Using rovers has done wonders to open up Mars exploration, but traveling at a rate of about 10 mi (16 km) every four and half years is still a bit limiting, so NASA”s Langley Research Center is looking at expanding that range by equipping future missions with autonomous aerial drones.
Yuneec International has unveiled a new six-rotor UAS called the H520, developed for the commercial and industrial markets. The H520 has been designed with a high visibility hazard orange fuselage and a six-rotor design capable of emergency flight with only five rotors.
G170-V, a VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) fixed-wing UAV, is the latest UAV German-based GerMAP has added to the remote sensing and aerial mapping market. G170-V ideally combines the easiness of manual or automatic vertical take-off and landing procedures of multi-copters with the area coverage efficiency of airplanes.
Strathclyde University has won Europe’s biggest space technology innovation competition for its work on a low-cost early detection system for UAVs.
Iran has unveiled a new home-made drone which is claimed to be capable of jamming the enemies’ communication systems.
Can you chemically “grow” a military drone? It sounds like an idea for a science fiction film, but here in the UK scientists and engineers are spending time and money to see if they can do exactly that.
Leonardo’s recently revealed Osprey 30 lightweight active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar has been selected by the US Navy for integration on the Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Fire Scout unmanned air vehicle.
