Over sixty years ago, the first Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), known as Project Ozma, was realized. This campaign was led by legendary astronomer Frank Drake, who relied on the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in West Virginia to listen to Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani for any signs of radio transmission. Since then, the field of SETI has become more sophisticated thanks to more advanced radio telescopes, better data analysis and international collaboration. In the years to come, SETI will also benefit from advances in exoplanet studies and next-generation instruments and surveys.

In addition to examining exoplanets for signs of technological activity (aka “technosignatures”), there are also those who recommend that we look for them here at home. Examples include the Galileo Project, dedicated to the study of interstellar objects (ISO) and unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). There is also the Penn State Center for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, a research group dedicated to advancing SETI through the search for technosignatures. In a recent postthey explain how future SETI efforts should consider searching for extraterrestrial technology in our solar system.

The PSETI Center is made up of researchers from Penn State University, blue marble institute of space science (BMSIS), the SETI Institutethe Institute of Planetary Sciences (PSI), NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and several universities. The article they recently wrote was the subject of a report titled “Opportunities for Technosignature Science in the Decadal Survey of Planetary Science and Astrobiology”, presented to First Penn State SETI Symposium – which took place from June 27 to 30.

Throughout its history, the SETI domain has focused primarily on observing distant star systems and galaxies for signs of technological activity. These investigations have all looked for signs of radio transmissions as this is the most effective method of communication based on well-known physics (by our standards). But in the years to come, SETI researchers hope to expand their network and look for other means of communication, such as directed energy, neutrinos and even gravitational waves. These and other possibilities were described in NASA’s Technosignature report, published in 2019.

Additionally, there is a growing movement among SETI researchers who want to expand the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) here at home. Dr. Jacob Haqq-Misra, senior scientist at the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science and lead author of the report, is one such person. Haqq-Misra’s research focuses on the conditions that allow life to emerge and thrive in the Universe and the ability to detect life on other planets through signs of biological activity (“biosignatures”). ) or technological. As he told Universe Today via email:

“Most SETI research has focused on finding technosignatures in other star systems, [while] only a handful have searched for technosignatures in our own solar system. We can’t rule out the possibility of technosignatures in the solar system yet, so it would be interesting to watch. »

For years, Haqq-Misra’s work has also focused on the types of technosignatures we should be looking for. This included a NASA-funded study he conducted in 2020 alongside Professor Adam Frank of the University of Rochester, Avi Loeb and Manasvi Lingam from the Harvard & Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and Jason Wright from Pennsylvania State University. This study aimed to look for traces of chlorofluorocarbons (CFS) – specifically tetrafluoromethane (CF4) and trichlorofluoromethane (CCl3F) – in the atmospheres of exoplanets and large arrays of solar panels.

Earlier this year, Haqq-Misra teamed up again with Frank, Wright, Lingam and other colleagues to author a study on how the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) could search for extraterrestrial civilizations by looking for signs of air pollution. But as Haqq-Misra expressed, SETI research must also expand to take into account technological activity and objects that might be here in our solar system. These efforts have received a boost in recent years, thanks to interstellar objects (ISOs) like ‘Oumuamua (which flew past Earth in 2017) and 2I/Borisov, detected two years later.

The detection of these objects confirmed what astronomers had suspected for some time, that ISOs regularly enter the solar system. Other research has shown that some of these visitors are periodically captured by the solar system and has even suggested where some of them might be found today. Last but not least, multiple proposals have been made since 2017 for missions that could encounter ‘Oumuamua or intercept future ISOs and recover samples from them. If even one of these ISOs were of artificial origin, the scientific fallout would be immeasurable.

If there are Von Neumann probes in the solar system – particularly in the main asteroid belt, the Kuiper belt and the Oort cloud, where they would be most difficult to detect – then relatively inexpensive missions to search for them might provide similar returns. Haqq-Misra described the form these missions could take and how they could search for possible technosignatures:

“Orbiters, rovers and probes that explore planetary bodies would be well suited to limit the presence of technosignatures on surfaces. Missions that observe small bodies such as asteroids and Kuiper Belt Objects would be ideal for searching for artifacts floating or orbiting in space. Ground and space observatories may also be able to help with research.

These objectives are consistent with the Decadal Survey of Planetary Science and Astrobiology (2023-2032) written by the National Research Council (NRC) and published on April 19, 2022. The survey recommends several missions for the next decade, such as a Uranus Orbiter and Probe (UOP), an Enceladus orbiter and lander, and crewed exploration of the Moon and Mars . An ISO intercept mission is also recommended, as the comet interceptor the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) are developing. As stated in the survey:

“Over the next decade, the rate of discovery of ISOs is expected to increase significantly. By discovering and characterizing other ISOs, we can compare them to small populations of solar system bodies and potentially narrow down their birthplace. Haqq-Misra and his colleagues note in their report that such a mission would also offer opportunities to limit the presence of technosignatures on ISOs. As he explained, this would require no changes to the mission architecture or instrumentation:

“We encourage scientists and mission planners to consider the kind of technosignature science they can already do with their existing solar system exploration program. Our report highlights a number of ways the recommendations of the 10-Year Survey could advance the science of technosignature without the need to add new instrumentation. For example, the current Mars exploration program may impose constraints on technosignatures on the surface of Mars by analyzing high-resolution images from other Mars sciences.

The objectives of the PSETI report are also consistent with those of the Galileo project, which will rely on astronomical, atmospheric and space observations (combined with machine learning algorithms) to characterize ISOs and UAFs. The project will rely on instruments such as the Vera C. Rubin Observatory (VRO), which will detect ISOs as they enter our solar system (at the rate of two per month) once it begins its Survey inherited from space and time (LSST). Along with the many next-generation observatories that will soon be operational, the number of known ISOs is expected to increase exponentially.

In the meantime, Haqq-Misra and his team hope their paper will inspire aspiring SETI researchers and veterans to look beyond traditional boundaries. With a few simple modifications, missions destined for locations throughout the solar system in the coming years could also become frontline SETI missions. As Haqq-Misra summarizes:

“We hope our report will encourage scientists, mission planners and administrators to consider the relevance of technosignature science for their existing and planned missions. We have many capabilities to limit the prevalence of technosignatures in the solar system, and so it is worth considering this possibility as we continue to explore the solar system.

Throughout our solar system, there are countless places where extinct alien spacecraft could linger. According to recent research, ISOs captured by the solar system are most often found between the orbits of Jupiter and Neptune. As for working probes and Von Neumann machines, smart money says they would be beyond Neptune’s orbit, residing in the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud. As far as we know, there could be dozens of probes in our solar system searching for biosignatures and technosignatures themselves!

Maintaining an inclusive, rules-based multilateral system is ‘the only way forward’, says Vivian Balakrishnan Sat, 24 Sep 2022 22:32:51 +0000

“A new world order is being born and… the moment of deliverance is actually the most dangerous. So, will we have a more divided, less prosperous and less peaceful world?

“Or on the contrary, can we strengthen multilateralism and the United Nations to meet the challenges of the future, to maintain and strengthen the rules-based international system, and to jointly exploit the opportunities offered by new technologies – including including digital technology, synthetic biology and personalized healthcare, and of course renewable energy?

“If we achieve this, then we can create a new era of peace and prosperity for all.”

He highlighted three areas where there is an urgent need to build resilience.


One is climate change, which remains “the most pressing challenge facing humanity today”, Dr Balakrishnan said.

“We need a sustained and ambitious global response. The continued commitment of all countries to the Paris Agreement and the Glasgow Climate Pact – this is absolutely essential. We also need to step up cooperation in the transition to net zero.”

This will require considerable economic restructuring, technological breakthroughs, investments and behavioral changes, with the UN-led multilateral system essential to bring everyone together to move in the same direction without leaving anyone behind, he said. he declares.

He highlighted Singapore’s steps to raise climate ambition to achieve net-zero emissions “by or around mid-century” and to gradually increase carbon taxes, which were announced at the budget 2022.

A related issue is food security, the threat of which has been exacerbated by climate change, the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, he said. The minister cited a UN report indicating that 828 million people were affected by hunger last year, 46 million more than in 2020 and 150 million more than in 2019.

“We need to reverse this negative trend. First, we need to ensure that food supply chains remain open and running smoothly.

“Second, we must pursue innovation and leverage technology to adapt to new challenges. For example, working together to develop climate-resilient food systems, while developing the necessary precautions for food safety.”

DUBAI/NEW YORK, Sept 22 (Reuters) – Israel has agreed to sell an advanced air defense system to the United Arab Emirates, two sources familiar with the matter said, in the first known deal between them since forging links in 2020.

The deal reinforces how, for some Arab states, resolving the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict has now been eclipsed by national priorities, such as security and the economy.

Israel and the United Arab Emirates allied with the United States share an ultimate fear that Iran will obtain a nuclear weapon, an ambition that Tehran denies.

Israel approved a request from the United Arab Emirates in mid-summer to supply the Gulf state with SPYDER mobile interceptors made by Rafael, two sources said, declining to provide further details due to the sensitive nature of the attack. ‘OK.

A third source said the UAE had acquired Israeli technology capable of countering drone attacks like those that hit Abu Dhabi earlier this year.

Israel’s Defense Ministry and SPYDER manufacturer Rafael declined to comment. The UAE Foreign Ministry had no comment.

It was not immediately clear how many interceptors, which are mounted on vehicles and can defend against short- and long-range threats, would be provided, or if there had been any so far.

Asked whether Israel was supplying the UAE with air defense systems, the chairman of the parliamentary foreign affairs and defense committee, Ram Ben-Barak, told Israel Radio on September 20 that there was a broad cooperation with the UAE, but declined to comment further.


The need to bolster the UAE’s air defense capabilities grew after a series of missile and drone strikes on the Gulf state in January and February. Most of the attacks were intercepted, but one strike killed three civilians in Abu Dhabi.

The strike rattled the rulers of the United Arab Emirates, who have long boasted of their security and stability in a tumultuous region, foreign diplomats said. A terminal under construction at Abu Dhabi airport was also hit, injuring civilian workers, sources briefed on the attacks said.

At least some missiles and drones flew low to evade detection by UAE-built Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Patriot interceptors, the sources said.

According to Rafael, SPYDER can defend large areas against threats such as drones, cruise missiles, attack aircraft, helicopters and bombers, including at low altitudes.

President Isaac Herzog, visiting the UAE in January when an intercepted strike took place, said Israel supported the UAE’s security needs. And last week, Prime Minister Yair Lapid said he was horrified by the attacks and that Israel stood with the United Arab Emirates.

Most of the strikes were claimed by the Iran-aligned Houthi movement, which the United Arab Emirates fought in the war in Yemen as part of the Saudi-led military coalition seeking to restore the ousted government.

The sources said the interceptor deal was reached in mid-summer, around the time the US and Israel were pushing Arab states to link their air defense systems to better defend against the Iranian drone and missile attacks.

The proposal has met with resistance from some Arab states with which Israel has no ties, Reuters reported in July, although an Israeli official said partner countries were synchronizing systems through remote electronic communication.

Anwar Gargash, diplomatic adviser to the president of the United Arab Emirates, told reporters in July that the United Arab Emirates would consider anything that protects the country from drones and missiles as long as it is defensive and does not target a third country.

The Gulf state Bahrain also established ties with Israel in 2020 and later the two signed a security agreement. Israel and the United Arab Emirates signed a free trade agreement this year; Israel’s first with an Arab state. Negotiations with Bahrain started this week.

		Elusive atmospheric wave detected during Tonga volcanic eruption
		Mon, 19 Sep 2022 20:38:06 +0000

The catastrophic eruption of Hunga Tonga-Hunga Haʻapai volcano in 2022 triggered a special atmospheric wave that has escaped detection for the past 85 years. Researchers from the University of Hawaii in ManoaJapan Agency for Marine and Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), and Kyoto University relied on state-of-the-art observational data and computer simulations to discover the existence of Pekeris waves – fluctuations in atmospheric pressure which were theorized in 1937 but whose existence in nature has never been proven until now.

The study was published in the Journal of Atmospheric Sciences.

The eruption in the South Pacific earlier this year triggered what was probably the most powerful explosion the world has seen since the famous 1883 eruption of Mount Krakatau in Indonesia. The rapid release of energy excited pressure waves in the atmosphere that quickly spread around the world.

The atmospheric wave pattern near the eruption was quite complicated, but thousands of miles away the disturbances were caused by an isolated wavefront moving horizontally at over 650 miles per hour as it spread outward. The atmospheric pressure disturbances associated with the initial wavefront have been clearly observed on thousands of barometric records around the world.

“The same behavior was observed after the eruption of Krakatau, and in the early 20th century a physical theory of this wave was developed by the English scientist Horace Lamb,” said Kevin HamiltonProfessor Emeritus of Atmospheric Sciences at uh Manoa School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology. “These movements are now known as Lamb waves. In 1937, the American-Israeli mathematician and geophysicist Chaim Pekeris extended Lamb’s theoretical treatment and concluded that a second-wave solution with a slower horizontal velocity should also be possible. Pekeris tried to find evidence of his slower wave in pressure observations after the Krakatau eruption but failed to produce a convincing case.

Succeed in identifying the wave

Scientists applied a wide range of tools now available, including geostationary satellite observations, computer simulations and extremely dense networks of atmospheric pressure observations to successfully identify the Pekeris wave in the atmosphere after the Tonga eruption.

Lead author Shingo Watanabe, deputy director of the Japan Agency for Marine and Earth Science and Technology‘s Environmental Modeling Research Center, performed computer simulations of the Tonga eruption response.

“When we studied the simulated and computer-observed pulses over the entire Pacific basin, we found that the slower wavefront could be observed over large regions and that its properties matched those predicted by Pekeris he nearly a century ago,” Hamilton said.

4 interesting advantages for companies Sat, 17 Sep 2022 12:30:23 +0000

The transport monitoring system is a useful product. But it pays to know what to do with system data. New fleet management services help you avoid getting lost in metrics and numbers and put them to good use.

They do not replace the surveillance system but complement it and simplify the work of the user. The fleet management system has many advantages. In this article, we will look at the four most important ones.

What is fleet management: a clear picture of it

A fleet management system is a solution used to monitor and protect vehicles, drivers and transported goods. It is a tool that supports the management of the fleet and the optimization of its use and the control of the transport processes carried out in the company, therefore it works successfully in many transport companies.

The proposed system creates the following opportunities:

  • Improved work organization;
  • Careful transport control;
  • driving time monitoring;
  • Fuel consumption control.

The application of this solution allows significant savings to be made. For this reason, it can be recommended to all transport and shipping companies or other companies that own their automotive technology.

Data regarding the current position and speed of the vehicle, as well as other types of additional data such as the fuel level in the tank, the temperature in the refrigerator, the opening or closing of the doors, etc., are stored in the internal memory of the GPS. vehicle controller. Then, using GPRS technology, the information is sent to the monitoring center, where it is subjected to detailed analysis. With the car’s GPS device, you can download data directly from the tachograph (which is available on its output), such as speed, kilometers traveled and engine speed. Data is stored in controller memory.

Car GPS devices installed on vehicles can interact with various devices or controls additionally installed in the vehicle through interfaces. The most commonly used are bus interfaces, smart fuel sensors, analog fuel level sensor interfaces and transponder tank caps.

Several additional devices can be installed on the vehicle device, for example, a panic button, a reader and a driver identification chip, a trailer identification chip, and others.

At the same time, thanks to the development of a special sensor installed on the tanks (having the necessary explosion-proof approvals), the system is successfully used to monitor and control the presence and consumption of fuel.

The implementation of the GPS monitoring system by the fleet provides

  • Efficient management of transport, routing by optimizing traffic lanes, the number of stopovers and empty flights;
  • Improved transport control;
  • Speed ​​control – the possibility of introducing an incentive system for economical and environmentally friendly driving;
  • Verification of fixed points (base, customers, borders, etc.);
  • Control of the area of ​​residence of the vehicle (border, province, city);
  • Checking the correct operation of the car (battery status, temperature, engine speed);
  • Control of the working hours of the drivers, the number of flights actually carried out and, therefore, it is possible to check the correctness of the road maps filled in by the drivers by comparing them with the “Road Report”, which is a collective analysis of the data recorded by the system;
  • Temperature control of cold rooms, gas tanks and semi-trailers;
  • Protection of the car against theft or unauthorized use.

Why do you need fleet management? Main advantages

Let’s take a look at the most important benefits you will enjoy if you use a fleet management system correctly.

  1. A possibility to control all indicators and costs in a single program

It is impractical for waybills to be issued at one place, transport and spare parts to be accounted for at another place, and routes and fuel to be checked at a third. All this takes a lot of time and requires concentration to take into account each indicator.

Fleet management makes life much easier. Everything you need is in one place. Fleet data is collected from different sources (1C, monitoring systems, etc.) in one program. In it, you get the general dynamics of the fleet and can assess costs, conditions, volumes and efficiency. After that, you can start working on pain points, optimizing processes and allocating budget more accurately.

  1. An opportunity to become more competitive

A carrier with a monitoring system is more likely to be contacted than a carrier that does not use it. The customer wants to be sure that the transport will not only be fast but also safe. It is important for customers that the carrier respects the timetable and the conditions of carriage.

The use of fleet monitoring and management systems is also a great advantage for the carrier and for any other business. Modern technologies work very well for the status and competitiveness of a business.

  1. Optimization of Routes and Logistics

Agree that simply controlling the location of the car is no longer interesting. Today’s surveillance systems are not just point-on-the-map and route control. These systems help change the driver’s trajectory in real time and deliberately send the driver on a more successful and considered route.

With the development of telematics, it has become easier for the user to consider various factors: driver discipline behind the wheel, road signs, weather conditions, etc. The driver will no longer drive randomly but will comply with the task of the dispatcher or management.

  1. An opportunity to say “no” to expensive equipment

Almost every company has machines that spend more time in use than at work. If the fleet is small, such equipment is immediately in sight. But companies with large fleets may not realize that certain cars eat up a significant portion of the budget. Each machine must make money for the company. That’s why it’s an important metric to watch.

Thanks to fleet management, you can analyze the load of the machines and the amount of work they have done. Moreover, the feature will help to track the costs of each machine at all times. This will help you understand which gear is easier to sell than keep in your fleet. The superior software solutions provided by the experts at will help you optimize your work and increase the competitiveness of your business.

GPS-based toll system to replace FASTag to ensure seamless payment Sun, 11 Sep 2022 19:18:24 +0000

The government plans to launch a GPS-based toll system in place of FASTag to ensure smooth payment and vehicle movement on national highways, two people familiar with the development said. This move would end the role of toll plazas across the country.

The ambitious plan is being prepared with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) beginning work on further amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act to facilitate the new technology-based toll, the Ministry said. one of the people mentioned above, on condition of anonymity.

Although the technology to support GPS-based tolls is currently available and can be implemented quickly, the actual launch may occur in phases, with freeways and freeways under construction being the first to be approved , the person said.

“MoRTH amended the National Road Charging (Tariff Setting and Collection) Rules 2008, allowing toll charges to be levied based on the distance the vehicle travels on the NH. This will facilitate the introduction of a GPS-based toll system, but before such a thing is introduced a lot of work also needs to be done to upgrade the roads with technical infrastructure for a GPS-based system. GPS. Additionally, an amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act may also be required. So full GPS-based tolling eliminating the need for toll plazas is still a long way off,” the person said.

A query sent to MoRTH went unanswered until press time.

The lack of a proper regulatory framework, including privacy concerns, and the lack of powers to prosecute a vehicle based on its location on a highway, also hinder the rapid implementation of the new system. The FASTag system should therefore continue for a few more years before the deployment of the new toll system.

The recently changed toll charge rules also allowed NHAI or highway concessionaires to retain toll plazas on national highways.

Under GPS-based tolling, vehicles will need to be equipped with a device capable of tracking their movements on the highways. Once such a vehicle enters a toll road, a freeway system would track the vehicle and the toll would be charged based on the distance traveled to the freeway exit point.

As part of the system, users will need to register themselves and their vehicles as well as bank accounts which will be used to transfer toll payments. The system is expected to result in lower toll charges, as vehicles will be charged on the actual distance traveled and not on a flat fee as is currently the case at toll plazas.

The GPS-based system is also offered to collect local residential passes or other concessions available for freeway travel.

Meanwhile, according to official data, FASTag penetration has increased from nearly 16% in 2017-18 to 96.3% in 2021-22. Total tolls collected in 2017-2018 were 21,948 crore including 3,532 crores collected through FASTag. However, in 2021-22, toll collection via FASTags increased sharply to reach 33,274 crore on a total toll collection of 34,535 crores.

FDA approves trial of new type of thermal ablation system to treat ventricular arrhythmias Fri, 09 Sep 2022 22:32:49 +0000

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a clinical trial to assess the safety and effectiveness of a new type of ablation catheter for patients with drug-resistant ventricular tachycardia (VT) conventional antiarrhythmics or standard electrophysiology (EP) ablation procedures.

The single-arm open-label interventional trials will evaluate the Thermedical SERF Thermal Ablation System with the Durablate Catheter. SERF ablation provides a new form of biological heat transfer designed to be more efficient than conventional ablation methods, the vendor said. It delivers energy with a high level of precision to better control the size of the ablation and treat tissue deeper in the heart wall where life-threatening arrhythmias that cause VT are often found.

“We are grateful to the FDA for the rapid approval of this pivotal trial to evaluate our saline enhanced radiofrequency ablation (SERF) system in patients who are out of treatment options for their VT episodes and who suffer from an extremely poor quality of life,” explained Michael Curley, PhD, FHRS, in a report. He is co-founder and CEO of Thermal, and lead author of the first multicenter in-man trial evaluating SERF with the Durablate catheter, published in Circulation: arrhythmia and electrophysiology.[1] “In our recent multicenter trial, 31 of 32 participants experienced immediate elimination of their clinical VT at the end of the procedure, and therapies such as shock or rhythm regulation were reduced by 89% during follow-up. five months in these patients.”

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota will be the first of 25 experimental sites in North America to enroll patients in the larger clinical trial. Douglas Packer, MD, a cardiac electrophysiologist at Mayo Clinic, is the principal investigator. To date, additional sites are planned in Birmingham, Boston, Charleston, Montreal, Nashville, Philadelphia and Quebec. The trial will enroll 154 participants with recurrent, sustained monomorphic VT that is resistant to drug therapy and conventional catheter ablation. Trial participants will undergo a SERF ablation procedure, with follow-up at seven days, one month, three months and six months.
