Police Force Solution

Police Force Solution

Curious about how to best protect its 36 square mile jurisdiction—a large portion of which is occupied by a lake—the Town of Linn Police Department in Wisconsin wanted to explore the growing trend of using drones to help solve different cases, from drug busts to locating lost children and felons on the run. A popular […]

Scentroid DR2000

Scentroid DR2000

Scentroid’s new drone-based air quality analyzer, the DR2000, is a leap forward in the aerial air quality monitoring and environmental industry. With the assisted drone, it can analyze ambient air at heights of 125 meters above ground level, which was previously impossible to accomplish. While in flight, several built-in sensors provide remote monitoring of a multitude […]
Dept. of Defense’s “Blue sUAS”

Dept. of Defense’s “Blue sUAS”

The Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), a Department of Defense (DOD) organization that accelerates commercial technology for national defense, announced the availability of five U.S.-manufactured drone configurations to provide trusted, secure small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) options to the U.S. Government. The announcement is the culmination of an 18-month effort with DIU’s initial work supporting the […]

Army UAVs Avoid Powerlines

Army UAVs Avoid Powerlines

At the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory, researchers have developed a novel sensor and software application to detect and avoid energized power lines in the vicinity of unmanned aerial system, or UAS. The goal is to provide autonomous systems sufficient time and distance to react, avoid wires and navigate follow-on maneuvers. Army […]
AI Helps Drones Navigate

AI Helps Drones Navigate

Engineers at Caltech have designed a new data-driven method to control the movement of multiple robots through cluttered, unmapped spaces, so they do not run into one another. Multi-robot motion coordination is a fundamental robotics problem with wide-ranging applications that range from urban search and rescue to the control of fleets of self-driving cars to […]

DJI Drones Collecting User Data

DJI Drones Collecting User Data

Cyber security researchers have warned that DJI, a drone manufacturer used by British police, may be collecting unnecessary amounts of information from users’ phones, presenting a potential security concern. French and American researchers at Synacktiv and GRIMM also found, in two separate reports, that the Android app used to power DJI drones was also able to bypass the Google […]
Percepto Parachutes to Safety

Percepto Parachutes to Safety

The autonomous Percepto Sparrow has completed more than 50 successful test flights with its ASTM 3322-18 standard compliant integral parachute. The achievement builds upon the drone’s existing safety features. The parachute feature is compliant with FAA standards and will expedite further the approvals for flying over people and beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) […]

Mission Profile: 3D Mapping An Osprey Nest (On a Cell Tower!)

Mission Profile: 3D Mapping An Osprey Nest (On a Cell Tower!)

Wildlife conservation is one use for small, civil uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) that is seldom listed among the marquee applications for the technology, such orthomosaic mapping, industrial inspection, and emergency response, to name a few, yet it has the potential to make significant contributions to environmental preservation. That’s what I learned when June Stephens, an […]
Drones For Conservation

Drones For Conservation

When you hear the word “drones” the first thing that comes to mind is probably not conservation. But as the technology of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or drones continues to advance, they are proving useful in many facets of conservation work. At the forefront of this venture is The Nature Conservancy’s Gustavo Lozada, technology and […]
