AEROXO is a Russian design bureau.

The company introduced an unmanned tiltrotor that can take off vertically from any platform and stay in the air motionless as a helicopter, as well as travel long distances at the speed of an airplane. The aircraft can reach speeds of up to 150 km/h and stay in the air for up to 1 hour. The main tasks of this UAV are cargo delivery weighing up to 50 kg and aerial photography with various payloads.



Kronshtadt is a Russian company specializing in the development and production of high-tech products and solutions necessary for the creation, development, and safe operation of complex technical equipment in the air, at sea, and on land.

The company did not present unmanned aerial systems at this exhibition this year but presented the updated laser scanner (LIDAR), which is used on unmanned complexes. LIDAR equipped with 8 lasers that are installed on the UAV to create a 3D model of the terrain. In addition to the laser scanner, the company introduced a program for processing the received aerial photography data based on neural networks.

Antimatter Space Propulsion Possible within a Decade

Antimatter Space Propulsion Possible within a Decade
Dreams of antimatter space propulsion are closer to reality than most rocket scientists could ever imagine, says former Fermilab physicist Gerald Jackson. In fact, if money were no object, he says an antimatter-driven spacecraft prototype could be tested within a decade. To that end, next month, Jackson and his Chicago-based Hbar Technologies firm are launching a $200,000 Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the next phase of its antimatter propulsion research.
