The four-year Clean High-Efficiency Diesel Engine (CHEDE) program is using a variety of new technologies and research findings to progress to a super-efficient, low-emitting heavy-duty diesel engine system with 55% brake thermal efficiency.
In a recent joint paper by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and the National Graphene Institute (NGI) at the University of Manchester, researchers outlined the disruptive impact potential of graphene applications in aerospace. This comes at a time of marked graphene innovation from research teams in Japan and Singapore.
In reviewing Obama-era vehicle-emissions standards dictated aggressive fuel-economy standards for the years 2022-2025, the U.S. EPA said that in light of current market conditions and consumer preferences, the regulations should be revised.
The challenges of climate change and energy security require a continuous effort toward reduction of global environmental pollution and fossil oil consumption. To meet greenhouse gas (GHG) emission targets and to decrease oil dependency, overall energy consumption of vehicles must be substantially reduced.
LiquidPiston Inc. has developed a new engine that can run on multiple fuels, including diesel, jet fuel, and gasoline. This platform uses an optimized thermodynamic cycle and a new rotary engine architecture and could increases flight endurance over conventional UAV engines by greater than 50%.
skyguide joins forces with AirMap to develop and deploy Europe’s premier national drone traffic management system. The endeavor will be the first national deployment of Europe’s vision for the digital infrastructure to support safe and secure access to European skies for millions of UAVs, in an effort called U-space.
