The sensor system is an intelligent damage detection “skin” that can be embedded into structures, providing a lightweight capability for in-situ health monitoring for space or aircraft vehicles, inflatables, deployables, extravehicular activities (EVA) suits, smart wearables, and other applications where prognostic impact damage monitoring might be critical.

Owners of helicopters may have staff who utilise helicopter flight time which is not charged out. Not only is this practice dishonourable but is also dangerous as numbers of critical helicopter components are time expired and have a finite safe flight/use time.

This invention was inspired by the recent spate of aircraft crashes in which the “black boxes” were damaged or unrecoverable, and (by comparison) the existing, semi-automatic buoy system used in modern military submarines.

The Fractal Orifice Plate US9278362 is a platform technology upon which novel nozzle geometries for advanced fluid dynamics and spray applications are based. It is designed to produce a large class of non-canonical turbulent flows that can be tailored to specific applications based on a few simple parameters.

FRUITFLY is an open-hardware programmable research micro-drone printed circuit board for developing programmable and intelligent autonomous drone applications. It comes in a ready-to-fly kit and is primarily designed for Arduino/Intel Galileo environment.

Future Aerospace Assembly using HMI and Robotic Riveting (or Fastening)

HMI is Human Machine Interface and in the context of Robotic Riveting refers to the Riveting Team....the Riveter and the Bucker (the upper sidebar shows a classic Riveting Operation).

This innovative, new software system provides aerospace design engineers with a Windows-based, graphical user interface for design, analysis, development and simulation of aero-thermodynamic systems. This software has the benefits and advantages over existing simulation and performance design software tools by enabling the design engineers to rapidly synthesize,

I invented an advanced magnetic braking and ground maneuvering system for aircraft that implements axial flux motor/generators. The new system replaces the current friction based braking system with axial flux motor/generators eliminating the need to run the main engines or use of tugs for ground maneuvers,

The idea consists of the creation of an electromagnetic propulsion system which can be utilized as an alternative for the propulsion by conventional jet engines used in modern day aviation. There are many theoretical proposals for various electromagnetic propulsion systems,

The Problem:
In the early morning when I drove to the gate of a government facility, the sky was still dark. I stopped my car at the gate and raised my badge for the security guard to check.
