  • Electric Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) 2013-2023 : Researchmoz.us

    Thousands of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) will be deployed in the next few years for both civil and military missions. Early adoption of new technologies from smart skin to structural components and intelligent motors with integral gearing will be employed. Electric power makes possible the use of wheel power for take-off because electric motors can give maximum torque from stationary.  ...


  • Coastal wetlands can protect against rising sea levels and increasing storms

    Coastal wetlands can substantially reduce erosion, property damage and human deaths in the face of rising sea levels and severe storms, recent research concludes. Understanding whether wetlands can provide effective coastal protection is essential to developing effective climate change adaptation strategies. Over a third of the global population live in coastal areas, and the number of ...

  • Berkeley researchers create first hyperlens for sound waves

    Ultrasound and underwater sonar devices could “see” a big improvement thanks to development of the world’s first acoustic hyperlens. Created by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), the acoustic hyperlens provides an eightfold boost in the magnification power of sound-based imaging technologies. Clever physical manipulation of the ...
