Chicago (UPI) Aug 28, 2015
Boeing this week introduced its Compact Laser Weapons System, a portable device capable of using an invisible laser to take down targets several hundreds of meters away. The aerospace company designed the device to focus energy on a small enough spot to heat and destroy targets, including moving ones, like drones.

Lanzar y recuperar UAVs desde un C130 Hércules (Portaaviones aéreos 7)
// Blog.SandglassPatrol.com

 

 

 

 

El sueño de tener un avión nodriza que lance y recoja a otros aviones más pequeños es viejo en el mundo de la aviación. ¿Será esta vez el intento definitivo?

 

DARPA ha emitido una convocatoria para recoger ideas y diseños, hasta Septiembre, para su programa Gremlins. Los Gremlins serían aviones no tripulados que se lanzarían/recuperarían desde un avión nodriza Hércules. Sería una forma rápida de desplegar grandes enjambres de aviones no tripulados, que podrían realizar distintos tipos de misiones, desde reconocimiento a ataque con armamento llevado por el UAV, o convirtiéndose el propio UAV en un UAV kamikaze.

 

Si estáis pensando en presentar alguna propuesta, os dejo el enlace, pero os aviso que piden como poco tener la Green Card

Un ala volante para explorar Marte
// Blog.SandglassPatrol.com

Si Northrop preparaba un ala volante para Venus, la NASA lo quiere poner en Marte.

 

 


La NASA ha ensayado un ala volante como prototipo del que quieren usar en Marte para explorarlo. Se llama Prandtl-m, Preliminary Research Aerodynamic Design to Land on Mars, y un homenaje a Ludwig Prandtl, pionero de la aerodinámica.

El Prandtl-m estará basado en el Prandtl-d, ensayado en vuelo en la tierra en Junio de 2015.

Para ensayar las condiciones de presión y densidad de la atmósfera marciana está previsto lanzar desde un globo a 100000ft de altitud un prototipo del Pradtl-m. Hasta ahora, todas las aeronaves que hemos diseñado los seres humanos han volado en la atmósfera terrestre. Y aunque las ecuaciones que gobiernan su aerodinámica no cambien, sí lo hacen las condiciones de contorno. Y esta prueba validaría la aerodinámica de esta aeronave en una atmósfera distinta.

Carbures diseña plataformas petrolíferas para Pemex en fibra de carbono

  • La Compañía firma un contrato de ingeniería de €11 millones con el gigante mexicano
  • La ingeniería de plataformas petrolíferas es el primer paso para comenzar a construirlas con materiales compuestos que reemplazan al metal por su capacidad anticorrosiva y duración.
  • El contrato con Pemex tiene una duración de 27 meses. Carbures prevé diversificar su actividad en México hacia los sectores de automoción y aeronáutico.

 

Madrid, 17 de agosto de 2015. Carbures abre la vía para profundizar en el negocio del crudo. La Compañía especializada en el diseño y fabricación de estructuras en materiales compuestos ha firmado un contrato de 200 millones de pesos mexicanos (11 millones de euros) para el desarrollo de plataformas y otras infraestructuras petrolíferas con Petróleos Mexicanos, Pemex. Carbures firma el contrato con Pemex mediante su filial mexicana de Carbures, PYPSA, y las tareas de ingeniería se circunscriben a los activos petrolíferos que la petrolera mexicana tiene en las regiones marinas Norte y Sur de México.

 

El contrato se ha puesto en marcha en agosto de 2015 y tiene una duración de 27 meses, lo que permite asegurar a la compañía PYPSA unos ingresos recurrentes hasta finales de 2017. La relevancia de este contrato es que se trata del paso previo a la fabricación de plataformas petrolíferas con materiales compuestos, que reemplacen a las actuales de metal, mucho menos resistentes a la corrosión del agua marina y, en general, a las inclemencias meteorológicas. Esta es otra de las aplicaciones de los materiales compuestos para obra civil que Carbures desarrolla. Carbures ya construyó, para Acciona Infraestructuras, unos pilares en materiales compuestos que soportaban el peso de un nuevo espigón de unos 100 metros de longitud para la ejecución de la obra de ampliación de un puerto canario. Se trató de un modelo de obra marítima pionero en el mundo, cuyo potencial para los materiales compuestos es enorme.

 

PYPSA, filial de Carbures en México, es una empresa de consultoría mexicana con X años de experiencia en la ejecución de este tipo de servicios de ingeniería. Los servicios objeto del contrato consisten en ingeniería de proyectos de infraestructura, investigación, estudios, dictámenes y/o análisis técnicos y estudios de factibilidad técnico – económica, y se prestarán en la sede de las oficinas centrales de PYPSA, en Ciudad de México y en la ciudad de Poza Rica, Estado de Veracruz.

 

"Como todas las operaciones de crecimiento inorgánico, la adquisición de PYPSA se hizo por motivos estratégicos para darnos entrada a nuevos mercados y líneas de actividad en los que el potencial de crecimiento es tremendo por la gran aplicabilidad y conveniencia de los materiales compuestos", explica el Presidente de Carbures, Rafael Contreras.

 

"Además de plataformas petrolíferas, México es un país que nos ofrece una gran variedad de líneas de actividad, además de en las plataformas petrolíferas, en los sectores de automoción y aeronáutico", añade Contreras.

 

El Consejero Delegado de Carbures, José María Tarragó, afirma que "este contrato con Pemex es el inicio de un camino que, estamos plenamente convencidos, nos va a llevar muy lejos en México y nos va a permitir la entrada en otros sectores estratégicos para la compañía".

 

 

 

 

Sobre Carbures

 

Carbures es un grupo industrial especializado en la ingeniería y fabricación de estructuras con materiales compuestos, como la fibra de carbono, para los sectores relacionados con la movilidad, como el aeronáutico, la automoción, el ferroviario, el deportivo y el de obra civil. A lo largo de una década, Carbures ha desarrollado una tecnología propia que le posiciona como la compañía líder en Europa en la fabricación, tanto en series largas como cortas, de piezas de fibra de carbono para aviones, coches, trenes, bicicletas y estructuras y vigas de construcción.
