With low KW.H/kg of energy storing capacity

.................we are seeing more development of NEW LIGHT WEIGHT materials that can cope with the poorer energy output of batteries.

How'd the major auto makers will cope with CONSUMER needs for "stability", "ride comfort", "automobile compartment crush protection" will be an INTERESTING WATCH.

I'd think the development of the NEW MATERIALS itself is interesting. More and more we listen to news on new carbon fiber, ceramics, aluminium alloys being introduced into the product. There is obviously a bigger need in the aviation industry, and other personal-commercial use products.

cheerios!

What kind of new ENGINES will the USA look into!

To defeat the UAV 5th generation stealth aircraft, would need MULTI CONDITION craft.

Air, Sea and Space crafts.
With such capability, it can outrun the UAV's now being developed and is being incorporated into the various militaries  around the world. UAV weakness is the CAPABILITY of the "ADVANCED WIRELESS" video, audio, data, encryption transmission technologies.

A new ENGINE PROPULSION is needed, which will work in at least SPACE and AIR, and the more advanced system should work under the oceans - needed for TACTICAL advantage.

Cheerios!

We will be needing to develop better SYNTHETIC FUELS

..................that have BIGGER KW.H/KG to powered the 6th generation technology.

This is clearly different from "batteries" which "stores" energy.
It's closer to FUEL CELLS which converts Fuel to Useable Energy.

We have to differentiate Batteries, Fuel Cell, and Fuels!

Cheerios!

Materials development is also vital for the

.................6th generation devices. Light weight, stronger materials or better heat resistances.

We have long heard about Carbon fiber, Ceramics development from Toray, Japan, Kyocera, Japan respectively or Aluminium alloys, Titanium alloys in American Military aircraft developments. New materials development is in the pipeline ready to 'DAZZLE US".

Let's see what the Americans have in store for us in this area of development.

cheerios!

Some companies, such as Kyocera

........has been "burning the midnight oil" developing new materials and focusing on creation of new end use.

Ceramics, YES, the same silica base material that you use on tiles in your homes was the FOCUS of attention by the Kyocera corporation since 1980's. In Taiwan, PVC was selected as FOCUS for the FORMOSA corporation and it develop a HUGE RANGE of products at the same time.

We know the Space Shuttle uses CERAMIC composites for it's heat shield, but latest development of HIGH IMPACT, HIGH TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE ceramics look interesting. Since 2000, we have lots of ceramic component being introduced as BETTER PERFORMANCE spares in industries as diverse as Textiles to Home Appliances.

Cheerios!

Frequently 2 component liquid phase in

.................space, terrestrial and under ocean fuels is needed.

Hydrogen, Kerosine is cheaply available.
Solid fuel such as Alu-based has flow rate problems.

Rapid development of such synthetic fuels create the possibility for the HYPERSONIC, hybrid engines that ENGLAND is developing and implementing in their A2 program. Together with UK's UAV combat aircraft - British Club will continue to lead as BIG POWER military.

The Hybrid engine race with the UK.

These would be the A-2 engine.

High by pass Jet in Atmosphere and becomes a Reaction Engine in high speed spurt to Space.
Quality of the engine needs to be improved, FUEL types needs to improve to reduce fuel weight.

The Material also needs to be high strength/lower weight too.
Improve precision engineering to ensure ALL CONDITION fuselage is needed.

Cheerios!
