 There are some interesting developments happening in the field of aviation. Flying cars of different configurations, currently in limited production, are expected to save billions of litres of fossil fuels now...

Extreme Temperatures Do not Deter modern Electronics

For ages, machines have been put to use in hazardous environments that intimidate humans, and these machines, more often than not, contain electronic components too. In the past, it was a...

Simulation for Military and Aerospace Electronics Design

The military and aerospace sectors lay down extremely rigid specifications for the designs, going for nothing but the best design practices and only the most precise instruments. Simulation is therefore integral...

Robot Mules, Birds and Snakes Helping on the Warfront

MARCH 2012: Arecent newspaper headline blared: “Humans lose, robots win in Pentagon’s new defence budget.” The story was about US president Obama’s decision to downsize the army by 100,000 soldiers in...

Maintaining Reliability Under Extreme Conditions in Space
