Researchers Transmit Energy With Laser in “Historic” Power-Beaming Demonstration

It was the second day of a 3-day-long tech demonstration at the David Taylor Model Basin at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Bethesda, MD, where attendees had gathered to stand around in the dark to look at something they mostly couldn”t see. It was a long-range, free-space power beaming system—the first of its kind.

Genetically Engineered Virus Spins Gold Into Beads

The race is on to find manufacturing techniques capable of arranging molecular and nanoscale objects with precision. Engineers at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), have altered a virus to arrange gold atoms into spheroids measuring a few nanometers in diameter. The finding could make production of some electronic components cheaper, easier, and faster. “Nature

NRL Tests Autonomous ‘Soaring With Solar’ Concept

Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Vehicle Research Section and Photovoltaic Section are building on the proven concept of autonomous cooperative soaring of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Their research investigates the benefit of solar photovoltaics (PV) to cooperative autonomous soaring techniques, which enables long endurance flights of unmanned sailplanes that use the power
