Geo Rhea use Aeryon Scout for 3D modelling
Aerial imagery from the Aeryon Scout brings a new level of speed and accuracy to building 3D models of ground surfaces. This is particularly true for modeling and volume calculations in mining – where an aerial perspective reveals surface details that cannot be reliably measured from the ground. Aeryon customer and GIS service provider partner, Geo-Rhea, is a leader in geo-spatial analysis for several industries and applications and uses the Aeryon Scout to produce extremely accurate models and volume calculations. This translates into more effective operations and measurable cost savings for its customers.

DARPA wants smartphone apps for ADAPT

DARPA wants smartphone apps for ADAPT
Current sensor systems, like those being developed for DARPA’s Adaptable Sensor System (ADAPT) program, are increasingly complex; they offer advances in capabilities far beyond their current use. One significant limiting factor in our ability to leverage all of these advances is the lack of sophisticated, adaptive applications. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), for example, have become indispensible intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms on todays battlefield. How much more effective could they be if an app were created that allowed a swarm of small deployed UAVs to be controlled as a single unit (a hive so to speak) without having to individually control each vehicle?

International Maritime and Aerospace) Exhibition from 6th to 10th December 2011.

The CAMCOPTER® S-100 unmanned helicopter has already performed flawlessly at exhibitions and air shows around the world and wrote aviation history in 2009 when it became the first and only UAS ever to fly at the Paris Air Show. Subsequently, flight displays at ILA Berlin (2010) and IDEX in Abu Dhabi 2011 followed, where the S-100 could demonstrate its proven and reliable flight characteristics in civil airspace.

Success for CICADA
WASHINGTON, Dec 05, 2011 The Naval Research Laboratory Vehicle Research Section has successfully completed flight tests for the Autonomous Deployment Demonstration (ADD) program. The final demonstration took place Sept. 1 at the Yuma Proving Grounds, Yuma, Ariz., and consisted of a series of eight balloon-drops at altitudes of up to 57,000 ft, delivering sensor-emplacement Close-In Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft (CICADA) vehicles within 15 feet of their intended landing locations.
