Unmanned Systems Technology - February/March 2018

  • Intro - Unmanned missions to the Moon may have been grounded now, but the advent of low-cost sensors could herald a new countdown 
  • Platform one: Mission-critical info - New collision system based on low-cost smartphone cameras, algorithms for real-time synthetic aperture sonar, why U-cup seals are the best design for gimbal precision, and more 
  • Show report: CES - Our pick of the unmanned systems technology unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show 
  • In conversation: Jean-Claude Tourn - The president of E Yo Copter explains what inspired him to develop his radical jet-powered helicopter 
  • Dossier: ASV Global C-Cat 3 USV - This survey vessel keeps things simple and low-cost. It can still do a full day’s work though, thanks to some clever development 
  • Focus: Test centres - What needs to be tested to certify an unmanned system, and what facilities do test centres offer? We have the details 
  • Insight: UUVs - UUV technology has lagged behind its conterparts in systems for other realms, but research around the world is set to rectify that 
  • Dossier: Limbach L 275 EF - Years of honing this lightweight two-stroke boxer engine have led to a power plant that’s ideal for aviation propulsion 
  • Focus: Lidar - Laser-based sensing systems use a range of technologies and have varied advantages, as we explain 
  • Digest: Heliceo DroneBox - This technology platform condenses nearly three-quarters of an unmanned craft’s operation into a single unit. Here’s how it works 
  • Focus: Composites - We report on the various methods of making these highperformance materials, and why unmanned systems developers should pay close attention to them 
  • PS: Add lightness and ‘simplicate’ - When you think about it, the subject of simplicity in engineering is not really all that simple. But it is quite interesting
