INSIDER: Aerospace

The faster drones fly, the more unstable they become and at high speeds, their aerodynamics can be too complicated to predict. Crashes, therefore, are a common and often spectacular...

INSIDER: Software

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new, interactive spreadsheet that will help the U.S. military extinguish...

INSIDER: Aerospace

As any performer knows, it's important to rehearse, rehearse, and – when you think you're ready – rehearse some more. Similarly, before air taxis, cargo transport, and package-delivery...

INSIDER: Aerospace

Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) to Enable Civilian Low Altitude Goods and Service Delivery by UAS technology was awarded 2020 NASA Government Invention...

Briefs: Motion Control
Using the relationship of system architecture products and model-based systems engineering analysis, a UAV-UGV team can collaboratively conduct the structured, rudimentary tasks necessary to find a person in distress.
INSIDER: Manufacturing & Prototyping

Knowing the air density outside a spacecraft vehicle can have a substantial effect on its angle of descent and ability to hit a specific landing spot. A new onboard algorithm...

INSIDER: Software

Is the U.S. ready for a chemical attack on the homeland? With the very real possibility of a chemical attack in public spaces like stadiums, religious buildings, museums and theaters,...

INSIDER: Aerospace

Argonne National Laboratory and the Air Force Research Laboratory developed a new numerical modeling tool that allows for a better understanding of rotating detonation engines (RDEs)....

INSIDER: Aerospace

Flight schedules that allow for a little carefully designed wiggle room could prevent the frustration of cascading airport delays and cancellations. By focusing on the early phases...

News: Software

To improve a flying vehicle, sometimes you have to turn to a reliable model that has been operating for hundreds of millions of years.

INSIDER: Aerospace

The algorithm DroNet allows drones to fly completely by themselves through the streets of a city and in indoor environments. It produces two outputs for each single input image:...

A Better Understanding of Space — Via Helicopter

An algorithm that helps engineers design better helicopters may help astronomers more precisely envision the formation of planets and galaxies. The new model understands how black holes, planets, and galaxies emerge from the vortex-rich environments of space. Researchers drew inspiration from a...

INSIDER: Software

Researchers at Binghamton University have devised a new computer model that can more accurately predict delays faster than anything currently in use. The multilevel input layer...

INSIDER: Software

NASA and Boeing are designing a longer, thinner, and lighter wing that requires a brace, or truss, to provide it with extra support. The lower-drag wing will reduce both fuel burn...

INSIDER: Aerospace

New research could lead to more efficient takeoffs on airport runways and improve safety. A mathematical tool was developed to calculate the flow of turbulent air produced by a plane’s wing...

Test and Evaluation Uses of Heterogeneous Computing

T est and evaluation of current systems is a time-consuming process that reflects both the intricacies of the object of the test and the range of equipment, personnel, and environments required. Many argue that this process consumes far too much of the time that it takes to put new systems into...
