    Sometimes definitions are not as crystal clear as they should be, and in the case of free flight we had a lot of different interpretations. Considering the evolution of aviation from the first experiments, to the pioneers, and then to a well developed and regulated activity, we have reached a point in which the word "free" has a very modest relation with the concept of "freedom to do something".

    There will come the day that UAVs can fly into the airspace of manned aircraft in the near future because of the increasing number of operational UAVs, together with technologies development. Since pilots of UAVs are on the ground, the equipment for sensing and avoiding obstacles in front is indispensable. In this paper, the TCAS II, a collision avoidance device for manned aircraft, is implemented... View full abstract»

    Despite its intrinsic advantages as a sensor material for the detection of gamma and X radiation, CdTe has proven a difficult material to produce consistently and in sufficient quantities. We report further developments of a vapour phase technique, which has provided significant advantages over current melt growth technologies. Crystals of up to 50 mm in diameter have been produced with increased ... View full abstract»

    Pico-satellites offer excellent potential to introduce students to hands-on system design. Master and PhD students thus realized the satellite University Wuerzburg's Experimental satellite (UWE-1) with a mass below 1 kg, which is since 2005 in orbit. This article addresses technical details of subsystems, system design, and integration aspects. From the educational side, the integration into the u... View full abstract»

    This describes the goals of the Student Satellite Program at Aalborg University (AAU), and the means for implementing it, namely a concept called problem based learning, which is the cornerstone in education at AAU. AAU has, within the last decade, chosen to focus strongly on education in space technology, not because the country lacks aerospace engineers, but because space projects require the st...

    A problem associated with space education in undergraduate and graduate curricula is the very nature of space engineering. The history of space tells a story of thousands of engineers from a broad spectrum of engineering disciplines along with physicists, chemists, and so on involved from the beginning of space exploration. It is extremely difficult to introduce design into the undergraduate curri... View full abstract»

    Most engineering programs have a capstone design course, as per the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) requirements, the recognized US accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. This paper proposes that such a course be placed in a larger and coupled design framework, that is, that all student design groups choos... View full abstract»
