Hypersonic flight and space access involves remarkable challenges and opportunities. The unique SABRE engine will be presented along with novel technologies demonstrated by Reaction Engines, notably very advanced heat exchangers.

IET Lecture: Progress of Shale Gas Exploration and Hydraulic Fracturing in the UK

The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2 Savoy Place, London

Shale gas is vital for UK energy security and yet fracking has become a controversial topic. Eric Vaughan will explain how fracking works, what happens onsite and its environs. Many myths will be dispelled and benefits revealed.

IET Lecture: Thunderbolts and Lightning – Are They Really Frightening?

The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2 Savoy Place, London

Rhys will explain the processes which lead to a lightning strike and the different types of lightning that can exist. He will explain what happens to aircraft when they are hit by lightning and what can be done to protect against damage.

Talk: Cyber Security Monitoring of Digital Web Services using Web Analytics

Bush House Room (SE)2.12, Bush House South East wing, Strand,, London

Most digital services are available to everyone and from anywhere, e.g. University website, online banking, electronic commerce etc. n this research, web analytics is applied for cyber security monitoring to enhanced cyber situational awareness of critical digital web services. A number of intelligence sources such as web logs, browser fingerprints, mobile and tablet fingerprints and endpoint fingerprint are gathered, fused, analysed in real time for enhanced situational awareness for the protection of online web security.
