Hover bike is a flying robot, which works on the principle of a combination of lift generation as in a helicopter, and maneuvering of a bike. With this technique humans will experience a new way of flying and driving in mid air. The hover bike has the ability of having Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL), which is the general way of lift generation by helicopters. A well designed hover bike will be able to take a slow VTOL due to the low area of pressure distribution by the blades, and also due to high amount of weight concentration mostly near the ...
In the last three years, at least 173 people have been killed and more than 700 wounded in 17 ramming attacks around the world (source: http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-tsa-truck-warning-20170505-story.html).
Apart from being a tragedy on an individual level, the attacks also affect public life. The freedom to meet is a cornerstone in a civilized society.
A lot of (often temporary) anti-ram systems and safety barrier are now being installed. Most, if not all, of these systems are aesthetically unpleasing and their sole message is that there are crazy individuals in society!
The proposed "Sit-in" system has the same primary function as the ...

Riscram™ Rocked Ignited Supersonic Combustor Ramjet. Propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft with supersonic combustor. Mach 0 to 30 - Earth Sea Level to Space Exosphere.
This invention relates to a propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft configured to operate from a fixed point to hypersonic steady state speed and from an altitude at sea level to an altitude which comprises the terrestrial exosphere. More specifically, this invention relates to a propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft having a supersonic combustor which is ignited by a rocket, in other words, a propulsion system for hypersonic aircraft having a supersonic RAM combustor which ...
The technical solution is based on a flight apparatus with flexible outer shell, powered by the pressure effect described as the Coandă-Effect, apparatus built as an experimental model.
This is an innovative solution for all flying apparatus with vertical take-off, high-speed flying apparatus, or the ones which require a robust and compact body – reentry body – at high altitudes and high speeds. The compact built and propulsion technology also is fit for landing and flying in tight locations, and cause its compact construction it takes less space as far as storage space.
Lenticular vehicles with Coandă Effect are ...
Space exploration can advance rapidly once there is widespread interest, adoption and access by a large fraction of humanity, whose skills and talents can bring new and innovative thinking to the most pressing challenges in the field. One of the major barriers to space exploration is the high rocket launch costs. Nanosatellites such as CubeSats offer a low-cost standard for building and launching miniature spacecraft that can do more with less. However, even these platforms cost $100,000 for a 1U (10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm) and $300,000 for a 3U to ride to Low Earth Orbit ...
Quantum Entanglement is a new and interesting phenomena that has NIST researchers relaying and possibly setting up the first quantum Internet , with a distance of ~105Km
Cat7 cable, ATT WIFI/Fiber Modem and Server located at the University of Texas at Austin. Sent a Picture of a comic book (Mon-El) From Oklahoma City (Moore, OK) to Austin, Texas. Once the image was sent I verified that it was back in my inbox from the firstname.lastname@example.org account. Therefore, the information must have been sent back. However more time must be needed and better experiemental techniques to verify that ...
It’s sobering that passengers looking out over an aircraft wing might know more about what’s going on with the airflow than the pilots. It’s time to change that with APM.
The patented Airfoil Performance Monitor (APM) is the only technology that provides real-time information to pilots regarding the state of the airflow over the aircraft’s wings and tail. This information is critical for the prevention of stalls and Loss of control (LOC), particularly during airborne icing encounters. According to a 10-year National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) study, LOC was the leading cause of fatalities to large commercial jet and ...

In order to provide additional protection to warships from submarine and mine attack, a perimeter barrier comprised of submerged “panels” is proposed. A collection of panels creates an underwater wall that is intended to intercept and detonate the enemy warhead using their own explosive force.
A “panel” is envisioned as encasing scrap metal (c) inside a hydrodynamic shaped keel (b} which is suspended from a flotation device (a). Several panels can be towed at a time by a semi-autonomous vehicle which maintains a station-keeping position away from the warship. The panels are expendable for intercepting torpedoes and mines. Simple ...

DTI’s Next Generation Autostereoscopic Glasses-Free 3D LCD Displays Will Make Air Travel Safer
In the very near future, pilots will receive better information from DTI autostereoscopic instrumentation and navigation displays. According to NASA, this will result in an 18% improvement in pilot situational awareness.
In addition, aerial refueling operations will become faster and more efficient because refueling boom operators will be able to more easily position their booms into an aircraft fuel receptacle and air traffic controllers will have a better intuitive understanding and greater command of their airspace because they will see air traffic on their displays with high-fidelity depth ...

For many years till now UAV’s have been used for operations that include tracking, surveillance and data acquisition. Our team came up with a very novel design specifically for delivery drones. Team Hydron has put its efforts in designing and manufacturing a Hybrid Tilt rotor based VTOL UAV. An optimal design procedure is conducted to satisfy a set of pre-determined requirements, which ensure a competitive aircraft platform performing swift delivery of products sold by a company. The drone has three electric motors with tilting capability in one axis, which gives it the opportunity to combine the vertical take-off and ...
