  • HOW IT WORKS: Car Transmission (720p)

    This educational video describes how a car transmission works in modern vehicles. In mechanical engineering, a transmission is a mechanical device that uses gears to improve mechanical efficiency, employing the ancient concept of the lever. Its a machine that requires a power source and a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power, automatically or manually. Often the term "transmission" refers simply to the gearbox that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to some other kind of mechanism, such as a differential, which would apply that power to the wheels.

  • US Military vehicle mounted DAGR missile system

    The vehicle mounted direct attack guided rocket system is a great idea for the US military and will be helpful in future conflicts. The Direct Attack Guided Rocket (DAGR) is a weapons system under development by Lockheed Martin. The program goal is to provide a low cost 2.75 inch (70 mm) precision guided rocket which is compatible with existing Hellfire II systems and launchers in service.[1] The system will use components from the existing Hydra 70 rocket, but differs from other upgrades to the Hydra 70 such as APKWS and LOGIR in that it is designed to be plug-and-play compatible with the Hellfire missile and use the M299 Hellfire launcher, increasing the load-out by up to four times.[2] DAGR also offers a lock-on before launch capability that is not compatible with the electronics in exi...

  • Hydrogen Hybrid Conversion For ANY Vehicle - I'm Saving 56% At The Gas Pump!

    This is a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport converted into a hydrogen hybrid by Alex Rivera and how2savefuel.com. Horsepower and torque increased significantly after the conversion - The truck accelerates much more quickly without the engine laboring nearly as much as it used to! Highway MPG improved by 56%, city MPG improved by 35%. The system produces hydrogen ON-DEMAND and it is immediately used by the engine - Hydrogen is NOT stored, so there is no risk of fire or explosion (in the case of a car accident). I'm saving more money at the gas pump than I ever thought possible and I didn't have to go and buy a hybrid to do it! Convert the vehicle you ALREADY own! ANY combustion engine! This is an UNPAID testimonial - I was so impressed with this system, I made this video as a "Thank You!" for Alex ...

Range from Sea Level: Min: 1.5 km Max: 5 km Range from 20,000 feet: 12 km.[5] Motor: Existing Hydra 70 motors. Warhead: M151 warhead with M423 fuze Program status[edit] March 2005 - Program started.[6] February 2006 - 1st flight test.[7] October 2008 - 8th flight test and 1st ever 2.75" guided rocket live warhead flight test.[8] March 2009 - 1st platform flight test - Apache AH-64D Attack Helicopter. July 2009 - 2nd platform flight test - Little Bird AH-6: successfully hit the target in two separate trials.[9] March 2010 - 3rd platform test - Lockheed Martin’s DAGR Guided Rocket Fires Successfully From Kiowa Warrior Helicopter.[10] May 2012 - DAGR hits a truck target moving 25 mph fired from an AH-64D Apache 3.5 km away.[11] September 2012 - DAGR successfully hits stationary targets while launched from ground-based mounts. Two missiles flew 3.5 kilometers and hit the target within one foot of the illuminated laser spot.[12] February 2013 - DAGR is launched from a Lockheed Martin JLTV. It locked onto the laser spot two seconds after launch, flew 5 km (3.1 mi) down range and impacted the target within 1 meter of the laser spot.[13] March 2014 - DAGR completed airworthiness tests from the AH-64D Apache, hitting all 16 targets within 1 meter of the laser spot from of 1.5 to 5.1 km (0.93 to 3.17 mi). Over 40 DAGRs had been fired in total since the start of the program.[14] June 2014 - DAGR and Hellfire II are launched from Lockheed's Long Range Surveillance and Attack Vehicle (LRSAV) turreted weapon system, which allows targeting and employment of missiles from ground platforms. The Hellfire and DAGR missiles hit targets at 6.4 km (4.0 mi) and 3.5 km (2.2 mi) respectively, with both demonstrating lock-on-before-launch and lock-on-after-launch capabilities, and one being designated by an AH-64D Apache helicopter.[15] Export[edit] Following the Royal Jordanian Air Force's purchase of Boeing AH-6 helicopters, Lockheed offered to equip them with DAGRs.[16] The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) is a United States military (specifically U.S. Army, USSOCOM, and U.S. Marine Corps) program to replace the Humvee that is currently in service[2] with a family of more survivable vehicles with greater payload. In particular, the Humvee was not designed to be an armored combat and scout vehicle but has been employed as one, whereas the JLTV will be designed from the ground up for this role. Production is planned for 2015. The U.S. Army planned to buy 60,000 and the U.S. Marine Corps planned for 5,500 vehicles in 2010.[3] The JLTV program is related to, but not the same as, the Future Tactical Truck Systems (FTTS) program. Lessons learned from the FTTS have been fed into the JLTV requirements. The future family of vehicles will comprise five armored versions, ranging from light armored vehicle, infantry fighting vehicles, command post vehicles, reconnaissance vehicles, and armored utility vehicles. There will probably also be an armored personnel carrier and a number of other non-armored versions for other purposes such as ambulances, utility vehicles and general purpose mobility. Such a design could also be used in place of an armored personnel carrier or unarmored trucks. However, the JLTV program was in danger of being outpaced by the rapid development of lightweight MRAPs.[4] It appeared the U.S. Army had reduced its support for the program, since JLTV numbers were omitted from its tactical vehicle strategy published in June 2010.[5][6] However, the U.S. Army clarified that JLTVs are slated to both replace and complement the Humvee.[6][7] On 5 January 2012, TACOM announced that the program had entered the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase;[8] EMD contracts were awarded on 23 August 2012. Planned orders are now 50,000 vehicles for the U.S. Army and 5,000 for the Marines.[9] Type 4-wheeled armored fighting vehicle Place of origin United States of America Production history Designer United States Army
