Safety and Security - 2012
With the multiplicity of aviation accidents, such as, but not limited to bad weather, engine problems, running out of fuel or even control system problems.
Consequences of these incidents include loss of human lives in addition to the loss of the aircraft. The idea came from here, which are summarized as: Provide a range of parachutes to the aircraft to slow the motion of the aircraft through the atmosphere to reduce the collision force of the aircraft at the Earth's surface.
The number of parachutes and sizes depend on the aircraft size. It should be manually operated next to the ...
The concept I am putting is to solve the problem of traffic accidents and congestion created due to accidents. According to WHO research, more than 1.27 million die due to traffic accidents globally every year. This problem is worst in countries where roads are not properly maintained. Most of the people die because they do not get proper medical attention. The main reason is that an ambulance cannot reach the injured due to the traffic created by accidents. Traffic lights in this case can be very helpful as they can help in diverting the traffic or stopping the vehicles around ...
Think of how many times we climb or descent stairs in a typical day at work or at school or at the stadium or in the mall. Think of how many other people have used the handrail in the last hour. Is there any way you could wash your hands after touching every handrail? Not practical.
The spread of germs on a hand rail is one of the primary ways illness is transmitted in busy places. What we need is a system that prevents this transmission of illnesses and disease.
Maybe there is a way to keep the handrail ...
Modern fabrication techniques permit manufacture of economical personnel and package security scanners integrating traditional metal detection with high-resolution ultrasound imaging of dense materials, such as explosives, concealed in clothing or small packages.
This scanner can be manufactured using present semiconductor fabrication methods, and provides flexibility in routing and display of acquired images for collaborative examination at remote locations.
Presently deployed systems for security imaging are large, expensive, fixed installations with significant power requirements, providing whole-body images susceptible to abuse, and undesirable doses of electromagnetic radiation to subjects being scanned.
The concept proposed provides a lightweight, portable, low-power solution for ...

Problem the Design Solves: During hurricanes, the ROOFS of many homes and businesses come off, resulting in extreme interior and exterior damage from wind and rain, walls blown down, and interior furnishings destroyed. Extensive financial loss in millions of dollars results, and loss of human life, is involved in the US alone.
Bernoulli's Theorum states that in any Fluid Flow, including Air: "Where Velocity is Greatest, Pressure is Least"! This is shown in the attached ILLUSTRATION which shows Laminar flow over a WING and also over a ROOF, both producing LIFT! Smooth LAMINAR flow is required to produce LIFT.

*It is an invention of most extreme simplicity.
*It consists only in a new design of the hull, which the shape is cylindrical and where the water is sucked in the prow, passing through internal side ducts and being expelled in the stern.
*The hydrodynamic submarine is “pulled” by the low pressure of the water that is sucked in its front, besides being pushed for the high pressure of its propulsion.
*Near to the propeller’s spin occurs a great pressure difference. In the Hydrodynamic Submarine, the low pressure is displaced from the propeller’s spin line, in the ...

My design will solve the problem of children drowning mainly in swimming pools. My design is better than other safety products on the market, because it takes the human factor out, from detecting a child drowning to bringing the child to the water’s surface, getting rid of any possibility of human error. Another advantages of my design is all the technology that it takes to make my design is already out there, making the production of my design cheaper and easier to make and mass produce, so anyone with small kids or big kids can own one.

Standard reflective lane markers do little more than irritate weary drivers. Perhaps countless dollars and lives could be saved if lane markers did more than passively rumble under wandering tires.
I want to replace the dumb reflectors that we've glued to our roads by the millions with a device that will actively warn drivers of oncoming hazards.
In a package similar to current lane markers in size and shape, I intend to harness the power of vibrations from vehicles. These vibrations could be used to generate a small electrical current within the device through the ...
Island Home is a series of floating cities with greenhouse farms on top. The idealized concept would have the farm area enclosed beneath a single dome. Because of current technology limits, and the fact that these islands should be submersible, the greenhouses will first be built with smaller, water-tight enclosures. The telescoping boom on the underside of each island will contain a heat transfer system to provide cooling and some power generation. The islands also contain their own propulsion systems for maneuvering and additional power generation.
The steady rise of water in our oceans is encroaching on the land ...

A sufficient number of jet engines suffer bird strikes that cause damage to the aircraft and occasionally loss of human life. Other than using methods to try and deter birds from gathering around airports, there is nothing that can save the birds once they are in the air intake stream. However, a deflection grill should be considered for jet intakes. Such a grill could be quite thin along the axis of the air flow even while having sufficient depth for strength. If properly angled, with a greater overhang on the top, most debris would slough off. If necessary where ...
