Game on: Virtual trainer takes serious approach to electronic warfare
Missiles are launched at a Navy ship, and Sailors must decide in a matter of seconds how to keep from getting hit.
Bio-inspired autonomous vehicles expand Navy littoral capabilities
Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have taken inspiration from nature—from fish, in particular—to design and develop novel underwater propulsion, control, and sensing solutions for ...
New imaging technology to design and build greener and safer aircraft
The University of Southampton is helping to develop new imaging technology to be used in the design, manufacture and maintenance for current and future generations of carbon composite aircraft.
Researchers patent a natural ventilation system of roofs that prevents heat build-up
Researchers at the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón have developed a modular ventilation system for pitched roofs that solves the problem of heat accumulation by solar radiation under the roofs without the ...
Custom tailoring robotic exoskeletons that fit to perfection
It wasn't too long ago that the idea of a wearable robot that would lend its user increased mobility and strength seemed like the stuff of science fiction; indeed, films like Aliens and Iron Man, which featured ...
Modular disability aids for world's poorest
Brunel University London design engineering student Cara O'Sullivan's final year project aims to help developing countries make their own disability aids using modular components.
Body motion energy harvester may power medical and consumer wearable devices
A body motion energy harvester, with the flexibility and elasticity to be applied to high-flexion joints and suitable for integration with fabrics, is being developed by researchers at Sogang University in ...
Using 3-D printing, MakerBot and Feinstein Institute repair tracheal damage
Investigators at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have made a medical breakthrough using 3D printing on a MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer to create cartilage designed for tracheal repair or replacement. ...
Pilotless aircraft will play critical roles in precision agriculture
Comparing an unmanned aerial vehicle to a magnetic resonance imaging machine may seem odd, but that is how the director of the Mississippi State University Geosystems Research Institute sees it.
Research applications of unmanned aerial vehicles
Mississippi State University researchers are preparing for the day when unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones, can be used commercially in agriculture.
Weighing gas with sound and microwaves
NIST scientists have developed a novel method to rapidly and accurately calibrate gas flow meters, such as those used to measure natural gas flowing in pipelines, by applying a fundamental physical principle: ...
Secure monitoring subsystem proves effective in thwarting cyber attacks on drones
Engineering researchers from the University of Virginia and the Georgia Institute of Technology have successfully flight-tested scenarios that could threaten drones, including ground-based cyber-attacks.
Undersea pipes "shoulder" anchoring duties
Research off the north-west coast shows undersea pipelines tend to bury themselves in the seabed quicker than expected after they are deployed, resulting in potential cost savings for the petroleum industry.
