perform clandestine, persistent surveillance in riverine, inlets, harbors, and other coastal shallow water environments as well as providing a platform that can provide extended time-on-station research.

The Manta Ray is an Unmanned Underwater Systems (UUS) designed to operate in harsh environments (obstacles, weeds, shallow water, etc).

One of the major expected benefits on the Manta Ray will be its unique propulsion system, its Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, its ability to secure itself to the river/sea floor, the Hibernation and Energy Regeneration System (HERS), and plug-and-play payloads. Commercial applications of a shallow water riverine system are many, from harbor security, boat hull inspections, pipeline and cable inspections, ...

MECHANICAL SEALED GLAND VALVE
Three figures viz. Fig.1, Fig.2 & Fig.3 are attached. Fig.1 shows a typical globe valve with gland rope arrangement. Fig.2 shows a globe valve with a typical mechanical seal arrangement in lieu of gland rope arrangement. Fig.3 shows the magnified view of mechanical seal assembled inside the valve. Referring to Fig.2 and Fig.3, in which the gland rope arrangement is substituted by mechanical seal arrangement. The plug2.A is screwed to the valve spindle. Two vertical slots are made on the outer surface of plug whose top view is as indicated in the right side. Unlike the plug as shown in Fig.1, this plug does not rotate and can only move longitudinally up or down. Its ...

This is a means of killing bed bug infestation in bed mattresses and other hard to treat areas that can handle exposure to microwave energy, yet the use of insecticides is not welcomed. The diagram gives a basic design layout for building a microwave transmitter to provide short-range microwave exposure to areas where bed bugs might be hiding. The device would be connected to a microwave generator next to an E-type T-section with two rectangular wave-guides leading from the T-section to the transmission horns on the end of each wave-guide section. The microwave energy being transmitted from the horns can then be applied to a local area in front of the horns. This would allow for radiated heating of ...

This design is a concept of incorporating mine detection electrics within the fabric of military boots for protecting our troops by outfitting the boots with mine detectors. Simple and cheap.

It can also be made available to many of the warring countries to protect civilians. It's just one less tool to have to carry around into combat and ...

Many biological species have disappeared or evolved through the history of our planet. Such could be the fate of mankind – to disappear or to evolve. What makes us different from other biological species is CONSCIOUSNESS.Through the centuries, people have looked for ways to preserve it, even after death. We have yearned for immortality and forever youth and this is evident from our religions and legends. Maybe the answer for this task are robotic technologies. Today, we create more and more intelligent machines, fulfilling different tasks for the people. Only two simple movements are used for that – linear shift and rotation. By the people, these movements are commanded by the brain.

After the Big Bang, in the newborn Universe, the elementary ...

This two part device includes (1) a special type of microscope capable of analyzing biological molecules down to the atomic level in their natural fluid (folded) state and (2) a molecular fabricator that will use this surface knowledge to create custom antibodies highly specific to the analyzed molecule.

Harvesting cancer cells from a patient, and then placing their unique surface proteins in this device, would allow generation of a custom antibody for that cancer, treating a wide variety of inoperable cancers. Analyzing the surface proteins of bacteria and viruses will allow creation of highly specific antibodies to those virulent biologicals, which may be stockpiled at a physician's office or hospital for immediate use. Enormous reductions in ...

In this time of inflation and space crisis in the manufacturing and construction industry, there is a tool that could do much more than its operation. There are tools available in the market similar with multiple functionality, but the uniqueness in this tool is that each operation is done at the angle of convenience; e.g., the most comfortable position for angle grinding is while holding the grinder at an angle to the work piece and the hand holding the tool parallel to the work piece. In the modern world all workshop and repair shops use electric tools for quicker, easier and better results. In workshops handling large equipment, on site work or even a household repair battery powered tools ...

Expensive, new functional materials such as organic semiconductors, semiconducting Quantum Dots (QDs), nanowires and graphene all require deposition of ultra-thin, precise coatings, often as monolayers … but cost effective application of such precise micro- and nano-coatings, to include self-assembly of 2D monolayers of nanoscale particles at high yields and Roll-to-Roll (R2R) rates (e.g. >4 meter/min), is a significant manufacturing challenge across multiple industries. Vacuum processes are expensive, energy intensive, do not readily lend themselves to R2R, and are impractical for thicker layers. Existing R2R processes such as slot die, roll or spray coating are incapable of doing precise monolayers, or ultra-thin, ultra-precise coatings.

We propose a novel coating technology with precise control over uniformity and thickness at ambient pressure ...
