Magnetic Signature Identification using Pareto optimization


Christopher Riley, Engineering Manager, Cobham Technical Services Abstract Determining the topology of a naval vessel from its measured magnetic signature is a classic inverse problem – what is the source of the observed response? This paper explores an alternative to classical inverse methods with a technique that is used in design optimization. Pareto optimization is [...]

First low-energy particle accelerator beam created in the US


The first low-energy particle accelerator beam has been created by nuclear astrophysicists underground in the US, the University of Notre Dame reports. The aim of the project, called CASPAR (Compact Accelerator System for Performing Astrophysical Research), is to gain a better understanding about how stars burn and what elements they create while doing so. The [...]

Hyperloop One finishes first phase of testing


Hyperloop One has privately conducted the first tests for its low resistance transport system in full vacuum conditions, Machine Design reports. The tests, which were carried out at low speeds on 12 May, were designed to validate the mag-lev technology and tube vacuum conditions. A bare sled was sent along the company’s DevLoop electromagnetic track, [...]
