GateKeeper: In Space Debris Detection Technology
Popularly predicted by Donald Kessler, the Kessler Effect seems to be more of a descriptor of the current low-Earth orbit conditions rather than a prophetic warning. The idea is that there are going to be so many satellites and other debris in low-Earth orbit that collisions between objects may become inevitable. Because of the high density of space...

Low-Power, Compact Artificial Seismic Source
This technology is a system to create a shock impulse on the ground. It operates through a gear-motor that rotates a crank which lifts a linear slider. The slider is mounted in a massive body hammer that compresses a concentric spring on the slider shaft when the gear-motor rotates the crank. This causes the crank to rotate freely and the hammer to...
