With all the new systems on the Space Center and other areas coming on line I feel this will be very useful. Most systems engineers and technicians use laptops or at least paperwork orders to operate, calibrate, and do maintenance on systems. Most often there is no surface to use the laptop or do paperwork. This item gives the user a work surface for either the 6 X 6 enclosure or the 24” type rack. A slightly smaller one can be made for the 19” rack. No tools necessary for installation it simply drops into place. You could logically locate a cabinet / box with an adequate amount of plates to support the area in need. If a system ...

INTRODUCTION:
The maturity of the technologies for the guidance and control of RPAS allows for innovative operational options such as the ability to spray (a liquid) a significant amount of an agent of any sort at a pre-established point in the atmosphere. This is the case of NitroFirex, an innovative project that integrates already available defense and UAVs technologies in order to attain an operative capability that can be applied, at night, in the battle against wildfires and fumigation of drug plantations.

Due to the human and ecological harm caused, the social alarm generated as well as the economic losses that they bring forth, the project that NitroFirex is developing with maximum priority is the one to combat these ...

Explaining how my device does the following:

a. Monitoring C02 levels in the immediate vicinity of the crew member, preferable near the mouth and nose:
The Proposed personal CO2 monitor is a portable, wearable Bluetooth device which is clipped to the upper body clothing of its user. It can be built with commercial IR sensors like the Arduino Analog Infrared CO2 Sensor or most preferably the “CozIR sensor” which are lightweight and use significantly less power so can be battery powered only needing to be charged after weeks or more of usage.

b. Is not obstructive so as to minimize crewmember discomfort and distraction:
The device is designed to have a small form factor, it is attached to the ...

Contrary to logic and general theory, a bullet with a flat tip moves in water several times faster than a bullet with a sharp tip. This effect is simply explained: a flat tip creates cavitation bubbles that rub on the rest of the bullet surface very slightly. That is, the total area of friction is reduced so much that it fully compensates for the enormous resistance of the flat tip.

Is it possible to achieve this effect in aerodynamics? Everyone says no, since cavitation is only a property of the fluid. But even in the '30s, it was proven that at high speeds the gas has fluid dynamics. Just this discovery allowed to improve cooling technology.
But what configuration ...

Supersonic flight over land is currently severely restricted because sonic booms created by shock waves disturb people on the ground and can damage property. In 2022, NASA will begin validation tests of its X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology (X-59 QueSST) aircraft, which is anticipated to produce a soft “thump” rather than a disruptive sonic boom. To help achieve this milestone, NASA researchers have developed an innovative approach to capturing images of shock waves emanating from aircraft in supersonic flight. They will use these images to study shock waves as part of the effort to make sonic booms quieter and open the possibility of overland supersonic flight. In addition, this technology will enable the study of flow phenomenon for other systems, ...
Prior to AC all-magnet motors were used for some four decades then forgotten, perhaps from ferrites of the day too weak to be very practical while today with cobalts they are far stronger and last at 90% full power >>700-years.

A recent 1-Megawatt all-magnet generator was developed to have 'no spark', for security to provide power in with explosives and isolated from external needs, has a 50-year, 100%-Continuous Duty-cycle output guarantee with normal service.

A specific design for the Astrobotic M-1 Lander, became a novel geometry of all-magnet motors for electricity of 2.6kw, 110vdc, 24A, 18cm x 7.6cm in diameter replacing a 542w solar panel for use in space.

An advantage for in-transit being aiming with reactors no fuel, allows lunar night ...

ALPHA is a remotely piloted reusable rotary flying platform for launching spacecraft from high in the stratosphere instead of from the ground.

The first stage of a typical multistage rocket is essentially a flying launch pad for the second stage. As the largest and heaviest section of the rocket, the first stage lifts the second stage from the densest part of the atmosphere to extremely high altitude where flight conditions and requirements are very different. Then the second stage is launched and the first stage is usually discarded at great expense after only a single use. Some effort has been made to recover and reuse first stages, but these achievements are limited.

ALPHA is a better flying launch pad for the ...

We have invented an advanced method for modeling transport processes in fluids. The method is adapted to model gas flow, including dilute gas flow at high Knudsen numbers. Instead of modeling based on using an infinitesimal fluid element of a continuous medium, the method approximates fluid flow as a model gas flow.

The method is based on if each of a plurality of particles, which compose the model gas, travels with a probability between any of two points in space occupied by the model gas by following a ballistic trajectory governed by a law of motion in free space and treating each of the plurality of ballistic particles as a property carrier transporting one or more of mass, momentum, ...

In 1923 Professor Paul Biefeld and his student Thomas Townsend Brown discovered this effect during the test of a new type of capacitor. Basically the Biefeld Brown effect is electro gravitation. If you have a flat disk capacitor with a good dielectric like Barium Strontium Titanate (BaSrTiO3) and apply high voltage to the plates a directional force normal to the plates will be generated according to the formula developed by Doyle R. Buehler trough experimental data.

F= 0,47 * U (J) = (force in Newtons)

Where U is the energy stored in the capacitor. The force generated will be proportional to the energy stored. The energy stored is dependent of the capacitance and the voltage applied The capacitance of ...

This idea is about the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) in missiles as replacement of heat seekers in order to eliminate the effects of flares that are usually deployed by the target in order to evade heat seeking missiles which is technically called Infrared Homing missiles. The artificial intelligence smart missiles may be equipped with several cameras in order to assist the image recognition of an AI in all angle so that the smart missile can freely locate the target in all angle. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Smart Missile compares the target to the image stored in its memory. So, any mismatch on the number or letters written on the plane of the target will divert the AI missile ...
