The goal of the competition is to support exceptionally talented students and to give them the possibility to shorten the scientific career path. Mr. Rami Faraj as a manager of "Innovative systems for safe airdrop DROPs" project will have the opportunity to start earlier his Ph.D. studies at the IPPT PAN from October 2015, i.e. one year before his graduation of Master degree. Currently, Mr. Rami Faraj is a student of Aerospace Engineering at the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering Warsaw University of Technology. In IPPT PAN he works under the supervision of Prof. Jan Holnicki-Szulc, who gladly shares his knowledge and experience, motivating the entire team of the Department of Intelligent Technologies to work creatively. Mr. Rami Faraj is working on the subject of Adaptive Impact Absorption, which is developed at the IPPT PAN by a team of Prof. Holnicki-Szulc, and its use in the development of the real devices and systems.

The goal of the project will be to analyze the operation and assess the feasibility of three inventions reported for patent protection by IPPT PAN in the Polish Patent Office. Within the project, preparation and tests of demonstrators of analyzed systems are planned. These systems will be used for safe transport and cargo discharge from the air using innovative systems dissipating energy of impact. These systems are called in common DROPs what relates to the airdrop, but the scope of their application is much wider. Innovative systems for safe airdrop can be used among others to supply areas dealing with natural disasters, isolated places such as islands and oil rigs at sea, and also as a part of the fast courier systems. Devices and methods of energy of impact dissipation developed within the project can be used also in other applications, both transport and construction. The project will be completed with analysis of the constraints of investigated inventions, attempts of their integration and optimization based on the most promising device and definition of new challenges in the area of discharge of cargo using the concept of Adaptive Impact Absorption.
