Background and Motivation: Many missions would benefit from a stratospheric platform (or set of stratospheric platforms) that could remain stationary over, or close to, the Earth’s equator for extended periods of time: large aperture infrared telescopes; communications relays for equatorial regions (e.g., Indonesian archipelago); Earth observation. Airships are less expensive than satellites and can fly higher than traditional aircraft. However, despite billions of dollars invested (indicating market potential), there are no long-endurance airships capable of station-keeping in the stratosphere.
Manufacturability: All major elements in the concept are demonstrably within current state-of-the-art, although they have never been combined into a ...
USDA's Economic Research Service (ERS) defines food waste as "the component of food loss that occurs when an edible item goes unconsumed, as in food discarded by retailers due to color or appearance and plate waste by consumers." Food waste includes the half-eaten meal left on the plate at a restaurant, food scraps from preparing a meal at home and the rotten milk a family pours down the drain.
To reduce the amount of this waste I present here a concept for a mobile Food Security App generation.
The Food Security App would be for individual mobile phones where ...

Safety in consumer products, sporting goods and personal protective equipment is of utmost importance in this day and age. The IAGIES (Impact Absorbing Gel Infused Exoskeleton) is a 3D printed product designed to do exactly that. There have been countless studies directed toward the optimization of helmets, body armor and protective gear used in motor, contact and extreme sports; law enforcement, military and occupational health and safety related applications. These studies are instrumental not only in overcoming the immediate effect of the impact but also in preventing the likelihood of Alzheimer’s or other neurological diseases in individuals exposed to ...
Hybrid Remotely-operated underwater vehicle (H-ROV) is a robot that completes functions underwater on behalf of a crew, located on the surface, with whom the H-ROV is tethered. These functions include: search/recover, inspection, equipment repair, scientific analysis, dredging/trenching, cable-laying, and surveying.
H-ROV is designed to work at desirable depth. It is steered by turning a rudder left and right and it adjust the altitude under the water by tilting the elevators. Water- pushing and creating a forward force is done by a propeller. A power source is engaged on this action with transmitter and receiver of 6 channel. It has ...

Our product ‘Portable Seating Arrangement’ also called a portable stool is a standalone product that provides the user with a seat irrespective of the place and time thus making the user independent in terms of seating. The product is compact and lightweight thus making it portable which can be easily carried in a bag. The design of the stool allows it to be adjusted at different heights thus allowing the user to sit comfortably according to his requirements. The simple operating mechanism of the stool makes it easy for the consumer to use it.
The stool consists of 8 ...

This entry is based on a fundamentally new engine type. The continuous flow rotary vane engine represents a new paradigm in heat engine technology in that positive displacement compression and expansion processes are incorporated in a steady flow, continuous pressure gain combustion design.
Direct heat addition in a thermodynamic gas cycle is the basis for a myriad of engine types including the spark ignition class of engines, compression ignition engines, and continuous burn gas turbines. Spark ignition engines are nearly universally piston engines operating on the Otto cycle or a close derivative. A notable exception is the Wankel rotary ...

The hydrogen vehicle I am talking about will use hydrogen as a fuel to run the engine and as a result the vehicle will move. Hydrogen because of its high energy content and availability can be used efficiently as a fuel. Most of the people and even scientists say that because of its high flammability it cannot be used as a fuel and even if it is used it will be very dangerous but when we maintain required pressures hydrogen can directly be used as a fuel. This was my B.Tech project where i have successfully used hydrogen as ...

Need for Clean Water
Pollution by heavy metals (HMs) is a crucial environmental issue. With the modern growth of chemical, mining, energy, tanning and dye industries plenty of residual HMs - Hg, Pb, Cd, Cr and others - are discharged into the ambience. These toxic contaminants end up in a potable water and being invisible and tasteless to humans, they bio-accumulates in the organisms, causing chronic diseases and early death all over the world. Now the global market of HMs removal is 9 bn EU with 7% of CAGR.
We, researchers at Linkoping University (Sweden), have developed a novel ...
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 ...
