Three world records for the Zephyr UAS

agosto 26, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Zephyr, that is, the pilotless aircraft, powered by solar energy, which a while ago was launched by QinetiQ over the Arizona skies for an endurance test, after the end of its adventure is now the official holder of three world records in its category, and those records have just been ratified by the FAI (Fédération Aeronautique Internationale).

Specifically, we are talking about the absolute endurance record for an UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) type aircraft, the endurance record in the category between 50 and 500 kilos, and the absolute altitude record, with a flight that reached a height of over 70000 feet, equivalent to roughly 21500 meters.

Zephyr is a HALE (High Altitude Long Endurance) unmanned aircraft, designed to float at high altitudes for weeks or months in a row, in order to provide continuous monitoring on a specific area. This newly established endurance record, during a test flight on the Arizona desert, had it floating in the air for over 14 days, but in its designers’ intentions, this record should be easily outdone in the future.

This is made possible by its solar power, provided by solar cell panels placed on Zephyr’s wings, and thanks to an electric engine which would use less power than the amount actually harnessed by the solar panels, in order to gain a reserve of power to be used during the night to keep the vehicle in the air and provide power for its on-board systems.

Thanks to Zephyr, it will be possible to carry out aerial monitoring missions much more flexible than those currently done via satellites, and most of all, at a much lower cost, both in terms of launch and operation, and as far as normal maintenance is concerned.
Furthermore, thanks to the fact that it is powered by a renewable energy, Zephyr is perfectly compatible with the current trend oriented towards a new generation of drones, with no pilot and zero polluting emissions, in order to keep ground personnel safe during military missions, while keeping the air clean.

Apart from a strictly military reconnaissance usage, Zephyr can also be used in the telecommunication field, acting as some sort of “flying antenna” top reach areas where a radio or telephone coverage is not present, such as for example mountainous areas in Afghanistan, where ground troops may encounter difficulties in communicating with their base due to the particular morphology of the terrain.

Of course, its long endurance characteristics also make it suitable for a scientific usage for reconnaissance and aerial photography in areas of particular interest, or for a civilian usage in telecommunications, for example to restore phone connections with areas hit by a natural disaster, in order to guide rescuers towards the most severely affected points.

Are you carrying sensitive material? Use a secure suitcase

agosto 24, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Those who have been watching old spy movies certainly remember situations in which someone was supposed to carry a suitcase containing secret documents or cash, and was using a pair of handcuffs to tie it to his hands and keep it safe.

Fortunately times have changed, and even without taking in consideration the fact that such a protection would immediately generate unwanted attention, it would certainly be inconvenient, and not as safe as one may think. Nowadays, for such transports, it is easier to use a safety suitcase. The way a safety case looks like is no different from any other suitcase used to carry documents or so, but its secret lies not only in the double-coded locks, but most of all in the alarm that protects it.

In fact, should someone take the safety suitcase away, its hidden functions would allow you to easily thwart any attempt; for example, if it reaches a minimum distance from the person to whom it is entrusted, it would give out a loud alarm, which can last up to 48 consecutive hours, making it impossible to hide forever.

With its anti theft function, it is possible to activate the self defense mode even within a 50 meters distance. At this point, it would generate a 30000 Volt electric shockwave on the case body, so that anyone carrying it would be hit by a high voltage wave, and forced to immediately leave it, running away without it and without its contents.

To carry confidential documents of a military, diplomatic or business nature, or to move large amounts of cash, this safety case is certainly an effective and discreet protection. For more information, we recommend that you visit the Endoacustica website.

A fabric that also works as a battery

agosto 24, 2010 Technology No Commenti

A group of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has just come up with a special kind of batteries that can be woven inside the fabric that makes up our clothes, in order to use the fabric itself as a source of power for portable electronic devices such as a mobile phone, an MP3 player, or in the military field, to supply juice for those devices which are now a standard equipment for modern day soldiers.

Along with being embedded in the fabric, these batteries can be housed inside a container of any shape or size, thus using its outer shell as a source of energy. In their designers’ intentions, this battery clothing could be particularly useful for military personnel, who as we said are often carrying an array of electronic devices, whose weight and encumbrance are greatly increased by the battery packs used to power them.

The researchers’ job is based on a bacteriophage virus, harmless for humans, whose nucleus is coated by a layer of proteins, and which has been used as a model to create cathodes in a ferro-fluoric material. By combining these cathodes with the relevant anodes and electrolytes in the fabric, they created a battery which would lose only a fraction of its energy, and that can be recharged just like a normal one while reaching a performance of the same level.

This virus has also been produced at room temperature, thus greatly reducing the environmental footprint of the entire production process of these batteries. The material used is much less dangerous than the ones used when manufacturing common Li-ion batteries, as the lower heat generated consequently reduces the risk of flammability. Soldiers deployed in areas where temperatures may exceed 50 degrees will certainly be relieved at the idea of reducing their load and running less risks.

A digital video camera as small as a credit card

agosto 23, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Lately Kodak has been busy launching several new products, and seems to be heading in the direction of developing smaller and thinner cameras, as we can see with Playtouch, a pocket video camera with touch screen, and Easyshare, the thinnest optical zoom camera. Among these products, another very interestingone seems to be their new miniature video camera simply called Kodak Mini.

If under the point of view of technological innovation it does not sport any relevant new feature, the main characteristics are basically two. The first one is that it is a waterproof video camera, which you can take along with you in the swimming pool to quickly and easily shoot underwater videos and pictures.

The second characteristic is in its size. In fact, the new Kodak Mini is just 89 millimeters long, which allows its manufacturers to proudly boast that it is the first retail type video camera as big (or rather, as small) as a credit card.

Of course, it is thicker when compared to an actual credit card (not that much though, just 13 mm), but quite sure its tiny size makes it an interesting object for leisurely use. Thanks to the pop-out USB plug (as we have seen in the popular Flip series), all you need to do is press a button to connect your Kodak Mini to a computer and quickly download any images or videos.

The only imperfection one can complain about us the very small capacity of its built-in memory (a mere 128 Mb), although it is sold with a Micro SD 2 Gb memory card included in the price. All this with a 640×480 resolution and a reasonable 100-dollar price tag.

Here comes another robotic fish from Japan

agosto 23, 2010 Technology No Commenti

In the last few months we have seen quite a lot of robotic fish, capable of swimming freely in the water (or at least, inside a bowl or aquarium), designed by research institutes for a wide range of possible purposes, ranging from monitoring of waters’ health all the way to behavioral studies on other (real) fish.

This latest example of robotic fish, produced in Japan by Sedensha, is capable of replicating the movements of a small fish in a pretty accurate way, thanks to its silicone body, which on the inside houses an equally small chip.

This chip is what actually determines the fish’s direction, y simply sending some very small electrostatic impulses to its flexible body, which in turn will respond to the stimulus by turning left or right, climbing up or heading down with a sinuous shake of its tail.

To make this motion more realistic and smooth, and avoid the typical “stop and go” movement that many of his peers sport, this cute micro robot’s body has been filled with silicone oil. By doing this, every shake of the tail is smoother and its movement is as realistic as it may get.

For now it is unknown how they are planning to use it, as it is just a prototype now, with a cute look thanks to the small eyes (not real, of course) mounted on the front, which give it a friendly demeanor, at least in the eyes of humans. If we were other fishes swimming in the same bowl with him, we would certainly wonder who this strange guy is, but it looks like no one asked the other fishes’ opinion!

Iran has unveiled its first drone

agosto 23, 2010 Technology No Commenti

As foreseen by many observers, not only the armies of Western countries have access to drones or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), to be used either for reconnaissance purposes and, with the necessary modifications and adaptations, also to release bombs at a maximum distance of approximately 100 kilometers from the launching point. In fact, Iran too, during its Defense Industry Day, has just introduced its UAV, christened Karar.

The Iran-made Karar, which president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in his usual emphatic tone, has called an “ambassador of death for Iran’s enemies” can be used either as a reconnaissance vehicle thanks to its image recording and transmitting capabilities, or as an attack weapon to carry out bombing missions against ground targets.

The Stealth type cruise missiles mounted on Karar’s wings can be released from different heights, and reach the preset target thanks to their GPS navigation system. On board of this drone it is also possible to load, as well as reconnaissance equipment for non-offensive missions, four missiles of this kind or, alternatively, two 115-kilos bombs and a 230-kilos precision missile.

In the Iranian government’s intentions, Karar should act as a deterrent against any possible enemy attacks, in order to prevent any possible strike against the Islamic Republic’s territory. Therefore, it is easy to see the connection with the nuclear armaments’ development program that Iran is pursuing, secretly or not, since a few years.

Thanks to this unmanned aircraft, the ayatollahs’ country is trying to protect itself against any preemptive attack (or, as Ahmadinejad would put it, “Zionist aggressions”) that can sweep that program away. Such attacks are on top of the Israeli and US agenda in case Iran does not respect UN restrictions and should any negotiation come to a halt.

Defense from wiretapping? You don’t need a law

agosto 22, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Protection against telephone interception, that the Italian government would like to delegate to what looks more like a way to prevent police forces and judiciary from using it in investigation, does not need a legislative shortcut, but with a bit of salt and a relatively low expense, can be simply done by anyone of us.

All we need is the right technological devices and the job is easy: our working environment and our homes, along with any phone lines in there, can simply be protected from any unauthorized prying ears, and any hidden listening devices can easily be tracked down and neutralized.

An anti interception device can come in sizes just a tad bigger than a cellphone or a digital handycam, but despite its tiny size it can do a great job, allowing you to locate any hidden bug or microphone concealed inside your office with the aim of picking up your confidential conversations.

There are several models which, working on a wide range of radio frequencies, are able to detect not only the presence of hidden RF transmitters, but also of miniature video cameras operating wirelessly. In the same fashion, it is possible to detect the presence of active mobile phones, which in turn allows you to discover any listening bugs working on the GSM network and transmitting their intelligence as if they were normal mobile phones.

When employing these devices, or even by combining two different types together, it is then possible to keep your restricted areas completely secure and protected from unwanted listeners, thus avoiding any possible leak which could jeopardize the results of an entire professional life.

To get the best from your interception defense systems, it is advisable to obtain advice from experts in this field, who can give you an advice and a solution tailored on your needs. Therefore, for your bug sweeping needs, we recommend that you visit the Endoacustica website.

Recording conversations around you from your mobile? Now you can

agosto 20, 2010 Technology No Commenti

If in Italy a great controversy arose from environmental recordings made by a call girl during her encounters with the Prime Minister, which Berlusconi’s press firepower immediately deemed as illegal, in the US, and more specifically in New York State, a Court of Appeal has just ruled that recording private conversations using a mobile phone is legal, if this is done for a legitimate reason.

During a lawsuit concerning a disputed will, in which an old deceased lady’s sons were arguing over her properties, one of them brought into court the hidden recording of a conversation among several family members, including the deceased mother, during which the latter was giving instructions on what to do with her estate properties after her death, which happened a few days later.

To make his position stronger and make sure that her mother’s will was respected, the son brought this recording, taken with a simple 1-dollar off-the-shelf iPhone app. His stepfather disputed usage of such evidence, suing the son for using a illegal recording, but the court accepted it as the conversation had not been recorded with a malicious intent or worse, but simply to make sure that his mother’s last instructions were followed according to her will.

This ruling might open new possibilities as far as usage of recordings before a court of law is concerned, when recordings are taken without all involved parties’ consent, stating that what matters is the intention behind this recording. Sure enough, Prime Minister Berlusconi should be very careful if he happens to find himself somewhere in NY State and use his Italian Stallion antics with local call girls…

An almost invisible Bluetooth hearing aid

When you need to resort to a hearing aid to improve your hearing conditions, often the biggest problem for those who use it is of a psychological nature, as it may be revealing its wearer’s conditions to the people around them, with unpleasant consequences.

To provide assistance to people with hearing loss problems wishing to keep their condition as confidential as possible, Beltone has created True, a hearing aid of an extremely small size which, aside from working just like any other similar device, also features some technologically advanced interesting capabilities.

In fact, True sports a Bluetooth connectivity, which makes it possible to connect it automatically to any other Bluetooth devices around it, and to carry out a conversation without stress, simply by clipping its microphone on your clothes; at this point, true’s wearer will be able, for example, to talk through a cellphone while listening to his counterpart’s voice directly inside the ear, even if the phone is physically a few meters away.

Along with this, thanks to its 2.4 GHz wireless capabilities, it can pick up sounds from electronic devices such as a TV set or stereo, and have them transmitted directly into the ear canal. By adjusting the volume as you please, you will be able, for example, to listen to music in background while talking to your friends, with no problem caused by loud music disturbing the conversation. Volume and sound quality can be adjusted via a handy remote control.

All this is made possible by a circuit which is two times faster than other normal hearing aids, with a four times larger memory capacity, which is able of maintaining a high speed wireless connection, allowing to carry on a conversation without any transmission gaps.

An almost human prosthesis for those who lost a leg

According to a report recently published on the New York Times, war veterans who have lost a limb due to wounds, or patients who suffered an amputation after an illness such as diabetes, might soon be able to come back to an almost normal life.

This would happen thanks to a prosthetic knee, called X2, which is equipped with an array of high profile technology, which allows for more realistic movements, and most of all allows the bionic leg to react properly when it encounters obstacles, such as stairs, uneven terrain or stones, all things that have always posed a serious threat to those who are forced to walk with an artificial leg.

In fact, the X2 prosthetic knee is equipped with an array of motion sensors, gyroscopes and micro processors, which give the patient the opportunity of enjoying a wider variety of movements, helping him to distribute his weight more evenly between the artificial leg and the real one, which for obvious sensitivity reasons tends to be overloaded. Thanks to X2 it will then be easier to walk down a slope, up a flight of stairs and, in general, enjoy a higher precision of movement.

Compared to similar models, X2 is lighter and smaller in size, and the battery that powers it is capable of a longer life. The cost that the Department of Defense should cover is of approximately 30000 dollars for each item; they are planning to supply some 200 pieces within the next year to veteran in need.

This figure is just a drop in the sea if compared to the 5000 new cases of people finding themselves in this situation every year, and to the 45000 who are already suffering, but certainly it is a first step forward, most of all under the point of view of morale.
