This concept presents a radically new wing design that aims to equip new aircraft designs such as flying car with the aim of emulating the behaviour of helicopters and tilt rotors with much higher efficiency, better performances and higher safety levels. The specific design has been grasped to allow producing typical manoeuvres including VTOL operations and hovering by means of a innovative and simple high-chamber ducted fan morphing wing with a dual configuration: one aims to increase lift by mean of Coanda effect and super circulation and the other aims to produce a vertical thrust by jet deviation. It ...
BERP rotor improvements provide an advantage in maneuverability/precise positioning/ low vibration levels and fast reacting low level situations. The increase in lift efficiency will also penetrate many civil markets/ based on the reduced fuel consumption for the same load carrying capacity (Technical description courtesy of Agusta Westland).
A technique for containing the adverse effects of aerofoil pitching Moments is incorporated in the construction of the BERP blade. The layout of the aerofoil sections comprises a main lifting section using the RAE 9645 from .65R to .85R. The aft camber of this produces a strong nose down pitching moment ...
SkyAuto will be a two-seater VTOL [Vertical Take Off & Landing Aircraft]. Having three small jet engines mounted at three sides of the VTOL, it will fly using "auto-pilot." My aim is to make it for defense transportation with enhanced security and advanced navigation. It can be used for Space Exploration as well since the cockpit has almost 360 degree view.
The three small jet engines will be fit at the sides of the craft. The cockpit will be like an "Egg" shaped shelter which will be fully made of glass except the basement. While the three jet engines ...

SATTO Rapid Repair Systems are a revolution in repairing damaged aircraft cabin interiors. Fully compliant with REACH, MSDS requirements and setting the industry standard for engineering support with EASA Approved Technical documents.
SATTO Rapid Repair Systems are fast, ultra-strong and long lasting. Following our clear instructions, repairs can be carried out on-wing or in a workshop — no need for specialised tools or lengthy technician training.
This entry presents SOLLUX - SATTO's innovative new system for repairing composite components such as overhead bins, sidewalls, etc. Fully backed up with Engineering Orders, the SOLLUX system is fully tested and allows ...
Scientists estimate that there are about 10 to the power of 16 fish in the sea, which is more than 1 million fish for every human. About 95% of these fish live deeper than 500 meters under the sea. All of these fish require oxygen to breathe. They do not split water molecules into Hydrogen and Oxygen; rather they breathe the oxygen from air that is dissolved in the water. Separation of dissolved air from water is simpler, and requires much less energy, than splitting water molecules (which is the way that nuclear submarines supply oxygen to their crews). ...

The Tesla Turbopulsejet is a (hypothetically) low cost, highly efficient and compact jet engine, using patents and inventions from 20th century inventor Nikola Tesla, as well as the use of pulse jet engines. The pulse jet aspect improves combustion efficiency by doing combustion in pulses, reducing fuel consumption over time.
A typical jet engine exhaust turbine can't handle pulses all that easily, so the exhaust scroll of choice is the Tesla turbine, a centrifugal turbine consisting of a series of perforated discs mounted on a drive shaft, powered by tangentially shooting air in between the discs. Estimates are that Tesla ...
Aviation Safety Industries' extensive research, development and engineering has developed an innovative and comprehensive 'Business Method Plan for Deicing Aircraft' for improved deicing efficiency.
The innovative element of the plan being:
1. The improvements in deicing efficiency are due to a specifically designed unilateral system for the method and practices of deicing aircraft for all cold climate airports of the United States. Specifically designed and engineered are three unimagined U.S. patented deicing apparatuses to facilitate our innovative perspective plan for an economical and expedient airports Fixed Base of Operation for aircraft ground deicing. This improved Method and Practices ...

My design is based on a laser sail but with a laser and a mirror attached and another stationary mirror. The stationary mirror reflects the laser back into the other mirror which reflects the laser back into the stationary mirror and so on and so forth propelling the non-stationary mirror and laser. What makes my design novel is the laser and a mirror are incorporated into the thruster. Whereas similar designs have either a mirror or laser with one stationary and the other moving. My design has both the laser and a mirror moving with a second stationary mirror. ...
The Virtual Reality Deicer Simulator puts you on the runway inside a deicing vehicle, either as a driver or a sprayer. We've developed our software to work and mimic the controls and movements of the actual enclosed cab deicing vehicle. The VR Deicer Sim base, houses the identical proportional joysticks used to control boom movement, truck maneuvering and sprayer control used in the real thing. Our software runs on a standard PC with an Oculus VR headset.
Inadequate removal of frost, ice or snow adhering to the wings, control surfaces, engine inlets or other critical surfaces of the aircraft ...

The Hoplite Armor Hard Armor Shoulder Plates, or HASP, was developed in order to address a very specific need within the body armor industry by providing rifle rated protection to the wearer specifically designed to protect the vital organs from lateral impacts. While numerous advances have taken place with regards to body armor materials over the last decade, little has been done to address certain vulnerabilities in current systems, primarily with regards to providing sufficient coverage while maintaining a balance between weight, coverage and mobility.
In 2004, a close personal friend of mine by the name of Lonnie Young ...
