JULLS appears as single form-factor of Light-set that could be equipped with interchangeable lights and other equipment of standard size for different goals.
Form-factor and design of JULLS could provide more efficiency and economy of resources in processes of prototyping, producing, supplying, exploitation and repairing or changing of vehicles lights and of vehicles, equipped with JULLS.
Today all producers of military vehicles lights use unique form-factors, designs and measures of such lights that raising their costs and prices, make some difficulties and rise processes of supplying of final customers.
Form-factor and design of JULLS give possibility ...
A dream it was for a man to fly before the invention of aircraft. In the esteemed domain of aircraft, landing is the most challenging part, where most of the accidents have happened.
PROBLEM DEFINITION - After some research, we found that a considerable percentage of landing accidents were due to overrun.
SOLUTION - This entry focuses on eliminating the risk of overrun by reducing the aircraft’s landing distance using field theory. This can also be a solution to the planes that land on an aircraft carrier which use the conventional ‘tail hook’ system.
"It's raining shelters, not bombs."
Life Capsules is a humanitarian project aiming to save living beings fleeing wars or natural disasters after the destruction of their communities. The compressed lightweight structure can be thrown from airplanes providing shelters for people in danger.
The concept of Life Capsules was initiated to provide quick and easily transported shelters for people in need after looking over the conditions of current existing humanitarian camps and the long process needed for their construction.
The idea sparked after knowing that up to 20 million people died in WWII indirectly, meaning they were subjected to death ...
We all would have heard of Elon Musk’s proposed Hyperloop system and the competition to design certain aspecs of the Pod, and of particular interest was how to provide a braking system. How do you brake or stop a Pod that is traveling through a vacuum tube at up to 760 mph (1,223 km/h), that was the problem given to engineering students around the world. I am not an engineer, I am an inventor, and this is my solution. You use the Linear Motor that has propelled the pod to the high speeds required, to act as a braking ...
The term space debris is the collection of defunct man-made objects in space. Their population increase in an exponential manner according to the Kessler syndrome. Eventually the increased space traffic will make it impossible to launch any space vehicle. The Magneto is a space debris cleaner, deployed in the orbit of the debris. It captures the fast moving debris, slows it down and transfers it to the lower earth orbit (LEO), where the debris can degrade due to the atmospheric friction.

The Mars Aeroshell Resource Orbiter (MAREO) combines habitation, storage, propulsion and aerobraking functions in one large conical spacecraft (Figure One), for a streamlined Mars mission plan.
Orbiter: MAREO is twice the diameter of the NASA Orion spacecraft. External Bays of the cone house Main Engines, angled nozzles pointed forward and outward; as well as reserves of fuel, oxidant, water, oxygen and electrical capacity. Crew Cabin has two habitation decks, with underfloor storage, upright bins and consoles. An Airlock Tunnel is enclosed by an Upper Cone Shroud in four quadrants: twin sets of three Orion return parachutes, total six; ...
The magnetic field on Mars' surface is 40 times weaker than that of the earth. This weak magnetic field makes life almost impossible because of the radiations exposed on the surface. Interest in radiation shielding to protect scientists and astronauts in habitats are taken by NASA and many private firms very severely and many projects have been funded to get the best designs for radiation shielding for interplanetary travel.
To overcome this problem and provide a suitable atmosphere for habitat we are providing an artificial magnetic shielded atmosphere with the help of a strong electromagnet. The electromagnet ...
This idea is inspired by MIT's small jumping robot cubes and the decades old technology used to orientate satellites in orbit.
Reaction wheels (flywheels) rotate at high angular velocities and then are made to stop using one of the four electromagnetic brakes transferring angular momentum into the body of the frame. Once the energy from the flywheel has dissipated the flywheel starts to spin again until it reaches maximum rotation and is ready once again for action.
When the brake is activated the frame gets jolted forward slightly but with a slight curve towards the centre of ...
The novel design of the Modular Cargo Access Pallet (MCAP) represents a complete revision of how commercial aircraft load and retain passengers and cargo. By making both the passenger and cargo compartments modular pallets, the basic ‘naked’ aircraft fuselage can be quickly fitted with custom tailored modules based on the current aircraft mission. This innovation enables a standardized aircraft fuselage to be reconfigured as a commercial air carrier, a cargo carrier, a custom boutique passenger carrier, a scientific or military platform, or an emergency response asset. This design not only provides for versatile adaptation in response to commercial pressures, ...
We have advanced a lot in field of aviation. But still we are always primitive than the upcoming stage of the aviation. So I took a keen interest on the take off & landing system of an aircraft. The wings plays the most important part in it.
The wings creates the lift so that the aircraft rises above the ground while take off and drag as well while landing. While take-offs, we need lesser amount of drag that the lift as to fly above the ground. A drag is created with the lift due to the inclination of the ...
