Aluminium Liner without weld seams Helium Xenon has been gaining importance in the Space industry due to its use as propellant in electric propulsion thrusters which, due to their very high specific impulse, are often used in satellites. The storage of Xenon is complex due to the extremely high per..
High Altitude Wind Energy Conversion. Renewable energy, from sources such as wind, is of random and intermittent nature. Also, at higher altitudes wind blows with higher speeds and since wind power increases with the cube of speed, both the power and energy densities are far superior to those at ..
High Altitude Platforms Earth Observation (EO), GMES (Global Monitoring, Environment and Security) and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) are growing businesses which the Space Agencies already estimate to be worth over $5Bn with possibilities as varied as terrain mapping, climate change monitori..
CO2 recycling into Valuable Hydrocarbon Products. The sharp increase witnessed in atmospheric CO2 concentration is currently acknowledged as the single most important environmental problem facing mankind. Thankfully, this focused attention had the merit of speeding up applied research on the subjec..
Omnidea is currently engaged in the design of a Magnetic Pulse Welding machine capable of performing beyond crimping solutions for typical aerospace materials such as AA6000/7000, CRES 304/316 and Ti-6-4, in orbital configuration for large diameter and thick walled parts. Omnidea is aiming to improv..
