Straight waveguide sections cover 5.85-110GHz over 13 bands

Straight waveguide sections cover 5.85-110GHz over 13 bands
Pasternack has released a series of straight waveguide sections in sizes ranging from WR-10 to WR-137. Typical applications include instrumentation, test benches, high-efficiency RF/Microwave transmission, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom networks. The line of straight waveguide sections consists of 62 models that operate in the frequency range of 5.85 to 110GHz and in 13 waveguide bands from C to W. They also deliver VSWR as low as 1.03:1.

Build a Pi-powered plane watcher

Build a Pi-powered plane watcher
This project uses a Raspberry Pi with super low cost software-defined radio (SDR) hardware to receive tracking information from the Mode-S transponders of aircraft up to hundreds of km away, with the addition of a neat 3.5” TFT display to provide a handy summary of airspace activity.

Real time imaging of medaka aboard space station

Real time imaging of medaka aboard space station
Akira Kudo at Tokyo Tech and colleagues report in Scientific Reports that live-imaging and transcriptome analysis of medaka fish transgenic lines lead to immediate alteration of cells responsible for bone structure formation. These findings are important for assessing the effects microgravity on long term human space missions. Space travel in a reduced gravity environment can have lasting effects on the body.

Three startups ready for ESA BIC launch

Three startups ready for ESA BIC launch
Many creative minds dream of outer space – in Switzerland too. While Switzerland will not be sending any of its own rockets into space, it does make a major contribution to space technology and its universities and startups make it a world leader in cutting-edge technology. That is why the European Space Agency (ESA) approached Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Education and Research and Innovation (SERI) to establish a Business Incubation Center in Switzerland alongside its existing ESA BICs.
