India's Prithvi Air Defence (PAD) / Pradyumna Ballistic Missile Interceptor The Prithvi Air Defence (PAD) is an anti-ballistic missile developed to intercept incoming ballistic missiles outside of the atmosphere (exo-atmospheric). Based on the Prithvi missile, PAD is a two stage missile with a maximum interception altitude of 80 km (50 mi). The first stage is a liquid fuelled motor while the second stage is solid fuelled. It has maneuver thrusters which can generate a lateral acceleration of more than 5 gs at 50 km (31 mi) altitude. Guidance is provided by an intertial navigation system with mid-course updates from LRTR and active radar homing in the terminal phase. PAD has capability to engage the 300 to 2000 km (190 to 1200 mi) class of ballistic missiles at a speed of Mach 5. LRTR is the target acquisition and fire control radar for the PAD missile. It is an active phased array radar having capability to track 200 targets at a range of 600 km (370 mi). The PAD missile has also been called Pradyumna. Further development led to the improvement of the interception range to the 80 to 50 km (50 to 31 mi) range. The improved missile will utilize a gimbaled directional warhead, a technology that until now has only been used by the US and Russia. This technology allows for a smaller warhead to destroy the target missile. The PADE (Prithvi Air Defence Exercise) was conducted on November 2006 in which a PAD missile successfully intercepted a modified Prithvi-II Missile at an altitude of 50 km (31 mi). The Prithvi-II ballistic missile was modified ...

Turtlehead Peak (up) Red Rock Canyon Las Vegas, Part 1, TP1win A difficult "video-hike" up to Red Rock Canyon's Turtlehead Peak: I tried, but after mile 2.1 near hurricane force winds made it all but impossible to continue on up to the peak. Still, it was an invaluable experience and an important test I needed to do and see how my camera set-up performs in (extreme) high winds. The result was very satisfactory and not much additional shake was detected. It was however difficult at times to hold and aim the camera and keep my own balance. Once and for all, it has assured me that it is very doubtful that ANY floating or "gimbaled" steadying camera equipment could work here. Such would be too heavy, too awkward (counterweights) and mostly uncontrollable in high winds. Part 2 takes you back down again. Use TP1win in SEARCH to find the clip again later.

A Poor Man's Gimbaled Camera Steadying Mount Ingredients: A gimbaled cup holder from Cabelas, a long bolt with threads matching camera mount threads, a few large, heavy washers and a Tachyon XC helmet cam (or any camcorder or video cam that's small enough to fit.) The bolt fits through the washers, up through the bottom of the cup holder and screwed into the bottom of the camera. A small piece of foam pipe insulation is used as spacer under camera. The washers act as a counter weight, keeping the camera upright. The cup holder is mounted onto the rail of the boat and, voila! The poor man's gimbal camera mount!
Skylark I-LE UAV by Elbit Systems The mini UAV is quickly assembled before the mission and is launched by hand. Recovery is performed by a deep stall maneuver, which lands the vehicle safely on a small inflatable cushion, at a pre-designated point. The cushion is designed to protect the payload on landing. The entire mission is flown autonomously, feeding real-time continuous video and telemetry data to the portable ruggedized ground station. Its wingsSkylark 1 LE Mini Unmanned Aerial vehicle (M-UAV) Photo: Elbit Systems and tail surfaces are constructed of a lightweight composites, the fuselage tubular boom is also made of composites. The avionics and payload systems are contained in a pod carried below the boom. The gimbaled payload utilizes a daylight CCD or an optional FLIR for night operation, which can be rotated by four gimbals. In February 2004 Elbit won an IDF Ground Forces Command contract to supply the Skylark for evaluation and testing as an organic UAV system, to be operated by infantry units. Skylark has since entered operational service with selected IDF units, used for operational testing and doctrine development and evaluation. During the Second Lebanon war in July-August 2006, Skylark mini-UAVs were operated by IDF units performing close-in reconnaissance missions in support of the ground forces, providing valuable real-time intelligence, due to their low acoustic and visual signatures, Skylarks were able to operate at very low altitude practically undetectable.

Handheld, multi-axis camera stabilization device utilizing MEMS gyro sensors (stabilizer) Handheld, multi-axis camera stabilization device utilizing MEMS gyro sensors (stabilizer) (US Patent 7642741, additional patent pending) In the field of motion picture photography, camera stabilization devices are used to isolate the camera from the natural body movements of the operator, while providing fluid maneuverability across a set. The purpose of this project is to design, build and optimize a low cost, compact gyro-based servo stabilization device for a professional handheld motion picture camera. This device uses MEMS based rate gyro sensors mounted to a gimbaled camera rig to measure the angular rate of the camera's rotation. The gyro signals are amplified to drive DC servo motors coupled to the camera's rotational axes. As a gyro measures the cameras rotation about an axis, the corresponding servo motor applies an opposing torque on the platform to oppose camera rotation. The camera is mounted to a yaw and pitch gimbaled structure, adjustable so that the rotational axes can run through the cameras center of mass, thus minimizing the torque and power required to stabilize the camera. Each gyro rate signal is amplified by a proportional gain amplifier. An integrator circuit acting on each rate signal, helps ensure that the rig does not drift due to extraneous forces. A pair of high current, high power operational amplifiers drive each servo motor from the sum of the proportional and integrated rate signals. Dynamic tests confirm that the gyro stabilization ...

Palisades Top Industry Practice Award Entergy Nuclear employees at Palisades Power Plant took home the highest honor at the Nuclear Energy Assembly in the annual Top Industry Practice Awards. Entergy's Palisades team was the maintenance category winner and also earned the top honor, the B. Ralph Sylvia Best of the Best Award, over 14 other category winners at the meeting held in San Francisco by the Nuclear Energy Institute. The coveted Top Industry Practice awards rank among the nuclear industry's most prestigious recognitions. The employees won for developing a new instrument called a gimbaled head for inspections of the reactor vessel. Working with the vendor AREVA, this team innovation is one that will also be used across the industry since it vastly improves data collection for this important maintenance inspection. "We are very proud of our Palisades employees and their persistent spirit in building this device over a number of years until it resulted in a breakthrough advance for Entergy that ultimately now benefits the entire industry," said Entergy Nuclear president and CEO, John Herron. Herron also serves as the Chief Nuclear Officer for the Entergy Nuclear fleet, the second largest nuclear fleet in the US operating or providing management services to facilities in Arkansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New York and Vermont. What is a gimbaled head? The gimbaled head performs inspections on the inside of the reactor head around the mechanisms that lift and lower control ...
