Unmanned Systems Technology - Issue 041

Highlights in this issue include a conversation with GE Aviation’s principal engineer Janek Biskupski and we investigate the operation of the Hefring Engineering OceanScout. Our dossiers detail the PteroDynamics x-P4 and the NWFC-1500 fuel cell. Our digest article features the 4Front Robotics Cricket and we have an insight into autonomous transport. Our focus articles cover composites as well as sense and avoid systems, we also have show reports from DroneX and DSEI 2021 plus much more...

Unmanned Systems Technology 041 December/January 2022

  • Intro - As regulations catch up with the technology, so unmanned systems are reaching a point where they will be an everyday sight
  • Platform one: Mission-critical info - Driverless car hire service uses remote driver for delivery and collection, tethered UAV controlled by machine learning, closedloop system tests car radar sensors, and much more
  • In conversation: Janek Biskupski - GE Aviation’s principal engineer discusses the company’s new aero engine – its first in 50 years
  • Dossier: PteroDynamics X-P4 - We explain how this UAV’s unique VTOL-transitioning technology was developed and what its advantages are
  • Focus: Sense & avoid systems - Why sense & avoid is moving to ground-based radar and unmanned traffic management systems
  • Digest: 4Front Robotics Cricket - If you’re looking for a UGV that can climb up pipes and along tunnels, this one certainly has the legs for it
  • Insight: Autonomous transport - All the talk about these systems is being turned into practical services, as the companies here are showing
  • Dossier: NWFC-1500 fuel cell - In a unexpected expansion from supplying multi-fuel engines, Northwest UAV has produced this hydrogen fuel cell. We report on why it has done so and how it developed the cell
  • Show report: DroneX 2021 - Highlights of some of the new developments showcased at this recent expo at London’s ExCel centre
  • In operation: Hefring Engineering OceanScout - We find out how this buoyancy-driven UUV has been designed and built to ‘democratise’ the scientific research of our oceans by small teams on a strict budget
  • Focus: Composites - In line with the growing sizes of unmanned vehicles, composite materials developers are turning to ways of increasing strength and stability while reducing waste and costs
  • Show report: DSEI 2021 - Our round-up of some of the newest military-grade products on display at this world-leading defence and security exhibition
  • PS: Extra-large naval UUVs - We look at why the 50-ton Orca concept XLUUV is being developed for the US Navy, and how it will fit into its vision of a more distributed fleet architecture
