XTI Aircraft announced the partnership March 6, adding that the joining of Bye and his design team to the effort will expedite development and allow the first prototype to be built at full scale, rather than the 65 percent scale previously planned. The TriFan 600 also will now have a hybrid-electric propulsion system.
XTI is recruiting investors through conventional venture capital channels as well as online crowdfunding. They are developing the TriFan 600 to be able to take off and land vertically, then transition to more airplane-like flight as the ducted fans rotate, giving it an expected range of 1,200 miles. XTI expects the TriFan 600 to be able to climb to 35,000 feet in ten minutes. Bye’s own Sun Flyer, a two-seat, solar-electric trainer, aims to be the first American-made, practical, and all-electric trainer to reach the market. A maiden flight has not been announced, but ground testing began in 2016. XTI CEO Robert LaBelle stated in a press release, “We’re replacing the transmission, gears, two large heavier engines and other components with electric motors, batteries, generators, and a single smaller turboshaft engine.”
George Bye, founder, chairman, and CEO of Bye Aerospace, explained in the XTI news release. “Advanced electric power for aircraft makes the hybrid-electric configuration compelling for the TriFan. We can now bring together into one extraordinary airplane, battery power, electric motors, and a light efficient engine in a vertical takeoff and landing platform. The TriFan will achieve unprecedented performance and operating economy while being safer, lighter, quieter and cleaner. We’re very excited to team with XTI on this game-changing VTOL project.”

We have exciting news this week as Bell Geospace has invested in a new aircraft. This aircraft is the Basler BT-67 produced by Basler Turbo Conversions. This utility aircraft provides a long-range fuel tank that allows for the aircraft range to reach 2140 nautical miles. Bell Geospace has purchased this new utility aircraft in order to expand its worldwide and technical capacity. Bell states that “The Basler BT-67 has proven to be an efficient and reliable platform for conducting our FTG surveys, and has yielded some of our most successful surveys to date. This is already a very promising purchase and an intelligent investment from Bell Geospace that will hopefully launch more of their ideas and innovative efforts in the aerospace world.
One of the Bell aircraft parts that makes this investment so valuable is the FTG instrument, also known as the Tensor Gravity Gradiometer. On top of this, the aircraft has magnetic sensors. With these improvements on the Basler BT-67, they will be able to “acquire FTG data in a range of often challenging conditions due to the stability and endurance of this fixed wing platform.” Whether this plane is overland or offshore, this function will still persist. This will allow for a much faster return time for Bell Geospace to gather data and deliver the data to their customers. The time will be reduced and will allow for a much more effective system for Bell.

The B-L072Z-LRWAN1 STM32 LoRa Discovery kit builds on the all-in-one open module from Murata that consolidates a STM32L072CZ microcontroller and Semtech SX1276 transceivers. The module lineaments a LoRa modem that implements ultra-long-range spread-spectrum communication and high interference immunity while reducing current expenditure. Since the module is open, developers have access to the STM32L072 MCU and its unit such as ADC, 16-bit timer, LP-UART, 12C, SPI AND USB 2.0 FS.
The B-L072Z-LRWAN1 kit combine an on-board debugger, a 64-pin STM32 Nucleo morpho connector, an Arduino-compatible connector, and a battery socket. It also comes with contact to a completely free improved ecosystem that adds the MDK-ARM Integrated Development Environment (IDE), STM32CubeMX configurator and software tools, and ST’s LoRaWAN protocol stack.The boards are based on the smallest and lowest-power LoRaWAN modules that exist on the market today, with a footprint not bigger than 13- x 12-mm and power desolating in the range of 1.2 µA in standby mode. The I-NUCLEO-LRWAN1 is an extention board for STM32 Nucleo or Arduino boards that can be simply plugged in to immediately starts work developing a full LoRa-based and/or FSK/OOK (Frequency-Shift Keying/On-Off Keying) function.
The board lineaments a LoRaWAN module from USI in sync with an STM32L052T8 MCU and Semtech SX1272 transceivers. The USI module comes pre-loaded with an AT command stack that helps streamline advancement and saves programming. The board is also assembled with ST’s LIS2DS12 3-axis accelerometer, LPS22HB MEMS pressure sensor, and HTS221 humidity-and-temperature sensor. Both boards are LoRaWAN-certified and fully manageable with wireless regulations, for example in the US, EU, Russia, India, and other countries using the 860-930 MHz recurrence bands. With two new ready to use prototype boards, STMicroelectrics objective is to cut the cost of evaluating LoRaWAN and other Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies in addition to 6LoWPAN.

Vision research has released a 4k high speed camera with a 35 millimeter, 9.4-megapixel sensor capable of recording at 1,000 frames per second. The camera will be useful in aerospace research especially when recording extremely fast moving objects like propellers and chopper blades. 4k resolution and high speed shutter ability has been long sought after but technology has been the limiting factor. This camera takes no loss in speed or sensitivity, instead it boots both in an epic creation by Vision Research. Add the capability of operating in extreme temperatures and you have the perfect tool for recording high energy equipment failure.
High speed video is a very entertaining and insightful way to learn how materials behave. Even watching a water balloon hit the ground at high speed is exhilarating and educational. The impact ripples and shearing forces on the thin layer of rubber are something the human eye would never visualize because of the speed in which they happen. Now apply the same technology to aerospace parts and you have a research tool that can bring the next generation of enhanced components. With slow motion and 4k video it is possible to determine exactly where a turbine fails in a windstorm. The Flex4k-GS camera has a whopping 128GB or RAM and will store footage in a 2-terabyte disk.
Even with two terabytes the camera will only store a few hours’ worth of footage. With time dilation, this camera will not be useful in recording flights or non-critical footage. It will most likely be used for critical experiments that last less than a minute. The research and information provided however will be massive. Only with high speed footage can you find that a single bolt shearing was the cause of your half million dollar engine exploding. ASAP Distribution has a dedicated and expansive array of electronics parts—serving customers as a one-stop shop and primary destination for product sourcing. ASAP will ensure that your needs are addressed in the most expeditious and transparent manner, all the while offering cost-effective component solutions.

CSIRO is joining with start-up company Ecocentric on a system that recognizes the electrical ‘fingerprint’ of individual appliances to gain energy adaptability in buildings. CSIRO and Ecocentric will further develop the ‘Numen’ energy saving system under a licensing and research agreement. The Numen brings together a building’s total energy signal, identifies the appliances present, and then divides out appliance-specific consumption data on how much energy the appliance is using.
Advanced joining using CSIRO algorithms, Numen improves the processes involved in using and maintaining energy in homes, commercial buildings and industrial facilities. Where traditional smart meter systems record low-resolution total energy use, generally for the purpose of billing, CSIRO-developed ‘cognitive metering’ technology which identifies individual appliances using an exclusive signature of high-frequency electrical data. Advanced machine learning algorithms are then operating to measure appliance power utilization without them needing to be metered individually. Numen uses cloud-based technology to monitor energy consumption in real time, allowing remarkable insights into the operation of critical machinery.
The system will allow automatic identification of metered electrical devices, facilitate better understanding and prediction of energy use patterns, and predict faults for pre-emptive maintenance. This data will feature opportunities for more efficient energy saving electronical parts use, appear in cost savings and a reduced carbon footprint.
With ASAP Semiconductor being the leading distributer. “The energy domain is experiencing an increased focus in the megatrend ‘digital immersion’, affecting both domestic and commercial energy consumers. Our research is helping drive the next wave of productivity and efficiency in energy consumption.” Explains CSIRO Energy Director Karl Rodrigues. Under the arrangement, Ecocentric will attain a license from CSIRO to the cognitive metering technology and work with CSIRO for a period of six years to further clarify the system.? A key focal point of CSIRO’s Energy saving research is the advancement of intelligent systems, including decision support and management tools that cut down energy consumption of Australia’s buildings through improved understanding of energy flows.
