One problem that has been plaguing the development of hydrogen-fueled vehicles is that hydrogen gas needs to be stored and transported in expensive pressurized tanks. Liquid energy carriers such as hydrogen dissolved in a salt solution are viewed as possible alternatives, but they’re also fraught with problems including the accumulation of byproducts. The simplest hydrogen carrier is water. But splitting hydrogen from […]

View gallery (4 images) At first glance, hydrogen fuel cells sound like a great power source for fixed-wing drones making long flights – they have much longer run times than batteries, and they […]


San Diego, Calif., Oct. 3 — A group of engineering students at the University of California, San Diego, will boldly go where no university student group has gone before by testing a 3D-printed rocket engine made out of metal at 10 a.m. on Sunday Oct. 5 at the Friends of Amateur Rocketry testing site in the Mojave […]


Opening new manufacturing opportunities for Australia in aerospace, medicine and light industry Monash University researchers along with collaborators from CSIRO and Deakin University have printed a jet engine. In fact Monash and their spin-out company Amaero, have printed two engines. One is on display this week at the International Air Show in Avalon, while the […] What is RTL-SDR? RTL-SDR is a very cheap software defined radio that uses a DVB-T TV tuner dongle based on the RTL2832U chipset. With the combined efforts of Antti Palosaari, Eric Fry and Osmocom it was found that the signal I/Q data could be accessed directly, which allowed the DVB-T TV tuner to be converted into a […]

Yushan Yan leads a UD research team studying the important question of what it will take to create an affordable emissions-free vehicle. The question, an issue of engineering and […]


Avaialble on the Kickstarter site at: Drones seem to be everywhere. The problem is that the vast majority of them are multi-rotors and they excel at one thing: hovering. Hovering solves one side of the problem, but when shooting a fast subject you need speed. Without compromising precision hovering capabilities we created something fast. […]
