Does anyone have any ideas what the future in railroad will be like in the united states? Will we have mag-lev high-speed trains, air-cushioned freight trains and bullet passenger trains? Well it is an interesting subject from a planning perspective and from a Futurist point of view. Part of what makes a civilization run efficiently is the flows of transportation and distribution of course.
Recently in an online think tank a participants stated; "I am proposing to determine the trend an
With all the satellite radio users out there and all the radio waves coming in perhaps we should use this as a background pattern like a radar grid. Thus if there is a disruption passing thru like an airliner, well we have a back up system in case our radar systems go down.
If there is an unidentified flying object, which shows up as a disruption anomaly with this field in an area, which is not a known flight path trajectory for airlines or military then we should start tracking it; bec
What do you do if you are a soldier and all of a sudden a huge cloud or swarm of insects approaches? Picture a bunch of killer bees in a swarm times ten or a hundred? And picture them moving at about 30-40 miles per hour? Scared yet? Well maybe you should be as this will be part of the future battlespace and as we design these weapons so to will our future enemies. As nations change sides from allies to enemies in the never-ending game of Machiavellian Chess, who knows who will have such weap
Is there are way to melt micro-mechanical insect size swarming MAVs [micro air vehicles] if they cam at you in large swarms? What if they are sent by the enemy and each one is capable of putting a deadly toxin in your body or has a small detonation device or explosive like a fire-cracker plus directional charge? A little more than a bee stinger indeed; you will not be able to run or hide as there will be thousands of these little guys are working as a team to take out every human soldier in y
In the future both the US and our Allies, as well as our enemies will be using robotic insect swarms to attack soldiers. This means thousands if not hundreds of thousands of insects making their own cloud of darkness like a killer bee swarm times ten or a small Locust Plague. These swarming robotic insects will attempt to over whelm the troops and kill them or perhaps use a non-lethal dose of injection to put them to sleep. Either way the enemy swarms will be able to cause an entire platoon o
Can we build an unmanned aerial vehicle to fly into a swarm of insects to zap them? Well what if that insect swarm is not actually organic but tiny little robotic micro-mechanical flying devices with explosive charges or even bio-logical lethal or non-lethal weapons? Scared yet? Well you should be because the new high-tech modern battlespace will be nothing like it is today? And if you are a brigade of troops you are like a sitting duck for robotic swarming technologies? How can you fight the
One single stealthy unmanned aerial vehicle may easily sneak into the battlespace alone to do its mission and get out without being detected. But what if you have many and their wake turbulence is detected as the move thru the air. Or what if all their heat signatures, which are small add up to a larger one and it is seen by infrared detection? What if all the different angles bouncing off each other causes an anomaly or disruption in other waves, such a cell tower frequency plumes, satellite
If your enemy knows you are using stealth and their radars will not work on that. They may choose other options such as cell tower frequency circle disruptions or other such techniques. They may also choose to use some sort of heat signature device. But there might be a way to fool such a system and get your enemy to launch on a phantom decoy heat signature using two lasers from two different points.
Consider Chemical Lasers that are airborne and very high-energy. Well if you take an Ar
In the future battlespace you may deploy hundreds of thousands of tiny micro-mechanical devices in swarms and send them to overwhelm your enemy. These little buggers will basically be mechanical insect size flying suicide bombers; picture an African Killer Bee Swarm taking down a Caribou in the wild? They could do it, but luckily Caribous live in colder climates.
But if these little units are robotic, well let's just say your enemy does not have a prayer to get away. Remember the book "
We know from watching migratory birds that when many birds get together they can fly further with each individual bird spending less vital energy for the trip. In the military they learned this too with their aircraft, by drafting like bicycle riders in the Tour de France off the rider in front of them, riding in their slipstream. Now then there is a way to program UAVs or unmanned aerial vehicles in using these techniques to conserve fuel while flying in small swarms? I believe there is inde
