Innovative cycles in the emergence of fundamentally new types of gyroscopes last for a period of forty to fifty years, and the change from one to another occurs only after a serious breakthrough in physics and technology. Gyros can measure the course of a scientific revolution.

Today offered a fundamentally new type of power astatic gyroscope. The spherical rotor with magnets makes forced coherent oscillations around in a vacuum cavity of a stator with solenoids under computer control. The device can decide the problems of converting vacuum energy into electrical energy and generating entropic forces for move objects in space and on Earth (not a reactive way).

Good news - unusual gyroscope is already working!

The extremely simple formula ...

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 ...

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 ...

The recent advances in state estimation, perception, and navigation algorithms have significantly contributed to the ubiquitous use of quadrotors for inspection, mapping, and aerial imaging. To further increase the versatility of quadrotors, recent works investigated the use of an adaptive morphology, which consists of modifying the shape of the vehicle during flight to suit a specific task or environment. However, these works either increase the complexity of the platform or decrease its controllability.

In this work, we propose a novel, simpler, yet effective morphing design for quadrotors consisting of a frame with four independently rotating arms that fold around the main frame. To guarantee stable flight at all times, we exploit an optimal control strategy that adapts on the ...

Enriching work efficiency and rate of production, reducing production costs and workload, refining services and customer relations, maintaining security on a vast scale are a few of the top reasons why the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) industry is promising.

To gain an insight, in consequence of the continuous population growth- Egypt leads its way towards sustainability through the investment in its vast territories. In a world free of UAVs technologies, quality assurance imposes the existence of a complex infrastructure, powered by thousands of employees who will be in charge of observing these landscapes, collecting data, examining the overall conditions, predicting potential crisis and acting upon which - if any occurred. On such a large-scale project, a lot of workload ...

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 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 ...

Just like the earth, space has garbage too. The junk or garbage are called Space debris. Right now some tens of millions of pieces of space junk are circling our planet—broken satellites, rocket parts, and other human-made materials trapped in orbit. For many reasons removing those debris has become very difficult. The number of debris made it very difficult to be removed.

This project provide alternative solution to this problem. The project objective is managing space junk that are becoming problem to space exploration by directing the space debris from earth's orbit to the sun's path. Researches has shown that The recent uptick in solar flares and other activity on the sun could one day cripple satellites or knock ...

Earth exerts a gravitational force and pulls down every object that attempts to leave or escape it. Therefore, in order to break free from Earth’s gravitational pull, it is essential for a rocket to attain an enormously high speed. This velocity is known as the ‘escape velocity’. For Earth, the escape velocity value is 11.2 kilometers per second (25,020 mph); this means that you have to accelerate a rocket at 11.2 kilometers per second in order to make the orbit.

This project is about building a mechanism that uses gravitational force to launch space shuttles instead of against it to achieve the escape velocity with lower cost. This is done by integrating roller coaster principle, Newton law and existing ...

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. ...
