In the context of perimeter security, one-way traffic spike strips may be used to enforce directional traffic flows. However, these devices simply lack the kinetic stopping ability of a physical barrier. Furthermore, their protruding spikes impose a 5mph speed limit on passing vehicles which can hinder rapid/emergency egress.
Retractable physical barriers, such as swing gates, retractable bollards, or hydraulic wedge barriers have much greater kinetic ratings, however, they often require a human operator and they can be vulnerable to outside penetration when retracted (such as when allowing a vehicle to exit the premise). In addition, one must consider the ...

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 ...

The patent pending engine design incorporates 12 sets of cylinders, each comprised of two opposing and one air pump (supercharger) piston, arranged radially in a rotating-cylinder cam-driven engine that uses diesel or JP-8 and completes 48 power strokes per revolution. Magnets are installed around the rotor periphery which, combined with coils in the radial housing, effect an integral motor/generator for starting, reverse, rapid acceleration, power generation, hybrid operation, and occasional silent running. Finally, the 12 vanes of a centrifugal cooling fan are incorporated between cylinders, and the fan’s intake air used to cool engine oil distributed via a centrifugal ...

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 ...

An earthquake is a big problem for multistoried buildings. Many multistoried building are being build un-scientifically, which create an earthquake prone area and for it earthquake is occurring at new area. Many technologies have been developed to save the multistoried building but no technology is able to save from long time’s strong earthquake. Here I give an idea to save multistoried building from earthquake. I think that this idea, alone or mixing with another idea/ technology, may make it be possible to save multistoried building permanently from earthquakes.
For present system, at first we dig square pit ...

Inexpensive, Simple and Safe System to Prevent Aircraft Fuel-tank Explosion
Since 1990, three aircraft, manufactured in USA, have exploded due to combustion in the fuel-tank. In 1996, Trans World Airways (TWA) Flight 800 explosion caused 230 deaths. National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) listed “Explosive Mixture in Fuel Tanks in Transport Category Aircrafts” as Item 1 to its Most Wanted Transportation Safety list in 1997. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) amended its regulation 14CFR25.981 on July 21, 2008. The regulations do not mandate the use of any particular system type. The industry has selected fuel tank nitrogen inerting system (FTIS) ...

In physics, pulsating combustion of gases from two or more different locations near each other will tend to push each away from the other and the resulting velocity of pulsating combusted gases are amplified by the velocity of combusted gases from the other pulsating combustion that are pushing them away. But the case is different in two or more uninterrupted combustions arranged in a linear position (as in the case of jet engines). In jet engines where linear combustion occurs, two or more uninterrupted linear combustions from different locations near each other creates a constant barrier between them, so ...

Novastruct Ronin Metal Masters Technology™ is a patented sheet metal folding technology which permits the design of components using a wide spectrum of sheet/plate metal materials to fold into complex and highly precise 3D shapes for structural and non-structural applications. This advanced technology is characterized by the unique definition of parametric bending features tied directly to the component material properties and gauge thickness, in order to generate high precision bend lines requiring low force equipment and zero tooling investment. These patterns are fabricated directly into the flat 2D sheet blanks using a variety of standard metal cutting and stamping ...

The proposed concept of a RF pumping source embedded into a resonant RF cavity of the resonant cavity thruster (EM Drive), consisting of a cylindrical tube and a frustum coupled together, assumes to use the cylindrical copper tube coupled with the smaller-diameter side of the main copper frustum as a body (cathode) of an inverted coaxial magnetron.
The proposed concept assumes that the inner surface of the copper tube will be covered by an electron emitting substance, such as carbon nanotubes (CNT) for instance, and used as a cathode of an inverted magnetron, while the multi-cavity anode of the ...
