Coming Soon - The Stealth E-Bike: Challenges in Developing the First Fully Integrated Drive System for E-Bikes

Developing an E-Bike that looks and drives like a conventional bike raises significant engineering challenges. Yet this is what the team at FAZUA has achieved with their proof-of-concept bike, using electrical assistance from their evation drive system. The drive system, containing all engine components like engine, electronics and battery, is placed in the downtube of a bike and can be removed by just one click at any time. Within seconds, an e-bike is converted into a lightweight bike as a bezel is put at its place. The next generation prototype, which will attain a pre-series status, is currently in development with the aid of CAD construction and simulation software.

Coming Soon - SansEC: Electrical Sensors with No Electrical Connections

SansEC is a NASA-developed wireless sensor technology that is damage tolerant and requires no electrical connections. Unlike other sensors, a SansEC sensor can be designed for measurements unrelated to each other - like temperature and fluid level - and easily switch from one to another or do both simultaneously.

3D Printing in Space: The Next Frontier

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has a long term strategy for In-space Manufacturing which includes fabricating components and equipment on-demand for human missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. To support this strategy, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) and Made in Space, Inc. have developed the 3D Printing In Zero-G Technology Demonstration for the International Space Station (ISS). The 3D Printing In Zero-G experiment (‘3D Print’) will be the first machine ever to perform 3D printing in space.

The Benefits of Model-Based Engineering - An Aerospace Perspective

The defense industry is focused on improving affordability. In aerospace, rising fuel costs and increasing competition for market share are driving the demand for on-board systems that deliver improved performance while using less energy. The industry is therefore looking at implementing improved product development processes. Among these is the more widespread use of a model based engineering approach.

3D Printing for Machine Design

Metals and plastics have long been used for machine parts. Their durability, strength, and reliability in machines that operate continuously for millions of cycles make them the standard in automated machinery. However, for these same reasons, the use of 3D printed parts has been questioned and not widely adopted by manufacturers. This view should be reconsidered as 3D printed components offer a lower cost means to produce prototype components and end use components for machinery.
