Novashine is the latest dental product of Nanova, a…

France to arm military surveillance drones

France is set to arm drones that are currently used exclusively for surveillance and intelligence, a first for the French military, the defense minister said Tuesday. Florence Parly said the decision will initially apply only to the six unarmed Reaper surveillance drones that France bought from the United States. Most of them, based in Africa’s Sahel region, are involved in the fight against Islamic extremists. Parly did not specify a timeframe for when they would be armed or what…

A new way to find pilots for US Navy unmanned aircraft

Volunteers try out the Selection for UAS Personnel, or SUPer. Developed with support from the Office of Naval Research, SUPer is a series of specialized tests assessing cognitive abilities and personality traits, to identify potential Navy and Marine Corps unmanned aviation systems (UAS) operators. Credit: Naval Aerospace Medical Institute Before acceptance to flight school, aspiring naval pilots must pass the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB)—a rigorous intellectual exercise that evaluates things like aviation and nautical knowledge, math and engineering skills,…

Building Blockchain with Hyperledger : Developer’s Guide (Part 2)

Welcome to the Blockchain Revolution! In the last article of this developer’s guide, we went on to explore the basic building blocks starting from creating our own network to writing the client apps. Quickly summarizing, IBM’s block chain is based on Linux Foundation’ open source Hyperledger fabric. This fabric is like an operating system for data sharing networks, marketplaces, micro-currencies and decentralized digital communities.We recommend that you do a quick recap of our previous Blockchain developer’s guide before diving into the…

Using a camera to spot and track drones

EPFL researchers have developed algorithms capable of detecting and tracking small flying objects using a simple camera. Credit: istock EPFL researchers have shown that a simple camera can detect and track flying drones. Plus, the lightweight, energy-efficient and inexpensive technology could be installed directly on the drones themselves and enhance safety in the skies. The rising number of drones in air space poses numerous challenges. Topping that list is our ability to simply detect these small unmanned aerial vehicles. Periodic…

MU Engineering faculty’s company set to revolutionize cryopreservation

Xu Han Han and his team have developed a novel cryopreservation medium trademarked as C80EZ® that eliminates the need for liquid hydrogen and allows cells to be preserved long-term at much higher temperatures, leading to better samples for research materials, a longer shelf life for clinically transplantable cells and tissue and lower overall preservation costs. Photos by Amy Parris. A company founded by an MU College of Engineering researcher and housed within the Missouri Innovation Center is completely reshaping the…

Very Low Frequency Radio Waves Protect Earth » Curious Cat Science and Engineering Blog

Very Low Frequency Radio Waves Protect Earth Posted on August 5, 2017  Comments (0) Very Low Frequency (VLF) radio communications signals are transmitted from ground stations at huge powers to communicate with submarines deep in the ocean. While these waves are intended for communications below the surface, they also extend out beyond our atmosphere, shrouding Earth in a VLF bubble. This bubble is even seen by spacecraft high above Earth’s surface, such as NASA’s Van Allen Probes, which study electrons…

Mizzou summer program gives KAU students real-world experience

An international program offering hands-on, interdisciplinary projects that prepare students for real-world issues facing engineers in their home country is sure to attract high-quality attendees. And when it offers exposure to new cultures and novel educational methods, it attracts the best and brightest. In its fourth year, the University of Missouri’s King Abdulaziz University Internship for Engineering students has the formula down pat. The six week-long internship saw 24 students from King Abdulaziz University (KAU) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, come…
