    Ok for those just now tuning in. This data represents “life expectancy” of the LIVING. It does not represent population drops due to tyranny or disasters. It measured factors that affect every single person. So if you died via gunshot wound at the age of 20, then you are NOT represented in this data. It’s pointless to taint the data with irrelevant information. This info is compiled so that we can see the correlations between wealth, education, food supply, etc… and how lack thereof affects the duration of the average life span over the decades.

    1.8 students, 2.4 professors on child mortality?
    Daymn, all of these are super logical, and getting less than two?

    South Korea and Thailand are EZ – SK is basically Japan 2.0. Similar thing with Malaysia/Russia.
    The only two pretty tough one are Turkey vs Sri Lanka and Thailand vs South Africa, but again you can pretty easily bet new world / asians master race over old world.

    Mao Zedong murdered anyone who he didn't like or looked at him funny. The guy is known for killing 70 million people in his own country according to their own documents. He was no health hero in China

    White population is falling, so Africa will stop getting helped by white people, so their population will also fall.

    Very nice knowledge, thank you. But i have question, if asian, arabic and other country can catch the western very fast, its mean the western grow very slow. Did it will reach point that every country have slower rate to grow ? Or the wester n will be passed by other countries ?

    I'm very wary of him using that $1/$10/$100 log scale. Very, very few people can "see" them for what they really are so it's deceptive to most people.

    Phenomenal. Just show kids this in class & be done with it. Forget social sensitivity training, just make them go to TED conferences like 3 times each semester…

Aerial Rescue Passenger Drone – Cormorant UAV

Published

on

By



Music: The Wolf and the River by Dhruva Aliman Spotify – …The Cormorant is a compact, unmanned, single-engine, VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) aircraft. Internal lift rotors enable the Cormorant to fly inside obstructed (e.g. mountainous, wooded, urban) terrain where helicopters are unable to operate. The Cormorant is innovative due to its internal rotors and significant payload capacity that allows for the evacuation of 2 casualties as well as fast and flexible payload reconfiguration for other missions. It is also ideally suited to special robotic operation, for example via Tele-Presence.

Cormorant Target Markets

Cormorant offers much needed capabilities to emergency responders in routine, day-to-day operations as well as in the most challenging situations such as earthquakes and floods. The ability to quickly deliver water, food and medical supplies directly to affected populations—no matter how isolated—will save lives. During nuclear, biological or chemical emergencies Cormorant offers transformative assessment and response capabilities. Day to day multiple mission capability (electric grids, bridge inspection, agricultural spraying, offshore oil platform support to name a few) makes Cormorant a cost effective addition to any commercial helicopter fleet.

In the civil market, Cormorant also offers all of the benefits of combined heavy payload and unlimited access. Whereas small civilian drones such as quadcopters can only provide “eye in the sky” photographic surveillance or, at best, deliver light packages Cormorant can deliver up to 500 kilos of cargo or equipment in both commercial and emergency response scenarios. Outfitted with remotely controlled mechanical arms, it can also perform useful work for a variety of utility and emergency response missions.

Cormorant Capabilities

Cormorant’s internal rotor design and UA’s patented Fancraft™ technologies enable Cormorant to maneuver with unprecedented precision and safety in even the most constricted areas. Its minimal footprint is only slightly larger than that of a a large delivery van.
By removing the human operator from the loop on most missions, Cormorant can eliminate personnel exposure in hazardous environments.
A single Cormorant is capable of ferrying in excess of 500 Kilograms of useful cargo per each 50 Kilometer radius sortie, thereby delivering approximately 6,000 Kilograms over 24 hours; enough to supply up to 3000 people with food, water and other needed supplies.
Total available cargo volume is 2,640 liters (93 ft^3); 1,540 liters of which are internal (770 liters in each of the main cabin compartments) and an additional 1,100 liters available in an optional belly mounted compartment.
Cormorant can hover in place with high precision and operate in harsh weather and winds of up to 40 knots, a significant improvement over existing helicopters.
The addition of externally mounted utility equipment can enhance the vehicle’s robotic functionality.
Cormorant is designed to the most stringent FAA design requirements for Rotorcraft, resulting in an aircraft with very high safety and reliability.
Cormorant can be optionally equipped with a rocket deployed parachute, that will safely lower the complete vehicle and its payload from almost any height in the case of an unlikely malfunction of its engine or lift rotors.
