Unmanned Systems Technology - Issue 035

Highlights in this issue include an interview with AlarisPro's CEO Anthony Pucciarella and an investigation into the operation of the Kalmar AutoStrad for handling shipping containers at cargo terminals. Our dossiers detail the Wings For Aid MiniFreighter UAS for delivering humanitarian aid and the Teledyne EDR fuel cell. The focus articles dive into the subjects of motor controllers and image sensors. Our insight looks at the emergency services use of unmanned systems and we bring updates from a selection of exhibitors from this years virtual AUVSI Xponential and Intergeo shows. Our digest features the Stone Aerospace Sunfish AUV, plus much more...

Unmanned Systems Technology 035 December/January 2021

  • Intro - Rapid approval of a Covid-19 vaccine shows that a global roll-out of some unmanned systems could safely be speeded up
  • Platform one: Mission-critical info - Autonomous flying base station for 4G LTE comms starts testing, modular neural network accelerators unveiled, Moon rover set for wireless charging from its lander, and more
  • In conversation: Anthony Pucciarella - AlarisPro’s CEO explains how his years in manned aviation led to his company’s predictive maintenance software for UAVs
  • Dossier: Wings For Aid MiniFreighter - Public-private collaboration was key to producing this UAS for delivering humanitarian aid. We report on who did what
  • Focus: Motor controllers - Modern UAV motor controllers are designed and engineered to meet the needs of high-quality craft, and are set to improve further
  • Insight: Emergency services - Unmanned systems are ideal for deployment in a variety of emergencies. Here are some early applications
  • Report: AUVSI Xponential 2020 - Our annual round-up of the products announced at the show, which this year was held virtually
  • Digest: Stone Aerospace Sunfish - Ruggedness and a high level of onboard intelligence were key design factors for this AUV. We explain why
  • Dossier: Teledyne EDR fuel cell - Hydrogen fuel cells are a perfect fit for SWaP-optimised power solutions, and this cell’s innovative reactant circulation system points it firmly at long-haul missions. Here’s how it works
  • In operation: Kalmar AutoStrad - Autonomous straddle carriers for handling shipping containers at cargo terminals are safer and cheaper than manned versions. This system amply demonstrates that
  • Focus: Image sensors - As the unmanned systems industry demands more from image sensors, we report on how their developers are responding with more advanced technologies and materials
  • Report: Intergeo Digital 2020 - This was another industry event that had to be held online this year, but that didn’t stop developers from showcasing their latest geospatial products. Here are some highlights
  • PS: Micro-UAV navigation - A patent awarded last year for a UAV with a sensor suite and navigation might not raise many eyebrows but this system would weigh less than 250 g – and potentially under 50 g
