What is HyALTA® - A hybrid lighter-than-air (LTA) and flying wing air vehicle that allows a single vehicle to provide the simplicity, vertical heavy lift, and extended efficient station keeping capabilities of an LTA with the high glide ratio (>40:1) and velocity (up to 200 kts.) of low coefficient of drag flying wings. This patented design (U.S. Patents 9,623,954/10,287,000/10.377,465/10,532,803 and other patents pending) is unlike other conventional or LTA aircraft.

How Does it Work – HyALTA® delivers these capabilities through an elegantly simple minimalist internal structure that morphs to provide extensive combinations of aspect ratio, chord thickness and top and bottom camber to achieve a wide range of aerodynamic and buoyant lift configurations. A gas impermeable inner bag provides ...

What is HyDroneTM - A vehicle designed to operate in and easily transition between maritime subsurface, surface, ground, hover, and forward flight domains. HyDroneTM can operate in or back and forth between any or all of these domains during a single sortie. This allows a single HyDroneTM to perform missions that would otherwise require two to four separate vehicles with their separate attendant control and support systems.

How Does it Work – The transformational design is enabled by the Hybrid Advanced Mobility Propulsion System (HyAMPSTM) (US Patent 10,180,083, additional patents pending). The HyAMPSTM design acts as a ducted fan propeller in air or water and engages the ducted shroud to serve as a drive wheel on the ground. A ...

Avalanche photodiodes (APD's) offer increased sensitivity over photodiodes. Applications such as Lidar and fiber optic communications experience significant performance improvements by taking advantage of the higher sensitivity afforded by APD's.

However, APD's require a high voltage bias of ~50V to 600V or higher. Current bias power supply options are often too bulky, heavy and expensive for practical use in high volume applications and size constrained systems such as automotive or drone Lidar imaging.

Start-up power supply company Mike Doherty Designs, LLC, a Colorado Corporation, has targeted this market and has developed a miniature, very low cost design with a suite of APD specific features otherwise unavailable in the marketplace.

Despite its small size and low cost, this line of ...

Standard N95 masks and similar filter-based face masks can’t block 100% of virus because these pathogens are simply too small. N95 filter porosity is typically on the order of 0.3 μm where SARS-CoV-2 and similar coronaviruses are roughly half that diameter (~0.12 μm). Exhaled virions in droplets may be effectively trapped in the filter, but once dry, viable virus can freely pass, risking infection of healthcare workers and other’s relying upon such respirator masks.

The VirionMask™ (or Pinocchio respirator – Project working name) is simple in. UV light denatures or kills pathogens. VirionMask provides for high volume, low restriction breathing via a mirrored inside surface airway tube. Inside the airway tube is a UV laser light source, delivered via ...

During this time one of the many efforts farmers have made to increase the production of strawberries has been with the use of inorganic fertilizer. The market demands that continue to rise in the production of strawberries make one of the factors that make inorganic fertilizers integral to our farm world. But promoting good growth requires good planting and so many nutrients in it that measuring it requires. The design measures nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus in the strawberry plants by the topology of the star grid, hardware used for soil insurgent measuring sensors, soil sensors, and NodeMCU as the microcontroller. The real-time database used on this craftsmanship is firebase. From the results of testing done to the device proves ...

10% of women and 20% of men do not wash their hands when leaving a public washroom.

How do you avoid potentially picking up infections from them when grasping the handle to leave?

In ordinary life this device, which allows one to leave cleanly without any risk of contamination, can reduce the occurrence of infections like stomach upsets.

Medical personnel would find it particularly useful in public areas of hospitals.

However, in the current situation, as the movement restrictions are eased, the need to keep clear of covid-19, which can survive for several hours on the metal handles of doors, is really important.

It is a hook device, which is not novel, they do exist but have a major ...

It has always been so. Massive portions of bread are baked - loaves, and then they are cut into pieces to eat them.

Our solution is not to bake loaves but bake thin bread instead that has the same crust on both sides and its a thickness is equal to or thinner than the thickness of any existing bread slices. Unusual sizes of superthin bread - we called it Lechem, and quick baking, opened up new features and many new properties. Lechem bread has a unique rich taste, increased nutritional and medicinal value. It is simple and quick to cook.

The ability to bake unusual sizes of this superthin bread and the short amount of time required to bake ...

Social distancing is ultimately about creating physical distance between people who don’t live together. At the community level, it means closing schools and workplaces and canceling events like concerts and Broadway shows. For individuals, it means keeping six feet of distance between you and others while in public and avoiding physical contact with people who do not share your home. Although schools, offices and businesses already had shut down to slow the spread of coronavirus, the park was packed in Boston, according to the New York Times. People walk in groups close to each other even if there is very large ground surface area. This is because it is very hard to program ourselves to keep the 6 feet ...

The advent of digital camera’s have rendered many fine, quality film based 35 m/m cameras obsolete. Many consumers and photographers still own these film based camera’s and would desire to continue using them.
 
The re-useable digital camera adapter is an innovative opto-electronic consumer product device that replaces 35 m/m film and can be inserted into conventional film based 35 m/m camera allowing the camera to capture and store images in a digital rather than film based format. The market for a device that allows a standard 35 m/m camera to capture images in digital format could be huge. Purchasing such a device would be a cost effective way to preserve and elongate the life of these fine legacy ...

Railway hawkers are people who carry snacks on trains. They carry the snacks in trays which they hold in hands. Being heavy it’s most likely that their hands will ache at some point in time and it's not even comfortable to carry the tray in a crowded train. To overcome this some of them use self-originated techniques like using a hand towel. Tying the tray with the cloth around the neck. As the problems might look small but could impact more on the human body. The weight of the tray and holding it inappropriately can lead to physical health issues body disorders and many more things. As this business is carried out in crowded trains the hawkers need to ...
