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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Unfortunately, there are many airplane crashes in the world every year.

From its inception, the main goal of aviation is flight safety and preservation of passenger life. I decided to connect my life with aviation, that’s why I became a cadet of Belarusian State Academy of Aviation, and I want to make the contribution to the development of this industry.

Everyone knows that the main value in life – is life itself. For this reason, I decided to connect my proposal with the safety of flights.

The subject of this project is a bracelet, which is put on the passenger's hand during check-in and removed at the end of the flight. To prevent unforeseen situations the bracelet is fastened ...

This device uses GPS and a terrain/obstacle database to create a predicted flight path. When the predicted flight path detects an approaching CFIT threat, the device changes from a passive flight following mode, gives the pilot an aural warning and a visual threat display. The pilot gets a 3D visual picture of where the predicted flight path will hit the terrain/obstacle. By maneuvering the airplane, the pilot can alter the predicted flight path away from the terrain/obstacle. When the predicted flight path no longer detects a CFIT threat, the system returns to the passive mode.

What makes this system novel is that when a CFIT threat occurs, it shows the pilot a visual picture of the predicted flight path ...

This drone has 4 new parts that can increase the load capacity and maneuverability many times:
• Turbopropellers are propellers with turbo expander in the center.
• Lifting body, which increases the load capacity by about 30%
• Vertical flaps that turn the resistance of the motor holders into useful work.
• Reactive cuts on the wings, which increase the load capacity and speed.

1. As is known, 1/4 central part of the propeller located above the motor does not perform work. Turboexpander makes this part work very efficiently. They can be of two types:
The first version is intended only for small drones and it has only central blades. They push air out of the middle and create ...

We present in this opportunity a 6 passenger full eVTOL aircraft concept for Urban transportation, with vertical propulsion electrical engines and propellers in under the fuselage arranged configuration with air intake. Also will have engines on the sides of the fuselage for horizontal propulsión.

My company: GRUG GROUP LLC, was founded to supply services in the aviation sector and to develop a variety of future aircraft. We currently are working on several eVTOL flying vehicles concepts. Those are designed with different characteristic and capacities to fit a wide range of the demand that could be in the future.

The projected global market for urban passenger flying vehicles will be of 21 billion US dollars for the year 2035. Other ...
