After the incident on the 11th, I started reviewing some of my earlier research on 3 and 4 rotor VTVL platforms. Something tells me that both teleoperated and autonomous plaforms of this type will have a strong role in the days to come...

    I was able to make some headway on enhancing Zaza's Java map applet this past week. I added much-needed scrollbars allowing proper resizing of the applet window, three zoom levels, and auto-tracking. Each is user-selectable from buttons on a simple toolbar (see screenshot) There is one lingering bug that causes a buffer overflow under certain circumstances, but happens fairly infrequently. I also slapped together a CSS page, and some content pages for a simple user interface.
