Piranha Terminal Guidance Testing A Hit
CLMax Engineering and Procerus Technologies (www.procerus.com) have worked together to integrate Procerus’ closed loop vision-based terminal guidance technologies, OnPoint Onboard (TM), into the Piranha Micro Air Vehicle. The combined system provides users a method to rapidly deploy and precisely deliver lethal and non lethal payloads within one meter of a selected target. Successful engagements have been completed in high cross winds up to 15 knots, rain, and snow. Additionally the system allows for non line of site (NLOS) engagements day or night. When used on the fast moving and agile Piranha the system is capable of engaging moving targets.

Yellowtail Rolls Out New Method For Wind Turbine Blade Inspection
Heres another operator flying commercially in the NAS illegally in the USA, the airframe is actually an Australian Cybereye cyberQuad. I wonder if it will be able to pass ASTM F38 muster. It is a very accomplished platform and operators in Europe and Australia are able completely legally to undertake this simple task. Just the thing sUAS are made for. Guess this is a plus one for the survey http://lnkd.in/ewCCq9

Solar Paint
Imagine if the next coat of paint you put on the outside of your home generates electricity from light—electricity that can be used to power the appliances and equipment on the inside. A team of researchers at the University of Notre Dame has made a major advance toward this vision by creating an inexpensive “solar paint” that uses semiconducting...

Aurora Awarded AFRL Urban Beat Cop Program

Aurora Awarded AFRL Urban Beat Cop Program

MANASSAS, VA Aurora Flight Sciences was awarded a contract with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and the Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO) to provide a specialized Skate® Small Unmanned Aerial System (SUAS), designed for autonomous operations in urban environments.

The “Urban Beat Cop” (UBC) program will demonstrate the ability of an SUAS platform to perform missions typical to that of law enforcement officers “walking a beat” along a city street. While walking the beat, a police officer becomes very familiar with areas of the city by constantly observing, understanding, and interpreting what they see on a daily basis. A system that automatically performs this same mission in asymmetric urban conflicts, absent the presence of the warfighter, can significantly reduce casualties as well as improve the situational awareness.

Just one Predator C Avenger ordered by USAF

Its off the blocks, but not and you must excuse the pun to a flying start.

The United States Airforce has ordered just one example of the General Atomics Predator C, Avenger for use inAfghanistan.

“This aircraft will be used as a test asset and will provide a significantly increased weapons and sensors payload capacity on an aircraft that will be able to fly to targets much more rapidly than the MQ-9 [Reaper] UAS,” the USAF said in an announcement.

“Since it has an internal weapons bay and four hardpoints on each wing it will also allow greater flexibility and will accommodate a large selection of next generation sensor and weapons payloads.”

The purchase was revealed on the Federal Business Opportunities website on Dec. 9.Lt. Gen. Thomas Owen, commander of the service’s Aeronautical Systems Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, approved the procurement.
