Unmanned Systems Technology - Issue 030

Highlights in this issue include a conversation with Jonathan Bailey the man responsible for unmanned systems at Thales UK. We have dossiers on the Cellula Robotics Solus-LR UUV with its hydrogen fuel cell powertrain and the ARE series hybrid single-cylinder engine. Our focus articles look at the subjects of thermal imaging cameras and lidar sense and avoid. Our insight takes us into the world of UUVs and we report back from the Commercial UAV Show in London as well as the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas.  We examine the RISE logistics system for BLOS autonomous deliveries and the Global Unmanned Spray System (GUSS) for orchard and vineyard spraying.  All this and more...

Unmanned Systems Technology 030 February/March 2020

  • Intro - Developments in unmanned systems are edging the industry ever-closer to the prospect of remote operations
  • Platform one: Mission-critical info - NASA’s Mars 2020 rover passes a key autonomy test, researchers develop a model to allow UAVs to fly at speed through unknown territory, and much more
  • In conversation: Jonathan Bailey - The man responsible for unmanned systems at Thales UK tells us what he’s learned from working with the technology
  • Dossier: Cellula Robotics Solus-LR - A hydrogen fuel cell powertrain gives this 8.5 m-long UUV a range of up to 2000 km. Here’s how it was developed
  • Focus: Thermal imaging sensors - As infrared camera technology continues to advance, we report on the new applications that are becoming possible
  • Insight: UUVs - The latest underwater craft are promising greater capabilities in marine research, defence and search & rescue
  • Show report: CUAV London 2019 - Our highlights of the products that were on display at this, the sixth show of its kind
  • Digest: Griff 135 - It’s lights, camera, action for this first in a family of heavy-lift multicopters. Here’s what went into designing and building it
  • Dossier: ARE series hybrid - How an opposed-piston design allows this single-cylinder to give multi-copters a major boost in flight times
  • Show report: CUAV Expo 2019 - The latest outing for this show broke its previous exhibitor records, so there was plenty on display, as we report
  • In operation: RISE logistics system - A test of this system has shown that a UAV can conduct a delivery autonomously and beyond line of sight in an urban setting
  • Focus: Lidar sense & avoid - The next generation of Lidar sensors will have longer range and reduced weight and size, lending themselves to applications in the air as well as on the ground
  • In operation: GUSS - We explain how the Global Unmanned Spray System overcame the constraints on autonomy in orchards and vineyards
  • PS: Lifespan of unmanned vehicles - Durability and self-healing are coming to the fore in system designs. Here are some notable examples and research efforts
