Dubai Police presenting a Hoversurf in Gitex Technology Week

In an annual technology exhibition called the Gitex Technology Week is currently taking place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, October 8-12, 2017, the Dubai Police presented various their support tools either in use today or for the future. One of them, a Hoversuf-flying patrol vehicle.

On the RKPB's hand, these Mi-26T2 helicopter went through a revolution. The helicopter from heavy-lift transport class then has a glass cockpit with LCD, control panel, airborne computer and infrared tracking system. Even if desired, the Mi-25T2 helicopter can also be equipped with TSL-1600 Tranzas device, an additional instrument to support night flight by adopting night vision goggles (NVG).

Other avionics features installed on the Mi-26T2 helicopter such as BREO-26 digital avionics suite to improve flight stability and control in various conditions and terrain. Then there is the NPK 90-2 flight and navigation system combined with AVSTAR/GLONASS satellite based communication system. The Mi-25T2 is also equipped airborne flight recorder system, backup device system, on-board control system, and a gyro stabilized optoelectronic clock system.

On engine's side, the Mi-26T2 also has been modernized by using the new Ivchenko-Progress D-136-2 turbo engine from Motor Sich. The machine has a Full Authority Automatic Control (FADEC) technology. This machine is capable of spraying power of 11,650 hp and can be increased to 12,500 hp in a short time, for emergency conditions. 

The new engine is also capable of showing a steady performance even though the helicopter is assigned in hot areas and at altitudes. Standard fly helicopter cruising distance reached 800 km with a maximum speed of 295 kph, but with an extra fuel tank, mileage of this helicopter can be increased up to 1,905 km.
The Mi-26T2 is the world's largest helicopter operated today with a maximum takeoff weight of 56 tons and is capable of carrying a total cargo weighing of 20 tons. It is certain that this helicopter is able to carry the BMP-3F amphibious tank which is the mainstay of Indonesian Marines or Ural 4320 trucks.

Collaboration between the auto makers with the movie makers are already common. Usually, the latest cars starred a particular television series. You can see an example of some of the Hollywood's box-office movies such as "Fast and Furious", "Transformers", or "James Bond".

But, what if the film tells the story of the 28th centuries? Of course there is no manufacturer that has been producing or designing a car for use in next few centuries. In addition, by using a car with today's technology for the film tells the story of human life in the next 700 years certainly not realistic.

Lexus faced this challenge when collaborating with renowned movie director Luc Besson in making the movie titled "Valerian and the City with a Thousand Planets," a science fiction film that will be aired in July 2017 and is an adaptation of a comic titled "Valerian and Laureline".

In the film, starring by Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, and Rihanna, one of the future vehicles of Lexus has been shown up on the screen. The vehicle named SkyJet was designed by Lexus in collaborating with creative team of Valerian movie.

SkyJet itself was designed by Takeaki Kato, head engineer of Lexus and a Japanese design firm who commissioned to design a picture of the universe in the 28th century. They created a spaceship with one passenger that streaking like a jet, but still similar to the Lexus cars that existed now.

In the trailers that have been released, the car looks like flying whales streaking in a corridor of the city of the future named Alpha. If you are observant, you will see the Lexus logo on the tip of the SkyJet snout.
"In this partnership, we look for a brand that pioneered the innovation and technology, which is more focused on the future rather than the past," said Luc Besson in a statement. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOEVOLUTION]

These aircraft offer an amazing experience

Windspeed Technologies, an aerospace company currently designing an airplane that has a solution to reduce boredom when inside the cabin. Windspeed are designing SkyDeck aircraft, which is basically the equivalent of aeronautics for the panoramic sunroof.
The SKyDeck offer an amazing experience while on long-distance flight. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1dD5Iq)
As reported by Autoevolution on Monday, December 14, 2015, the basic idea of ​​making this aircraft is to be entertained while on the flight, which is often tedious if in the long-distance flights. Windspeed have a solution that passengers do not feel bored while traveling.

Therefore, the aircraft is designed to use a transparent canopy and passenger seat therein that may arise to the top of the plane' cabin in order to see the scenery while traveling. After making the development of more than one year, the project is finally ready to be implemented.
The transparent canopy located on the SkyDeck, will be as strong as the other aircraft exterior parts. The materials used are also able to withstand all kinds of bad weather.
The biggest problem in coming up with a functional design is aerodynamic interference with the aircraft's tail. It's not like doing spacewalks, but at least you'll pay less for an amazing experience. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOEVOLUTION]
