Martin is a technology entrepreneur, investor, and public policy leader. He is the founder and former executive chairman of Neulogy, the first major advisory and investment boutique in Central and Eastern Europe focusing on R&D, technology transfer and technology start-ups. Currently he serves as CEO of his latest tech start-up, Nubi. Nubi is a crowdsourced, collaborative platform harnessing the global resources for hardware and manufacturing.

In addition, he still advises and sits on board of several highly innovative technology companies from Central Europe. Previously, Martin was a Senior Director and Head of Europe at the World Economic Forum. Martin sees that AeroMobil can and will be a lot more than just a combination of a cool sports car and a fun, small aircraft. Sport Flying Revolution. Fighter Gallery - Avitop.com.

A ground effect vehicle (GEV) is one that attains level flight near the surface of the Earth, making use of the aerodynamic interaction between the wings and the surface known as ground effect.

Best known are the Soviet ekranoplanes, but names like wing-in-ground-effect (WIG), flarecraft, sea skimmer, or wing-in-surface-effect ship (WISE) are also used. In recent years a large number of different GEV types have been developed for both civilian and military use. However, these craft have yet to enter widespread use. Although they might look similar and/or have related technical characteristics, ground effect vehicles are not aircraft, seaplanes, hovercraft, or hydrofoils - ground effect is a separate technology altogether. The International Maritime Organization classifies these vehicles as maritime ships. ヒロボーグループ / HX-1. Synergy Aircraft. Electric Airplanes Will Change The Future. Each year, over 3 billion people travel on airplanes.

Electric Airplanes Will Change The Future

Worldwide, airplanes produced 689 million tonnes of CO2 in 2012. These numbers are expected to grow higher in the future. According to the Air Transport Action Group, the global aviation industry produces around 2% of all human-induced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Road transport is responsible for 74% of C02 emissions. Sounds like aviation is the lesser of two evils when it comes to C02 emissions in the transportation industry. However, why settle for 2% when we could develop fully electric airplanes and cut aviation C02 emissions to zero? Worldwide, flights produced 689 million tonnes of CO2 in 2012. Electric Airplanes Will Change The FutureBy 2050, we could see over 1300 new international airports and a doubling of commercial flights worldwide. Airbus Group plans to further develop the E-Fan technology demonstrator and to produce and market two versions of the aircraft by a subsidiary named VoltAir.

Unmanned aerial vehicle

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. Its flight is controlled either autonomously by onboard computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle. The typical launch and recovery method of an unmanned aircraft is by the function of an automatic system or an external operator on the ground.[1] Historically, UAVs were simple remotely piloted aircraft, but autonomous control is increasingly being employed.[2][not in citation given] They are usually deployed for military and special operation applications, but also used in a small but growing number of civil applications, such as policing and firefighting, and nonmilitary security work, such as surveillance of pipelines.

Spike S-512. The Spike S-512 is a projected supersonic business jet, designed by Spike Aerospace, an American aerospace firm based in Boston, Massachusetts.[2] If produced, it would allow long flights for business and private travelers, such as from New York City to London, to take only three to four hours instead of six to seven.[1][3] The company plans to promote the project with an exhibit at the 2014 EAA Airventure airshow.[4] The aircraft will not have windows for the passengers, instead it will be lined with tiny cameras sending footage to thin, curved displays lining the interior walls of the fuselage.[5] Spike expects to launch the plane by December 2018.[5] Specifications[edit] Spike claims the jet will have a cruise speed of Mach 1.4-1.6.[1][3] General characteristics.
