Many fisherman and other people die from sinking of boat in river or sea due to storms and waves, but it may be prevented if this innovation system is used to make a boat or trawler.

For this system, four foldable/contracting shafts (many hollow pipes will be placed into a hollow pipe, one after one) to be fitted at the two sides of boat by keeping same distance and same position. These foldable shafts can be spread up to 20 – 50 meters towards depth of river or sea. One square metal plate of 3 to 5 meters to be fitted at the end of each foldable shaft and it will be folded by pulley system from the boat. ...

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, ...

A group of self-driven students from the University of Southern Denmark has designed, built and successfully flown the first ever box-blended wing drone.

This drone, with a wingspan of 1.5 meters can fly for ranges over 80km, carry 2 kg of load, and transports sensors and imaging equipment.

The drone has a box wing configuration, minimizing induced drag created by the generation of vortexes at the tip of the wings. It boosts an extra 20% efficiency compared to conventional aircraft designs.

It is powered by an electric motor and can do fully autonomous launch, way-point navigation and landing. The drone uses advanced materials in its construction: the monocoque tail and body are constructed in carbon fiber, sandwiched with a ...

The current approach to space avionics development is to design each electronic drive or sensor signal conditioning circuit for a specific purpose. This approach slows the development cycle, produces large avionics systems and increases overall cost for flight systems. The process is similar to re-inventing the wheel each time, but updating only the material used in making the wheel. A novel avionics approach is necessary to meet the future needs of low cost lunar and space missions that require low mass and low power electronics. To meet this need requires an innovative, distributed avionics architecture, based upon two multi-purpose modules that can be individually reconfigured to drive and sense a variety of mechanical and electrical components. The solution is ...

The Exponential Engine is a modification to current piston and valve engine designs which will generate 4x the power for the same displacement current as Otto cycle engine design.The concept replaces crankshafts with our patent pending cam-crank permitting 2 power strokes per drive shaft revolution thus generating 4x the power for the same displacement. Other features include unitary engine cooling utilizing air, coolant and oil in a single engine unit without using hoses of any kind. Higher power to weight ratios in the range of 2hp per pound and co-axial drive lines permit propeller or load driving in contra drive directions. When used for aircraft, safety is improved dramatically since the system comprises two separate and independent operating engines. ...

We have combined all aspects of small space, low energy usage, effective operation, minimum consumables and working in microgravity for designing our new system and inspired by human digestive system to design our “Space Waste Digester.” As human digestive system is not depending on gravity and works based on peristalsis and valves and is a perfect system to design a system for handling waste in space. We have used this concept and designed our “Space Waste Digester” which is combination of trash receptacle and feed mechanism and will work seamlessly between the astronaut and reactor. Our system has been designed for microgravity condition and it will work much better and with less energy in this condition. We have used ...

Utilizing current LED monitor technology, incorporate it into both fabric and complex surfaces, combined with data processing of video imaging. The purpose of this is to project an image on both clothing and surfaces of objects replicating the background of an identified viewer.

For example, an object can be hidden from a viewer without camoflage. Using this approach, a viewer identified with a direction finder could direct a camera to video the view behing the object; projecting it onto the monitor surface facing the viewer. With the associated microprocessing capability, the object would blend into the background the viewer sees. As a result, the object would be completely invisible to the viewer.

This technology could be applied to personnel, ...

SHUTTLE 2-The multibody spaceplane aircraft technology possibilities

Following recent advances in aircraft design, a possible optimal solution for a spaceplan, to carry a payload in orbit could be a multibody vehicle, having the advantages of both the SSTO and the TSTO. Considering that 90% of the load is fuel, a conventional booster is basically a fuel tank powered by engines, while a spaceplane should be an aircraft, fully reusable, capable of horizontal takeoff and landing as a conventional commercial jetliner.

Goals

Goals of the proposed spaceplane can be summarized as follows:

-Single configuration for takeoff similar to a SSTO including the booster and orbiter sections

-Horizontal aircraft mode for take off and landing

-Utilization of conventional landing strips at ...

Many moon missions are being carried out by various countries but the end result is not yet known. Temperature on moon surface varies approx. from +130 to -150 degree c. So growing plants is difficult. But plants have an ability to adapt and adjust with extreme environmental changes. We are proposing a plan or kind of thought experiment in which the future moon mission will carry earth soil, water, seeds, and some special plants and specially designed incubator, thermal sensor, auto temperature monitoring and adjustment system etc. along with mini poly house. Some seeds and plants to grow inside incubator with earth like surroundings.

Inside poly house after digging about 2 ft. pit on moon surface, fill it up ...

Military organizations and industries use generators and electrical motors in day to day operations. To get the upper hand over adversaries and/or the competition it is best to have the best new tool around, "Forever Fuel." "Forever Fuel" is an Anti-Gravity Engine that reduces electrical needs (loads) for electrical motors up to 40%. If used in reverse it produces up to 40% more power for wind turbine generators.

This new engine uses very strong magnets to create Anti-Gravity. This Anti-Gravity caused by the levitation of magnets creates a force that is 10x the weight of the magnets. The key to this levitation is a curved inclined ramp that contains a special array of magnets that is brought into the ...
