Thales UK has announced the launch of COASTMASTER, a compact, lightweight radar system (30kg) designed to be fitted in standard or electro-optic / infrared unmanned air vehicle (UAV) payload bays. This new radar combines high-performance ground surveillance with advanced maritime capabilities.
Some new technologies appear from nowhere. Others are heralded by such long fanfares that it seems they will never arrive. Electronic paper is surely in the second category. The idea of a display screen that has the clarity and flexibility of paper has been around for at least a decade. It has found a few niche, black-and-white applications in mobile phones and ¡§electronic books¡¨. As a mass-market, full-colour product, however, it has conspicuously failed to show up.
Engineers at Thales UK¡¦s Optronics business in Glasgow are installing Thales¡¦s CM10 optronic masts on the Royal Navy¡¦s new submarine, HMS Astute.
As an infant, Raea Gragg was withdrawn and could not make eye contact. By preschool she needed to smell and squeeze every object she saw.
The Army is set to deliver a new combat optic to its Soldiers that could take "owning the night" to a whole new level.
An international team of astronomers using ESO's Very Large Telescope has discovered that the south pole of Neptune is much hotter than the rest of the planet. This is consistent with the fact that it is late southern summer and this region has been in sunlight for about 40 years.
The HairMax Laser Comb is the most recent product to have been approved by the FDA following clinical trials that proved the device prevents hair loss and re-grows the hair of those who experience genetic hair loss. The only two other treatments which have also been FDA approved are Minoxidil and Propecia - these are the two most effective known treatments to combat the problem of hair loss and ensure most people's hair loss will be halted and hair will be re-grown!
Amana Contracting and Steel Buildings, one of the leading names in fast track and turnkey construction in the Middle East, has adopted the one-of-its-kind 'Laser Screed' technology for concrete floor slabs in its time-sensitive projects, thereby setting new standards in the regional construction industry.
Cincinnati Incorporated adds two models to its American-made family of linear-motor-drive laser cutting centers. The CL-840 and CL-825 allow users to tailor machine performance to specific cutting requirements for optimal processing efficiency. Both models feature proven, hard-working Fanuc fast-axial flow resonators - 4000 watt continuous power for the CL-840 and 2500 watts for the CL-825. Each machine is available in 5 x 10 and 6 x 12 ft. (2M x 4M) cutting table sizes and comes standard with full guarding for floor space savings over open lasers with safety zone floor mats. Dual-pallet quick-change design allows one pallet to be unloaded/ reloaded while the second is being processed. Pallet change takes just seconds, so cutting is virtually continuous.
A team of U.S., Australian, and German researchers have identified the gene needed for binocular vision in mice.
With the on going demand of highly efficient light source, extremely long life hours of source are required. Our SPNovaLED product range has proven track record to produce this ideal light source in various lighting applications such as architecture and general lighting.
Cree, Inc. today announced that Cree and Nichia Corporation have entered into an agreement that expands their cross license arrangements announced in 2002 and 2005 to include additional patents relating to white LED technology and certain Cree patents relating to nitride lasers. The agreement also resolves infringement claims Nichia had asserted against LED products sold by COTCO International Limited, a subsidiary of COTCO Luminant Device Limited, prior to Cree's acquisition of COTCO Luminant Device Limited and its subsidiaries in March 2007.
Even if the next LCD you buy has pretty much the same characteristics as the last LCD you bought, a change is likely to have occurred behind the scenes. In display sizes below about 15 inches, the tried-and-true cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) lighting system for the LCD is rapidly being replaced by light-emitting diodes.
National Semiconductor Corporation will showcase its latest power management technology at the Portable Design Conference and Exhibition in Santa Clara, California, from October 3-4. The Portable Design Conference is the only industry gathering of design engineers specifically engaged in the development and engineering of portable devices.
The new DSTS sensor from OZ Optics is now available from AMS Technologies throughout Europe.
