Russland arbeitet wohl an Überschall-Frachtflugzeug "PAK TA" - NachrichtenWirtschaft. Russland entwickelt mit dem neuen Kampfpanzer T-99 Armata derzeit nicht nur ein Gegenstück zum europäischen Leopard-Modell.

Nach Medienberichten will Moskau auch seine teilweise veraltete Flotte von Militär-Flugzeugtransportern grundlegend modernisieren. Angeblich soll im Jahr 2024 ein unter dem Projektnamen "PAK TA" entwickeltes Überschall-Super-Frachtflugzeug für 200 Tonnen Nutzlast abheben. Das wäre grob gerechnet fast die dreifache Nutzlast des US-Modells C-17 von Boeing oder fast das Doppelte des größten US-Modells C-5 Galaxy von Lockheed. Nach Berichten in russischen Medien, wie Expert Online, arbeitet das Moskauer Verteidigungsministerium seit Längerem an einer Ablösung seiner bisherigen Frachtmodelle IL-76 von Iljuschin oder der Antonow AN-124 Ruslan.

Sie wurden vor Jahrzehnten als Transporter der Ex-Sowjetarmee entwickelt.

Skylon spaceplane engine concept achieves key milestone. 28 November 2012Last updated at 03:10 ET By Jonathan Amos Science correspondent, BBC News Sabre's trick: Hot air passes over the piping, plunging to lower than -140C in just 1/100th of a second The UK company developing an engine for a new type of spaceplane says it has successfully demonstrated the power unit's enabling technology. Reaction Engines Ltd (REL) of Culham, Oxfordshire, ran a series of tests on key elements of its Sabre propulsion system under the independent eye of the European Space Agency (Esa).

Esa's experts have confirmed that all the demonstration objectives were met. REL claims the major technical obstacle to its ideas has now been removed. "This is a big moment; it really is quite a big step forward in propulsion," said Alan Bond, the driving force behind the Sabre engine concept. The company must now raise the £250m needed to complete the next phase of development. This would essentially take the project to the final designs that could be handed to a manufacturer.

As part of AeroMobil’s team Martin is responsible for company’s strategy in the areas financing, market entry, and regulatory affairs. 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. More ›

Ground effect vehicle. 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. Design[edit] Wing configurations[edit] Inverse delta[edit] Developed by Alexander Lippisch, this wing allows stable flight in ground effect through self stabilization.

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. 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.

A group photo of aerial demonstrators at the 2005 Naval Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Air Demo. 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.

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 Capacity: 18 passengers[5]Length: 131 ft ()Wingspan: 60 ft ()Height: ()Wing area: 1125 m² ()Empty weight: 38000 lbs ()Loaded weight: 44000 lbs ()Max. takeoff weight: 84000 lbs ()Powerplant: 2 × Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofan.

Chicago Department of Aviation. NY already using aerial drones — just for fun. We’re in the drone zone. The nation is flipping out over the future of unmanned aerial vehicles — but they’ve already taken off in New York. The aerial robots have soared across the public library, MTV broadcasts and the Electric Zoo Festival. Halstead flies them for real-estate shots, startups are making drone “pets” and scores of hobbyists are sending them into city skies. “Drones aren’t only for military use,” said David Quinones, head of New York firm SkyCamUsa. “They’re going to be used for so many things that are friendly and helpful. It’s really up to us.” Politicians and privacy watchdogs have been in a furor since Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos ­revealed his futuristic vision of delivering packages using drones. Last week, a tiny Colorado town mulled a proposal that would allow residents to hunt down the flying robots with shotguns in the name of privacy.

Because the devices are becoming more accessible — as low as $300 online — some reckless fliers have run into trouble. Welcome To Scaled Composites. The Martin Jetpack - Martin Aircraft Company || The Martin Jetpack.
