NASA Langley Research Center has developed a portfolio of technologies regarding clock synchronization in distributed systems. Distributed synchronous systems that are required to provide globally coordinated operations require each component (node) in the system to be precisely synchronized. Such systems could include electronic components within an aircraft or automobile,

Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of patient deaths in the United States of America; numbering approximately 450,000 deaths in 2016 at a cost of $1.44T or 45% of the total annual cost of healthcare. The root cause of medical mistakes is cognitive overload;

Cold Springs and Solar Ponds as Natural Power Generators
Cold springs can be used to cool the cold side of Stirling Generators that when even air cooled have been shown by Sandia Labs to be more efficient than the most efficient photovoltaic cells.

This is a platform of ideas for students attending and living at higher education universities/colleges anywhere in the world. There are activities that the students have which can be stressors as well as costly and negatively impact the environment. This platform of ideas addresses several of them.

Experimental aircraft are not new. Balloons are not new. But one vehicle which could make conventional ballooning more enjoyable migth be a "sit-and-spin" type design.

NASA Langley Research Center has developed composite elastic skins for covering shape-changing (morphable) structures. These skins are intended especially for use on advanced aircraft that change shapes in order to assume different aerodynamic properties. Examples of aircraft shape changes include growth or shrinkage of bumps,

The Winston Works have designed, developed, patented and prototyped three waste heat exchangers for all size homes and buildings and for individual fixtures. Energy costs for heating cold water is about $100 Billion a year in North America, the heat energy then drains into the environment.

Astronauts who spend long periods of time in weightless environments tend to suffer from loss of bone density and muscle mass. The intent of this idea is to reduce the degree to which astronauts experience these problems.

With the main target of improving fuel consumption, one of the biggest challenges on harness wiring industries is to reduce weight of the assembled harness. Based on that,


GPDT offers continuous direct control of diesel fuel injector needle lift, to control fuel injection flow rate. This is but one application of a robust, durable mechatronic actuator technology.


In the early 2000s,
