Akecheta: Revolutionizing Aerial Warfare with the World's First Pilotless Bomber, Drone, and Fighter
The Akecheta, an innovative and groundbreaking invention, represents a paradigm shift in aerial warfare. It is the world's first pilotless bomber, drone, and fighter, boasting an array of exceptional features that redefine the possibilities of airborne operations. With its remarkable capabilities,
Currently, air-breathing electric propulsion ramjet configurations are considered worldwide. However, configurations with air scoops suffer from significant momentum losses due to air collimation and drag. One idea that was proposed a few years ago and requires further development is a direct scramjet configuration that can significantly reduce drag.
The solar system confronts us with countless mysteries that stir the curiosity of humanity’s brightest minds. However, the prohibitive cost of robotic space exploration renders it inaccessible to most scientists. One emergent technology could lower this barrier: the CubeSat.
Shape Memory Alloy Assisted Geometric Docking Adapters with Active Lighting Cues Package for Small Satellite Docking and In-Space Assembly
Significant innovations in Rendezvous, Proximity Operations, On-Orbit Servicing, and small satellite docking are required to enable the booming space economy. These technologies enable small spacecraft to trade goods and services with each other in their relevant working environments, whether Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Cislunar Space, or Deep Space.
Project Proposal: Third Generation Precision Space Flight and Landing Systems
Our project aims to explore and evaluate a novel third generation of flight systems that go beyond the concepts of birds and airfoils, enabling precision space flight and landings using collapsible thruster-foils.
PBI deployable parabolic antenna systems present a new paradigm in satellite communications enabling (very) large aperture antennas used even with cubesats.
The antennas are based on shape memory materials ‘married’ to heat pipe technology.
As industry and defense gradually shift to a modular space architecture, a reliable, autonomous process to assemble and integrate individual satellite modules in space needs to be developed. Due to the high cost of launching medium to large satellites, interest has developed for servicing and refueling satellites on-orbit.
Hands free human-powered propulsion in weightlessness inside a pressurized spacecraft is possible, wearing a pair of soft slippers shaped like a diver's swim fins.
Since the cramped cockpits of early space missions, crew cabins have grown in volume.
