Marcus UAV need a web developer.
Marcus UAV unmanned aerial vehicles systems offer realtime video and high resolution aerial images on demand. They are the superior alternative to flying traditional aircraft for aerial surveillance and analysis. They provide images for aerial photography, exploration, disaster recovery, and a multitude of other uses

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

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.

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.

Desert Hawk III quieter and more stable than Raven.
For over five years, the American infantry’s favorite UAS has been the tiny (2.2 kg/4.4 pound) Raven micro-UAS. But over the last few years, the slightly larger (3.2 kg/7 pound) Desert Hawk 3 (DH3) has been gaining in popularity.
