Topic: Combat loading shot gunNot to pick nits, but we carried extra ammo in carriers that snapped shut. I notice that dude has all his spare ammo in a handy carrier right at his belt buckle. They’re all poking up where he can get at them easily.Galileo fixes Europe's geographic position in HistoryHome / Navigation / Galileo fixes Europe’s geographic position in History GALILEO – Europe’s answer to GPS and GLONASS has passed a historic milestone this week; The very first determination of a ground location using only Galileo satellites currently in orbit is now done. This first position fix of longitude, latitude and height took place at the Navigation Laboratory at European Space Agency’s technical heart ESTEC, in Noordwijk, the Netherlands on the morning of 12 March, 2013. The position fix had an accuracy between 10 and 15 metres which is quite decent and much along expected lines taking into account the limited infrastructure and other limitations. This milestone is a fundamental step that confirms the Galileo system is working as planned. Fixing the location of any receiver on ground requires a minimum of four satellites – in order to solve for the 4 unknowns i.e.
How to make your own Arduino boardIf your are like me which I am guessing you are, then ever since you got into doing stuff with arduino you have wanted to make your own arduino board. You may be surprised to find out that making the prototyping board is actually very easy, and can have several advantages over using the commercially sold board. For one thing, All the components together cost a little over 15 US dollars as opposed to the $30 that the Uno board sells for. second, you may not actually want a board, but may simply want the atmega chip as the heart of the project, like if you are making a synthesizer or even a robot.
Army Tracking Plan: Drones That Never Forget a FacePerhaps the idea of spy drones already makes your nervous. Maybe you’re uncomfortable with the notion of an unblinking, robotic eye in the sky that can watch your every move. If so, you may want to click away now.Teralab - Spot Welder ElectronicsThis project is a very simple spot welder which will weld thin sheet metal. It will just about weld 0.38mm thick steel. Sheet steel half this thickness welds effortlessly. It can be used for assembling high vacuum components and making thermocouples. WARNING: Despite the simplicity of this design, it can be quite hazardous. Goggles must be worn when using it.Topic: Reloading DiscussionBobbyD, I’m not sure I would want to use cast copper. The idea is to swage copper as opposed to casting lead. To cast cooper you would have to have a furnace capable of around 2000 degrees.
India's first navigation satellite to be launched in JuneHome / Geo NEWS / India’s first navigation satellite to be launched in June India’s Space organisation ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is all set to launch IRNSS-1A; India’s first navigation satellite in June this year. IRNSS-1 is the first satellite of the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) constellation. IRNSS is India’s backup in case of GPS/GLONASS outage.Build Your Own ArduinoSetting up an Arduino on a breadboard has become a process I have grown to love. Within a few minutes you can have a fully working Arduino platform to work with as you will see in this tutorial. There have been several occasions when I was at school and quickly put together one of these for testing some ideas for a project. Plus it is just looks so neat with all the components laid out over the breadboard. Some of my Arduino Projects
