Title          
Autonomous Vehicle Lab, U. of Maryland 
   
 
Abstract    

Robot vehicles modeled after insects. By Joe Conroy and Andrew Hyslop.

The notion that small, even very small, UAVs might have practical uses arose in the early 1990s. In 1992, DARPA conducted a workshop titled "Future Technology-Driven Revolutions In Military Operations". One of the topics in the workshop was "mobile microrobots". The idea of using very small "microdrones" was discussed, and after initial skepticism the idea started to gain momentum.

The RAND Corporation released a paper on the microdrone concept in 1994 that was widely circulated. DARPA conducted a series of "paper studies" and workshops on the concept in 1995 and 1996, leading to early engineering studies by the Lincoln Laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the

Title          
Elon Musk Gives a Tour of SpaceX 
   
 
Abstract    
SpaceX was founded in 2002 by former PayPal entrepreneur and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs to enable the colonization of Mars. It has developed the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 launch vehicles, both of which were designed from conception to eventually become reusable, and the Dragon spacecraft which is flown into orbit by the Falcon 9 launch vehicle to supply the International Space Station with cargo. A manned version of Dragon is in development. [Source - Wikipedia]

11th International Autonomous Underwater Vehi... 
   
 
Abstract    

AUVSI and ONR's 11th International Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Competition, July 29 - August 3, 2008, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center TRANSDEC Facility, San Diego, California, USA. Co-sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the goal of this competition is to advance the development of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) by challenging a new generation of engineers to perform realistic missions in an underwater environment. This event also serves to foster ties between young engineers and the organizations developing AUV technologies.

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI...

Title          
United States Space Explorations 1958 
   
 
Abstract    
The film describes preparation and launch of five satellites and two space probes during 1958. On January 31, a Jupiter vehicle launched Explorer I into space. Data from this satellite was used to identify the van Allen radiation belts. On March 17, a Vanguard I rocket launched an Earth satellite with solar batteries. Data from the mission was used to determine that the Earth is slightly pear-shaped. On March 26, Explorer III was launched to further study the van Allen belts, micrometeoroid impacts, and internal and external temperatures. Explorer IV, launched on July 26, was intended to study radiation and temperature data. A lunar probe, ABLE I, was intended to measure radiation, magnetic fields of Earth and the Moon, density of micrometeoric matter, and internal temperatures. A four-stage rocket was used in the launch. However, a turbo-pump failed and the liquid oxygen pump stopped, resulting in a failed mission. On October 10, Pioneer I was launched by an ABLE vehicle. First and second stage velocity was less than desired and the probe did not leave Earth orbit. Attempts to attain escape velocity were unsuccessful. On December, a Jupiter boost vehicle was used to launch Juno II, with Pioneer III as the payload. Escape velocity...

Title          
Hovercraft Design - Maryland Part 1 of 3 
   
 
Abstract    

This is part 1 of 3 videos from the hovercraft design competition at the University of Maryland, Colllege Park. Part of ENES 100 program. The idea was to keep the hovercraft on the black guide line as it moved forward through the channel. There were two tricky turns the vehicles were needed to maneuver. A Lego Mindstorms NXT kit was programmed to control the vehicle.

A short extract from Wikipedia - (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hovercraft) A Hovercraft, or Air-Cushion Vehicle (ACV), is an amphibious vehicle or craft, designed to travel over any sufficiently smooth surface supported by a cushion of slowly moving, high-pressure air, ejected downwards against the surface close below it.Hovercraft have one or mo...

Title          
Lamina Flow Stirling Engine 
   
 
Abstract    

This amazingly simple engine runs at 700rpm heated only by a small candle.

Thermoacoustic hot air engines (Sonic heat pump and refrigeration or thermoacoustic heat pump and refrigeration) of which nearly all are thermoacoustic stirling engines is a technology that uses high-amplitude sound waves in a pressurized gas to pump heat from one place to another - or uses a heat temperature difference to induce sound, which can be converted to electricity with high efficiency, with a (piezoelectric) loudspeaker.

This type of heat pump or refrigerator has no

Abstract    

The newest NASA animation about the constellation program.

Constellation is a NASA program with the stated goal of gaining significant experience in operating away from Earth's environment, developing technologies needed for opening the space frontier and conducting fundamental science.[1] Constellation was developed through the Exploration Systems Architecture Study, which determined the best way for NASA to pursue the goals laid out in President George W. Bush's Vision for Space Exploration and the NASA Authorization Act of 2005.

Title          
Stirling engine example 
   
 
Abstract    

This is intended as an example of how much power can be produced out of nothing but heat and air density, and how your car's engine has to overcome this.

Stirling's air engine (as it is referred to in early text books - see hot air engine history) was invented by Reverend Dr Robert Stirling and patented by him in 1816. When the name became simplified to Stirling engine is not known, but may be as recently as the mid twentieth century when the Philips company began to experiment with working fluids other than air - the instruction book for their MP1002CA (see below) still refers to it as an 'air engine'. The main subject of that original patent was a heat exchanger which Stirling called the "economiser" for its enhancement of fuel economy in a variety of applications. The patent also described in detail the employment of one form of the economiser in an air engine, in which application ...
