Unmanned Systems Technology - February/March 2019

  • Intro - Vehicle sensors rather than the vehicles themselves were the talk of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show 
  • Platform one: Mission-critical info - CES proves a popular platform for launching low-cost Lidars, more transitioning electric VTOL UAVs reach prototype or working model stage, all-environment vehicle put through its paces, Mars rover navigation software passes initial tests, and more 
  • In conversation: Ian Williams-Wynn - Integrating UAVs into unsegregated airspace is what gets Blue Bear’s MD up in the morning. Here he explains why 
  • Dossier: Wingcopter 178 - We report on the development of this electric tiltrotor VTOL UAV, which uses a single propulsion system for take-off, wing-borne cruise flight, landing and all the transitions in between 
  • Focus: 5G communications - As chips with the latest cellular comms technology become ready for launch, we examine the impact it will have on the control and organisation of unmanned systems 
  • Insight: UUVs - For users of underwater vehicles, modular payloads are now a must-have, so how are system developers responding to that new demand? 
  • Show report: CES 2019 - Our highlights of the unmanned systems products launched at this, the biggest show of its kind in the world 
  • Digest: Stromkind KAT series - How jet thrusters proved to be the solution for using this scalable USV in a wide range of applications 
  • Dossier: Intelligent Energy fuel cell - This hydrogen fuel cell for small UAVs offers much longer endurance than battery power. Here’s how it was developed 
  • In operation: Earthsense TerraSentia - Precision agriculture could be revolutionised by this UGV, thanks to its ability to manage crops from under their canopy 
  • Focus: Connectors - We explain how the growing capabilities of unmanned systems are driving advances in the designs and features of connectors 
  • Show report: Advanced Engineering 2018 - Leading-edge materials and manufacturing methods featured heavily at last year’s show. Here are some of the key ones 
  • PS: Interstellar travel - Reaching the nearest star outside the Solar System could soon be a reality if the potential of tiny unmanned probes is realised
