Vehicular Antenna Concept: Vehicular Hull (Chassis) Pattern Antenna

Hello All,

Recently just watching an episode of "NOVA" on the PBS TV channel titled "Hunting The Hidden Dimension". It was on the mathematical branch of "Fractal Geometry" and its discovery and its current applications. Particularly related to this concept entry on how an Astronomy Professor then student utilized the first fractal geometric antenna. Where in today's applications our cell phones utilize a chip set of a miniature fractal antenna array. So instead of our cell phones having 10 antenna's poking out of them. They use a computer chip that functions as a miniature fractal geometric antenna array.

My concept expands on such a cellular phone idea and inverts it into a macro antenna. Instead of a computer chip in miniature form within a cell phone as the fractal antenna. The antenna array of a future vehicle or naval vessel will have an exterior layered fractal geometric pattern onto it's chassis or hull. That will double as a decentralized antenna communication array package. Instead of a fixed point centralized "Conning Tower" on a military naval vessel be it a ship or submarine. Where if it's knocked out by storm or combat damage, good luck in repairing it out in the field.

In this case if a military naval vessel has a VHPA (Vehicular Hull Pattern Antenna) layered on its exterior ships hull. If any one or multiple points of the hull takes damage be it natural or man made. The remaining operable VHPA fractal pattern communication array can be reconfigured out in the field. Similar to why the "Internet" was created by DARPA. (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Which was during the Cold War if the "Soviet Union" attacked and we had a decentralized communications hub in America. We could survive a nuclear Holocaust and remain a viable force during its aftermath. With a "Vehicular Hull Pattern Antenna" it makes a centralized communications hub on a sea going vessel or a land ground vehicle redundant and decentralized. Thus enabling a continued exchange of data, video, & voice communications package out in the field during natural or man made incidents.

Ground Vehicles, Naval Vessels, Aerial Craft, and potentially astronautical space craft can benefit from a VHPA on board system. The applications are near limitless that can include public transit systems to defense applications on unmanned droned vehicles.

Something to consider I say.

Land Development Concept: "The Village Complex"

Hello All,

Currently in Las Vegas later this year a very upscale luxury land development project by the Las Vegas Strip called "City Center" will be debuting. (www.citycenter.com) Basically it is a complex of 4 hotel / condo mixed use buildings with a shopping mall on ground level. All offered by the resort chain of "Mirage" where each of the four towers will be offered by a different luxury hotel chain.

Now consider my idea concept that takes a land development like that scale above, but doubles it. Not just for the high end upscale citizen, although they will be included as a demographic group. The project will be directly catered towards the "Middle Class" economically speaking. By creating a nearly self-contained indoor "Village Complex" designed Oval like a sports stadium with a hurricane Plexiglas resistant domed skyline. Also the introduction of "Horizontal Elevators" going sideways allowing residents and consumers alike to efficiently travel the scope of this "Village Complex".

The reason why for such a bio-domed community of tomorrow but here today? The word is "Global Warming" temperatures along our equator will only be increasing abnormally with new record highs being a near common experience. Forcing many people indoors into a temperature controlled climate zones. Thus the pre-cursor 20th century indoor mall will give yield to the 21st century indoor village complex. Taking the "Mall of America" in Bloomington, Minnesota to the next generation level. (www.mallofamerica.com)

Picture a 8 tiered indoor Village complex where from bottom to top I'll explain what I envision as the basic floor plans. Below ground level is the power plant and water / sewage treatment facility (Tier 8) following LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Standards. Above the power plant and treatment facilities and at ground level is the indoor "Parking Garage"(Tier 7). At Tier 7 we start getting at the spine backbone of this complex as in the commercial sectors. Tier 6 will include the domestic markets such as: super market, drug store, discount store, banks, office supply store, mass-merchandiser store, auto-parts store, etc... This tier will also include a "Police Sub-Station" if not a dedicated Security Firm contracted to protect the "Village Complex".

At Tier 5 we enter the commercial "Office Spaces" leased to small to medium businesses. Such as: law firms, architects, medical practitioner offices, financial brokerage offices, real estate firms, etc... Tier 4 will include the "Shopping Mall" district with store outlets such as: restaurants, fast food court, boutiques, book stores, department stores, kiosk merchants, video game arcades (LAN), coffee house, movie theaters, etc...

At Tier 3 we begin seeing the residential living units such as the low to high end "Condo" units. Where closest to the middle end condo units will be a "Indoor Public Park" open to all. Yes, you heard me correctly a public park for children and certain athletic sport fields. This "Indoor Public Park" will have a hurricane resistant glass domed ceiling. So natural sunlight can illuminate this public park during day light hours.

At Tier 2 we reach the Luxury Hotel Resort as the Crown Jewel of the "Village Complex". Be they tourists or business travelers coming to enjoy a skyline view of the local city. Similar to those with Condo living units in Tier 3 those in Tier 2 will have access to a "Indoor Public Scenic Park" with a pond that has water fowl be they swans or what have you. With either local horticulture fauna or a botanical garden manicured to near perfection. If the botanical garden is utilized it will need to be cared for by an accredited research horticulturalists. The public indoor scenic park slash gardens will also have access to direct sunlight. Via a similar Plexiglas domed ceiling that is hurricane resistant much like in Tier 3.

The Crown itself will be Tier 1 with the roof top system utilized as a green organic farm. Be it hydroponic or some other green farming practices where the produce cultivated will be consumed on site by the "Village Complex" itself. Any rainfall captured on the roof top areas will be filtered and also utilized locally for the operations of the "Village Complex". Be it for farming, maintenance use, or potable drinking water for the local population. Including various arrays of solar power panels that follow where the sun is shining during the year. Besides that of wind turbine towers pivoting where the roof top winds are strongest during the day.

If the "Village Complex" does take hold as a sustainable green urban living center as a form of social engineering. It can be duplicated nearly anywhere worldwide for the betterment of commerce and especially for humanity via our Earth.

Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

It's that time of the month again for another 3 all original spiritual wisdom proverbs written by your truly.

Enjoy!

------------------------

868) Love unconditional is one heck of a road trip down the lanes of experience. It is never quaint nor for the faint of heart. Since only the courageous are best suited to walk in guidance the halls of eternal Love. Others may be pretenders and speak mighty, but only the fruit of their labors shall echo the highest regard of the truth of ages. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


869) Wonder is the child like place where the eternal fascination of the aged and naive stand on equal ground. Where the truth is its simplest and yet its most profound of those who gaze upon the beauty of wonder.
Wonder is benevolent when it is most humble of the one during an encounter. Wonder transcends time with a gleeful exuberance that only the "Pure of Heart" can most appreciate. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


870) To play is to live in its most simple and yet profound in shaping who we might become once more. Being able to play allows us to act out our unresolved tendencies from the place of the abstract. Playing affords us the luxury to act in a near safe environment and to grow by its outcome for the better or worse. We can learn and be enlightened whilst we're in the center of playing. It is where fascination and wonder meet experience head on in parallel percussion. To play is the act of consecrating the common and the profound in one instance. And, yet keep going without looking back nor having a care of the world at all. It is the abode of the sublime and the stage of the dramatic in all of us. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
