Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II (2015) The F-35 has extremely stealth and agile technology, including an integrated sensor package and a range of advanced weaponry such as Sidewinder and Storm Shadow and Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs). The single seat fighter has high speed data networking, integrated avionics and sensor fusion which helps to combine the information from off and on board sensors. Pilot will be more aware of the situation and be better able to identify his target and deliver the weapons. Information can be relayed more quickly to other control and command nodes. There are electro-hydrostatic actuators driven by a flight control system.
They also have different types of poles for speed. The kind of suits they were usually skin tight to reduce air resistance, they also can wear padding for protection. Lastly one of the equipments are wax for the skis to increase control, glide and speed. To make the event more interesting they added more things you can do in this event like Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super Giant Slalom, Downhill, and Super Combined. For the safety of the skiers they need to wear the helmet to protect their head if they fall and won’t get as much damage without the helmet.
In the 1970s, aircraft such as the A-10, F-14, F-15, F-16, and F/A-18 became part of the US military’s arsenal along with the introduction of the AIM-120 air-to-air missile. These new technologies would be key to gaining and maintaining air superiority and supporting ground forces. The F-117 and B-2 stealth aircraft made their debut in the 1980s and 1990s, respectively, which would prove instrumental in subsequent conflicts. They would be able to bypass enemy air defenses and strike targets of high military value. Other critical tools that came on-line to achieve military objectives were offensive cyber capabilities and Global Positioning System (GPS) technology coupled with precision-guided munitions (PGM), such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).
AN ANALYSIS OF THE BENEFITS OF MOTION SIMULATORS IN FIFTH GENERATION FIGHTER PILOTS' TRAINING ABSTRACT In military aviation, the flight simulators’ use has proliferated over recent years in order to train fifth generation fighter pilots. With these simulators, the pilots can carry out real-time flights resulting in seeing their faults and can perform emergency drills prior to real flights. Since we can not risk losing the aircraft and the pilot himself in the flight training process, flight simulators are of great importance to adapt the fighter pilots competently to real flights aboard the fifth generation aircrafts. The real flights are impossible to simulate thoroughly on the ground. To some extend, the fixed-based simulators may assist
Security Drone is a senior design project that has been done by Kuwait University engineering students. It is simply an unmanned airborne vehicle with a high degree of autonomy. The drone shall be used to monitor a certain factory using a camera with face recognition technology and sensors that can detect fires in its area of vision. The drone should be able to navigate through the factory, locate the fire, and launch the alarms. Although this is the only thing that the Security Drone can do, there is a various ethical issues in the Security Drone need to be considered.
If a wing is designed more asymmetric, there is no need for extra angle of attack to produce more lift. Airfoils must be chosen according to purpose of aircraft. Passenger planes or cargo planes have considerably bigger wings than jets and they have mostly different aerodynamic characteristic. Determination of dimension of the wings is the first step of wing design. The other essential design step is deciding type of airfoil.
and to cooperatively pass their data through the network to main location. the more modern networks are bidirectional, also enabling control of sensor activity. WSN technology can also applied to create a new concept and wide development for smart vehicle to provide intelligence, comfort, and security and to improve the performance of driver. Here, three-axis accelerometers are used to measure the acceleration variation of vehicle body in X ,Y and Z-axis. The presented system detects the dangerous driving behavior presented in this paper are from the recognition of driving states.
The ability to fly all around the world without having to ever pay for a plane ticket again or the ability to be invisible and steal all of the expensive wardrobes you have always dreamt of having? This has to be one of the most difficult decisions ever. Well, when you think about it, you can activate your invisibility power and sneak your way into a plane without a flight attendant or anyone else knowing. According to This American Life 178: Invisible Man vs. Hawkman, John Hodgman stated, " men lead towards flying, women to invisibility." Not because I am a woman I chose invisibility, but I do not think that there is anything else you can do with the ability of flight other than flying around all day; which I think is rather boring.
The fuel had to have a chemical mixed in before combustion to be able to ignite. Last but most definitely not least, the wing shape the plane utilizes is the delta wing, the same as other recognizable supersonic planes like the Concord and the XB-70 Valkyrie. The delta wing has many advantages over traditional swept wings when it comes to supersonic flight making it an obvious necessity. The most notable advantages are that the delta wing has an increased lift at the high angle of attack used, and the unique shape decreases drag at supersonic speeds. This was great for supersonic flight but during takeoff if the plane was fully loaded with fuel, over half of its 170,000lb fully loaded weight was fuel, it couldn’t actually take off (Kucher 1).
