This system works by disrupting the surface tension of water that 1, forms a wedge under a tire due to a combination of velocity and water depth on the road/runway surface (Dynamic Hydroplaning) and 2, aerosolizing the thin layer of water on oil film that forms on paved
This entry contains a novel swarm control technology for aerospace applications that enable on-orbit servicing, collaboration, and coordination. Certain classes of reconfigurable modular robotics systems are intended to function like social insects or multicellular animals, where millions of cells work together to ensure the survival of the whole.
Researchers at INL have developed a large-scale spark plasma sintering process. While small scale SPS has been accomplished, the novelty of this process lies in the tooling and knowledge developed to address the scale up issues and fabricate a viable armor tile.
A feature of the drone is that it includes the properties of aircraft and helicopter types of UAVs. It is equipped with two beams on which 4 lift motors are mounted, designed for vertical takeoff and landing from almost any surface. A pulling engine is installed in the bow,
Traditional planar ducted fans can suffer from stall and drag in edgewise flight due to the high angle of attack at which air must turn into the rotors. This creates blade imbalance and instability in the aircraft that rely upon such fixed fan-in-wing designs.
