Nano Air Vehicles (NAV)

Recommended Posts

La DARPA ha commissionato studi su microvelivoli in grado di operare compiti di ricognizione, rilevamento chimico ecc.

 

Guardate cosa si sono inventati: http://www.difesanews.it/archives/completato-lo-sviluppo-del-nano-air-vehicle-nav-hummingbird

 

Ancora più rivoluzionario il progetto di Lockheed Martin:

http://www.lockheedmartin.com/products/nano-air-vehicle.html

 

"While the other NAV program competitors are pursuing flapping wing and rotorcraft-type NAV designs, Lockheed Martin’s entry borrows its mono-copter design from the maple seed... with some novel 21st century adaptations definitely never devised by Mother Nature.

 

Incredibly, system propulsion (for lift and direction) is courtesy of a tiny, solid two-stage rocket thruster embedded on the blade’s tip, giving the nano vehicle extra range and endurance. While stability and guidance are controlled on-board the air vehicle, top level navigation and other commands are controlled off-board.

 

Besides controlling lift and pitch, the single winged NAV will also house telemetry, communications, navigation, imaging sensors and the power source. The nano vehicle is designed to carry a payload module –– close to the size of a 2 gram aspirin tablet — which will be interchangeable based on mission requirements, such as chemical and biological detection, infrared surveillance and other purposes."

Non so se può centrarci molto, tempo fa avevo letto di questo:

http://lescienze.espresso.repubblica.it/multimedia/home/28276764

 

in pratica hanno preso una blatta, le hanno infilato elettrodi nel torace per controllarne i movimenti, fibre ottiche nei bulbi oculari per regolare la potenza (a quanto pare le blatte volano solo in presenza di luce) e le hanno messo sul dorso il necessario per far funzionare l'apparato.

La cosa più interessante è che le blatte coinvolte nell'esperimento non sono diventate zombie come si potrebbe pensare; al contrario con questo metodo hanno potuto tornare a una vita normale conclusa la loro funzione

Interessantissimo!

Un solo appunto: sono coleotteri, non blatte. Definirli tali sarebbe come tradurre "Beatles" come "Blatte" e non con il corretto termine "Maggiolini".

Thnx anyway!

boh sull'articolo parlava di una specie di scarafuni del luogo, volendo oggi posso andare a controllare :) .

i bacherozzi potrebbero valere milioni XD

 

Piccolo OT: la DARPA è veramente la fortezza delle scienze, quanta roba sviluppano! Sarebbe bello un giorno andare a lavorare lì :rolleyes: ...

LE ZANZARE ISPIRANO LA COSTRUZIONE DI PICCOLI ROBOT !!

Adesso arrivano le zanzare... SICARIO?

Sempre in tema,

UK shows Black Hornet UAV in action

 

The UK Ministry of Defence has released the first images showing the Black Hornet nano unmanned air system being used by its personnel in Afghanistan under an acquisition worth £20 million ($31 million).


Described by its Norwegian developer Prox Dynamics as a "nanocopter", the 4.7in (120mm) rotor diameter PD-100 air vehicle was first used on deployed operations in May 2012....

 

each Black Hornet system comprises two 4in-long air vehicles and a ground control element. With a 25min flight endurance carrying a daylight camera payload, the 16 gram PD-100 can transmit video and still imagery to a handheld terminal from a range of up to 0.5nm (1km)...

 

The MoD has a total of 160 Black Hornet units on order via the UK's Marlborough Communications, with the company also responsible for providing personnel training, repair activities and spares.


"Previously we would have sent soldiers forward to see if there were any enemy fighters hiding inside a set of buildings. Now we are deploying Black Hornet to look inside compounds and to clear a route through enemy-held spaces," says a British Army officer
