At the Ariel University Aerospace and Nano-Satellite Research Center, a multidisciplinary team of scientists and researchers in physics, robotics, mathematics, computers and engineering are working in cooperation with the Israel Aerospace Industries, and putting their heads together to create and develop new ground-breaking Nano and pico-satellite technologies. Bulky conventional satellites are extremely expensive to build, launch and operate, making them affordable only to large governmental agencies. AU’s team is developing innovative optical laser and accurate aiming technologies that enable launching swarms of fist-sized satellites to work in tandem with one another for higher quality and faster data transfer than current radio-wave technologies. This new technology promises to provide a much broader spectrum of satellite communications at a fraction of current costs, for example, enhanced pinpointing applications for emergency rescue teams in remote locations, such as in the Nepal earthquake.
As part of its program to establish a new medical school and its recently opened Institute for Personalized Medicine, Ariel University has now launched a Center for Drug Repurposing (CDR) in partnership with a private Israeli company, Drug Rediscovery Ltd. This is the world’s first academic center for drug re-purposing. Drug re-purposing is the process Continue Reading »
