Hermeus receives $60 million in U.S. Air Force partnership

Hermeus receives $60 million in U.S. Air Force partnership

August , 2021

Hermeus, the aerospace company developing Mach 5 aircraft, announced today the signing of a $60 million U.S. Air Force partnership for flight testing its first aircraft, Quarterhorse.

Quarterhorse will validate the company’s proprietary turbine-based combined cycle (TBCC) engine, based around the GE J85 turbojet engine, and is the first in a line of autonomous high-speed aircraft. By the end of the flight test campaign, Quarterhorse will be the fastest reusable aircraft in the world and the first of its kind to fly a TBCC engine.

Hermeus’ Quarterhorse aircraft

The award was made under the AFWERX Strategic Funding Increase (STRATFI) program led by the Presidential and Executive Airlift Directorate (PE) as a follow-on to a Phase II SBIR contract. The collaboration also includes support from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).

“Small business partnership is recognized by the U.S. Air Force as an important component to driving innovation. Reducing risk in high speed transport technologies, as we are doing with this contract, provides near-term and long-term benefits to both the U.S. Air Force and the defense industrial base.” said Lt. Col. Joshua Burger, the Vector Initiative program manager who is spearheading the effort. “We are very excited to see Hermeus translate their demonstrated successes in engine prototyping into flight systems.”

Some may argue that it is impossible to flight test a TBCC engine across the full flight envelope for less than $100 million.  However, Hermeus is taking a different approach than traditional high-speed flight test programs. Hermeus will be leveraging autonomous and reusable systems, ruthlessly focused requirements, and a hardware-rich program.  These three strategies allow the team to push the envelope, sometimes strategically to the point of failure in flight test, which accelerates learning while simultaneously improving the safety of flight test crew and the public.  Pushing more risk to flight allows Hermeus to move through the engineering lifecycle quickly, reducing programmatic costs.  When exploring beyond the speeds that airbreathing aircraft have flown before, learning must come through testing in the real world.

TBCC Engine Overview in Quarterhorse

The technology set Hermeus has chosen positions the company firmly in the dual-use space for hypersonic technology, i.e. technologies normally used for civilian purposes but which may have military applications. “While this partnership with the U.S. Air Force underscores U.S. Department of Defense interest in hypersonic aircraft, when paired with Hermeus’ partnership with NASA announced in February 2021, it is clear that there are both commercial and defense applications for what we’re building,” said Hermeus CEO and co-founder, AJ Piplica.

ABOUT HERMEUS

Hermeus is a venture-backed startup with the long-term vision of transforming the global human transportation network with Mach 5 aircraft. At Mach 5, travel is not just supersonic, it’s hypersonic. At these speeds – over 3,000 miles per hour – flight times from New York to London will be 90 minutes rather than seven hours. Mach 5 aircraft have the potential to create an additional four trillion dollars of global economic growth per year, unlocking significant resources that can be utilized to solve the world’s great problems.

E1 Series and PIF announce partnership to create world’s first electric powerboat championship

Electric Sea Racing Limited (‘E1 Series’) and Public Investment Fund (PIF) have entered into a partnership that will see PIF support in creating the world’s first electric powerboat racing championship.

The news was revealed today during a virtual launch event, where E1 Series organisers also unveiled the new design of the electric RaceBird powerboat ahead of World Oceans Day on June 8.

The partnership represents a significant step forward in the long-term development of the championship, providing a strong foundation on which to build from and enabling the series to further accelerate preparations for the inaugural season, scheduled to take place in early 2023 – with Saudi Arabia to be one of the considered race locations.

As a major contributor to the global economy and partner of choice for innovative companies and investors, PIF’s investment in E1 is in line with its 2021-2025 strategy announced earlier this year, which focuses on 13 key strategic sectors, including sports and entertainment, and renewable energy. This includes major investments in renewable energy companies, such as ACWA Power and the Sudair Solar Energy project, as well as in the development of electric vehicles through its investment in Lucid Motors.

Series creators Alejandro Agag, Chairman of E1, and Rodi Basso, CEO of E1, were both joined live in the studio by the President of the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) Raffaele Chiulli, as well as SeaBird Technologies Founder Sophi Horne, and Founder & CEO of Victory Marine Brunello Acampora to present the RaceBird powerboat.

The vessel is a completely new design and was co-created by Horne and Acampora following an extensive validation process. The RaceBird is inspired by nature and birds flying low over the water and features an outboard motor, enclosed safety canopy and hydrofoil technology.

Using innovative hydrofoil technology, the electric RaceBird powerboats will rise high above the water’s surface, allowing for minimum drag and maximum energy efficiency. Being lifted above the waves will not only improve performance, but it will also promote close and competitive racing with a reduced wake when following an opponent.

The RaceBird is specially designed for foil-to-foil racing and is capable of reaching speeds up to 50 knots (93 km/h or 58 mph), with pilots showcasing their skills using tight and technical circuits located close to shore in the heart of urban areas.

With the design now validated, the RaceBird has entered into the production phase with the expert engineers at Victory Marine concentrating their efforts and resource over the coming months on manufacturing a full fleet of race-ready electric powerboats.

Alejandro Agag, Co-Founder & Chairman of E1, said: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome on board PIF as a new partner in this exciting venture. To get the backing of PIF at this early stage of development emphasises the importance of our mission to electrify marine mobility. With the new design of the RaceBird boat you see today, we hope to accelerate change in the marine industry and provide sustainable solutions for future leisure craft. The new powerboat that Sophi and Brunello designed looks like a spaceship. I’ve compared electric racing cars to podracers from Star Wars in the past, but the RaceBird looks even more futuristic. Working together with PIF, I look forward to ushering in a new era of electric powerboat racing.”

Rodi Basso, Co-Founder & CEO of E1, said: “We’re thrilled to be working together with PIF to jointly shape the future direction of powerboating. Forming a strong partnership with a global investment powerhouse such as PIF provides a solid foundation on which to build a new sport. The RaceBird presents a unique challenge and one that the teams at SeaBird Technologies and Victory Marine have delivered on. They’ve managed to develop an innovative powerboat with an eye-catching design and factored in practical solutions ready to go racing. Shortly we’ll also be announcing our powertrain and electronics partners; we’re on schedule to hit the water soon.”

Commenting on the announcement, HE Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Governor of the Public Investment Fund, said: “This exciting investment in a new premier sport format aligns with our strategy to enable innovation globally and unlock new industries, as well as build strategic partnerships with real value add to Saudi Arabia. We believe our support for future sports will also contribute to the growth of various sectors globally.

“Our partnership with E1 will help drive the development of innovative sustainable technology, which in turn positions Saudi as an enabler in the industries of the future and the creation of new opportunities.”

Sophi Horne, Founder of SeaBird Technologies, said: “It’s amazing to finally be able to share the new RaceBird design with the world. Obviously, I’ve seen it on a screen quite a lot in the past few months! But it’s great to show the new look of the boat that the pilots will race with. The bodywork and shape of the vessel is inspired by nature and birds flying above the water’s surface. What has been interesting is trying to find a balance between how you envisage the design and combining that with optimising both performance and efficiency. The solution we settled on fortunately doesn’t compromise on either the looks or performance capabilities.”

Brunello Acampora, Founder & CEO of Victory Marine, said: “Today’s announcement is the result of many months of hard work, creating a completely new design and simulating it in a competitive racing environment. I’ve really enjoyed working together with Sophi to produce the vessel that will compete in the world’s first electric powerboat championship. Now that the design has been fully validated, we’ll begin engineering and manufacturing the boats in preparation for prototype testing and ready for the teams to receive their first delivery. For us at Victory Marine, the E1 Series is the greatest test bench for cutting-edge solutions that will change the future of navigation forever.”

Dr. Raffaele Chiulli, President of the UIM, said: “At the International Powerboat Federation, we’re delighted to be part of this groundbreaking development in the powerboating sport. The futuristic RaceBird design combined with the use of hydrofoil technology in the E1 Series reflects the pioneering spirit of this initiative and are an inspiring answer to today’s challenges facing marine mobility. It’s an exciting moment for our sport and I cannot wait to see the RaceBird on the water.”

Released ahead of World Oceans Day, the RaceBird acts as a symbol of the future ambitions of the E1 Series, to revolutionise marine mobility and reduce the pressures being placed on fragile underwater ecosystems across the world.

The next major milestone in the RaceBird development is in September when the covers come off the first full-scale model at the Monaco Yacht Show, before the start of prototype testing which is set to get underway later this year.

E1 were advised by Shoosmiths law firm and financial advisers PJT Partners.

SOMADOME – The world’s first technology-enabled meditation pod.

WELCOME TO SOMADOME

The world’s first technology-enabled meditation pod.

We’ve entered a time in our world where we must go within to connect, seek balance, and to better ourselves so that we can better the world.

“During this pandemic and with the intense, non-stop negative news…the Somadome has become a place of refuge, reset and renewal for me…it has gone from being something I did to something that I need to do. ”

Margaret, Private User

THE SCIENCE OF SOMADOME

Somadome uses light and color therapy to transform our body’s state at the cellular level.

The dome structure gives the illusion of infinite space, immersing you into an illuminated pod of colors that coordinate with your session goals. Using colors and light to heal is an age-old technique, premised on the idea that the colors of the spectrum of visible light have specific beneficial health properties. Contemporary research shows that light helps regulate and control the autonomic nervous system and production of melatonin and cortisol, two hormones critical to health and wellness. With the option to select a single color of light or cycle through the whole spectrum, the Somadome provides an environment conducive to the gentle and positive health effects of being immersed in light.

Somadome transforms EMF frequencies that are out of harmony with our bodies’ natural electromagnetic signals.

We are constantly inundated with unnatural electromagnetic fields and wave forms created by human-made electronics. These EMF frequencies and wave forms can disrupt the natural frequencies of healthy cells and organs and create pain, fatigue, feelings of misalignment and low energy. Somadome incorporates the use of micro-crystalline ceramic tiles, which use a proprietary design to transform these unnatural waveforms into forms more like those found in nature.

Somadome uses binaural beats in guided and unguided tracks to achieve beneficial states associated with your session goals.

 

Binaural beats use varying inaudible frequencies to help guide our minds into brain states achieved during meditation. Just as Tibetan monks use singing bowls, gongs, and other instruments to help access meditative states, modern technology has perfected these binaural beat frequencies, making their benefits obtainable to anyone searching for peace and mental clarity.

Virgin – World’s first hyperloop passenger test.

Virgin – World’s first hyperloop passenger test.

LOS ANGELES, CA – JANUARY 27, 2020 – Just months after their first passenger testing, Virgin Hyperloop today unveiled its vision for the future hyperloop experience. The newly-released concept video takes the viewer step-by-step through a hyperloop journey, from arriving at the portal to boarding the pod.

“Designing a new mode of transportation from scratch is both an opportunity and a responsibility,” said Sara Luchian, Virgin Hyperloop’s Director of Passenger Experience and one of the first people to ride the hyperloop in November. “Hyperloop technology – and what it enables – is paradigm-shifting. It follows that the passenger experience should be nothing short of extraordinary.”

Virgin Hyperloop worked with world-class partners across disparate industries – including Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) for the portal designs, Teague for the pod designs, SeeThree for the video and animation, and Man Made Music for the score and sonic identity – to design a comprehensive, multi-sensory passenger experience that surpasses that of any other form of mass transit.

“Virgin Hyperloop can accelerate the future of mobility on land. The new mode of travel at supersonic speed rethinks transportation and the perception of space, landscape, time, and distance,” said Bjarke Ingels, Founder & Creative Director, BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. “In this day and age, Virgin Hyperloop taking off from our portals provides holistic, intelligent transportation for a globalized community to travel across vast distances in a safer, cleaner, easier, and faster way than airlines.”

Far from a dystopian future where dark colors, stark lighting, and screens abound, Virgin Hyperloop’s counter narrative is a more optimistic view of the future: a greener, smoother, safer, and more pleasant mass transit experience.

“We leveraged decades of experience designing how people and things move across various modalities – taking some of the best aspects from aviation, rail, automotive, and even hospitality to create a new and better passenger experience that is distinct to Virgin Hyperloop,” said John Barratt, CEO & President, Teague. “Recessed seat wells provide a greater sense of space, while the raised aisle is a touch of the unexpected and unique. Bands of greenery and wood textures subvert the aesthetic of typical mass transit materials with something optimistic and fresh. All lighting in the pod—including the unassuming information displays—are dynamic and adjust based on traveler activity and journey milestones.”

Beyond the typical touchpoints in transportation, Virgin Hyperloop also researched and incorporated findings from more non-traditional interactions, such as sound.

“Through proprietary research and a design thinking approach to creating sound and sonic solutions for Virgin Hyperloop, Man Made Music was able to address a myriad of potential challenges for this new mode of transportation, from how to evoke a sense of privacy and space to an enhanced sense of safety and calm,” said Joel Beckerman, Founder and Lead Composer at Man Made Music. “We respond to sound quicker than any other sense, so sound actually drives the multi-sensory experiences. The sonic cues of the Virgin Hyperloop identity system serves as a guide for passengers throughout their experience while instilling confidence, safety, and clarity – you ‘feel’ it rather than ‘hear’ it. Just like a great movie score, it tells you the story. We know when we’ve got it right when you don’t notice the sound at all: the interface is humanized in ways that are both fresh and familiar.”

A key pillar of Virgin Hyperloop’s passenger experience is accessibility, ensuring that this new form of transportation will expand opportunities for the masses. While ticket prices will vary depending on the exact route, a recent study in Ohio found that hyperloop fares would be more akin to the cost of driving, rather than flying.

“It’s simple. If it’s not affordable, people won’t use it,” said Jay Walder, CEO of Virgin Hyperloop. “Daily high-speed transport is currently not feasible for most people, but we want to change that notion. Imagine being able to commute between cities that are currently hours apart in minutes – and the endless possibilities that opens up.”

On demand and direct to destination, the hyperloop system would be able to transport thousands of passengers per hour, despite the fact that each vehicle carries up to 28 passengers. This high throughput is achieved by convoying, where vehicles are able to travel behind one another in the tube within milliseconds, controlled by Virgin Hyperloop’s machine intelligence software.

Following their successful passenger testing, Virgin Hyperloop is currently paving the way for the regulation and certification of hyperloop systems around the world. The company aims to achieve safety certification by 2025, with commercial operations – such as those depicted in this video – beginning in 2030.

XP-2 Test Vehicle

Our two-seater Experimental-Pod-2 (XP-2) was built to demonstrate critical safety subsystems, allowing passengers to safely travel in a hyperloop environment. Our production vehicle, however, will look radically different and seat up to 28 passengers.

Safety & Technology

You won’t need a space suit to go in our vacuum. Virgin Hyperloop is developing the necessary subsystems required to ensure traveling with hyperloop is as safe as riding an elevator. Independently validated by an Independent Safety Assessor, Certifer, our XP-2 vehicle and the DevLoop infrastructure demonstrate many of the safety-critical systems that will be found on a commercial hyperloop system, and are equipped with a state-of-the-art control system that can detect off-nominal states and rapidly trigger appropriate emergency responses.

Pod Safety Controller

The Pod Safety Controller continuously monitors all onboard sensors and computer systems to ensure passenger safety. The data is wirelessly communicated to the wayside through a certified safety protocol.

Rapid Tube Repressurization

Using distributed venting valves along the tube’s length, we can safely re-pressurize faster than an airplane can descend.

Automated Fire Suppression

Along with redundant smoke detectors, the vehicle has most onboard electronic systems enclosed with automated fire suppression.

Air Scrubbing & Filtering

Air-conditioned and scrubbed of CO2 and airborne contaminants, the air inside the vehicle is crisp, clean, and continuously monitored by the Pod Safety Controller.

Emergency Egress

Our DevLoop tube contains emergency egresses every 75m in the event passengers need to exit the vehicle.

AirLock

Our system uses airlocks to gradually and safely bring the vehicle in and out of the near-vacuum environment without needing to repressurize the entire system.

About Virgin Hyperloop

Virgin Hyperloop is the only company in the world that has successfully tested hyperloop technology with passengers, launching the first new mode of mass transportation in over 100 years. The company successfully operated an occupied hyperloop vehicle using electric propulsion and electromagnetic levitation under near-vacuum conditions, realizing a fundamentally new form of transportation that is faster, safer, cheaper, and more sustainable than existing modes. The company is now working with governments, partners, and investors around the world to make hyperloop a reality in years, not decades.

Tuna Scope – los secretos del sabor de un atún están ocultos en la cola.

El examen de atún es una de las muchas habilidades artesanales vitales que respalda la cultura culinaria que gira en torno a este pez. Es una habilidad que permite a los principales comerciantes de atún determinar propiedades tales como el sabor y la textura de un atún solo a simple vista sin probarlo ellos mismos. A medida que disminuye el número de practicantes de esta nave, estos secretos comerciales corren el peligro de desaparecer, por lo que decidimos pasar la antorcha a la IA. Cuando desee asegurarse de que las personas de todo el mundo puedan disfrutar del mismo estándar de atún delicioso, incluso en el futuro lejano.

El atún es uno de los mayores tesoros del océano.

Confiando el futuro del examen de atún a la IA.
Atún de alta calidad para todos, de forma sostenible.
Los secretos del sabor de un atún están ocultos en la cola.

La sección transversal de la cola de un atún es una hoja de ruta que detalla una historia intrincada sobre su sabor, textura, frescura y calidad general. Los principales comerciantes de atún examinarán cosas como el color y el brillo, la firmeza y las capas de grasa, y a través de un proceso forjado por la experiencia y la intuición, determinarán instantáneamente la calidad de un pescado determinado. Este examen ha sido el determinante principal de los precios en los mercados de pescado durante siglos.

Heredar el legado desaparecido de los examinadores de atún.

“No importa cuán talentoso pueda ser alguien, se necesitan al menos diez años para poder hacerlo por sí mismo”. El examen de calidad es una habilidad que se cultiva a partir de una combinación de años de entrenamiento, experiencia e intuición individual, y cada practicante tiene sus propios métodos únicos probados y verdaderos. El número de artesanos, que juzga la calidad del pescado con sus ojos altamente entrenados, se ha reducido a menos de la mitad de la edad de oro de la industria. En el futuro cercano, se teme que no habrá sucesores para continuar con la ocupación.

HISTORIA

Creamos un modelo de IA que determina instantáneamente la calidad de un atún determinado en base a un escaneo transversal de la cola. Tomamos aproximadamente 4,000 imágenes de cola, un número equivalente al que un examinador podría ver en su camino de diez años hacia la competencia, e ingresamos los datos en el programa de IA, que logró dominar la habilidad en solo un mes a través del aprendizaje automático. Este fue el nacimiento de un nuevo sucesor de la tradición del examen de atún que podría utilizarse las 24 horas del día en cualquier parte del mundo.

El desarrollo de TUNA SCOPE

En una instalación de procesamiento de pescado en Yaizu, se registraron datos de atún aleta amarilla junto con calificaciones otorgadas por examinadores reales en una escala de cuatro niveles. en una escala de cuatro a cinco niveles. Utilizando el aprendizaje automático, tomamos los datos de aproximadamente 4,000 peces y los usamos para enseñar a AI los matices inexplicables de la nave de examen de atún.

Pruebas en la planta de procesamiento de pescado de Yaizu

La aplicación de examen de calidad AI se introdujo en el proceso de inspección del atún aleta amarilla en las instalaciones de procesamiento de pescado de Yaizu. Probamos la precisión de la aplicación comparándola con los resultados de examinadores reales, revelando que la aplicación ya estaba alcanzando un nivel de precisión 78% 85% tan alto como sus contrapartes humanas con 35 años de experiencia.

La creación de “Atún AI”

Promocionándolo en restaurantes de sushi. El atún que obtuvo la clasificación más alta por la IA se convirtió en su propia marca, que fue etiquetada como “Atún AI”. Este atún examinado por IA de alta calidad fue llevado a un restaurante de sushi en Tokio, donde se sirvieron aproximadamente 1,000 platos a los clientes durante cinco días. Según una encuesta realizada en el restaurante, la marca logró una tasa de satisfacción del cliente del 90%.

TUNA SCOPE Goes Global

 

El siguiente paso de TUNA SCOPE es convertirse en una parte real del proceso de inspección en las fábricas y utilizar los datos para adquirir cada vez más habilidades. Al expandirse más allá de Japón y continuar adquiriendo datos de las pesquerías de todo el mundo,TUNA SCOPE tiene como objetivo crear un estándar mundial para la calidad del atún en el futuro cercano.

FUTURO

Habilidades artesanales en manos de la IA

La tecnología desarrollada para TUNA SCOPE tiene un potencial sin explotar para aplicaciones en una amplia variedad de industrias. Al enseñar a AI los secretos y los matices necesarios para realizar las tareas que los humanos han perfeccionado a lo largo de los años a simple vista, podemos obtener un nuevo aliado contra una serie de problemas que enfrenta la humanidad hoy en día. Ese futuro podría estar más cerca de lo que pensamos.

¿Qué es un chatbot? y como incorporan sistemas de inteligencia artificial

Qué es un chatbot technology y e incorporan sistemas de inteligencia artificial

Un chatbot es un programa informático con el que es posible mantener una conversación, tanto si queremos pedirle algún tipo de información o que lleve a cabo una acción.

Qué es un chatbot technology y e incorporan sistemas de inteligencia artificial

Qué es un chatbot technology y e incorporan sistemas de inteligencia artificial

Si  quiere comprarse unos zapatos a través de Asos tiene que acceder a su web, encontrar lo que busca y comprarlo. Pero, ¿y si Asos tuviera un bot? Solo sería necesario escribirle un mensaje a la marca a través de Facebook y decirle qué queremos.

Una de las grandes ventajas de los chatbots es que, a diferencia de las aplicaciones, no se descargan, no es necesario actualizarlos y no ocupan espacio en la memoria del teléfono. De esta forma nos evitaríamos estar saltando de una app a otra según lo que necesitemos en cada momento. ¿Las principales consecuencias? Experiencias de usuario más agradables e interacciones con el servicio de atención al cliente más rápidas y sencillas.

¿Cómo funcionan?

Los chatbots incorporan sistemas de inteligencia artificial. Por tanto, tienen la posibilidad de aprender sobre nuestros gustos y preferencias con el paso del tiempo. Siri o Cortana, por ejemplo, funcionan a gracias a este sistema (aunque todavía presentan un gran margen de mejora). Otros lugares en los que han estado en funcionamiento en los últimos años ha sido en chats como Facebook Messenger o en aplicaciones de mensajería instantánea como Telegram o Slack. En estas últimas los chatbots estaban incorporados como si fueran un contacto más.

El aerotabla se construye a partir de un núcleo aislado, que contiene HTSLs (bloques de superconductores de alta temperatura). Estos están alojados en criostatos – depósitos de nitrógeno líquido que enfrían los superconductores a -197 ° C. El tablero se coloca encima de una pista que contiene imanes permanentes. Cuando la placa se enfría hasta su temperatura de funcionamiento líneas de flujo magnético de la pista están prendidos ‘en su lugar, el mantenimiento de la altura de la libración de la junta.
