Will Technology Save Us From Our Addiction to Foreign Oil?

The President of the United States of America has stated and it cannot be denied; America is addicted to foreign oil. The question is; can United States technology save us from our addiction to foreign oil? Many believe it can and all I personally believe it will.

You see, it has been noted that our colleges and universities, as well as many private research and development companies in the United States are all the verge of breakthroughs in such technologies, which will help us break

Possible Sensors for Tunneling Robots

No one has built the small and reliable tunneling robot that works good however, it makes sense that research and development dollars are spent these I need such a system. In order to make sure the tunneling robot works properly it will need to be loaded with the number of sensors and the choices will determine how well it works.

Recently this subject came up in an online think tank when a member asked the following questions; "Other applications, if provided enough of a connectivity, w

Tunneling Robotic Design and Phase I Concept Considerations

The U.S. military needs tunneling robots, NASA needs tunneling robots, public works departments need tunneling robots, FEMA needs tunneling robots and so does law enforcement, FBI, Border Patrol, DEA, DHS and The ATF. But, how come no one has ever made a good, reliable, self-contained and state-of-the-art tunneling robot?

It seems with all the robotics competitions going on that someone would have designed and built a good tunneling robot by now. This subject recently came up in an onli

Tunneling Robot Control and Computer Brain Options

Tunneling robots have many applications, as they would be used to total underneath something to fix the problem, rescue a survivor, aid in a hostage situation or attacked an enemy such as an international terrorist, insurgents or enemy combatants hiding in a house or other locations.

A tunneling device or bot might be asked to go through earthquake debris and therefore it might be hard to keep a signal to wirelessly control the robot or in a battlefield situation of urban warfare it mig

Power Options for Tunneling Robots

Tunneling robots have many applications for instance laying underground cable, finding damaged pipelines, rescuing people from natural disasters, saving people from hostage situations or military applications in hunting down international terrorists at a time and place of our choosing. It is for this reason that the subject of tunneling robots came up recently in an online think tank. Which power option would you use so that the tunneling robot was powerful enough to complete its operations o

Tunneling Robots; Applications and Logistics

Is it possible to use tunneling robots to attack the enemy and protect our troops while in combat in urban settings? That is to say to tunnel under an insurgent, an enemy or an international terrorist's location and then attack. Sure one would suppose that anything is indeed possible right? But can we design such a unit? It would have more than just military applications for instance; it would be great for looking for survivors of a flood, a major earthquake or a huge severe weather event lik

Tunneling Robots for Combat; Design Concepts

When fighting in urban situations often the enemy can hiding behind walls or behind landscape making it very difficult to get him and giving the advantage to the enemy if you try to advance on their position. Therefore it makes sense to use unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs to fly over the enemy and perhaps draw a hand grenade on them; that makes sense right? But what if the enemy is inside of a house and using civilians as a shield, which is a common occurrence for insurgents and internation

Biorefinery Initiative and Growing Our Fuel

Well, Brazil has been doing it for years; growing their own fuel. But can the United States of America grow enough ethanol to power are up all of our automobiles? That is no easy task considering the enormity of our demand; nevertheless that is the plan. Currently unit 5 to 8 percent of their total gasoline usage that would serve our nation very well and possibly prevent the horrific price spikes which so often hurt American families and small businesses. What is The Biorefinery Initiative?

Future Alternative to Powering Homes and Businesses

United States of America is developing a strategic plan and looking at future alternatives to powering homes and businesses. With natural gas spikes and the ever-increasing demand we need to change the way we power our homes and businesses.

In California each summer they have power outages due to the incredible demand in the inability to deliver that much power through the power lines. But this is not the only place in America we are problems on our grid. This is a serious issue, whi

Combat Tunneling Robot Considerations

The United States military needs combat tunneling robots for urban warfare settings such as Iraq. International terrorists, Iranian Insurgents and Enemy Combatants will often hide in homes or buildings. And the United States military cannot just go around blowing up buildings in homes because there might be innocent civilians inside.

One trick of international terrorists used to hide within civilian populations and use them as human shields. Also there are issues when special operati
