By plumb signals from sonobuoy submarines can determine its position. The satellite navigation system GPS was originally developed for the US armed forces. But today it can be used by everyone and covers the entire globe. When the direction of several of them pejlas by for example a submarine or unmanned drone, the position determined in a similar manner as in GPS. This is done through the careful calculations of ship speed, traveled distance and direction from a known starting point. Some of the challenges for BAE Systems, the system must deal with noise pollution from other sources in the seas shipping, borrningsexepeditioner and military exercises.
Nokia was the largest mobile manufacturer in the world during the late '90s and mid '00sNokia is making a comeback, releasing a new range of feature phones and tablets.The move was seen as a last-ditch attempt for the two technology giants to join forces and challenge the dominance of Apple and Google, but the pair have failed to create a meaningful phone challenger.Microsoft's Lumia range: soon to be a thing of the past?HMD has now purchased the rights to use the Nokia trademark on feature phones until 2024, and all remaining feature phone assets, including sales, manufacturing and distribution, will be sold to FIH Mobile Limited - a subsidiary of electronics manufacturer Foxxconn, best-known as one of Apple's largest suppliers for iPhone.Microsoft too has been struggling: rumours suggest plans to axe the poorly-selling Lumia line and reinvigorate its smartphones with a new Surface Phone.Lack of popular apps and an unpopular ecosystem means Microsoft holds less than 2 per cent of the global smartphone market, and sold just 2.3 million units during the first three months of the year.

WhiteHat Security founder Jeremiah Grossman has published details that could help victims of domain hijacking.The penetration tester writes how he helped an unnamed video production house to fight a scammer who had opened a mimic website to defraud customers.Staff names and photos were altered along with contact information such that customers would contact the criminal instead of the film company.Grossman grabbed WHOIS data, and used the dig command and the American Registry for Internet Numbers to find the IP address and connected hosting provider, GoDaddy, which directed the hacker to report the fraud to ICANN.The scammer cottoned on and changed his code to kill the redirect, and was soon defeated after GoDaddy took the fraudulent site down.The largest and most vigilant brands pre-register copycat domains, and typosquatting domains where a common mistyped key would lead to another website.
NASA engineers think about it rather a lot, which is why they ve been dropping the new Orion module, full of crash-test dummies, into a huge swimming pool.The space agency points out that for the briefest of moments, even after decelerations with parachutes, the impact with the sea creates the mission s greatest deceleration and with that, some of the greatest forces on the human body.The engineers do the only sensible thing and load up a module with crash test dummies, then drop it into NASA Langley Research Center s 20-foot-deep Hydro Impact Basin.Not only can we learn how the structure reacts to a water impact in these tests, but we can also understand how splashdown loads are transmitted to the seats and crew, explains Mark Baldwin, who s the crew injury lead for Orion at Lockheed Martin.So far, the team has carried out four drops into the pool.But it will now embark on a series of swing tests that investigate what happens if the capsule enters the water at unusual angles.

When birds or other winged creatures tire or want to observe their surroundings, they have the option of landing and then taking off again.Perching saves them from having to continuously hover.If we want to have drones to help our futures lives, said Moritz Graule, who did the research as a graduate student at Harvard University s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, we need a way for them to save energy, and perching is just a very natural approach.The findings move mini sensor-toting drones one small step closer to being a viable technology for use as surveillance tools during disaster-relief missions and as relay points in communications networks, according to the researchers.As soon as the voltage is turned off, that gentle gripping force disappears, and the robot is free to fly away.More evolved, commercially available versions are still at least five to 10 years away from production, according to the researchers.

The cybersecurity industry could see a boost in venture capital, thanks to new threats the Internet of Things IoT provide to smart homes, autonomous cars, and future factories.Investment in cybersecurity rose by 78 percent in 2015 to $228 million and Lux Research expects it to reach $400 million this year, in part because of the rapid adoption of IoT devices.Over $800 million has been raised since 2000 for the 77 startups assessed in research and advisory firm s report.Better security is a necessity as we move toward a connected age, where our cars, homes, and money are all controlled by computers.The stakes are much higher, as hackers will be able to attack not just our PayPal and Facebook accounts but our cars and homes.Analysts suspect on the hacker s side that ransomware, a hacker s favorite that invades your system and forces you to pay to take back control, might become more prevalent as hackers attempt to hack your electricity or smart car.
"The more we learn about the balance sheets of Americans, it becomes quite alarming," said Caroline Ratcliffe, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute focusing on poverty and emergency savings issues.Lack of savings can lead to homelessness, or other problems."The challenge for many often come from economic forces beyond their control such as a dip in the stock market that threatens their job or an unexpected medical bill, risks that have shattered the confidence of most in the broader U.S. economy.Thirteen percent would skip paying other bills, and 11 percent said they would likely not pay the bill at all.The AP-NORC results also correlate with a 2015 study by the Federal Reserve in which 47 percent of respondents said they either could not cover a $400 emergency expense or would have to sell something or borrow money.In the poll, 21 percent of Americans say they would strongly consider the option of putting the unexpected $1,000 bill on a credit card to be paid in full when their statement came due.

The truth, it turns out, is much weirder than that: Members of Rage Against the Machine have teamed up with musicians from classic hip-hop groups Cypress Hill and Public Enemy to form a supergroup called Prophets Of Rage, according to Rolling Stone.The cryptic web announcement appeared alongside a series of posters around Los Angeles, which read, Clear the way for Prophets of Rage.Summer 2016.Rage Against the Machine haven t released a new album since 2000, and have repeatedly hinted at new material since their last live performance together in 2011, but have yet to release anything.The band also has a show booked at L.A. s Whiskey a Go Go, and are reportedly considering a summer tour.Whether or not the outfit will release recorded material remains to be seen, but given the fact that such high-profile musicians are in the mix, it seems likely that labels will be interested in courting the musicians — if they don t already have some kind of secret deal somewhere.
We are not told why the implementation of the plan and the whole negotiation was disconnected with Lidl Finland. The status of the Defence Staff Management Division Manager Vesa Halinen says that decisions on further use of the premises have been performed. Unfortunately, the design is in progress. The Defence Forces expropriated plots firearms region near Taipalsaari last summer. The Finnish holiday village owners were told that the price received state offered a better deal from a Russian buyer. Basic correction was planned, but without the intended purpose can not be done, says Johansson.
Aston Martin has officially debuted the Vanquish Zagato Concept, a one-off showstopper combining the company s bullish good looks with the legendary artistry of Italian design house Zagato.Starting on May 21, the car will be showcased at the Concorso d Eleganza Villa d Este, a classic car exhibition held on the banks of Italy s Lake Como.The Italian influence is especially evident out back as there are four exhaust outlets instead of two, and the rear fascia features rounded tail lamps in true Zagato style.Over the years, we have developed and refined our own design language and we have always gone that little bit further with our special series cars like CC-100, One-77, and Aston Martin Vulcan, said Aston s executive VP, Marek Reichman.Read more: We left the skis at home and shredded some powder in an Aston Martin insteadInside, the spiffy grand tourer boasts a quilted Z pattern across the upholstery, and there are accents of anodized bronze, aniline leather, and carbon-fiber just about everywhere you look.It d be a shame if such talented artisans did all this without touching the engine, but don t worry — the 6.0-liter V12 under the hood has been upgraded to 600 horsepower.

Bill Gurley just wrote an excellent essay on the state of the unicorn market.Gurley covers the financial and emotional forces at play and offers great advice for founders of these highly valued billion-dollar-plus companies.As a result, many companies today operate with unsustainable burn rates that need to be reduced before all their money goes up in smoke.So I advise all of our startups to remain focused on growth while spending parsimoniously.We are all influenced in our investment decisions by psychological tendencies like recency bias and confirmation bias.If many of our portfolio companies are having a hard time raising follow-on rounds, we re more reluctant to fund a good idea that isn t quite an awesome idea.
