Miniature radar may put UAVs in the air -- GCN

http://gcn.com/blogs/emerging-tech/2014/06/uav-radar-sense-and-avoid.aspx

The biggest hurdle for unmanned aerial vehicles to clear in order to gain Federal Aviation Administration approval for use in the national airspace is development of systems to prevent them from crashing into each other and, even more important, into manned aircraft.  And the key challenge in developing such a "sense-and-avoid" system has been developing technology that can reliably detect the presence – and the course – of other aircraft and to engineer it into a package small enough and light enough for UAVs.

Researchers at the University of Denver's Unmanned Systems Research Institute may have the answer.  The group has developed a phased-array radar system that weighs only 12 ounces and is small enough to fit in the palm of one's hand.

La UPC organiza vuelos parabólicos para realizar experimentos sin gravedad
// Instituto de la Ingeniería de España

La Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña organiza este sábado varios vuelos parabólicos para estudiar el comportamiento del cuerpo humano en ausencia de gravedad. En ellos participa una estudiante de Ingeniería Industrial y Aeronática de la facultad, entre otros.

Este sábado 28 de junio, a partir de las 10 de la mañana, la Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña · BarcelonaTech (UPC) y el Aeroclub Barcelona-Sabadell realizarán vuelos parabólicos en gravedad cero para estudiar el comportamiento del cuerpo humano en ausencia de gravedad, informa la UPC en una nota de prensa.

Uno de los experimentos es de la Universidad Rovira y Virgili, se llama Bilogía-1, y su objetivo es analizar la respuesta combinada cerebro-corazón bajo condiciones de hipergravedad y gravedad reducida durante cortos periodos de tiempo. Además, se comprobará si ante un estímulo de tipo sonoro se mitigan las posibles alteraciones observadas. Se prevé que las conclusiones obtenidas puedan aplicarse a minimizar los efectos nocivos en personas que tienen pánico a volar, entre otras aplicaciones.

En los experimentos participarán una estudiante de la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenierías Industrial y Aeronáutica de Terrassa, y un estudiante de doctorado de la UPC.

Irak compra cazas rusos, cansado de esperar los aviones F-16 de EE.UU. – RT

Los aviones de combate "llegarán a Irak en dos o tres días", aseguró Al Maliki, que agregó que ayudarán a destruir los refugios de los terroristas.

El primer ministro iraquí afirmó que EE.UU. se está demorando demasiado en la entrega a Irak de 36 aviones de combate y lamentó que el retraso haya dejado a sus tropas sin apoyo aéreo.

"Sinceramente, nos engañaron cuando firmamos el contrato [con EE.UU.]", dijo Al Maliki.

A 31-year-old pilot took off from Oakland, California, Thursday, flying a single-engine plane and hoping to make history. And her name just happens to be Amelia Earhart (no relation to her famous namesake).

The modern-day Earhart is planning to recreate the same journey; an around-the-world flight that's expected to take nearly three weeks.
