Ufovax Extends Its Intellectual Property Portfolio to Include a Patent Covering the Design of an Optimized Antigen For COVID-19

Ufovax, LLC, (Ufovax), a vaccine biotechnology company based on the Single-component Self-Assembling protein NanoParticle (1c-SApNP) vaccine design and manufacturing platform invented by Associate Professor Jiang Zhu, PhD, of Scripps Research (La Jolla, CA), has extended its intellectual property portfolio to include an exclusive global license to a patent covering the design of an optimized antigen for SARS-CoV-2 (aka “COVID-19”). The patent, entitled Stabilized Coronavirus Spike (S) Protein Immunogens and Related Vaccines, was filed by Scripps Research on June 29th of this year and was allowed by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) on Nov 24, 2020.

Described earlier this year in a submission available on the bioRxiv preprint server, a systematic study of five antigen designs was completed along with evaluation of vaccine response in mice. Using the popular S2P mutation of the Spike alone, the optimized spike antigen design (S2GΔHR2) alone and the

Eyesight Technologies Doubles Design Wins From US OEM

TEL AVIV, Israel, Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Eyesight Technologies, an AI computer vision in-cabin automotive solutions provider, today announced that an existing US OEM has doubled its order, bringing the overall lifetime value to an estimated $30m USD and increasing Eyesight Technologies’ total number of design wins to ten.

The OEM’s order is for the integration of Eyesight Technologies’ Driver Sense driver monitoring solution (DMS) into its vehicles with the start of production (SOP) slated for 2021. Eyesight Technologies’ Driver Sense DMS utilizes AI and computer vision to monitor the driver for signs of distraction and drowsiness behind the wheel to help create a safer driving experience. The expansion of the order reflects the OEM’s trust in the quality, maturity and robustness of Eyesight Technologies’ DMS solution.

“We are extremely proud and honored by these latest design wins,” said David Tolub, CEO of Eyesight Technologies. “The

Boom Supersonic

Amazon Web Services announced on Tuesday that Boom Supersonic is going ‘all-in’ as a cloud-computing customer, which the aviation start-up says will power the design, development and manufacturing of its next-generation jet.

Boom founder and CEO Blake Scholl told CNBC that the deal with AWS represents his company deepening its relationship with Amazon, with Boom expanding its use of cloud-computing to “new high performance instances” that will “further upgrade our ability to run simulations rapidly and inexpensively.”

“We’ve been working with [AWS] behind the scenes for several years, with 53 million compute hours running virtual wind tunnel tests,” Scholl said.

Boom declined to the specify the length or value of the contract it signed with AWS. But the deal represents one of the first public moves by the Aerospace and Satellite Solutions unit that AWS established in June. The unit is

GE Hitachi Hits Milestone for SMR Design

Another small modular reactor (SMR) design is moving closer to commercial operation after achieving a licensing milestone.

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH), which is designing the BWRX-300 SMR, on Dec. 1 said the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued a final safety evaluation report for the first of several licensing topical reports (LTRs) submitted for the SMR. The initial LTR was submitted to the NRC a year ago. GEH said the company is working on a “dramatic simplification” of the BWRX-300’s design.

“Obtaining NRC approval of the specific innovations that simplify the BWRX-300 design is a major milestone in our efforts to license this game-changing technology,” said Jay Wileman, president and CEO of GEH, in a news release. “The BWRX-300 will leverage much of the existing licensing basis of the NRC-certified ESBWR and this LTR will accelerate our commercialization efforts as we remain laser focused on making the first

Hands-on engineering senior design program flourishes this fall

RIT’s Multidisciplinary Senior Design program began last fall with more projects for engineering student teams than expected, despite the pandemic.

From collaborations with other universities and NASA to an anthropologist needing a robotic model of a dinosaur leg, all the projects represent innovative technologies built with sustainable, user-friendly designs.

Any concerns about how the hands-on program would take place during the pandemic were eased as connections with campus, corporate partners, and nonprofit organizations via Zoom meetings increased project communication, said Beth DeBartolo, director of the Multidisciplinary Senior Design Program (MSD).

 What had been primarily an onsite class in the engineering building design space became a “flex class” to adapt to the pandemic environment—access to the design space remained but students

QuantumScape: Searching For The Holy Grail Of Battery Design (NYSE:QS)

EV battery hopeful QuantumScape (QS) recently completed its merger with SPAC company Kensington Capital Acquisition and started trading on the New York stock exchange last Friday. In a shortened trading session after the Thanksgiving holiday, shares were up more than 50% on the day.

QuantumScape is chasing the Holy Grail of lithium battery design, a battery that deposits Lithium directly onto the current collector at the anode and eliminates the need for a layer of graphite.

QuantumScape’s technology

In most rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, lithium ions are removed from the cathode during charging, travel through a liquid electrolyte and a separator and are intercalated into a thin layer of graphite that is coated onto the current collector at the anode.

Graphite is used because the lithium ions fit nicely into the spaces between the layers of a graphite crystal allowing the battery

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus design arrives in shiny silver colorway

 

  • New Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus renders have leaked.
  • The renders contain a number of design cues we’ve seen in earlier leaks.
  • These include the redesigned rear camera array and the punch hole selfie camera.

More alleged renders of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus have broken cover, echoing design cues that were present on previous mockups.

Arriving via a collab between Twitter tipster @Xleaks7 and Italian site Pigtou, the renders feature design elements seen in earlier leaks. The major difference here is the polished silver colorway used. It’s unclear if Samsung is poised to brighten the S20’s current gray livery, or if it’s a choice made by the designers. Either way, it’s pretty hot.

Let’s get into the actual design. The render includes a reworked rear camera array which occupies much of the phone’s top-left corner. There’s not quite enough space to include the LED flash though, so it’s mounted

TDRI Leads to Launch Design Collaboration between Taiwan and Japan for Emergency Kits and Disaster Prevention Teaching Aids

TAIPEI, Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — To Taiwan and Japan, which are both island regions, and Turkey that has just been hit by a severe earthquake, disaster prevention has always been an important and highly regarded issue. Both Taiwan and Japan have extensive experience and professional know-hows in the area of disaster prevention, but the public still finds disaster prevention knowledge difficult and hard to understand. “Although disaster prevention is an important issue, a prevailing problem is that ‘its communication is difficult,'” said Vice Director Hirokazu Nagada of Design and Creative Center Kobe (KIITO).
