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: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.
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.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New technology for applying attitude optimal control to aircrafts and satellitesThe developed technology for being applied to aircrafts and satellites in order to perform attitude optimal control is cost-effective and robust against changes in the environment or in physic structure of the platform. One of the pillars of the new technology is the lack of mathematical models for the performance of control and, instead, it uses the experience gained through interaction with the environment and the platform. As a consequence of the internal behaviour of the technology, the new system is not sensitive to sampling period used.
Brunel University London posted this:DRooTES: Double Rooted Trailing Edge Serrations for quiet bladesAerofoil blade designs with double rooted serrations that reduce trailing edge noise to the maximum through destructive interference. They can be attached to existing blades so are particularly suitable for retrofitting to larger blades, such as wind turbines. They are however applicable to a wide range of blades moving in air and water, for example turbines, fans, rotary wings and fixed wings. The scale of application ranges from small drones (small blades operating at high speeds) to large wind turbines (large blades operating at slower speeds).
Brunel University London posted this:Actively-Controlled Morphing Wing Adaptive Skin for Enhanced Aircraft Control and PerformanceTo meet the ever increasing demand for more efficient, robust, and cost effective aircraft wing designs, conventional control surface methodologies need to be replaced by “morphing” technologies. Brunel University has developed a viable and realistic active wing/blade twist technology with an adaptive skin for seamless and adjustable changes in wing/blade twist angle. The technology is the ability to maintain a rigid skin with a low drag (smooth surface finish) despite high twist deformation during operation. Moreover, the structure is lightweight, and strong enough to carry aerodynamic loads.
Brunel University London posted this:Zagblade: Reduction of aero acoustic pollution by introducing novel serrated trailing edgesAn aerofoil blade design that reduces trailing edge noise by means of a saw-tooth serration filled with a porous material. The serration and porous material work constructively with each other to significantly improve the aero-acoustic performance. An optimal choice of the porous materials has been identified, where it can achieve broadband noise reduction whilst completely suppressing the vortex shedding tone. This new device is more industrially-ready than the conventional “add-on” type serration due to its superior structural integrity. In addition it produces an aerodynamic performance similar to that of the baseline aerofoil. Applicable to a wide range from applications from drones, UAVs, aircraft engines, wind turbines and fan blades.
