Reducing or eliminating Shockwave is of paramount importance to maximize Supersonic and Hypersonic flight efficiency. In order to reduce marginally the shock wave I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research. The concept is described below.
To cancel shock wave move two metal piece in forward and backward direction in such a way that sound produced by both pieces cancel each other (the sound is out of phase with each other).
By changing the distance between two pieces you can cancel shock wave at variable or different speeds. Find the wave length of ...

Concept for an Air Taxi
Small Aircraft VTOL, fully computer controlled, V-shape, no "wings".
Makes use of the CONADA Effect.
Electrically driven FANS. Electric, hybrid for now!
Concept A: underbody fans
Concept B: many small fans on the sides of the airframe
For both concepts: Forward - electric or jet
Air pressure system for Directional Control
Positions and size for Air Inlets for A and B fans are only indicated. Have to be positioned and sized during detail design for throughput air requirements.
Different "V" shaps have to be investigated to achieve the best compromise.
Movable flaps ...
An aircraft tire with airfoils, or an airfoil texture, molded into the sidewall. The idea being that when the tire is exposed to the air stream the airfoil feature would create a lift force that causes the tire to rotate. By creating this feature on a tire, retrofitting existing aircraft would only mean replacing the ...
Imagine a new airliner design that has slower, safer take off and approach speeds yet can fly at Mach .95 with little drag. Imagine an airliner that takes the engines away from the wings and places them out of the way of bird strikes at the tail of an advanced airfoil body. Imagine a plane that can carry twice the load yet get the same fuel economy as others with 1/2 this load. Now imagine your airfare actually going down.
Not possible? Actually, the design has been around since the early 60's jet age. Propeller designs go back even further. ...

The problem: getting small satellites into space. If you're with a typical nonprofit, university, or small-budget government program without millions of dollars and years to spare, but want to use the "common heritage of mankind" above our heads to help your mission, you build a small, cheap satellite. But rockets today are designed to take big satellites, not small.
There are no commercially available rockets today with a payload of less than 100 kilograms. The smallest now under serious development (except ours) are around 20. But the dominant small satellite standard is the CubeSat, massing 1-5 kilograms. Their only ways ...
Military tracked vehicles are deployed in severe environmental and loading conditions during Military operations. The space availability and high heat rejection sources makes the cooling system design a challenging task by offering little margin in design parameters. This paper presents prime aspects of the design methodology i.e. packaging of cooling system aggregates in available space, optimizing air flow, numerical simulation and also the evaluation of cooling system performance on a test bench in simulated vehicle conditions and during field trials. During preliminary design stage virtual prototyping approach was adopted which helped to make critical decisions earlier in the development ...
The Saucer-Kush and Mothership-Jedia, shown in Figs.1&2, are a New Flying Object (NFO) propelled by the External Magnetic Field-Propulsion System (ExMF-PS); based on the Universal Energies (UE), derived from the new fundamental physics (http://exmfpropulsions.com). The detail characteristics of Jedia mechanism is shown in Fig.3, it consists of external bismuth 1 of the propellant mechanism, and an internal ferromagnetic protecting structure 2; both linked by beams 3, axels 14 and 27.
The driving, ascending, brake and stability forces are shown in Fig.3; where [A] is the ExMF Driving force (FExD) [B] is the ExMF Ascending Force (FExA) or levitation ...
The report deals with the concept of using flapping wing as a mode of flight for light unmanned aerial vehicles. Using biomimetics, the study of a bird flight is made followed by the design proposal which mimics this bird flight mechanism. A detailed calculation is then made for calculating lift and thrust produced by a single wing including the benefits of diffuser lift provided by the unique wing design. Finally, the kinematic, aerodynamic and dynamic equations of motion are derived for the rear flapper.
Another means of reducing the negative lift generated during the upward stroke is by making ...
Stykfit7 is a security screw with a novel drive configuration of 7 lobes and a large center rejection pin. These two features make insertion and removal only possible with the matching keyed driver. it is patented. All other security screws are out of patent protection and have millions of driver bits in circulation, found commonly at retail. Stykfit7 is further novel in that the bit and driver grip each other positively. This allows the driver both hold the screw precisely and direct it towards its assembly point hands free. The bond is so strong it holds under rotation and ...

As the airplane cockpit evolves, additional methods of Human Machine Interface (HMI) are desired. Examples of this include: the use of multi-touch swipe gesture for Primary Flight Display (PFD) screen transfer, allowing the Pilot to perform mode and menu selections via touch, pinch/zoom map range selection, touch and drag Navigation Display (ND) flight planning, the use of voice commands, providing secondary / audible feedback for touch gestures, Artificial Intelligence (AI) event-triggered safety monitoring, integration of 3D cameras or Google glass, biometric monitoring, etc. etc.
Current aircraft architectures were not built with this type of HMI functionality in mind and therefore ...
