    Commanders could now place soldiers strategically around the battle field knowing that their members would be reached and placed into the next higher level of medical care anywhere on the battlefield. This was made possible by dividing each Medevac unit into platoons and embedding them on Forward Operating Bases (FOB), in order to further extend their range. We could now place a single Medevac within a single region and then further divide them up into individual team sites consisting of 3 UH60 helicopters, with a team to man and operate each aircraft. Utilizing this method will guarantee GFC’s 24 hours of coverage wherever they emplace their troops. Advantages of Medevac Serving as a force multiplier, this platform gives the GFC’s the advantage of clearing the battlefield of wounded personnel and continue operations. Along with quick response times, these teams can provide en route medical that is essential in enhancing the livelihood of wounded, injured and sick personnel. Medevac teams are comprised of dedicated Medical platform with Medical professionals with equipment that is specifically designed for casualty care as the team gets the patient to the next level of combat…

    Objective: The lab we completed today was “Equilibrium of coplanar forces”. The objectives of todays lab was to study the composition and equilibrium as well as study the rectangular resolution and equilibrium of coplanar forces. Principles being examined: The main principle being examined in this experiment is the fact that several forces that line on a plane and pass through the same point can be balanced by a single force that is passing through the same point. We do this by finding the…

    (Alsomitra macrocarpa) seeds. They have light wings with a large surface area. Its aerodynamic design allows it to glide several hundred meters. Its aerodynamic shape inspired the design of airplane (Walker,2009). Based on this we hypothesized that large surface area will decrease the falling velocity and the seeds will disperse farther because of increased air resistance. Methods: On September 1, 2017, we made artificial seeds based on Javan Cucumber vine glider seeds. We used aluminum foil,…

    Until further development of additional technologies, a lot of drones in the hands of the public will be grounded (Pomerleau, 2015). Over time, these regulations are slated to change because of future developments of the technology, such as “sense and avoid” capabilities (Pomerleau, 2015). In the end, the FAA would like for all drones to have avoidance control technology on-board, that’s even for the smaller commercial drones available on the market (Pomerleau, 2015). The FAA would also…

    Airplane; a powered flying vehicle with fixed wings and a weight greater than that of the air it displaces. Airplanes to many are just aircrafts able to get them from point A to point B. They are also known to fly through the air for military uses. We all know what they are, but do we ever take the time to think about how they ever came around and who was able to invent such a great invention? On December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilber Wright were the first people ever to fly a gasoline powered,…

    On December 17th, 1903, two Americans, Wilbur and Orville Wright created the first successful airplane design. As the only sustained, controlled, heavier-than-air, human flight of the time, it was groundbreaking. Furthermore, their three-axis control became and remains the standard steering system on various fixed-wing aircrafts. Their basic design would be developed into the much-more-practical Wright Flyer III. However, large scale usage of aviation technology would not be observed until World…
