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 can cause catastrophic failure and loss of life. The removal of frozen contaminants before takeoff is an FAA requirement - ...

Till date very little has been reported about the issues of Hirakud Dam. Increasing deterioration of soil in the catchments is causing erosion of the subsoil, resulting in Sedimentation and Siltation, Largescale water-logging, seepage and unscientific water distribution system are only a few to name. In addition, the Flood control objective of the dam conflicts with the other objectives of irrigation and hydel power generation.

Various Research and Reports suggest that 43 percent of silt was assumed to be annually trapped in the reservoir. This has led to loss of the live storage capacity at an annual rate of 0.4 per cent from the beginning of impoundment in 1956.

As an obligation of the technical university, towards ...

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 sensors along the floatation devices and tow ropes can detect a breach by surface vessels.

Once deployed, numerous groups of ...

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 second stationary mirror reflects the laser back into the moving mirror providing more force than similar designs. To manufacture ...
Zipr Shift LLC produces a revolutionary bio-inspired closure which mimics the spine in order to achieve the features essential for a flexible, durable, hermetic closure. The closure, currently named the Klōs® brand closure, is a synergy of the two current standards of zipper technology: the slide fastener comprised of rigid teeth or coils and the wholly flexible press-to-close fastener of packaging. This harmony of rigidity and flexibility enables the Klōs® brand closure to effectively eliminate the problems yet maintain the benefits of the two 19th century closure technologies, surpassing both products in utility for 21st applications in defense, aerospace, packaging, fashion, and more.

The Klōs® brand closure is cost-competitive and more durable than both old-fashioned closures. Furthermore, it’s the ...
