The Sparrowhawk is a scalable, modular, ram-air chute, micro unmanned aerial vehicle and aerial delivery system that provides a viable solution to a variety of mission needs, including, but not limited to, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR), communications, communications relay, and emergency supply delivery. The UAV has a ram-air chute/canopy with camouflaged fuselage and an electric counter-rotating ducted-fan propulsion system or open propeller design, depending on mission needs. The Sparrowhawk can be tube-launched (ducted fan version) or hand-launched by one individual.
The lower area of the fuselage contains the EO/IR camera system. The upper section contains the propulsion system and ...
These exterior devices will help drivers who don´t have these precaution elements.
Figure 1: The rear speed indicator, indicates caution to the vehicle coming behind,
at the moment of overtaking in a safe way and contributes to respecting the speed limits of the area.
This device will be used in areas outside the city or in rural areas, where speed limits are higher.
The indication is over 30 mph, in intervals of 5 mph.
This device goes in the car rear, with an LED system as shown in Figure 1.
Figure 2: In addition, a distance detector will be ...

Built-in firearm-identifying RF tag, system to broadcast tags reported stolen, and self-destruct mechanism inside the firearm, activated wirelessly if/when that firearm is stolen, by matching its tag with broadcast tags.
Stolen firearms threaten society. Most enter the realm of crime, providing an ever-growing supply of weapons whose availability is detrimental to civility. Nothing good can come out of keeping them functional. In the best interest of society, they must be rendered useless forever as soon as reported stolen. The Quality Function Deployment (QFD) study unveiled important inherent opportunities to disable stolen firearms: enough 'real estate' where a miniaturized Radio ...
The PocketHound™ Cell Phone Detector is Berkeley's Varitronics Systems' highly sensitive yet most easily concealed cell phone detector on the market. The PocketHound was primarily designed for College Professors to detect and locate students using their mobile phones to cheat on exams.
The receiver is specifically tuned to the RF signature of common cell phones (both U.S. & European bands) including 3G & 4G technologies; PCS, CDMA / WCDMA (UMTS), GSM, EGSM Cellular bands. The (Patent Pending) algorithm for band detection allows security personnel to locate any nearby cell phones during active voice, text or data RF ...

The present economics crisis is due (in part) to a lack of understanding about how our social system works. Today macroeconomics is very badly taught and far too complicated explanations are given. It is confusing for students to grasp the principles of macroeconomics because they are not presented in the most obvious and useful way. The aim of this model and technique is to overcome the lack of this understanding and to make the subject more accessible.
Unfortunately the deliberately confusing attitude to our social system is the result of the control of the knowledge of this subject, being ...

The microSNIFFER is a portable electronic monitoring device for detecting and reporting hazardous materials.
The benefits of the microSNIFFER are as follows:
Local and remote monitoring; small size; long battery life; gas, liquid and solid monitoring functions; low-cost. This design idea will improve quality of life; facilitate tedious tasks; help prevent injury or death; improve public safety and security; save time; effort and money. For example, enhanced microSNIFFERs could replace drug-sniffing dogs at airports, saving the time and money spent in training the dogs, as well as the effort and expense in acquiring and caring for ...

The wrist saver is a simple device that would allow you to rest your arm, keeping it in a comfortable and ergonomic position while working in front of a computer; turning your elbow and not your wrist, saving your wrist from the painful carpal tunnel syndrome and other wrist related injuries.
After working for more that 10 years in front of a computer and taking all measures to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome and seeing my colleagues, friends and co-workers go through painful treatments and surgeries the idea naturally came up to avoid that path and save everybody from ...

Tile-Lite is purely a life saver, Based upon my original early warning detectable surface Tile or comonly known as the ADA Tile. The Tile-lite is a information system for the Visually and Hearing impaired/challenged. It can through the use of LED technology indicate Green arrows for safe direction and Red crosses for danger. Also included is the audible "Beep" that will allert people as well as guide dogs trained to react to the sound.
The Tile-Lite is weather proof and made from durable thermo plastic over molding. Tile-Lite can be installed to replace existing tiles to upgrade any ...
INTERSTATE CLOSED AGAIN DUE TO JACKKNIFED TRACTOR TRAILER! This headline occurs far too frequently. Truck jackknives occur when the deviation angle between the tractor and the trailer gets too large. The front of the tractor moves like the folding blade of a jackknife (See Figure 1).
I am proposing (1) a sensing system (based upon accelerometers sensing relative motion between the front and back of the cab) and (2) a mitigation system that uses controlled bursts of horizontally directed gas pressure to counteract the motion before it becomes critical.
There are already several anti-jackknifing patents, but they are usually ...
