United Aircraft Technologies (UAT) is developing a smart aircraft Inter-Connecting Clamp (ICC) solution with an Augmented Reality Monitoring System (ARMS) for aircraft wiring that improves fuel economy (overall weight reduction of the aircraft), decreases the occurrence of Repetitive Strain Injuries among the workforce, simplifies maintenance through 3D fault location and visualization, and reduces the environmental impact of CO2 emissions.

This technology has the ability to revolutionize equipment readiness. A solution that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), blended with Augmented Reality (AR) that would replace the old, rubber coated clamps/brackets and associated hardware that hold wire bundles today. The old clamps often get bent out of shape and the rubber coating wears off exposing the metal band, ...

A heavy duty rechargeable/solar autonomous crawler with 4x4 capabilities (UGV). UGV acts as a communication hub and or command center. The 4x4 crawler UGV has a built in concealed communication housing box consisting of all the electical components/hardware for transmission operations. The crawler is also equipped with an autonomous lightweight canvas that can be minipulated to form a concealed makeshift tent for various weather conditions as well as acts as the CEO/command center/tent bunk for long durations spent in the same location. The UVG is recharged via reattachable solar panels to sustaine power to the tent and the communication hubs electronics. Led lights are woven within the tents fabric that connect directly into the UGV to supply power to ...

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. ...

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 ...

Centrifuge Interface Transfer and Utilities
Spacecraft Tunnel
Leonard J. Holmin
United States of America

Allows shirtsleeves crew transfer and uninterrupted utility lines between a despun base block module and the center of a revolving human spaceflight habitat. Applications could include an improved swivel conduit, as for an industrial spray hose.

Figure One shows overhead view of tunnel structure and mechanism for an exploration vehicle application.

Video demonstrates with crude model the key principle of radial bending of the BELLOWS joints to allow revolutions parallel to habitat wheel having a planetary motion to produce centrifugal force via its orbit.

Rigid TUNNEL segment is hermetically mated between two modules, revolving and despun, via flexible BELLOWS joints (Figure One), made ...

The Tumble Thruster Module (TTM) concept utilizes the high energy reaction of igniting a solid cartridge of Magnesium (Mg) together with injected Xenon(II) Floride (XeF2). The resulting Mg/XeF2 (also known as MAX) propellant combination stems from a 2008 paper on spectra research of the high energy density material by Ernst-Christian Koch [1]. The TTM combines the solid rocket motor with a controlled additive in a system also known as a hybrid rocket. This variant of the hybrid rocket is non-throttlable meaning once ignited the reaction continues until all the reactive propellant combination is burnt. What is controllable is the total amount of additive propellant introduced to the system prior to ignition and as a result the amount of energy ...

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 ...

Automated/controlled deployment stretcher barrier wall or DSBW for short. Designed as a remote operated/Autonomous mobile deployment stretcher barrier wall the operator/user has full control capabilities allowing user to minipulate the defensive barriers movement via control center and or a wireless military touch control wrist monitoring device. The wrist monitor has a wireless password protected ID that pairs to the defensive stretcher wall barrier to gain access for control functions. User/operator has ability to view the defensive barriers 3d sensory cameras in real time through the wrist monitor or via control center. DSBWs panel flaps are manafactured as a harden steel/kevlar composite material. DSBW has crawler tracks for maximum grip/movement in all conditions. DSBW has a built in stretcher that ...

This magnetic lifter drone robotic aircraft.

This Small drone aircraft is based on WW2 designs used by the German Military that were recovered during The 1947 project Operation High Jump . In that time period computer science was not available as it is today which was the Reason the German militrary had limited sucess with as it was very difficult for the pilots to manually fly these devices which were driven by a series of Gyroscopes causing Ionic lift not unlike what is currently in use by the B 2 Bomber AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL military aircraft which also use jet engines to assist in the propulsion system . A computer conrtolled Drone using this propulsion system could be used ...

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 ...
