Unmanned Systems Technology - April/May 2019

  • Intro - Whether it’s buses or space capsules, maturing technologies are enabling autonomous systems to reach into a host of new areas
  • Platform one: Mission-critical info - Goodyear unveils tyre-propeller concept, ‘perching’ system for UAVs proposed, goal-driven autonomy provides new approach to controlling UUVs, and much more 
  • In conversation: Andrea Maccapani - Leonardo’s forward-looking UAS CTO explains why safety and simplicity are the keystones of his engineering philosophy 
  • Dossier: iXblue DriX - You don’t have to run deep to run silent, as the development of this maritime survey USV amply demonstrates 
  • Focus: Maintenance - As UAV capabilities grow, how will maintenance services evolve to meet new requirements? We explain 
  • Insight: UGVs - Municipal authorities are now trialling unmanned ground vehicles for public-sector tasks. Here are some notable examples 
  • Show report: IDEX 2019 - Our take on the unmanned systems unveiled this year at the only defence exhibition for the Middle East/North Africa region 
  • Digest: Planck Aero Shearwater - The technology behind an imaging system that allows a UAV to land on a moving marine or ground vehicle 
  • Dossier: Sky Power hybrid system - Details of this flexible hybrid solution that can be incorporated into two-stroke or rotary UAV engines 
  • In operation: Delft Dynamics RH4 - We explain how this quadcopter has been modified to make towing ships into harbour easier and safer 
  • Focus: Ground control systems - Modularity and flexible integration are the key emerging trends in GCSs – so which developers are doing what? 
  • Digest: StreetDrone Twizy - Why this small ‘quadricycle’ car is proving to be such a good platform for speeding up self-driving software development 
  • Show report: Oceanology Americas 2019 - With a host of new products on show, the 50th anniversary of this marine technology exhibition didn’t disappoint, as we report 
  • PS: Atomically precise manufacturing - How we could one day be able to build products atom by atom
