Designed by scientists and built by engineers, unmanned land, water and air vehicles are not only fascinating but also extremely useful. Designs from the U.S. and Israel lead the way on this huge and growing market, but Polish constructors are not far behind. Engineers at the Warsaw-based Air Force Institute of Technology (ITWL) have built an unmanned, light observation helicopter that fits into a small suitcase and is instantly ready to fly. The helicopter, called Koliber (Humming Bird), can take off and land vertically and hover in the air.
Bożenna Toczyłowska, Ph.D., from the Building Research Institute in Warsaw, talks to Karolina Olszewska.

The AOS-71 motor glider is the first glider in Poland and one of the first in the world to be equipped with an electric motor. The design is the product of collaboration between two Polish universities, the Rzeszów University of Technology and the Warsaw University of Technology.
Prof. Krzysztof Matyjaszewski talks to Tomasz Rybicki
A Polish chemist working at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the United States, has received a $75,000 award from an international industrial corporation for inventing a cutting-edge polymer synthesis method.
A Polish inventor has built a robotic device that helps people with muscular dystrophy or multiple sclerosis to move their limbs. The device detects subtle electrical impulses in muscles using a technique called electromyography (EMG).
Textiles designed to protect people from electromagnetic fields, static electricity as well as ultraviolet, visible, infrared and microwave radiation are being created in a project by a research consortium led by the Textile Research Institute in the central city of ŁódĽ.
The rate at which chemical processes take place in cells depends on the speed of movement (diffusion) of molecules needed for a given reaction. Using a versatile method developed at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, researchers are now able to predict the diffusion coefficients of all proteins in Escherichia coli bacteria.
Fungi and bacteria target not only living organisms, but also paper and fabrics. They can destroy old manuscripts, prints, books or paintings. Researchers at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow have developed a special kind of antiseptic wrapping paper that prevents this from happening.
As it marks its 35 years in existence, the Space Research Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences aspires to play a significant role in shaping the European Union’s space policy and in raising awareness of space research priorities across the bloc.
