The modern non-nuclear submarines are more covert than the nuclear ones because of air-independent propulsion systems which are noiseless and help in avoiding detectable noises. Non-nuclear submarines can be virtually silent and easily maneuverable, and this is highly effective for coastal operations and pose a threat to nuclear submarines. The naval sector has researched extensively to increase the underwater endurance of diesel-electric submarines, and the solution to this predicament is in the form of an efficient air-independent propulsion system. This propulsion system helps submarines to remain submerged for a longer duration, without the need for oxygen to recharge the batteries.
The drug discovery has gained pace in the last decade as the healthcare sector has developed rapidly with the aim to improve the life quality and expectancy of the people. Drug discovery is a capital intensive process and a lot of investment is being witnessed in the biologics drug discovery sector. People are looking for alternatives to find the cure of diseases with minimal side-effects, and biologic therapies have been successful in treating chronic inflammatory diseases. The biologic drugs helped the patients by reducing their dependence on healthcare and improving their physical functions to live independently.
The first Coalition for the Advancement of Precision Agriculture (CAPA) Forum was held in Washington D.C on Sept. 18. The Agricultural Retailers Association, along with CropLife America, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers and other organizations worked in support of CAPA to fulfill the aim of educating and informing the regulatory and legislative committees about the applications of precision farming and the technology involved.
Precision farming techniques are a step towards improving the conventional agriculture practices. These result in better yield, proper management of resources and incorporation of advanced technology, thereby finding great applicability in the agricultural industry.
