    The large waves created by earthquakes under the sea floor destroy thousands of lives and livelihoods each year, but we know very little about how these massive walls of water behave. Dr Tiziana Rosetto (UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering) and colleagues studying fluid dynamics have created a completely new way of generating models of these waves. The information they gain allows them to predict the damage exacted by tsunami on buildings and infrastructure, helping communities worldwide defend against these potential disasters.

    This underground facility freed up land the size of 400 football fields. That's about half the size of Pasir Ris New Town! From conceptualising to commissioning, the Underground Ammunition Facility (UAF) took the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) more than 10 years to build. In this video, defence engineers from DSTA talk about how they pushed the boundaries of conventional research to deliver this ground-breaking innovation.

SkyWall100 offers a cost effective way of dealing with the drone threat. OpenWorks Engineering, a group of British engineers, has invented a system that offers security operators a ground-breaking alternative way to defeat nefarious drones; to be displayed at the UK Home Office’s ‘Security and Policing Event’ on 8th March. Drone use (quadcopters, UAVs) is on the increase – and is regularly compromising security and privacy laws and the safety or security of both the public and high profile VIPs/celebrities. There is a broad range of current concepts to defeat drones, including jamming their command signals, burning them out of the sky with high-power lasers and attempting to train eagles to catch them. The SkyWall concept is simple; physically capture a drone in a net and bring it to the ground safely under a parachute. Physically capturing a drone is the best way to ensure control of a situation is maintained. Once captured it can be impounded, forensically investigated or simply handed back with some words of education where appropriate. Perhaps more importantly, the potential legal implications of damaging the pilot’s property (drone) are mitigated. The OpenWorks Engineering team will officially launch their SkyWall100 drone defence system at the Home Office S&P Event; a cost effective system that could be deployed by government authorities and private security firms. Skywall 100 comprises of a man portable compressed air launcher and an intelligent projectile with on-board countermeasures. The launcher uses a computerised SmartScope to calculate the drone’s flight path and directs the operator on where to aim the launcher, to ensure the drone is intercepted. When the operator pulls the trigger the projectile is programmed so that it deploys its on-board net and parachute at precisely the right time to catch the target drone. OpenWorks Engineering will develop a range of air powered launchers and intelligent projectiles to provide for the wide range of scenarios conceivable, these include permanent systems for the defence of critical national infrastructure. Chris Down, Managing Director of OpenWorks, said: “OpenWorks Engineering believes that security enforcement authorities need a cost-effective and proportionate way of protecting the public and high profile individuals and we wanted to put a system on the market that offered just that. “Authorities around the world have been looking for a system like this and we are proud to continue the tradition of British innovation in the security industry.” OpenWorks Engineering is already engaged with a number of government and private organisations across the world and is expecting to see the first SkyWall100 systems in use before the end of 2016.
