A solar energy blimp for non-stop flights

marzo 22, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Blimp

The US Department of Defense is developing a program for creation of a blimp, which can be used for missions involving real time transmission of images and radar intelligence towards and from ground troops during ground operations.

Of course, due to the huge changes in technology over the last hundred years, the only things that this blimp has in common with those who were used for legendary explorations in early 1900s are shape and helium inside. All the rest has dramatically changed, starting from its power system, as this model is powered via solar cells placed on its body.

Thanks to these panels, the blimp, called ISIS (Integrated Sensor Is the Structure) is capable of flying at over 10000 meters of height, at a cruise speed of approximately 60 knots, with a maximum of 100 that can be reached in case of emergency or immediate threat. The way it is powered allows it to fly for 10 days without landing, thus reaching virtually any destination on the planet, and all this is achieved automatically thanks to its GPS positioning system.

On the inside, ISIS can carry a radar system, which can monitor and track moving targets either on the ground or in the air, and gather high resolution radar images of battle zones, both by day and at night, within a range of approximately 250 kilometers on the ground and 600 in the air.

Its solar cells harness energy during the day, and split the water in his tanks into hydrogen and oxygen; the particles are recombined, at night, into a fuel cell which is used to generate the electricity necessary to power its engine.

ISIS is scheduled to enter operations in 2014, a year which might see the retirement of surveillance planes and drones such as AWACS, in favor of this clean-energy, long-range system.

Spy listening devices are wireless in the 21st century

Lives

Being the movie aficionado that I am, the other day I was watching a German movie called The Lives Of Others, about a Stasi agent in 1980s German Democratic Republic.
When I came to the scene in which the main character finds out that his home had been bugged, and that he had been listened to for years, I could not help but smile.

In fact, in this scene he uncovers the hundreds of meters of cables which were placed within his walls, and that were connecting hidden audio transmitters which enabled a listener, placed in a room in the adjacent building, to listen to all his conversations.

I had a nostalgic smile, thinking of what results the Stasi was able to achieve with its primitive equipment, especially if we compare those bugs with today’s modern listening devices.

First of all, the modern hidden transmitters do not need cables to operate, as they are powered either by a battery or can harness power from the telephone line cables. This allows for an unlimited duration of the surveillance operation.

But the most important feature is the possibility of transmitting the intelligence gathered, not via airwaves to the next building, but via a phone call to anywhere, even the other end of the world. In fact, a GSM bug can house a SIM card just like the one we have on our cellphones, and use it to place a secret phone call towards a preset number.

The person who receives the call just has to pick up the phone, wherever he is and whatever he is doing, and can comfortably listen in, without having to sit for long hours waiting for a sound or a sign.

Quite an improvement, huh?

Who needs a pilot to carry heavy loads?

Hummingbird

Boeing has just completed a run of test flight, to assess the potentials of the new version of their unmanned helicopter Hummingbird.

This new version, named A160T, is capable of carrying a sling payload just below 600 kilos of material, at a distance of approximately 150 nautical miles, and to return to its launch base. This is a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) which does not require any direct human intervention during its trip, except of course for the preparation of its payload and for programming of its itinerary towards destination.

During the tests, the Hummingbird UAV has been seriously put to work, by taking it to a height of approximately 3650 meters (12000 feet) on a full load, and making it hover on its position for a couple of minutes. Also, it has been used for night operation simulations, also in nasty weather conditions; all tests have been easily passed with flying colors and extreme precision.

The Hummingbird is one of Boeing’s spearheads in the unmanned aerial vehicles field, as it is in operations since years and holds the current record for the longest unmanned flight without refueling.

Thanks to its flexibility and precision, this specific model can be used for short range loading and unloading operations, around the clock and continuously, day and night, in order to optimize the supply (and resupply) of military material for troops deployed in war zones which may not be easily reached with conventional air or ground vehicles.

Furthermore, if properly equipped with video and photo cameras, it can be a useful tool for reconnaissance missions, target acquiring and aerial video surveillance.

A rocket powered helicopter, very easy to use

marzo 18, 2010 Technology 1 Commento

DF1

Dragonfly DF1 mini helicopter is a one seat chopper, manufactured my Swisscopter, a firm that in spite of its name is operating out of Tucson, Arizona. The particularity of this vehicle lies in the fact that motion is provided not by a normal engine placed on the copter’s body, but by small rockets housed on the tips of its rotor blades.

These rockets are powered by hydrogen peroxide, contained in two tanks placed on either side of the pilot seat. Thanks to this. The mini copter can take its pilot to a height of approximately 4000 meters, with a maximum speed of 185 kilometers per hour.

This rocket powered helicopter is very easy to maneuver, and the rockets on the blades guarantee a higher stability and fewer vibrations.

In the past, there had already been attempts at building rocket choppers, without success due to several technical issue, which seem to have been overcome by Dragonfly, that also adds an extreme ease of use and simplified controls.

Without fuel, its weight is only 106 kgs, and on a fully loaded tank it has a working range of approximately 100 minutes of continuous flight.
There are several possible fields of applications for this item, ranging from transportation of light ammunition and military equipment in war zones with a rough terrain, to aerial TV and movie shooting.

Swisscopter has already completed the first testing phase, and is expected to launch its product on the market by the end of the current year; for this reason, along with a version with a closed cockpit with a carbon fiber shell, they are also studying the possibility to create a two-seater model, for applications that require maximum concentration, and where having to pilot the copter would be a distraction.

The price for the Dragonfly micro helicopter has not been disclosed yet.

Spy recording equipment

Microrec

Not only for secret agents, police and secret traders, the usage of electronic miniature devices to secretly record conversations and phone calls is now widespread in many other fields, thanks to the ever decreasing price of this kind of spy recording equipment, which makes it affordable for almost everyone.

And this means that devices which were born as a tool for spies and secret agents, are now being used also for leisure or for professional reasons, for example to record a live concert, a public speech, or just to save notes from a company meeting or even to take quick audio notes on the go.

Miniature digital recorders come in small sizes, as the name goes. But on top of that, they can also come in a variety of shapes and appearances, which can not be immediately recognized as an audio recording device. For example, who could ever think that what looks like a car key or remote control, a watch, a pen, a lipstick or even a USB drive, is actually a micro digital recorder?

They also come with different characteristics, for example such as voice activation system, which makes sure that the recording operation is started only when it is really necessary, for example when a noise or a voice is picked up by the sensor. By doing this, the storage space on the micro recorder would be used at its best, without pauses and, most of all, without any danger of missing out on important information.

Capacity and characteristics may vary depending on the specific purpose for which your digital audio recorder is going to be used, but with their extreme versatility, anyone may need a miniature recorder, from a student to a secret agent!

A blind man can now see through his tongue

marzo 17, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Blind

Thanks to the latest developments of technology, a British soldier who got seriously wounded in Iraq, and lost his sight due to the wounds, is now capable of recognizing shapes around him, walking without aid and even read, thanks to BrainPort, a device which uses electro-tactile stimulations as a surrogate of eyesight.

At a first glance, it looks just like your MP3 player, but it is connected on one end with a pair of special glasses, while on the other end there is a sensor, similar to the one that your dentist would use to take a dental X-ray, which is placed under its user’s tongue.

Inside these glasses, there is a small video camera connected to the sensor by means of a small tube. The camera sends signals to the sensor via this tube, and thanks to tiny electrical pulses it is possible to recognize lines and shapes, which are then turned into two-dimensional black and white images.
This system is still in its experimental stage, in fact the tube which connects the glasses to the sensor makes it mandatory for its user to keep his mouth closed, thus making it impossible to carry out normal activities like eating, drinking or talking.

To solve this problem, researchers are considering the idea of placing a fixed sensor, to be located for example behind the dental arc. The soldier on whom it is being tested is fully satisfied, and although he is certainly far from having a normal life, certainly BrainPort is doing a lot for his morals.

For people with a very low eyesight (but not blind), an interesting remedy could be using a pair of night vision glasses, which work on a similar principle, as they use a camera which projects images directly on the patient’s retina, allowing him to get oriented normally and without assistance, by day or even at night.

To make sure that all phones are off, use a jammer

marzo 16, 2010 Technology No Commenti

JammerCell

The room of a cinema, a conference hall or a meeting, a church or a concert: these are all places or situations in which one may be requested to turn his mobile phone off, for different possible reasons which may range from the simple rule of keeping the place silent during a movie or a musical performance out of other people’s respect, to the need to avoid that any sensitive data or conversations may be leaked or transmitted outside.

Of course though, it may happen that someone accidentally keeps his cellphone on and it rings exactly when it shouldn’t, or that others do not turn it off on purpose, to allow a third party listener to remotely grab secrets in real time.

To avoid such kind of trouble, it may be useful to use a jammer, that is, a mobile phone breaker which prevents cellphones from working, making it impossible to communicate with the outside world, thus saving others from having to hear that annoying ring in the middle of an important scene, or preventing prying ears from listening to confidential conversations.

This is possible thanks to a jammer which would flood the area to protect with invisible signals (absolutely harmless for human health), preventing radio waves, which carry mobile phone signals, from reaching the area by making them illegible; so if someone keeps his phone on, he would have no signal and would not be able to place or receive calls, with no trouble for others and no unauthorized listeners.

The different types of jammers available on the market can block not only cellphone transmission, but also WiFi networks and Bluetooth connections.

How to blow up an underground bunker? Easy, with a robot!

marzo 16, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Mole

The US Department of Defense seems to be busy with planning weapons capable of penetrating the earth and blow themselves up near underground bunkers, in order to strike their enemies even when they hide in places deemed inaccessible.

In fact, on its official site, the DoD has launched a request for information, aimed at the supply of single use vehicles (that is, vehicles which blow themselves up along with their payload), with high mobility characteristics that make them similar to an UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle).

This underground robot, called RUM (Robotic Underground Munition) would be launched from an airplane with a parachute, and once it reaches the programmed coordinates, it would start softening the ground and then digging, thanks to a powerful auger or rig mounted on the vehicle, until it reaches the bunker wall.

Once the wall is reached, it would keep on perforating until it penetrates the inside of its target. Only at that point, the explosive contained inside would explode, destroying the vehicle along with the bunker and the people inside.
Aside from being useful to reach enemies hiding underground, this sort of kamikaze mole would be a great way to destroy ammunition or ordnance storage sites, effectively cutting enemy supplies to the war zones.

The required technology would include robot sensors, communication systems capable of staying connected even underground, and of course a drilling system which can dig holes not only through the most resistant rocks, but most of all through manmade constructions which should theoretically be attack proof.

If any of you fellow readers of this humble blog thinks that they have what it takes, all they have to do is contact the DoD website and send their details by April 9…

A robot fish, powered by a fuel cell

marzo 16, 2010 Biotechnology No Commenti

Readers of these pages may already have noticed that we mentioned robotic fish a few times, both small and medium sized, so this new item coming (of course) from Japan, and more specifically from Osaka City University, may not look exactly as something new.

In this case though, what makes this robot fish, with its 10 centimeters in size, different from others and standing out from the crowd, is the source of power it uses.

Generally in fact, this kind of miniature devices is powered with a rechargeable Li-ion battery, which can provide an operating time of a few hours. This new robot fish from the land of the Rising Sun, instead, is powered by a fuel cell, nicknamed “Power Tube”.

The energy consumption of the small magnetic engine powered by this fuel cell is approximately 100 times lower than those which use a normal lithium battery, and the final target of this research is creating robotic fish that can swim for up to three consecutive days, not only on the water surface, but that are also capable of diving and rising, thanks to a small joint placed on the front of the fish, which makes it easier to head downward or upward.

In a near future, such robotic fish might be used for a wide range of applications, for example starting with monitoring of the pollution level of waters by simply adding dedicated sensors, or checking the condition of water pipelines from the inside, or even, by simply some micro camera and a transmitter, for underwater surveillance in port areas that might be at risk of any kind of attacks.

At the current stage it is not more than a research program, but in the future a robot fish might help us in several fields and make our waters a safer and cleaner place.

Telephone eavesdropping is now available for everyone

marzo 14, 2010 Technology No Commenti

GSM Int

When talking about telephone eavesdropping, the image that comes to mind is that of a secret agent sitting in a dark room, concentrated on listening the telecommunications around him thanks to complicated and expensive machines.

A similar scenario is now available for pretty much everyone, thanks to the increasing user-friendliness of the technology used for mobile phone bugging, which can now be easily housed inside a device just a tad bigger than your average home computer.

The GSM Interceptor is a passive eavesdropping system, with a concept not much different from radio scanners. While the latter inspect the radio frequencies band in search of transmission, this GSM interception device does basically the same, but on GSM networks, either encrypted or non encrypted.

By operating on the different transmission bands, of 900 and 1800 MHz, used by GSM networks, this device is capable not only of intercepting calls, but also to display the caller telephone number, as well as all identification and authentication numbers of the intercepted handset, which can then be stored for a tailored eavesdropping operation. Intercepted calls are saved as audio files, making it easy to use them at a later stage, for example as evidence before a court of law if needed.

GSM Interceptor has an operating range of approximately 500 meters, and is capable of working in a completely invisible way, unnoticed by the GSM operator. Therefore, law enforcement agencies which need to monitor activities in a dangerous neighborhood, or are trying to track down dangerous criminals by knowing in which area they are hiding, can use this modern system to intercept their phone calls and finally put their hands on them.

In a similar fashion, individual citizens, for example managers of large plants, may be able to keep under control all phone activities in their work area.

To obtain more information on this mobile phone interception device, as well as many other tools for security and struggle against crime, we recommend that you visit the Endoacustica website.
