Hu. text: A hordszárnyas hajó (vagy szárnyashajó) olyan hajótípus, amely a hajótest vízvonal alatti részén kialakított hidrodinamikai szárnyprofilok segítségével részlegesen kiemelkedve közlekedik a vízben, nagy sebességgel, jellemzően belsőégésű erőforrással (dízelmotorral) hajtva. A kialakítás célja a víz mint sűrű közeg, hajótestre gyakorolt súrlódási ellenállásának csökkentése. A szárnyashajó hordszárnyrendszerének kialakítása miatt, azon felhajtóerő keletkezik. A dinamikus felhajtóerő a határsebesség elérését követően olyan nagy lesz a hordszárnyon, hogy általa a hajótest kiemelkedik a vízből, és a további sebességnöveléssel már csak a hordszárny által keltett víz-közegellenállást kell a hajtásnak legyőznie, ezáltal a hajó még nagyobb vízfelszíni sebességet képes elérni. A szárnyprofilok hasonló kialakításúak a repülőgépeken alkalmazottakhoz, azonban a sűrűbb közeg sajátos örvényadottságai (kavitáció) miatt a vízi szárnyprofilokat nagyobb igénybevételekre kell méretezni, valamint szintén a nagy víz alatti sebességre kialakított hajócsavarokat kell alkalmazni. A hordszárnyas hajók üzemeltetése csak a hordszárnyon való kiemelkedés során elért magasabb sebességtartományokban célszerű, mert a teljesen vízbe merült (kis menetsebességű) hordszárnyas hajó közegellenállása, szárnyainak köszönhetően, közel kétszerese a hagyományos hajókénak, ami megnöveli a tüzelőanyag-fogyasztást. A hordszárny jellemzően merev kialakítású, de léteznek menet közben manuálisan és önműködően mozgatható változatok is.
Angol szakirodalomban hydrofoil-nak nevezik mind az ilyen felszerelésű hajót és magát a többsíkú szárnyrendszert is.

A hordszárnyas hajók jellemzően álló- és folyami, vagy part menti vizeken tudják ezt a hatást előnyösen kihasználni, a tengervizek felszíni hullámzása jelentősen csökkenti ennek hatékonyságát. Az úgynevezett „tengerjáró” hajótestek nagy méretéhez és tömegéhez alkalmazható szárnyrendszerek jelentős teljesítménytöbbletű erőforrásokat igényelnek, nagy sebességüket a nagyobb tengeri hullámok lecsökkentik, illetve a hullámokon való nagy sebességű mozgásuk válik kérdésessé. Ezek a szárnyashajók tengeri üzemeltetésének gazdaságosságát akadályozzák.

A hordszárnyas hajó közegellenállás-csökkentő elveit alkalmazza a SWATH rendszer is (a homlokprofil kis keresztmetszetű), melynél azonban a hajótest katamarán jellegű, jellegéből adódóan tengerjáró. Hasonló elveket alkalmaznak az amerikai haditengerészet Independence osztályánál, amely egy háromtestű (trimarán) hajóosztály, valamint az USA 17 elnevezésű hordszárnyrendszerrel kombinált sport trimaránján is, amely képes a valós szélsebesség 2-2,5-szeresével is haladni.

Hordszárnyas hajókat hadi feladatokra az amerikai haditengerészet is alkalmazott: a USS High Point-ot, a USS Tucumcari-t, a USS Flagstaff-t, valamint a Pegassus osztályt. Szovjet fejlesztésűek voltak a 206-os tervszámú (Sersen osztály), a 206E tervszámú (Mol osztály), a 206M tervszámú (Turja osztály) és a 206MR tervszámú (Matka osztály) szárnyashajók, melyek nagy sebességű (hordszárnyas) torpedónadszádként lettek alkalmazva több szovjetbarát ország haditengerészetében. Az olasz és japán haditengerészetek is üzemeltettek Sparviero osztályú hajóegységeket. A leggyorsabb fegyvertelen hadihajó címet a kanadai királyi haditengerészet, ma már hadrendjéből kivont, HMCS Bras d'Or szárnyashajója tartja: egy 1969-es futáspróbáján elérte a 63 csomós (117 km/h-s) csúcssebességet.

Polgári célra többek között a Boeing gyártott szárnyashajókat (Boeing 929), illetve még napjainkban is a hongkongi TurboJET. A magyar vonatkozású MAHART is üzemeltet szovjet gyártású szárnyashajókat. A Metyeor osztályból (342E) kettőt (Sólyom II és Sólyom III), a Voszhod 2 osztályból (352) hármat (Vöcsök II, Vöcsök III, Vöcsök IV) és a Poleszje osztályból négyet (Bíbic I, Bíbic II, Bíbic III, Bíbic IV). Egy magyar fejlesztésű kísérleti szárnyashajó is készült „Fecske” néven, azonban az 1962–1963 közötti tesztelések során felmerült problémák – magas üzemeltetési költség és a szovjet lobbi – miatt a rendszeresítés és sorozatgyártás elmaradt. Ez a magyar hajó Nadap néven, szárnyak nélkül, a Velencei-tavon közlekedik. ...  wikipedia.org/szarnyashajo
a Sólyom (szárnyashajó)
Hu. text: A Sólyom II és Sólyom III a magyar MAHART cég 10 db-os szárnyashajó flottájának a két legnagyobb, 112 férőhelyes, szovjet-orosz gyártmányú, Metyeor (342E) típusú szárnyashajója.
A két Sólymot 2010 elején újították fel, szereltek bele LCD monitorokat, továbbá légkondicionálóberendezéseket, korszerűsítették a világító és a szellőző rendszert. A Metyeor típusú hajókat Szovjetunióban/Oroszországban, a Nyizsnyij Novgorod-i Krasznoje Szormovo hajógyárban gyártották 1960–1994 között, 2 db még 2003-ban is épült. A MAHART a Sólyom I-et már 1997-ben kivonta. Az orosz utódállamokon kívül még Kína, Magyarország, Szlovákia, Hollandia és még néhány ország alkalmazza. A magyar meteorok Bécs-Pozsony-Belgrád között közlekednek.

Hu. text: A Széchenyi lánchíd (a köznyelvben általában csak Lánchíd) a Buda és Pest közötti állandó összeköttetést biztosító legrégibb, legismertebb híd a Dunán, a magyar főváros egyik jelképe, egyben az első állandó híd a teljes magyarországi Duna-szakaszon. Építését gróf Széchenyi István kezdeményezte és finanszírozását báró Sina György szervezte, a legnagyobb adományt is ő adta a klasszicista stílusban tervezett híd megépítésére. Sina György a nagy befektetésre tekintettel 87 évre kapott hídvám-szedési jogot, ami azonban csak 20 évig tartott, mert az 1867-es kiegyezés után a magyar kormány az 1870. évi XXX. törvénycikk alapján megváltotta a hidat Sina fiától és örökösétől, Sina Simontól. A munkálatok 1839-ben kezdődtek, a kész hidat 1849. november 20-án avatta fel Haynau. Tervezője az angol William Tierney Clark, a kivitelezés irányítója a skót származású Adam Clark volt. Utóbbiról nevezték el az Alagút és a Lánchíd közötti teret (Clark Ádám tér). A hídfők kőoroszlánjait Marschalkó János lőcsei szobrászművész készítette. A híd megépítésének teljes költsége (előmunkálatok, a budai oldalon lévő kincstári épületek megváltása, Pestnek és Budának kifizetett kárpótlás) 6,575 millió aranyforintot tett ki, ebből maga a híd 4,4 millióba, az összköltség kétharmadába került.
A II. világháború végén a visszavonuló német hadsereg, maga mögött felrobbantotta. Az újjáépített, némileg megszélesített hidat első felavatásának 100. évfordulóján nyitották ismét meg. Legutóbb 1986–1988-ban újították fel. A pilonok boltívein lévő régi Kádár-címereket a Szent Koronával kiegészített Kossuth-címerekre 1996-ban cserélték vissza. A hidat a nyári hónapok hétvégéin és bizonyos ünnepi alkalmakkor lezárják a járműforgalom elől, átadva a gyalogosoknak. ...
En. text: The Széchenyi Chain Bridge (Hungarian: Széchenyi lánchíd, Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈseːt͡ʃeːɲi ˈlaːnt͡shiːd]) is a suspension bridge that spans the River Danube between Buda and Pest, the western and eastern sides of Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Designed by the English engineer William Tierney Clark and built by the Scottish engineer Adam Clark, it was the first permanent bridge across the Danube in Hungary. It was opened in 1849.
It is anchored on the Pest side of the river to Széchenyi (formerly Roosevelt) Square, adjacent to the Gresham Palace and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and on the Buda side to Adam Clark Square, near the Zero Kilometre Stone and the lower end of the Castle Hill Funicular, leading to Buda Castle.
The bridge has the name of István Széchenyi, a major supporter of its construction, attached to it, but is most commonly known as the "Chain Bridge". At the time of its construction, it was regarded as one of the modern world's engineering wonders.[citation needed] It has asserted an enormous significance in the country's economic, social and cultural life, much as the Brooklyn Bridge has in New York and United States of America.[citation needed] Its decorations made of cast iron, and its construction, radiating calm dignity and balance, have elevated the Chain Bridge to a high stature in Europe.[citation needed] It became a symbol of advancement, national awakening, and the linkage between East and West.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_Bridge_(Budapest)

They differ from the eagles of Accipitridae, in that falcons kill with their beaks instead of their taloned feet. They have a "tooth" on the side of their beak for this purpose.

Óriás-toronyugrásban a férfiak 27, a nők pedig 20 méterről vetik magukat a mélybe, a FINA a vb-indulás előfeltételeként az idén betöltött 18. életévet jelölte meg. A szabadesés időtartama legalább három másodperc, s a versenyzőknek lábbal kell a vízbe érniük a sérülésveszély miatt. A zuhanás során az ugrók 96 kilométer/órás sebességre is felgyorsulhatnak, így a 6 m mély vízben mentőbúvárok várják őket felkészülve arra az esetre, ha elrontanák a vízbe érkezést.

En. text: Enikő Mihalik (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈɛnikøː ˈmihɒlik]; born 11 May 1987) is a Hungarian modelwho rose to prominence after placing 4th in the Elite Model Look 2002 and is known for her work with Dutch photography team Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Enikő was born in Békéscsaba, Hungary, the capital of the Hungarian Békés County. When she was young, her classmates often teased her about her thin physique, some claiming it was caused by illness. She was discovered by a Valve scout in a shopping mall when she was 15 years old. In 2002, she entered into the Hungarian Elite Modder and won.
With her win, she moved on to the international level of the competition, held in Tunis, Tunisia. She placed 4th, losing to Ana Mihajlovic of Yugoslavia. Her career started on the runway. She debuted at the Chanel haute couture show JUL 2006. She walked for only a few designers each season thereafter, but in the S/S 09 shows, she got her big break. She walked for over 50 designers internationally, including Shiatzy Chen, Givenchy, Blumarine, Moschino, Diane von Furstenberg, and Versace. Mihalik was one of the fresh faces to land in one of the fourteen covers of V magazine fall 2008 issue; the other fresh faces were Anna Selezneva, and Abbey Lee Kershaw. Each cover boasts a head shot of a famous model, either from the new crop of leading models (Agyness Deyn, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik, Daria Werbowy etc.) or the supermodel era (Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova), it was lensed by duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enik%C5%91_Mihalik

Marine radars are X band or S band radars to provide bearing and distance of ships and land targets in vicinity from own ship (radar scanner) for collision avoidance and navigation at sea.
Radar is a vital component for safety at sea and near the shore. Captains need to be able to maneuver their ships within feet in the worst of conditions and to be able to navigate "blind". This means inside a dark room with no visibility they need to safely navigate their way through waters in the worst of weather. Radars are rarely used alone in a marine setting. In commercial ships, they are integrated into a full system of marine instruments including chartplotters, sonar, two-way radio communication devices, and emergency locators (SART).
The integration of these devices is very important as it becomes quite distracting to look at several different screens. Therefore, displays can often overlay charting, radar, sonar into a single system. This gives the captain unprecedented instrumentation to maneuver the ship. With digital backbones, these devices have advanced greatly in the last years. For example, the newer ones have 3D displays that allow you to see above, below and all around the ship, including overlays of satellite imaging.
In port or in harbour, shore-based vessel traffic service radar systems are used to monitor and regulate ship movements in busy waters.
Collision avoidance:
As required by COLREGS, all ships shall maintain a proper radar lookout if it is available on board to obtain early warning of risk of collision. Radar plotting or the ARPA should be used to get the information of movement and the risk of collision (bearing, distance, CPA (closest point of approach), TCPA (time of closest point of approach) of other ships in vicinity.
Navigation:
Marine radar systems can provide very useful radar navigation information for navigators onboard ships. The ship's position could be fixed by the bearing and distance information of a fixed, reliable target on the radar screen.
Radar controls:
Marine radar has performance adjustment controls for brightness and contrast, also manual or automatic adjustment of gain, tuning, sea clutter and rain clutter suppression, and interference reduction. Other common controls consist of range scale, bearing cursor, fix/variable range marker or bearing/distance cursor.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_radar

Вроде есть проект установки судового турбодизеля MAN D2842LE410 в количестве двух штук на теплоход "Метеор-342Э". Характеристики этих дизелей таковы, что при крейсерском режиме (1600 об/мин) достигается экономия топлива в пределах 50 литров в пересчете на один из дизелей, в сравнении с турбодизелем "Звезда М-401". Стоимость проекта 16 миллионов, которых нет в этой судоходной компании. Но опыт Санкт-Петербужцев довольно интересен... Можно было бы обратиться к губернатору с просьбой рассмотреть проект по переоборудованию теплоходов проекта "Метеор-342Э".

Born in Germany, Kissinger was a Jewish refugee who fled the Nazi regime with his family in 1938. He became National Security Advisor in 1969 and later concurrently United States Secretary of State in 1973. For his actions negotiating a ceasefire in Vietnam, Kissinger received the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize under controversial circumstances, with two members of the committee resigning in protest.

Kosygin was born in the city of Saint Petersburg in 1904 to a Russian working-class family. He was conscripted into the labour army during the Russian Civil War, and after the Red Army's demobilisation in 1921, he worked in Siberia as an industrial manager. Kosygin returned to Leningrad in the early 1930s and worked his way up the Soviet hierarchy. During the Great Patriotic War (World War II), Kosygin was a member of the State Defence Committee and was tasked with moving Soviet industry out of territories soon to be overrun by the German Army. He served as Minister of Finance for a year before becoming Minister of Light Industry and later, the Minister of Light and Food Industry. Stalin removed Kosygin from the Politburo one year before his own death in 1953, intentionally weakening Kosygin's position within the Soviet hierarchy. ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexei_Kosygin

His eighteen-year term as General Secretary was second only to that of Joseph Stalin in duration. During Brezhnev's rule, the global influence of the Soviet Union grew dramatically, in part because of the expansion of the Soviet military during this time. His tenure as leader was marked by the beginning of an era of economic and social stagnation in the Soviet Union.  ...

En. text: The Riva Aquarama was a luxury wooden runabout built by Italian yachtbuilder Riva. Production of it and its derivatives (the Lungo, Super, and Special) ran from 1962 until 1996. The hull was based on the Riva Tritone, an earlier model speedboat by Riva, which in turn was inspired by the American mahogany Chris-Craft runabouts. The boat's speed, beauty, and craftsmanship earned it praise as the Ferrari of the boat world. The company was founded by Pietro Riva in 1842, and run by Carlo Riva through its 1969 sale to the American Whittaker Corporation. ...  en.wikipedia.org/Riva_Aquarama

It. text: L'Aquarama è un motoscafo prodotto dal costruttore italiano di imbarcazioni da diporto Riva per oltre un trentennio fino al 1996. Il primo modello di Aquarama fu lanciato nel 1962 dall'ingegnere Carlo Riva, che è una evoluzione funzionale del modello Tritone, un altro motoscafo prodotto da Riva. Il Tritone fu il primo bimotore di successo del cantiere, con la famosa poppa Riva che unisce le superfici di murate, coperta e specchio di poppa in un unico volume scultoreo. Per prestazioni, bellezza e cura artigianale con cui era costruito, l'Aquarama è ancor oggi ritenuto un simbolo di esclusività nella nautica e in un sondaggio di una rivista inglese il suo nome è risultato quello della barca più conosciuta al mondo. La fama deriva sia dall'estetica e dal livello di finitura, che dal tipo di costruzione.

Sankt-Peterburg; IPA: [ˈsankt pʲɪtʲɪrˈburk] is Russia's second-largest city after Moscow, with five million inhabitants in 2012, and an important Russian port on the Baltic Sea. It is politically incorporated as a federal subject (a federal city). Situated on the Neva River, at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea, it was founded by Tsar Peter the Great on May 27 [O.S.16] 1703. In 1914, the name was changed from Saint Petersburg to Petrograd(Russian: Петрогра́д; IPA: [pʲɪtrɐˈgrat]), in 1924 to Leningrad (Russian: Ленингра́д; IPA: [lʲɪnʲɪnˈgrat]), and in 1991 back to Saint Petersburg. Between 1713 and 1728 and in 1732–1918, Saint Petersburg was the capital of imperial Russia. In 1918, the central government bodies moved to Moscow.
Saint Petersburg is one of the modern cities of Russia, as well as its cultural capital. The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Saint Petersburg is home to The Hermitage, one of the largest art museums in the world. Many foreign consulates, international corporations, banks, and businesses have offices in Saint Petersburg.
De. text: Sankt Petersburg (russisch Санкт-Петербург, Sankt-Peterburg; kurz auch St. Petersburg) ist mit fünf Millionen Einwohnern (2012) die nach Moskau zweitgrößte Stadt Russlands und die viertgrößte Europas.
Sankt Petersburg liegt im Nordwesten des Landes an der Mündung der Newa in die Newabucht am Ostende des Finnischen Meerbusens und ist die nördlichste Millionenstadt der Welt. Die Stadt wurde 1703 von Peter dem Großen auf Sumpfgelände nahe dem Meer gegründet, um den Anspruch Russlands auf Zugang zur Ostsee durchzusetzen. Über 200 Jahre lang trug sie den heutigen Namen, von 1914 bis 1924 hieß sie Petrograd (Петроград), und sie wurde von 1924 bis 1991 zu Ehren von Lenin, dem Gründer der Sowjetunion, Leningrad (Ленинград) genannt (die drei Namen sowie den im russischen Alltagssprachgebrauch häufig verwendeten Kurznamen der Stadt, Piter,  anhören?/i).
Die Stadt war vom 18. bis ins 20. Jahrhundert die Hauptstadt des Russischen Kaiserreiches, ist ein europaweit wichtiges Kulturzentrum und beherbergt den wichtigsten russischen Ostseehafen.
Die historische Innenstadt mit 2.300 Palästen, Prunkbauten und Schlössern ist Weltkulturerbeder UNESCO. In dieser Hinsicht wird St. Petersburg weltweit nur noch von Venedigübertroffen.

En. text: A propeller is a type of fan that transmits power by converting rotational motion into thrust. A pressure difference is produced between the forward and rear surfaces of the airfoil-shaped blade, and a fluid (such as air or water) is accelerated behind the blade. Propeller dynamics, like those of aircraft wings, can be modelled by either or both Bernoulli's principle and Newton's third law. A marine propeller of this type is sometimes colloquially known as a screw propeller or screw, however there is a different class of propellers known as cycloidal propellers – they are characterized by the higher propulsive efficiency averaging 0.72 compared to the screw propeller's average of 0.6 and the ability to throw thrust in any direction at any time. Their disadvantages are higher mechanical complexity and higher cost.

A ground effect vehicle (GEV) is a vehicle that is designed to attain sustained flight over a level surface (usually over the sea) by making use of ground effect, the aerodynamic interaction between the wings and the surface. Among the best known are the Soviet ekranoplans, but names like wing-in-ground-effect (WIG), flarecraft, sea skimmer or wing-in-surface-effect ship (WISE) are also used.
In recent years a large number of different GEV types have been developed for both civilian and military use. However, these craft have yet to enter widespread use. The German Tandem Airfoil Flairboats or Skimmerfoils constructed by Gunther Jörg differ in their use of self-stabilising wings.

Although they may look and have related technical characteristics similar to seaplanes, ground effect vehicles are not aircraft, as they are unable to fly freely in the air. They are also dissimilar from hovercraft or hydrofoils, as they do not have any contact with the surface of the water. Ground effect vehicles constitute a completely unique class of transportation. ...   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_effect_vehicle

A hydrofoil is a lifting surface, or foil, that operates in water. They are similar in appearance and purpose to aerofoils used by aeroplanes. Boats that use hydrofoil technology are also simply termed hydrofoils. As a hydrofoil craft gains speed, the hydrofoils lift the boat's hull out of the water, decreasing drag and allowing greater speeds.
Description:
The hydrofoil usually consists of a wing like structure mounted on struts below the hull, or across the keels of a catamaran in a variety of boats (see illustration). As a hydrofoil equipped watercraft increases in speed, the hydrofoil elements below the hull(s) develop enough lift to raise the hull out of the water, which greatly reduces hull drag. This provides a corresponding increase in speed and fuel efficiency.
Wider adoption of hydrofoils is prevented by the increased complexity of building and maintaining them. Hydrofoils are generally prohibitively more expensive than conventional watercraft. However, the design is simple enough that there are many human-powered hydrofoil designs. Amateur experimentation and development of the concept is popular.

Hydrodynamic mechanics:
Since air and water are governed by similar fluid equations—albeit with different levels of viscosity, density, and compressibility—the hydrofoil and airfoil (both types of foil) create lift in identical ways. The foil shape moves smoothly through the water, deflecting the flow downward, which, following the Euler equations, exerts an upward force on the foil. This turning of the water creates higher pressure on the bottom of the foil and reduced pressure on the top. This pressure difference is accompanied by a velocity difference, via Bernoulli's principle, so the resulting flowfield about the foil has a higher average velocity on one side than the other.
When used as a lifting element on a hydrofoil boat, this upward force lifts the body of the vessel, decreasing drag and increasing speed. The lifting force eventually balances with the weight of the craft, reaching a point where the hydrofoil no longer lifts out of the water but remains in equilibrium. Since wave resistance and other impeding forces such as various types of drag (physics) on the hull are eliminated as the hull lifts clear, turbulence and drag act increasingly on the much smaller surface area of the hydrofoil, and decreasingly on the hull, creating a marked increase in speed.

Foil configurations:
Early hydrofoils used V-shaped foils. Hydrofoils of this type are known as "surface-piercing" since portions of the V-shape hydrofoils rise above the water surface when foilborne. Some modern hydrofoils use fully submerged inverted T-shape foils. Fully submerged hydrofoils are less subject to the effects of wave action, and, therefore, more stable at sea and more comfortable for crew and passengers. This type of configuration, however, is not self-stabilizing. The angle of attack on the hydrofoils must be adjusted continuously to changing conditions, a control process performed by sensors, a computer, and active surfaces.

HistoryPrototypes:
Italian inventor Enrico Forlanini began work on hydrofoils in 1898 and used a "ladder" foil system. Forlanini obtained patents in Britain and the United States for his ideas and designs.
Between 1899 and 1901, British boat designer John Thornycroft worked on a series of models with a stepped hull and single bow foil. In 1909 his company built the full scale 22-foot (6.7 m) long boat, Miranda III. Driven by a 60 hp (45 kW) engine, it rode on a bowfoil and flat stern. The subsequent Miranda IV was credited with a speed of 35 kn (65 km/h; 40 mph).
A March 1906 Scientific American article by American hydrofoil pioneer William E. Meacham explained the basic principle of hydrofoils. Alexander Graham Bell considered the invention of the hydroplane a very significant achievement, and after reading the article began to sketch concepts of what is now called a hydrofoil boat. With his chief engineer Casey Baldwin, Bell began hydrofoil experiments in the summer of 1908. Baldwin studied the work of the Italian inventor Enrico Forlanini and began testing models based on those designs, which led to the development of hydrofoil watercraft. During Bell's world tour of 1910–1911, Bell and Baldwin met with Forlanini in Italy, where they rode in his hydrofoil boat over Lake Maggiore. Baldwin described it as being as smooth as flying.
On returning to Bell's large laboratory at his Beinn Bhreagh estate near Baddeck, Nova Scotia, they experimented with a number of designs, culminating in Bell's HD-4. Using Renault engines, a top speed of 87 km/h (47 kn; 54 mph) was achieved, accelerating rapidly, taking waves without difficulty, steering well and showing good stability. Bell's report to the United States Navy permitted him to obtain two 260 kW (350 hp) engines. On 9 September 1919 the HD-4 set a world marine speed record of 114 km/h (62 kn; 71 mph), which stood for two decades. A full-scale replica of the HD-4 is viewable at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site museum in Baddeck, Nova Scotia.
In the early 1950s an English couple built the White Hawk, a jet-powered hydrofoil water craft, in an attempt to beat the absolute water speed record. However, in tests, White Hawk could barely top the record breaking speed of the 1919 HD-4. The designers had faced an engineering phenomenon that limits the top speed of even modern hydrofoils: cavitation disturbs the lift created by the foils as they move through the water at speed above 60 kn (110 km/h; 69 mph), bending the lifting foil.


First passenger boats:
German engineer Hanns von Schertel worked on hydrofoils prior to and during World War II in Germany. After the war, the Russians captured Schertel's team. As Germany was not authorized to build fast boats, Schertel went to Switzerland, where he established the Supramar company. In 1952, Supramar launched the first commercial hydrofoil, PT10 "Freccia d'Oro" (Golden Arrow), in Lake Maggiore, between Switzerland and Italy. The PT10 is of surface-piercing type, it can carry 32 passengers and travel at 35 knots (65 km/h; 40 mph). In 1968, the Bahraini born banker Hussain Najadiacquired the Supramar AG and expanded its operations into Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK, Norway and the US. General Dynamics of the United States became its licensee, and the Pentagon awarded its first R&D naval research project in the field of supercavitation. Hitachi Shipbuilding of Osaka, Japan, was another licensee of Supramar, as well as many leading ship owners and shipyards in the OECD countries.
From 1952 to 1971, Supramar designed many models of hydrofoils: PT20, PT50, PT75, PT100 and PT150. All are of surface-piercing type, except the PT150 combining a surface-piercing foil forward with a fully submerged foil in the aft location. Over 200 of Supramar's design were built, most of them by Rodriquez in Sicily, Italy.
During the same period the Soviet Union experimented extensively with hydrofoils, constructing hydrofoil river boats and ferries with streamlined designs during the cold war period and into the 1980s. Such vessels include the Raketa (1957) type, followed by the larger Meteor type and the smaller Voskhod type. One of the most successful Soviet designer/inventor in this area was Rostislav Alexeyev, who some consider the 'father' of the modern hydrofoil due to his 1950's era high speed hydrofoil designs. Later, circa 1970's, Alexeyev combined his hydrofoil experience with the surface effect principle to create the Ekranoplan.
In 1961, SRI International issued a study on "The Economic Feasibility of Passenger Hydrofoil Craft in US Domestic and Foreign Commerce".Commercial use of hydrofoils in the US first appeared in 1961 when two commuter vessels were commissioned by Harry Gale Nye, Jr.'s North American Hydrofoils to service the route from Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey to the financial district of Lower Manhattan.

Modern passenger boats:
Soviet-built Voskhods are one of the most successful passenger hydrofoil designs. Manufactured in Russia and Ukraine, they are in service in more than 20 countries. The most recent model, Voskhod-2M FFF, also known as Eurofoil, was built in Feodosiya for the Dutch public transport operator Connexxion:
The Boeing 929 is widely used in Asia for passenger services between the many islands of Japan, between Hong Kong and Macau and on the Korean peninsula.

Current operators of hydrofoils include:
  • TurboJET service, which speeds passengers across the Pearl River Delta between Hong Kong and Macau in less than an hour, with an average speed of 45 knots (83 km/h), mainly using Boeing's Jetfoil. Also services Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Kowloon. Operated by Shun Tak-China Travel Ship Management Limited.
  • Voskhod and Polesye service between Tulcea and Sulina on the Danube.
  • Meteor and Polesye service in Poland between Szczecin and Świnoujście.
  • Cometa service between Nizhneangarsk and Irkutsk on the Lake Baikal.
  • Cometa service between Vladivostok and Slavyanka.
  • Polesye service between Mozyr and Turov on the Pripyat River (Belarus).
  • Meteor service between Saint Petersburg, Russia and the Peterhof Palace, a summer palace of Russian tsars.
  • Meteor service between Saint Petersburg, Russia and the Kronstadt, a strongly fortified Russian seaport town, located on Kotlin Island, near the head of the Gulf of Finland. It lies thirty kilometers west of Saint Petersburg. Since 2012 replaced by a catamaran Mercury.
  • Meteor, Raketa and Voskhod hydrofoil types operate all over Volga, Don and Kama Rivers in Russia. Also the Lena River and Amur River.
  • Meteor hydrofoils are operated by a number of tour operators in Croatia, mostly for packaged tours, but there are also some scheduled services to islands in Adriatic.
  • Hydrofoils are regularly operated on the three major Italian lakes by branches of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport: Navigazione Lago Maggiore services routes on Lake Maggiorebetween Locarno and Arona, Navigazione Lago di Como services routes on Lake Como, and Navigazione Lago di Garda services routes on Lake Garda. Three units of the Rodriquez RHS150 type operate on each lake, for a total of nine hydrofoils. Navigazione Lago di Como still operates the last Rodriquez RHS70 in active service in Italy.
  • Former Russian hydrofoils are used in southern Italy for connection with islands of Lazio and Campania. SNAV has five RHS200, RHS160 and RHS150 used in the connections between Naplesand the islands of Capri and Ischia.
  • A regular hydrofoil service runs from Istanbul to Yalova.
  • Hellenic Seaways operate their Flying Dolphins service over many routes in the Aegean, between the Cyclades, Saronic Gulf islands such as Aegina and Poros, and Athens.
  • Meteor (2), Polesye (4) and Voskhod (3) hydrofoil types operate in Hungary. MAHART PassNave Ltd. operates scheduled hydrofoil liners between Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna, inland liners between Budapest and the Danube Bend, and theme cruises to Komárom, Solt, Kalocsa and Mohács.
  • "Voskhod" Flying Dolphin services are currently operated by Joy Cruises between Corfu and Paxos. They run from Corfu Port to Gaios using two hydrofoils: Ilida and Ilida II.
  • Russian hydrofoils of the Kometa type operated on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast connecting Varna, Nesebar, Burgas, Sozopol, Primorsko, and Tsarevo, and Raketa and Meteor models served the Bulgarian Danube ports between Rousse and Vidin. Both services were discontinued in the 1990s. In 2011 the service reopened between Varna, Nesebar, Burgas and Sozopol, operated by Bulgarian Hydrofoils Ltd.
  • Vietnamese Greenline Company operates hourly shuttle service between Ho Chi Minh city, Vung Tau and Con Dao island. Hydrofoil lines using the Russian-built Meteor type also connect Hai Phong, Ha Long and Mong Cai in North Vietnam, Phan Thiet and Phu Quy Island and between Rach Gia and Phu Quoc Island in the South.
  • The service between Busan, South Korea and Fukuoka, Japan is operated by two companies. Japanese JR Kyūshū Jet Ferry operates Beetle five times a day. Korean Miraejet operates Kobeethree to four times a day. All of their fleets are Boeing 929.
  • As of February 2008, all of the commercial lines in Japan use Boeing 929. The routes include:
  • Sado Kisen operates the route between Sado and Niigata.
  • Tōkai Kisen operates Seven Island, running between Tokyo and Izu Islands, via Tateyama or Yokosuka. The destinations include Izu Ōshima, Toshima, Niijima, Shikinejima, and Kōzushima. The same ship also liks Atami and Izu Ōshima.
  • Kyūshū Yūsen operates the route between Fukuoka, Iki, and the two ports of Tsushima.
  • Kyūshū Shōsen operates the route between Nagasaki and the two of Gotō Islands, namely Fukuejima and Nakadōrijima.
  • Kagoshima Shōsen and Cosmo Line operate the various routes between Kagoshima and Tanegashima or Yakushima.
  • In 2012, Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) in Hong Kong leased a 12-meter HAWC (Hydrofoil Assisted Water Craft), a catamaran, to patrol the Geo Park, a UNESCO Sanctioned Marine Park in the Sai Kung areas off Hong Kong.

  • Discontinued operations:
    - Until 31 December 2013, Fast Flying Ferries operated by Connexxion provided a regular public transport service over the North Sea Canalbetween Amsterdam Central Station and Velsen-Zuid in the Netherlands, using Voskhod 2M hydrofoils. It was stopped due to a new speed limit.
    - Between 1981 and 1990, "Transmediterranea" used to operate a service of hydrofoils connecting Ceuta and Algeciras in the Strait of Gibraltar. The crossing took half an hour, in comparison to the hour and a half of conventional ferries. Due to the common extreme winds and storms that take place in winter in the Strait of Gibraltar, the service was substituted in 1990 by catamarans, which were also able to carry cars. At the peak of the year, in summer, there was a service every half an hour in each direction. This high-speed connection had a big impact on the development of Ceuta, facilitating one-day business trips to mainland Spain.
    - Between 1964 and 1991 the Sydney hydrofoils operated on Sydney Harbour between Circular Quay and Manly.
    - During 70s and 80s there were frequent services between Belgrade and Tekija in Đerdap gorge. The distance 0f 220 km (120 nmi; 140 mi) was covered in 3 hours and 30 minutes downstream and 4 hours upstream. See also the history of Condor Ferries, which operated six hydrofoil ferries over a 29-year period between the Channel Islands, south coast of England and Saint-Malo.  ...

En. text: A pump-jet, hydrojet, or water jet is a marine system that creates a jet of water for propulsion. The mechanical arrangement may be a ducted propeller (axial-flow pump), a centrifugal pump, or a mixed flow pump which is a combination of both centrifugal and axial designs. The design also incorporates an intake to provide water to the pump and a nozzle to direct the flow of water out of the pump.
Design:

This image illustrates the workings of a reversing bucket. 1: Forward thrust, reversing bucket disengaged 2: Reverse thrust, reversing bucket pushes the thrust flow backwards

Forward, back, side & turn by pump-jet
A pump-jet works by having an intake (usually at the bottom of the hull) that allows water to pass underneath the vessel into the engines. Water enters the pump through this inlet. The pump can be of a centrifugal design for high speeds, or an axial flow pump for low to medium speeds. The water pressure inside the inlet is increased by the pump and forced backwards through a nozzle. With the use of a reversing bucket, reverse thrust can also be achieved for faring backwards, quickly and without the need to change gear or adjust engine thrust. The reversing bucket can also be used to help slow the ship down when braking. This feature is the main reason pump jets are so maneuverable.

The nozzle also provides the steering of the pump-jets. Plates, similar to rudders, can be attached to the nozzle in order to redirect the water flow port and starboard. In a way, this is similar to the principles of air thrust vectoring, a technique which has long been used in launch vehicles (rockets and missiles) then later in military jet-powered aircraft. This provides pumpjet-powered ships with superior agility at sea. Another advantage is that when faring backwards by using the reversing bucket, steering is not inverted, as opposed to propeller-powered ships.  ...

Су́дно на подво́дных кры́льях (СПК) — тип скоростного судна с динамическимпринципом поддержания, у которого под корпусом расположены подводные крылья
Описание:
На стоянке и при следовании с малой скоростью судно на подводных крыльях удерживается на воде за счёт силы Архимеда, как и обыкновенное водоизмещающеесудно. На высокой скорости за счёт создаваемой этими крыльями подъёмной силысудно поднимается над водой. При этом значительно уменьшается площадь контакта с водой, и, следовательно гидродинамическое и лобовое сопротивление воды, что позволяет развивать более высокую скорость.
Для СПК экономически целесообразная скорость движения ограничена величиной около 100 км/ч (в современных СПК военного назначения скорость ограничена 180 км/ч). Такое ограничение вызвано проблемой кавитации подводного крыла (кипение воды вследствие понижения давления в зоне обтекания крыла), которая резко снижает его гидродинамические характеристики. И хотя на созданных под руководством Р. Е. Алексеева судах на малопогруженных подводных крыльях удалось достичь скоростей до 140 км/ч при бескавитационном обтекании крыла, СПК оказались малоперспективными для дальнейшего повышения скорости.  ... https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPK

В Советском Союзе «Ракета», первое пассажирское судно на подводных крыльях, вступило в эксплуатацию в 1957 году.
С конца 1950-х годов начался серийный выпуск пассажирских судов на подводных крыльях «Ракета», «Метеор», «Комета» и «Беларусь».
В 1970-е — 1980-е годы последовали суда «Восход», «Полесье», «Колхида», «Циклон», «Ласточка».
В единичных экземплярах в 1960-е годы были построены экспериментальные СПК «Стрела-1» (первое в Советском Союзе морское пассажирское СПК, 1961), «Стрела-2» (1962), «Стрела-3» (1963), «Буревестник» (1964), «Чайка», «Спутник» (1961), «Вихрь», СПК с автоматически управляемыми подводными крыльями проекта 1233 «Тайфун» в пассажирском варианте (1969).
Для служб судового надзора и спасательных станций в СССР выпускались катера на подводных крыльях «Волга» и «Москва».
Строились в Советском Союзе и суда на подводных крыльях военного назначения.
В начале 1950-х годов 8 торпедных катеров проекта К123К были оборудованы носовыми подводными крыльями конструкции Р. Е. Алексеева.
В 1956 году на феодосийском судостроительном заводе «Море» построен более совершенный торпедный катер проекта 184 с носовым подводным крылом.
В 1963—1967 годах построена серия из 16 сторожевых катеров на подводных крыльях проекта 125А.
С 1971 по 1976 год для ВМФ СССР построено 24 торпедных катера проекта 206-М «Шторм».
Также с 1978 по 1985 год на Владивостокском ССЗ по заказу правительств Вьетнама, Кубы, Эфиопии и других стран построили 16 катеров по проекту 206МЭ, итого для Вьетнама было отправлено 5 катеров, для Камбоджи и Эфиопии — 2, для Кубы — 9 и ещё одно судно для Сейшельских островов.
С 1976 по 1983 год на Средне-Невском ССЗ (пос. Понтонный около Ленинграда) для ВМФ СССР было построено 11 ракетных катеров проекта 206МР «Вихрь».
Серия из 12 пограничных катеров проекта 133 «Антарес».
В 1977 году в Ленинграде построен ракетный катер на подводных крыльях проекта 1240 «Ураган».
В 1977 году опытный МПК «Александр Кунахович» проекта 1141.
Серия из 3-х МПК проекта 1145.1 «Сокол» (1987—199?).

Большинство советских судов на подводных крыльях были разработаны под руководством выдающегося инженера Ростислава Алексеева. Несмотря на то, что в СССР производство СПК было развёрнуто позже всех, их производство в СССР было наиболее массовым, в частности, Boeing Marine Systems сумел построить около 40 СПК, швейцарский Supramar — около 150, а СССР — более 1300. Советские пассажирские СПК стали важным экспортным товаром, их покупали по всему миру, журнал «Популярная механика» высказал мнение, что в современном мире при слове «суда на подводных крыльях» (англ. Hydrofoil Boats) в первую очередь представляют модели советского производства  ...

En. text: Raketa (Russian: Раке́та, Rocket) was the first type of hydrofoil boats commercially produced in the Soviet Union. They were manufactured from 1957 until the early 1970s. The chief designer was Rostislav Alexeyev and the project 340 vessels had been planned already in the late 1940s.
The first model, Raketa-1, was built by Krasnoye Sormovo (Красное Сормово) shipbuilding plant in Sormovo, Nizhny Novgorod (Нижний Новгород). On its maiden voyage, on 25 August 1957, it carried 30 passengers from Nizhny Novgorod to Kazan(420 km) in seven hours.
Raketa boats were soon in wide commercial service on the Volga River and elsewhere in the Soviet Union. To this day, the name is often used generically in Russian for all hydrofoil river boats. Later designs include the Meteor and Kometa types, among many others.
There were several versions of project 340 vessels: project 340 (проект 340), project 340E (проект 340Э) and project 340ME (проект 340МЕ).  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raketa_(hydrofoil)

The Danube (/ˈdænjuːb/ DAN-ewb, known by various names in other languages) is Europe's second-longest river, after the Volga River. It is located in Central and Eastern Europe.
The Danube was once a long-standing frontier of the Roman Empire, and today flows through 10 countries, more than any other river in the world. Originating in Germany, the Danube flows southeast for 2,860 km (1,780 mi), passing through or touching the border of Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine before emptying into the Black Sea. Its drainage basin extends into nine more countries. The Danube river basin is the most biodiverse region in Europe, and is home to hundreds of fish species, such as pike, zander, huchen, wels catfish, burbot and tench. It is also home to a large diversity of carp, sturgeon, as well as salmon and trout. A few species of Euryhaline fish, such as European seabass, mullet, and eel, inhabit the Danube delta and the lower portion of the river.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danube

Hu. text: A Duna a második leghosszabb folyam Európában (a Volga után). Németországban, a Fekete-erdőben ered két kis patakocska, a Breg és a Brigach összefolyásával Donaueschingennél, és innen délkeleti irányban 2850 kilométert tesz meg a Fekete-tengerig. Magyarország egész területe e folyam vízgyűjtőjén terül el, itteni főágának hossza 417 km, ezért az ország vízrajzának meghatározó alkotóeleme.
A folyó kialakulása a pliocén korban kezdődött el. A pliocén végén jutott el a Duna a Kisalföldig, ekkor a mai nyugat–kelet irány helyett észak–dél irányban folyt itt. Csak a pleisztocén korban alakult ki a kisalföldi szakasza. A folyó legfiatalabb része a Dobrudzsanyugati oldalán található dél–észak irányú folyása, amely pusztán a pleisztocén kor végén jött létre.
Napjainkban fontos nemzetközi hajóút. A németországi Rajna–Majna–Duna-csatorna 1992-es megépítése óta részét képezi annak a 3500 km-es transzeurópai vízi útnak, amely az Északi-tenger melletti Rotterdamtól a Fekete-tenger melletti Sulináig ér. A Dunán szállított áruk össztömege 1987-ben elérte a 100 millió tonnát.
A 20. században a folyam felső szakaszán vízlépcsők sorát építették ki, ami megváltoztatta a folyó természetes vízjárását és gyakorlatilag megszüntette a hordalék alpi utánpótlását. A rendszer utolsó tagja a Szlovákiában felépített bősi vízlépcső. A Dunakanyar fölötti szakasz vízszintje folyamatosan csökken, ennek következtében pusztulnak a part menti élőhelyek. A legnagyobb veszély a Duna–Ipoly Nemzeti Park ártéri keményfaligeteit fenyegeti.
A Duna a világ „legnemzetközibb” folyója; 10 országon halad át, vízgyűjtő területe pedig 7 további országot érint. Több jelentős település is emelkedik a partjain, köztük négy jelenlegi főváros: Bécs, Pozsony, Budapest és Belgrád. A térség kulturális öröksége és természeti adottságai sok turistát vonzanak.  ...  https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duna

Ru.text: «Спу́тник-1» — первый искусственный спутник Земли, советский космический аппарат, запущенный на орбиту 4 октября 1957 года. Кодовое обозначение спутника — «ПС-1»(«Простейший Спутник-1»). Запуск осуществился с 5-го научно-исследовательского полигона Министерства обороны СССР «Тюра-Там» (получившего впоследствии открытое наименование космодром «Байконур») на ракете-носителе «Спутник», созданной на базе межконтинентальной баллистической ракеты «Р-7».
Над созданием искусственного спутника Земли, во главе с основоположником практической космонавтики С. П. Королёвым, работали учёные М. В. Келдыш, М. К. Тихонравов, Н. С. Лидоренко, Г. Ю. Максимов, В. И. Лапко, Б. С. Чекунов, А. В. Бухтияров и многие другие.
Дата запуска «Спутника-1» является началом космической эры человечества, а в России ежегодно отмечается как памятный день Космических войск.
В честь первого искусственного спутника Земли названа равнина на поверхности Плутона.

En. text: The gadfly petrels are seabirds in the bird order Procellariiformes. The gadfly petrels are named for their speedy weaving flight, as if evading horseflies. The flight action is also reflected in the genus name Pterodroma, from Ancient Greek pteron, "wing" and dromos, "runner".
These medium to large petrels feed on food items picked from the ocean surface.
The short, sturdy bills of the Pterodroma species in this group, about 35 altogether, are adapted for soft prey taken at the surface; they have twisted intestines for digesting marine animals which have unusual biochemistries.
Their complex wing and face marking are probably for interspecific recognition.
These birds nest in colonies on islands and are pelagic when not breeding. One white egg is laid usually in a burrow or on open ground. They are nocturnal at the breeding colonies.
While generally wide-ranging, most Pterodroma species are confined to a single ocean basin (e.g. Atlantic), and vagrancy is not as common amongst Pterodromas as it is in some other seabird species (c.f. the Storm-Petrels Hydrobatidae).űú

Ru. text: Тайфу́нники (лат. Pterodroma) — род морских птиц из семейства буревестниковых (Procellariidae). Они обитают в открытом море и распространены во всех океанах. Характерными отличиями являются крючковатый на кончике клюв, длинные крылья и короткий хвост. Максимальный размах крыльев тайфунников составляет 85 см.
Тайфунники гнездятся колониями на прибрежных скалах, откладывая одно белое яйцо и насиживая его в ямке либо на открытой земле. Во время брачного периода ведут ночной образ жизни. Вне брачного периода эти птицы проводят всё время в открытом море и в состоянии приспосабливаться к самым сложным погодным условиям. Их пищей является небольшая рыба и беспозвоночные морские животные, которые обитают у поверхности воды.
Бермудский тайфунник (Pterodroma cahow) является одной из самых редких птиц в мире. В XVII веке этот вид почти исчез, так как столкнулся в своём ареале вокруг Бермудских островов с новыми завезёнными хищниками. Благодаря защитным мерам, его популяция на сегодняшний день несколько возросла.

Hu .text: A Quicksilver Lasztocska típusú (03525 tervszámú), szovjet gyártmányú hordszárnyas hajó. Jelenleg a Duna leggyorsabb hajója. Napjainkban nem üzemel, a hajó az Újpesti kikötőbentalálható.
1986-ban gyártotta a gorkiji Krasznoje Szormovo hajógyár. Az 1980-as évek második felében került Magyarországra, a Mahart tulajdonába. Ekkor menetrendszerűen nem közlekedett. 2006-ban a PannonWings Kft. tulajdonába került, majd 2009. május 8-tól a MAHART PassNave tulajdonába került. 2008-tól rövid ideig közlekedett. Napjainkban menetrendszerűen nem közlekedik, az utóbbi években a drága üzemeltetés miatt szárazra kiemelve tárolják.
Személyzete négy fő, 77 utast szállíthat. Holtvízi maximális sebessége eléri az 55 csomót (102 km/h-t), ezzel ez a Duna leggyorsabb hajója.  ... https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quicksilver_(haj%C3%B3)

Radar is an object-detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, angle, or velocity of objects. It can be used to detect aircraft, ships, spacecraft, guided missiles, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain. A radar system consists of a transmitter producing electromagnetic waves in the radio or microwaves domain, a transmitting antenna, a receiving antenna (often the same antenna is used for transmitting and receiving) and a receiverand processor to determine properties of the object(s). Radio waves (pulsed or continuous) from the transmitter reflect off the object and return to the receiver, giving information about the object's location and speed.

Radar was developed secretly for military use by several nations in the period before and during World War II. The term RADAR was coined in 1940 by the United States Navy as an acronym for RAdio Detection And Ranging or RAdio Direction And Ranging. The term radar has since entered Englishand other languages as a common noun, losing all capitalization.

The modern uses of radar are highly diverse, including air and terrestrial traffic control, radar astronomy, air-defence systems, antimissile systems, marine radars to locate landmarks and other ships, aircraft anticollision systems, ocean surveillance systems, outer space surveillance and rendezvous systems, meteorological precipitation monitoring, altimetry and flight control systems, guided missile target locating systems, ground-penetrating radar for geological observations, and range-controlled radar for public health surveillance.[5] High tech radar systems are associated with digital signal processing, machine learning and are capable of extracting useful information from very high noise levels.

Other systems similar to radar make use of other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. One example is "lidar", which uses predominantly infrared light from lasers rather than radio waves.  ...

It is common through temperate Eurasia.

A bíbic hangutánzó szó, mint az számos nyelvben így van. Angolul: peewit; hollandul: kievit; németül: Kiebitz (ejtsd: kíbic). A német szó a magyar képzésére is hatással lehetett. A Magyar Madártani és Természetvédelmi Egyesület 2001-ben megérdemelten „Az év madarává” választotta, hiszen a bíbic igen kedvelt madár Magyarországon, számuk mégis csökken. Az okokat lásd alább.  ...

The Boeing Model 307 Stratoliner was the first commercial transport aircraft to enter service with a pressurized cabin. This feature allowed the aircraft to cruise at an altitude of 20,000 ft (6,000 m), well above many weather disturbances. The pressure differential was 2.5 psi (17 kPa), so at 14,700 ft (4,480 m) the cabin air pressure was equivalent to an altitude of 8,000 ft (2,440 m). The Model 307 had capacity for a crew of six and 33 passengers. The cabin was nearly 12 ft (3.6 m) across. It was the first land-based aircraft to include a flight engineer as a crew member (several flying boats had included a flight engineer position earlier). In addition to its civilian service it was also flown as the Boeing C-75 Stratoliner by the United States Army Air Forces, who used it as a long-range cargolift aircraft.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_307_Stratoliner

G.I. Joe is a line of action figures produced and owned by the toy company Hasbro. The initial product offering represented four of the branches of the U.S. armed forces with the Action Soldier (U.S. Army), Action Sailor (U.S. Navy), Action Pilot (Air Force), Action Marine (Marine Corps) and later on, the Action Nurse. The name derived from the usage of "G.I. Joe" for the generic U.S. soldier, itself derived from the more general term "G.I.". The development of G.I. Joe led to the coining of the term "action figure". G.I. Joe's appeal to children has made it an American icon among toys.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G.I._Joe
