The GFWIIITECH.TJID platform can be easily packaged, assembled, disassembled, unpacked and navigated in gravity, low gravity, or zero gravity by autonomous systems, remote systems, and human technicians. This platform is sturdy and functional while still being effective, efficient, lightweight, and simple. It is composed of carbon fiber centered set of composites with additive embedded conductive contact features. In addition, TJID mounts/shackles/unions will be smart enabled as well as having embedded conductive contact features. These will acknowledge contact pressure and continuity at the points of contact. The continuity sensor system will be carried through the entire TJID truss component for complete intelligent structure monitoring. GFWIIITECH.TJID is an innovation that is a functional development for spacecraft and gravity fields ...

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 ...

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 ...

The haptic puppet is a human participant linked to a hydraulic humanoid (avatar) with full proportional feedback. This is accomplished by a wireless synchronized system of near real-time bi-directional proportional feedback. The technical name is an Electro-Hydraulic Interactive Double Feedback Loop.

Two devices, one being a mechanical suit for a person, the other being a mechanical humanoid (avatar), incorporates matching sets of hydraulic actuators for inducing movements. Each actuator in a given device along with a system of electronic sensors and hydraulic valves, in conjunction with a central processing and control system, keeps track of the physical positions and configurations of the actuator and the corresponding actuator in the other device, and what the status of the actuators should ...

Wings in Figure are in tandem configuration to have the capability of heavy payload applications due to efficient lift generation. Blended body fuselage and End plates are
configured with tandem wing, in order to acquire the low power consumption for long endurance by reducing the drag over the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. Since blended body fuselage and end plates are configured with tandem wing, it was found that there is a lack of lateral stability in the mentioned new configuration with the tandem wings, end plates & blended body fuselage. To overcome that instability, twin tail with the dorsal fin is configured with tandem wing, blended fuselage and end plates. All together putting a novel configuration with low power consumption ...

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 ...

We as a team have designed a product named the Hovering Soldier to solve one of the important security challenges faced by the soldiers at the borders to protect one’s own territory and at the same time for the internal stability of the nation.

The Hovering Soldier is designed like a bird that flies towards the neighboring territory to monitor a particular area. It uses 2 types of cameras fit inside the bird’s eye. One is about 4MP sCMOS camera providing very high resolution in full sunlight. The other eye has a thermal camera named The Viento-G that is specially designed for a wide range of thermal monitoring applications This could also serve as an important tool to keep ...

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations have been performed over a blunt cone configuration with and without lateral sonic jet injected into hypersonic laminar flow at Mach 8.1. The comparison of pressure ratio indicates good match with the experimental results for no jet case. The simulation with sonic jet results in a complex flow field interactions like shock-boundary layer, shock-shock interactions, barrel shock, Mach disk, primary and secondary separations ahead of the jet etc.,. The comparison of pressure ratio indicates over-prediction of the plateau pressure rise and under prediction of the pressure rise due to the detached shock. The empirical estimates of separation distance, detached shock standoff distance, plateau pressure and jet penetration height matches well with the present CFD ...

A low cost IFR training aid that simulates IFR conditions during pilot training. Can be installed on any commercial IFR training aircraft. Can be easily removed from the aircraft. Does not require any modifications to the aircraft.

Purpose:

To provide an instrument flying training aid for the instruction of student pilots

Components:

This instrument flying training aid is composed of two components;

a. A polarized film applique that is applied to the windscreen of the
trainer aircraft

b. A pair of glasses with flip up/down opposing polarized lenses worn by
the student pilot.

To Use:

Since the film applique and the glasses are purposely polarized in opposite
directions, when the glasses and only when the polarized lens is flipped

Carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites (CFRCs) possess properties that supersede their individual components and are being increasingly adopted in the aerospace industry. CFRCs have a complex structure that contributes to their unique properties but also makes them prone to an increased variety of damages such as fibre breakage, debonding, transverse-ply cracking, and delamination. Increasing the routes to potential failure with increased complexity of the failure mode is their major disadvantage. They require frequent visual inspections which has distinct disadvantages: 1. It is time consuming and tedious, 2. There is potential for mistakes and human error, 3. High cost for automated visual systems, 4.non-visibility of surface and subsurface damage that leads to low possibility of accurate visual inspections, 5. ...
