DOE awards funding to six Argonne battery manufacturing projects

BY CHRISTINA NUNEZ, October 2, 2020

The projects will help bring technologies for safer, more robust batteries from the laboratory to commercial markets.

Six innovative battery manufacturing projects led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory were recently awarded funding through DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). The projects, which span a range of essential components for energy storage, are among 13 battery manufacturing research efforts at national laboratories that earned combined funding of almost $15 million over three years. 


Chicago Is at the Center of a National Push for ‘Quantum Internet’

BY NONA TEPPER, July 24, 2020

The Department of Energy (DOE) just unveiled a plan to develop nationwide quantum internet — and Illinois is at the center of it.


During a press conference at the University of Chicago on Thursday, DOE representatives announced that two state laboratories and a prominent local research institution will play a key role in developing quantum internet for all.


“Decades from now, when we look back to the beginnings of the quantum internet, we’ll be able to say that the original nexus points were here in Chicago — at Fermilab, Argonne and the University of Chicago,” said Nigel Lockyer, director of Fermilab.


COVID-19 is changing key business relationships


No entrepreneur is a stranger to crisis. Whether it shows up as a key partnership falling apart right before a contract is signed or a global economic downturn, crisis is a fundamental part of entrepreneurship—and, in fact, often accelerates the adoption of technology and market innovations. Following the 2000 dot-com crash, the e-commerce, social media, and interactive-web-experience sectors boomed. After the 2008–09 global financial crisis, giants of the gig economy, including Uber and Airbnb, emerged and became unicorns with multibillion-dollar valuations. Analysts are already speculating about what industries and companies will be the winners post-COVID-19. Will telehealth, remote working, online education, even micromobility (transportation for one) become the new norm in a world fearing the next pandemic?


Skyworks Global Opens First Dealership in Brazil

Dr. Marcelo Felippes, Skyworks’ Director of Business Development in South America, after extensive research, selected Aero Store Aviation to be the first Skyworks dealer in Brazil.

Skyworks Global Appoints Distribution Partner for Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia & Singapore

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, U.S.A., May 28, 2020 / -- Skyworks Global Inc. (“Skyworks”), the global leader in gyronautics, announced that it has signed a sales and marketing distribution agreement with One08 Group. The distribution agreement covers the sales territories of Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore for Skyworks’ five seat Hawk 5 aircraft.


The Hawk 5 gyroplane uses a free-spinning rotor to provide lift and an airplane engine for thrust. Utilizing an engine driven pre-rotation system while on the ground, the Hawk 5 is capable of jump take-offs, allowing take-off from almost anywhere. In flight, the unpowered rotor is always in autorotation, so in the unlikely event of an engine failure, the Hawk 5’s rotor would continue to spin providing a normal glidepath, keeping the pilot in complete control. Since it has no transmission or antitorque equipment, the Hawk 5 eliminates the flight risk, periodic maintenance, and lost business days associated with these systems, providing the owner greater safety, reliability, and lower costs. Coupled with the flying simplicity of fixed wing aircraft, the Hawk 5 is a true workhorse.

Skyworks to offer U.S. Army new combat gyrodyne aircraft

By Dylan Malyasov, Jul 14, 2019

U.S. high-performance gyroplanes maker Skyworks in collaboration with Scaled Composites to build a high-speed rotorcraft demonstrator of future combat gyrodyne aircraft.

Skyworks signed a collaboration agreement with Scaled Composites to development new VertiJet gyrodyne aircraft to take part in the U.S. Army’s various Future Vertical Lift (FVL) competitions.

The new combat gyrodyne aircraft will be based on a concept developed under DARPA’s Heliplane program. Skyworks has been developing manned and unmanned vertical lift gyroplane technologies for more than two decades. The company’s website said these advanced sustained autorotative flight technologies enable aircraft to be both runway independent and economical, and yet remain unconstrained by the physics imposed speed, range, and payload limitations of a helicopter.
