High Altitude-Long Endurance UAV MAY-21 can be used on global strategic missions for anti-terrorism and peace keeping operations. It can be operated during 26houres without refueling at altitude 18.5km from sea level. High precision guided bombs give UAV privilege to support Special Forces when it is necessary. Whole UAV designed to be manufactured using composite materials.
General aerodynamic analysis for wing and whole design carried out using Finite Element Analysis method. Result showed good Lift to Drag properties for wing and for whole design as well. Here are general parameters of UAV:
Length – 12.5m
Wing Span ...
High Velocity Interstellar Probes
Travel to other stars is expected to take centuries unless we discover a faster-than-light technology, which NASA is currently exploring. An alternative is to send small probes at near the speed of light (c). Current methods for accelerating a small mass to near c include rockets or linear accelerators. Rockets require almost all of the accelerated mass to be fuel, which then requires more fuel to accelerate. Linear accelerators are limited in length and thus require large, crushing forces concentrated on the small probe in a very short period of time, thus destroying the probe.

This is a new type of hybrid combustor for turbine driven jet engines which will utilise the convenience of using a conventional combustor to start scramjet combustion that will drive the turbine of a jet engine. The idea is that, after the jet engine has started by means of using the turboscramjet combustor’s built-in conventional combustor, it will then be throttled up by turning on all fuel injectors at high fuel injection flow rate until the compression and velocity of dilution air entering through the Dilution Supersonic Inlet (DSI) technology are enough for the combustor to work like a ...

To provide an instrument flying training aid for the instruction of student pilots
This instrument flying training aid is composed of two components:
A polarized film applique that is applied to the windscreen of the trainer aircraft
A pair of opposing polarized glasses worn by the student pilot
Since the film applique and the glasses are purposely polarized in opposite directions, when the glasses and only when the glasses are donned, the student pilot cannot see outside the front windscreen, simulating IFR conditions.
The student pilot can still see the interior of the cockpit and ...
This concept came after watching “The Martian” and seeing news footage of a earthquake relief camp. “The Martian” showed an inflatable habitat used on Mars, while the news showed people still living in nylon tents years after the earthquake.
Inflatable structures use an inflated spine to form the shape with plastic walls. More complex structures also are inflatable, like tents, displays or even football field sized event buildings. All inflate using low pressure air (5-12 psi). None are intended as long term structures and all depend on maintaining air pressure to stay erect.
These structures have desirable features, the ...
Our team has developed a thin film technology of amorphous carbon nitride, and applied it in the field of infrared optical lenses to provide protection for infrared optical lenses. Long-term research and test proved that the technology can provide effective protection for the infrared optical lens in the conditions of high temperature, high humidity, low temperature, low humidity and other harsh environment. It has superior resistance to salt fog, acid and sand, and can ensure 100% permeability of infrared light wave .
At present, the traditional protection method of infrared optical lens is the diamond thin film ...
“Passive controls” of airflow over aircraft wings focus on airflow boundary layer effects, with benefits of drag reduction, lift to drag ratio enhancement, wing stall delay, better post-stall behavior and performance, reduced stalling at steep attack angles, shorter take off and landing distances and overall flight control performance, increased aircraft operating range, higher operating altitudes, improved roll rates, less take-off noise, reduced engine emissions, reduced separation distances and improved ground crew safety during take-off and landing operations due to wake vortex turbulence reduction, increased aircraft cruise velocities, and greater fuel efficiency during level flight duration.
This proposal contemplates periodic ...
The InSpec Snapshot Surface Gauge is a compact, vibration-immune 3D surface measurement system with micrometer-level vertical and lateral resolution for measurement of precision machined components. By allowing rapid, accurate, in situ quantification of critical features and defects, millions of dollars can be saved through elimination of erroneous part rejection or mistaken acceptance of failing components.
Most 3D measurement systems acquired data sequentially over several images, which makes these methods susceptible to jitter and vibration. 4D Technology uses patented polarization-based methods to acquire all data in a single frame, providing accurate, vibration-immune 3D measurement capability on rough, shaped surfaces while ...

The International Space Station (ISS) is subject to debris traveling at great speed from almost any direction. Normally debris is tracked by ground radar. However, it is limited in the size that it can see and sensor on Earth position. Therefore, a space based system would be desirable to detect debris and warn the ISS. This invention is designed to detect debris that threatens the ISS regardless of its entry angle.
This invention is comprised of two satellites to detect debris on a collision course with the ISS. Each satellite is in the same orbit as the ISS. One ...
Reduction of drag and boosting of lift to drag ratio is of paramount importance to maximize flight efficiency. Turbulence has a major role in producing drag. In order to reduce turbulence and thereby reduce drag and increase lift to drag ratio I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years of research.
Background of design: To move a body against a fluid, the body has to push the fluid sideward and pass through it. So the fluid has two moving directions with respect to the body, one parallel to body’s direction and second one perpendicular to the ...
