Engineers at Draper Laboratory and MIT are working under contract with NASA to develop a statistical model that can identify areas where landslides are most likely to occur so that preparations can be made to better respond to a crisis. CAMBRIDGE, MA (PRWEB) April 26, 2013 Landslides, which can destroy entire communities and are on the rise due to climate change, are more often caused by rainfall accumulated over long periods than single storms. Engineers at Draper Laboratory and MIT are...

Draper Laboratory is designing a microdevice that will provide a more biologically realistic growth environment for human kidney cells in the laboratory. The proof-of-concept "kidney-on-a-chip" could one day give scientists a more accurate platform for drug screening or disease modeling. Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012 Researchers designed a microdevice that will better simulate a biologically realistic growth environment for human kidney cells in the laboratory. The proof-of-concept...

[ Watch the Video ] Draper Laboratory has performed its first free-flight test of Masten Space Systems' "Xombie" rocket using the Guidance Embedded Navigator Integration Environment System (GENIE), reports the Associated Press The rocket is being developed for a NASA program to help explore vertical landing systems for solar system exploration. The Xombie suborbital rocket hovered about 164 feet off the ground, and safely landed back onto the platform. Draper said the testing...

New Space Suits Imitates Gravity
2011-08-31 10:44:18

  NASA is working with Draper Laboratory to create a suit that imitates gravity while in space. The space agency has commissioned work toward a suit for future space missions based on an idea by the Draper Laboratory. The suit aims to stabilize astronauts and allow them to operate more efficiently while performing missions aboard space stations or spacecraft. The suit could help astronauts acclimate to space and avoid body movement coordination-related mistakes in...

Five seniors from Olin College have been working with Draper Laboratory for the past nine months to continue a collaboration to build a capable, autonomous off-road vehicle. The partnership, enabled via the Senior Capstone Program for Engineering program at Olin, began last year with Draper's first SCOPE sponsorship. This year's team has enhanced the John Deere Gator XUV that the previous year's team made capable of being controlled by a computer, to drive itself through complex environments...

Sandia researchers develop tiny laser that reduced power consumption 1,000-fold A matchbook-sized atomic clock 100 times smaller than its commercial predecessors has been created by a team of researchers at Symmetricom Inc. Draper Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories. The portable Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) "” only about 1.5 inches on a side and less than a half-inch in depth "” also requires 100 times less power than its predecessors. Instead of 10 watts, it uses only...
