Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Power Switch for high radiation EnvironmentsCSIC through the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona - Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica, has developed a novel JFET (Junction Field-Effect Transistor) which is very suitable to be used in high-radiation-level environments such as Space, high-flying aircraft, particles accelerator or radio-medical equipment. Due to its particular configuration, the device presents very high radiation hardness. Industrial partners from the electronic industry focused on radiation detection are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Altimeter based on radar, inertial and atmospheric pressure systems for aerial, acrobatic and unmanned vehicles.The Intelligent Systems Research Group of the University of Alcalá presents an altimeter based on radar, inertial and atmospheric pressure systems for aerial, acrobatic and unmanned vehicles. It is a sensor capable of measuring height with respect to the ground integrating radar, barometric and inertial technologies. The group seeks to achieve licensing, collaboration or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies or research groups related to the aeronautical and aerospace sector.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Novel and simple procedure for dispersing graphene derivatives in chemically curable resins.The Laboratory of Adhesion and Adhesives of the University of Alicante and the company Dental Global Training, have developed a new procedure to incorporate efficiently graphene derivatives (nanofibers, nanosheets, nanoparticles) in chemically cured resins by using an in situ polymerization technique. The method is very simple and fast, it provides an excellent dispersion of the graphene derivatives in both the solid components of the resin and in the cured polymer matrix, and is entirely friendly with the environment. The novel method does not require the use of organic solvents nor water, ultrasounds, and high pressure/temperature. The resulting resin composites show excellent mechanical properties, good wear resistance, easy manipulation and increase the insolubility in oral fluids, and therefor they have special interest in applications in odontology, traumatology and non-medical applications too (automobile, construction, civil engineering, aeronautics, space engineering, electronics and optics). It is looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for its commercial exploitation.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New technology for Air Traffic Management.A research group from a Spaniard university has designed a new system based on optimal control technology for Air Traffic Management (ATM). The new approach is mainly characterized by its adaptability capacity in situations where there are more than two aircrafts. Potential collaborations with international/national research centres and companies interested in applying the technology are sought.

The invention, that’s been arising interest in the business sector, locally and nationally, aims at the production of habitable modules using the soil in inhospitable locations, and it was specifically thought for Mars. The advantages of this process are the total automation, and it distinguishes itself from other solutions proposed until now for providing a closed construction, airtight, with total habitability, safe against cosmic radiation with other devices, and the possibility of holding distinctive functions. He University is looking for partners that may be interested in financing the development of this tool.

The invention respects to a product with excellent energy absorption capacity to impact and sound damping for vehicle applications, houses, machinery, equipment and devices with superior performance.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Control system that allows drones to flight autonomouslyResearchers from the University of Alicante have developed a control system, which allows a greater versatility in flight for UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles also colloquially called drones). With this system a vehicle can switch between different flight plans or define in real time the optimum aircraft movement depending on the environment and the information received by its sensors. Moreover, this system also includes a communication mechanism that allows a ground station to define new flight plans while the aircraft is in the air. This system is a significant advance over existing systems, as latter ones require prior planning to take off and have a reduced flexibility when the vehicles are in flight. It is applicable to all types of aircraft using the communication protocol MAVLINK.
Fundació URV posted this:New device and method to detect the temperature remotelyThe technology allows to detect the temperature remotely using the emission of light by nanoparticles of a luminescent material doped with lanthanide ions (Yb+3, Er+3, Tm+3 and HO+3, among others) deposited on the object to find its temperature. Excitation with infrared radiation of these luminescent particles produces light emission in different regions of the visible light collected by a sensor to obtain an intensity ratio.
