Research led to development into non-cuttable material created metallic-ceramic panels which defeats angle grinders power drill and water jet cutter in the tests performed at the Centre for Applied Science and Technology of the Home Office.
Join us on when we welcome Prof. Julie A. McCann Professor of Computer Systems Imperial College London to explore this and potential solutions to such scenarios and illustrate where the technologies are heading with a future look.
Due to the ready availability of UAVs or drones protecting our airports is becoming increasingly problematic. In the wrong hands they can be easily adapted to carry a range of payloads; from cameras to explosive devices.
A rise in the misuse of drones may not only lead to an increase in anti-social behaviour and disruptive behaviour but an increase in personal injury breaches of national security and the potential for loss of life.
A ground breaking quarter-century Optical Research took us all on a journey from pre-Internet days to the terabit-per-second plus broadband. The lecture will explain the journey through the different aspects of ever evolving optical communication systems and will give us insight into the future of communications and connected systems.
The British Museum holds art work covering more than 4 000 years – from ancient Egyptian artifacts to paintings sculpture and architectural finishes. Testing for what’s real from what’s fake through the structure and composition of materials used to resolve questions on authenticity and preserves it’s assets and legacies.
We are entering the age where environmental concerns are driving the strategic decisions that will determine the future of public and individual transport needs. HydroFlex offers one possibility for future rail travel.
