Provided by a thermal camera, Volare Dominus unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is capable for surveillance over a big range up to 20 Km. Using Raspberry Pi, aerial photography and video streaming became easier than before.
Range: 20 Km
Endurance: 2 Hr
Payload: 2 Kg
We have chosen to utilize the vortex energy generated at airplane wingtips to generate electricity and power non critical parts of the flight, hence increasing the fuel efficiency.
It is an aspect of wingtip vortices, which has been studied very little in the past.
The design describes a 40-passenger commuter aircraft that has VTOL/STOL capabilities. It has a cruising speed of 400mph and a range of 1000 miles.
The aircraft would open up under-served areas in the United States as well as countries that do not have infrastructure (runways,
Water tunnels have been traditionally used for flow-visualizations in aeronautical applications and more recently in bio-mechanical studies such as swimming of aquatic animals . Their use has been instrumental in understanding important aspects of fluid flows such as instabilities, vortex shedding, boundary layer stability and transition,
