Battery Energy Storage Systems provide resilient power from commercial Grids to military installations and bases

One of the obstacles to total green energy reliance is that many sources of carbon-neutral energy, such as solar and wind power, are unpredictable and intermittent. A possible solution is to build energy storage facilities that can charge up while excess energy is being generated, then discharge when demand overtakes …

Biomimetic Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (BUUV) use Biomimetics for design of innovative propulsion systems

Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), also known as underwater drones, are submersible vehicles that can navigate their way through various water systems with or without human intervention. Typically, UUVs fall into two categories, remotely operated underwater vehicles, or autonomous underwater vehicles.   Traditional underwater propulsion systems, such as screw-type axial propellors, …
