Unmanned Systems Technology 042 February/March 2022

  • Intro - The advent of ocean-going autonomous craft is bringing developments in embedded computing and safety-critical code
  • Platform one: Mission-critical info - A positioning system that fuses data from a range of sensors and GNSS satellites, single-chip controller for Level 4 driverless cars, a UUV propeller that works down to 6 km, and much more
  • In conversation: Kevin Bean - The technical and operations VP of Stratospheric Platforms discusses his work on developing a high-altitude UAV to provide 3G, 4G and 5G comms to isolated regions of the planet
  • Dossier: Mayflower Autonomous Ship - It might its name with the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to America but this highly intelligent vessel has been designed to provide a platform for robust, long-endurance ocean research
  • Focus: Embedded computing - Safety and security standards for these systems, which ease the customisation of unmanned vehicles, are now emerging. We explain the support they give to designers
  • Digest: ElevonX Sierra VTOL - What started out as a fixed-wing UAV has evolved into this version that comes with a VTOL capability, in response to customer requests. Here’s how it was developed
  • Insight: UUVs - With climate change now near the top of humanity’s concerns, UUVs are playing a growing role in gathering data about its effects
  • Dossier: Flygas Engineering GAS418S - This gasoline UAV boxer engine comes with a gear-driven supercharger to maintain its power at up to 11,000m. The company behind it tells us how it was developed
  • Show report: Ocean Business 2021 - Our round-up of the marine systems that were on display at one of the few recent in-person exhibitions
  • Focus: Electric motors - Conventional notions of what makes an electric motor are being overturned by advances in the technology, and are leading to radical new propulsion architectures
  • In operation: Priva Kompano - Farmers around the world are grappling with the issues of crop productivity and recruiting and retaining employees, which this leaf-cutter UGV has been designed to address
  • PS: Autonomous racing - The motivation to innovate technologies for the numerous autonomous racing competitions around the world is proving to be just as strong as for IC engine and electric racing
