The Valkyrie Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Can Launch Another Small UAV Right From The Weapon Compartment.

No comments
On March 26, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) named Valkyrie opened the door of the weapon compartment. It then dropped below not a bomb but another smaller drone. This small plane is like a scout sent on other more complex missions that a large plane cannot do.

This successful test has opened up the idea of future drones that could carry many small drones for combat.

The Valkyrie XQ-58A with a length of 8.5 meters and a wingspan of 6.7 meters is on a sixth test flight at the Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona. Valkyrie has been flying over the Sonoran Desert near Yuma Stadium since 2019.

More than just a regular drone, the Valkyrie can also drop another smaller aircraft from the armory, the ALTIUS-600.

The Valkyrie is part of the Pentagon's effort to find a drone with enhanced combat and support capabilities for the fighter. The cost to build the Valkyrie is about $2 million, relatively cheap compared to investing and building combat machines such as the F-35A stealth aircraft.

Meanwhile, the ALTIUS is like a miniature Predator drone, with an upside down V-shaped tail on the fuselage approximately 1 meter long. Its wings are about 1.2 meters long in the fuselage that will open when dropped, making it easier to launch from the cannon, eject from the helicopter or out from the bomb bay. Like the Predator, the ALTIUS has both a propeller and a rotating camera.

During flight, the ALTIUS travels at 111km / h, although it is capable of rushing up to 160km / h. With the above cruising speed, it could fly more than 4 hours and the flight range was up to 444km. That is the distance traveled between the city of Boston and Philadelphia. The ALTIUS is a reconnaissance drone but its nose camera is interchangeable and interchangeable, consisting of electronic warfare (jamming) and dynamics (explosives), turning the reconnaissance machine. This becomes a weapon, ready to neutralize or destroy anything it points to.

Area-I, the company that makes ALTIUS and AI for UAVs, allows one person to fly multiple UAVs. In the past, the control system allowed one person on a helicopter to fly four ALTIUS drones at the same time. This way saves money and time more than the remote control.

With the Valkyries capable of launching ALTIUS, the US Air Force can plan and increase the number of UAVs for each mission. They can fight over vast expanses of air, hunt for aircraft or targets on the ground, and support both unmanned and manned aircraft.

Kratos, the manufacturer of Valkyrie proudly in 2018, said that the UAV will have a maximum range of more than 5.5 thousand km, although it is currently estimated that it is only about 1.85 thousand km. So if it can launch an additional pair of ALTIUS reconnaissance aircraft, the scope of observation and targeting could be expanded. It will also allow for force concentration, guidance for precision weapons or clearing the way for other attacks.

To ensure the drone could survive in the future, both Valkyrie and ALTIUS could swap part of the airframe with new parts. Thanks to the modular mechanism, as long as the airframe is in effect, manufacturers can add sensors, lift payloads, and replace other hardware.

The Valkyrie is also an important part of the US military's Skyborg drone program and paves the way for new inventions in the future.

In order to successfully launch ALTIUS from Valkyrie, the Air Force Research Laboratory and drone manufacturers have created a special vehicle and custom code to connect and synchronize them.

Deploying UAVs capable of launching other smaller UAVs was something military scientists had long expected. Only we will have to wait and see, it will soon be applied in real combat and effectively support the army in airstrike operations.

In the future it will be interesting to see combat UAVs that can carry a smaller army of UAVs for large battles or attack multiple targets. At that time, people will only be present when absolutely necessary.

Data Shows That The Energy Consumption Of Bitcoin Mining Has Skyrocketed, Equivalent To A Whole Year's Electricity In A Developed Country

No comments
Bitcoin has just risen to a new high of $64,000, which once again broke through many people's imaginations.

Due to the simple and rude nature of mining, it can be said that it is not environmentally friendly, which has also caused concerns about carbon emission organizations.

According to a report from Citigroup, the University of Cambridge’s Alternative Finance Center estimates that the electricity demand generated by Bitcoin may reach 14.3 billion kilowatt-hours per year, which is 4% higher than Argentina’s annual power generation in 2019, and is between Sweden and Malaysia’s annual consumption.

Available information shows that this level is approximately equivalent to the electricity consumption of the whole society in Shanghai for one month.

Of course, in order to maintain profits, miners generally use the cheapest electricity. For example, in China, during the rainy season, mines will favor Sichuan to use relatively cheap hydroelectric power. Research shows that 39% to 76% of Bitcoin mining uses renewable energy.

[Rumor] Elon Musk May Cancels The Upcoming Model 2 Project

No comments
Currently, Tesla has launched Model 3, Model Y, Model S, Model X, Cybertruck and other models, covering cars, SUVs, and even pickup trucks.

However, Tesla is not satisfied with this, it may launch Model 2 positioned as an entry-level version.

Recently, on overseas social software, a blogger and Tesla CEO Elon Musk discussed the naming of Tesla’s new car. Musk bluntly said: I hate the name Model 2 very much, and I will terminate the project if I mention it again.

Earlier, Musk said at the financial report meeting that Tesla cars are not close enough to the people, and it is necessary to launch a cheaper model.

So everyone understands the car as Model 2, but from Musk's answer this time, the new car will adopt a new name.

It is worth noting that there have been many media reports that Tesla will launch a model priced at 25,000 to 30,000 US dollars, which is specially developed for China, Europe and other markets. Compact model.

But then the news was dismissed, and a relevant person from Tesla China responded to the Science and Technology Innovation Board Daily that “Tesla may launch a cheaper model of about 160,000” is a rumor and has never been said."

Although Tesla denies this, according to an exposed document, Tesla's Shanghai plant will import the third domestic model, but the news about the car is still confusing.

As competition in the domestic new energy vehicle market continues to expand, it is inevitable for Tesla to launch an entry-level model, which will further help Tesla complete its annual sales target of one million vehicles.

[Rumor] GTA VI Will Not Be Set In The 80s, Insider Claims

No comments
GTA VI will not be set in the 80s, but in modern times. At least that's what Tom Henderson, an insider known for the right information from Call of Duty, says. Rockstar Games has not yet given information about the state of development of the game.

The impatience of fans around the next title in the franchise is making them question the leakers. When asked about possible news around the game, Henderson responded as follows:

The statement even makes some sense, since GTA V and GTA Online contain many elements, such as cell phones and other technologies, that would be missed in a possible sequence. The new game may even take time to show up, as according to the Kotaku website , in 2020 the game was in its initial state of development, and Rockstar should not announce it anytime soon.
<
br /> It is worth mentioning: Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive did not announce GTA VI. Therefore, this news should be treated as a rumor and taken with caution.

GTA VI: female protagonist and more news


Also reported by Henderson, another rumor points out that GTA VI may have two protagonists: a man and a woman. This would be the first time in history that the franchise would feature a playable female character.

Still according to the information, the moves for the new game have already started and Take-Two would have registered a patent with suggestions for the title.

Ford CEO Criticizes Tesla For Customers Who Use Unfinished Products

No comments
Yesterday, On April 14, Ford Motor CEO Jim Farley on Twitter promoted the hands-free high-speed steering system that would be available on its models. However, the content of the tweet caught the attention: "BlueCruise! We tested it in a real way so that customers don't have to do that anymore".

This is the message that "sends" Tesla CEO Elon Musk. In October 2020, Tesla launched a trial (beta), incomplete version of the "Full Self-Driving" (FSD) premium driver assistance system to its customers. Only those who purchase the FSD option will have access to this version to try the latest feature before fixing all bugs.

Tesla revealed to have provided the FSD beta to 2,000 drivers, but disenfranchised some because of lack of concentration while on the road. Therefore, the company is complained of using drivers and public roads to test the system, viewing humans as lab mice.

In his most recent Twitter update on April 9, Musk said Tesla is almost ready for the FSD Beta version 9.0, which has been significantly improved, especially with bad weather and difficult corners.

Despite the name "fully self-driving", the FSD system cannot control a Tesla car in all common driving situations. According to CNBC, Tesla once told the California Highway Department that the Autopilot and FSD systems are not automatic.

Tesla has also been criticized for naming the feature FSD in the US. A German court banned Tesla from using the words Autopilot and Full Self-Driving in advertising because they overblown the car's capabilities.

In addition, there have been several recent collisions involving Tesla, leading to federal investigations to determine whether driver assistance technology contributed or was the cause of the crash. According to Reuters, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Commission has opened 27 investigations into Tesla car crashes.

Ford Motors said the BlueCruise system will be launched later this year on two models Ford F-150 2021 and Mustang Mach-E 2021 after testing 500,000 miles and modifications. The system does not have as many features as Tesla's FSD, but does not require the driver to "check-in" by touching the steering wheel. Instead, the camera system inside the car will monitor the driver's eye and concentration level on the road.

The system is also limited to certain highways in the US and Canada, while Tesla does not ban the use of such Autopilot and FSD.

Tesla's Autopilot Mode Saved Life As It Automatic Switch To Emergency Lane To Avoid Major Accident

No comments
Although there is the most controversy about Tesla's “automatic assisted driving” causing car accidents, in the consensus of many car owners and consumers, Tesla's automated assisted driving is currently one of the most excellent experience and functionality among electric vehicle brands. One.

In addition, there are also many videos on the Internet showing that Tesla automatically assists in driving. During high-speed driving, it automatically changes lanes to avoid other vehicles or pedestrians and animals, thus avoiding accidents in time.

A few days ago, a video of a driving recorder uploaded by Tesla showed that the driver was driving normally on the viaduct at a speed of about 70km/h. There is a turtle speed car in front of the left lane occupying the road, and a white car and a white car behind the turtle speed car. The red Mazda is following the car.

The owner drove the Tesla in the middle lane, but when he was very close to the tortoise car ahead, the red Mazda at the rear suddenly changed lanes, and the owner had no time to react. Just when he was about to hit the car, Tesla was in an emergency autopilot directly took over the steering wheel and automatically changed the vehicle to the right lane, avoiding a major accident.

Afterwards, the car owner also sighed about the excellence of Tesla's auto-assisted driving, and said that in the future, he will be a loyal Tesla fan.

However, although Tesla has performed well in many situations, there have also been many accidents involving Tesla's auto-assisted driving in China.

Previously, some car owners also uploaded videos stating that Tesla failed to identify vehicles in adjacent lanes during high-speed driving using the auto-assisted driving function during cruise, resulting in accidents and raised doubts about Tesla's assisted autopilot function.

So, in your opinion, what is the level of Tesla's auto-assisted driving function? Will you trust this function when driving?

The total market value of global cryptocurrencies has now surpassed the market value of Apple. Asset Dash data shows that Apple's market value is now approximately $2.25 trillion. Coingecko quotations show that the total market value of global cryptocurrencies is now approximately 2.31 trillion US dollars.

As one of the representatives of cryptocurrency, the value of Bitcoin exceeded 62,000 US dollars per coin yesterday, a record high; the cryptocurrency Ethereum also exceeded 2200 US dollars per coin, setting a new record high. On February 18 this year, Bitstamp data showed that $52,000 on the Bitcoin site once again set a record high. In less than two months, the price of one bitcoin has risen by exactly $10,000.

On February 18, Rick Rieder, head of fixed income at BlackRock, the world's largest asset management company, confirmed on Wednesday that the company is entering the field of Bitcoin investment. He said: "We have started to get involved in Bitcoin. My feeling is that the technology has evolved and the regulations have evolved to the point where many people think it should be part of the portfolio."

A few months ago, both Rieder and BlackRock CEO Larry Fink expressed interest in investing in cryptocurrencies. The documents submitted earlier this year also mentioned that certain BlackRock funds are invested in the field of cryptocurrency. MicroStrategy Inc. It has been stated that it will sell 600 million U.S. dollars of convertible bonds and buy more bitcoins with the proceeds. Some market participants believe that the demand from institutional investors and companies is expected to expand, thereby pushing Bitcoin to rise further.
