Text Messages from Submarines using Buoys!

Captains and sailors in submarines under the sea can now text messages on strategic information and personal letters to their loved ones through a 40” long buoy tied to the vessel via the garbage disposal chute by means of long cables running in miles. According to Lockheed Martin, the designer of the system, buoys could also be air dropped to receive messages from submarines through an acoustic messaging system.

Presently mariners have to reach the water level corresponding to the periscope end and send their communication which is dangerous as they are prone to attack near the water surface. The new system ensures safety of sailors and effectiveness and quality of communication. When once the sailors complete texting, buoys could be cut and disconnected from the submarine.

An extension of this type of buoy communication would include underwater robots for sending distress signals related to sunken ship, oil leakage, lost track, diving mishap, etc., in the near future.

BlackBerry's Locate Service Without GPS

blackberry locate service.jpgBlackBerry Locate Service is a new launch by RIM which enables GPS- free location search. You may stay inside your office or home without GPS facility. However your app can locate the land marks, freeways, gas stations, restaurants, cinemas, etc., in your locality. Though there is no high degree of accuracy, the app locates the places of interest to a great extent. The user gets a quick idea about the place of his search. The app is more useful in such cases where exact location details are not important but a rough idea would be sufficient to proceed with the exploration.

Though this technology is not new(getting the location using celltowers), it is heartening to note that RIM has included this app in Blackberry for the benefit of its users. Good going RIM.
