Using chemical propulsion (actual rockets) are not a viable solution. Just to send a crew of six people to Mars we need at least 9150 oxygen tanks, 1180 gallons of water, 280 full grocery shopping carts.
For each 100 tons of cargo that we want to put in orbit we need 85,000 tons of rockets. In other words, to assembly a ship to travel to Mars we need 3350 rockets using chemical propulsion.
Also because rockets are not so fast, we need to use a "transfer orbit" and calculate exactly when Mars will be there for arrival, that means a ...
It is just a conceptual design. Spaceships are the ones which have a challenging mechanism, not found clearly. We know is that the particle which rotates with ultrasonic RPM will produce anti-gravity. But it is not easy to produce and travel in it. From the same concept, using a rotor which surrounds the standardized solid in the shape of foil, when the rotor starts to rotates the solid will try to escape from the gravity. By adjusting the angle of the rotor we can move or direct it up and down and also to the required direction. This spaceship's blades ...
The Sparrowhawk-HL is a hand-launched version of the (military variant) Sparrowhawk designed primarily for the civil market. The Sparrowhawk-HL is an electric powered-paraglider system with a vertical hanging fuselage. The fuselage design and major component placement allows the Sparrowhawk to fly in a relatively perpendicular flight path (to the ground) in most flight regimes regardless of power input. This along with its consistent center of gravity allows for a very stable aerial ...
SUPERSONIC LIQUID DROPLET LAUNCHER:
An idea to provide a repetitive stream of liquid drops at supersonic velocity.
A Need Exists To Launch Mach>3 Droplets At Optical Components For Erosion Studies On High Mach Number Vehicles. This proposed technique replaces other difficult techniques such as launch droplets cradled on the nose of a vertical gun-fired sabot where the sabot is slowed and deflected from line of fire (by a curved bi-track) before droplets impact on the target. The idea is to create wave velocity amplification and droplet launch in a tapered subsonic duct. The principle is based on ...

The intention of this method is to suppress the separation of flow over a wing by using the piezoelectric property. Attempt is made to reduce the loss of lift at higher angle of attack and hence increase critical angle of attack.
The piezo fan is an arrangement of a piezo ceramic along with a polyester film attached to it so that it vibrates on introduction of electricity onto the piezo ceramic. The apparatus setup is fixed on the wing test section of an aircraft and is tested on the wind tunnel for flow induction properties.
The airfoil selected is ...

The World's First Type 1 Auto-Protocol Switching Redundant Telephone
With the intent to save lives through redundancy, The Poitier Wright Model 14, or PW-14® allows multiple monitoring real-time capability over Data-Link tracks of concern, providing the capability to “lock-on” tracks, forwarding its client side data back to main Tactical Data-Link devices for further processing. With an IP-to-Serial auto-alternate connection, or manual configuration, uptime rates are maximized with redundancy, in both secure and non-secure settings. It is Type 1 Encryption Compliant, for both VOIP, analog, and certified to support up to Link-22. For Coalition Guard, it supports classified ...
Our team consists of four members. We the Team Seyon have come upon to create a jet pack using simple and cost effective materials. Building this prop is not rocket science, even though you're building a "jet pack." We used basic products to build this jet pack. The main concept was to make this jet pack user friendly and also look simple and cool.
The first thing we did was cut a part off the frame of my pack to be more streamlined. So we cut off these pieces with a rotary tool. Next we screwed the Hide-a-key boxes to the top ...
My idea is for a tethered electric powered UAV with coaxial rotors that could be made in various sizes and powered by the ground through the tether so it stay up for days at a time.
The UAV would primarily be used by ships to look over the horizon and use passive sensors to look for targets such as periscopes,ships,and land targets far inland too.
They could also be used to send laser communications with direct line of sight to other ships.The advantage of a tethered UAV would be jam proof and hack proof transmission of data to surface ...

Drones are bringing Intelligence and Situation Awareness (ISA) on the battlefield. Power generation and weight are two variables that restrict their persistence and push them off-range from the war fighters.
Today, small drones capable of providing platoon commanders with a high level of SA are the point of focus of numerous cumbersome designs. Most are concepts adapted from the RC industry.
We, at SRDFMC Conseil, believe that this is the wrong strategy. Power density prevents that approach from being successful before long and most of the needs still remains at close range, at the immediate proximity of the soldiers, ...
CONTEST ENTRY: Augmented Reality Helmet Controls - The BROWZ*A/R (Rugged*IZ Edition)
ENTRY SLOGAN: “The KEY to What You SEE”
Augmented-Reality Display and Control in Hands-Free Environments;
Augmented-Reality for WorkZone SAFETY Standards (OSHA, UN);
[Suit Environments: sterile, hostile, extreme, atmospheric]
People may disagree whether 'Life imitates Art', but fantasy fiction seems to influence the development of many useful products. As such, The Browz*AR (RUGGED*IZ Edition) may be the closest thing yet to producing a helmet display-and-control HUD system like Tony Stark and his armored suits.
RUGGED*IZ can replace existing helmets used as welding-masks, pilot-masks, firefighter-masks, police-masks, combat-masks ...
