Wndsn High Frequency Retroreflective Limited Edition Patch

Wndsn High Frequency Retroreflective Limited Edition Patch

The reflective patch displays the Wndsn High Frequency Research fields. Almost everything that makes our society and economy work is based on a combination of a limited number of fragile technologies. Research has repeatedly shown the crucially weak points of potential failure and catastrophic results when exploited. The project is about researching these and related fields and finding and developing ways to secure and harden systems and assets against exploitation through known, identified as well as obscure security holes and combinations or cascades thereof plus ensuring correct equipment operation. The backing material reflects perpendicular to the observer and is flooding its surroundings, thereby concealing them.

Perpetual Explorer 2x3 3C Patch

Perpetual Explorer 2x3 3C Patch

Between sea and mountain tops, islands and shores, night and day, we continuously explore and overcome natural challenges, navigating using landmarks and Polaris alone. Looking up, we're striving to see the surf above us, icy summits, or the stars. Conversely, looking down, if there is no valley nor water, we need to go on, never ceasing to explore. The patch depicts a range of icy mountain tops, engulfed in perfect Fibonacci-spiraling ocean waves, overseen by the North Star in the clear night sky. Turn clockwise by 90° for the Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea version showing the depth and mystery of the oceans.

Specifications:

  • 3" x 2" (7.5 cm x 5 cm)
  • Turquoise and silver on black

Wndsn Metrology Blackout Patch

Wndsn Metrology Blackout Patch

A logarithmic scale is a nonlinear scale used when the data to be measured covers a large range of values, since the use of the logarithms of the values rather than the actual values reduces a wide range to a more manageable size. It is based on orders of magnitude, rather than a standard linear scale, so each mark on the scale is the previous mark multiplied by a base value. The embedded Wndsn logo symbolizes the measurement, as well as the dependence of the result on the measurement itself. The design celebrates metrology; the science of measurement.

Specifications:

  • 3" x 2" (7.5 cm x 5 cm)
  • Black on black
  • Fully embroidered, rayon thread on nylon base
  • Black hook backing with cover

Wndsn Tree of Life 3C Patch

Wndsn Tree of Life 3C Patch

The concept of a tree of life is a widespread theme in the world's mythologies, related to the concept of sacred tree more generally. The tree of knowledge, connecting to heaven and the underworld, and the tree of life, connecting all forms of creation, are both forms of the world tree or cosmic tree. In Norse cosmology, Yggdrasil is an immense mythical tree that connects the nine worlds. Our rendition, representing the concept of science from myths, is an algorithmically altered Pythagoras tree, based on a plane fractal constructed from squares.

Specifications:

  • Height: 2" (5 cm)
  • Turquoise and white on black
  • Fully embroidered, rayon thread on nylon base
  • Black hook backing with cover

Wndsn Vegvisir - Travel Well Black Patch

Wndsn Vegvisir - Travel Well Black Patch

Icelandic magical staves (sigils) are symbols called Galdrastafur, and are credited with magical effect preserved in various grimoires dating from the 17th century and later. The patch is an accurate (including all the small details that most other designs leave out) square rendition of the "Vegvisir" magical stave that is to guide people through rough weather. Legend has it that If this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known or in unfamiliar surrounds. The word "Vegvisir" is derived from two Icelandic words: veg and visir. Vegur means Road, and Visir stands for the word Guide. Turquoise, the color of power, luck, and protection used in the staves symbolizes the careful charting of the unknown and the tempering of the darkness in the black background.

Specifications:

  • Height: 2" (5 cm)

Wndsn Truchet Tile 3C Patch

Wndsn Truchet Tile 3C Patch

The design features a modified Truchet tile pattern, suitable for tradecraft, marking purposes, and tessellation. In information visualization, Truchet tiles are square tiles filled with patterns that are not rotationally symmetric. When placed within a square tiling of the plane, they can form varied patterns, and the orientation of each tile can be used to visualize information associated with the tile's position within the tiling.

Specifications:

  • Height: 2" (5 cm)
  • Turquoise and white on black
  • Fully embroidered, rayon thread on nylon base
  • Black hook backing with cover

€ 8.50


Wndsn Polaris Explorer 3C Patch

Wndsn Polaris Explorer 3C Patch

Visualizing the Wndsn Expedition Team mission objectives; observe, evaluate, control, the patch prominently features observation of ursae minoris, the little dipper, with Polaris, the north star to be found at the far end of the handle of the ladle. By sighting alongside a quadrant, we are able to evaluate and hence determine our latitude through the angle measured; 30° North. Finally, the steering wheel symbolizes control; navigating towards the destination after charting the course. The white of the stars is picked up in the measuring device and lines of sight providing the necessary clarity against dark instruments. In traditional thought, Turquoise unites earth and sky, it is also the color of light through night-vision equipment and testament to the high tech aspect that is always present but never completely relied upon.

Wndsn High Frequency Turquoise Patch

Wndsn High Frequency Turquoise Patch

An undisturbed high frequency (HF) sine waveform symbolizes waves in the radio spectrum. Visualizing the threat to the radio waves that much of our tech (and hence civilization) depends on is an overlaid, damped sine wave; the result of coupling between an electromagnetic pulse and a target HF wave. The equal number of disturbed and undisturbed waves represents the notion that every wave can be altered. The semi-hidden Wndsn logo hints at the non-public nature of the research scope and findings, its simplified line shape symbolizes energy flowing, the same energy that is running the waves as well as the objective to be protected, hardened, and tested against. The bracket represents the shielding element, its open shape communicates that different wavelengths are taken into account and treated differently; allowed through vs. blocked off.

Wndsn Contemporary Explorer 3C Patch

Wndsn Contemporary Explorer 3C Patch

Visualizing the Wndsn Expedition Team mission objectives; observe, evaluate, control; the patch features the ubiquitous tools that contemporary explorers are using. Observation is symbolized by binoculars. Evaluation of results takes place using the electronic calculator. Finally, the handheld steering device symbolizes control; navigating towards the destination after charting the course. The white of the observed objects is picked up in the measuring devices providing the necessary clarity against dark instruments. Turquoise is the color of night-vision equipment and testament to the high tech aspect that is always present but never completely relied upon. Drone pilots' favorite.

Specifications:

  • Diameter: 2" (5 cm)
  • Black and white on turquoise
  • Fully embroidered, rayon thread on nylon base
  • Black hook backing with cover

Wndsn Maker's Mark Blackout Micro Patch

Wndsn Maker's Mark Blackout Micro Patch

The black Wndsn one-piece toolmark, consisting of the meteorological symbol for strong wind from the north, and the Greek letter upsilon, a heraldic representation of the first born son, itself cut like a blade, is subdued in a black square, depicting the shadows. The blackout theme symbolizes the non-obvious, a sense of humility, the comfort with staying out of the limelight, and the ability to fly under the radar. According to a different genesis, the Wndsn toolmark is a bind rune, the upper part Ansuz; Divine Breath and the lower part Othalan; Inheritance.
