Posted by in categories: drones, internet, robotics/AI

ModalAI, a Blue UAS framework manufacturer of autonomous drone technology, says it has developed the world’s smallest and most advanced autopilot built in the USA. Weighing only 16 grams, ModalAI’s VOXL 2 is designed specifically for GPS-denied, autonomous drones with obstacle avoidance.

It is powered by the Qualcomm Flight RB5 5G platform and integrates a PX4 real-time flight controller with an 8-core CPU, a GPU and NPU that provide a combined 15 Tera Operations Per Second (TOPs), seven image sensors, and TDK IMUs, and barometer.

With some parts held together by duct tape.

In the raging battle between Russia and Ukraine, Russia’s small drones have been reported to be taking a deadly toll on Ukrainian forces. A new video, however, is revealing that the highly efficient precision drones are not as advanced as one might expect.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry shared a video on Sunday that shows a soldier allegedly dismantling a Russian military surveillance drone and pointing out several highly unsophisticated features. In fact, seeing what the whole drone consists of it seems like something a schoolchild could put together.

Iris Automation adds TruWeather tech to Casia G system

Posted by in categories: climatology, drones, robotics/AI, surveillance

Safety avionics specialist Iris Automation has made a meteorological enhancement to its Casia G ground-based surveillance system with the integration of TruWeather Solutions sensors and services – a move aiming to add climate security to the company’s aerial detect-and-avoid protection.

Addition of a precision weather utility was a natural step in Iris Automation’s wider objective of ensuring flight safety of, and between, crewed aircraft and drones The company says local micro weather and low-altitude atmospheric conditions often differ considerably from those at higher levels. That differential creates a larger degree of weather uncertainty for aerial service providers, who weigh safety factors heavily into whether they make flights as planned or not.

Eurolink Systems to launch multi-mission ready Beluga mini drone

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, drones, military

Italian company EuroLink Systems, a technology solutions manufacturer with decades of industry experience, will launch the Beluga mini drone, a dual-use aircraft ready to deploy anywhere from the desert to the arctic, at next week’s Xponential 2022 in Orlando.

The new state-of-the-art multirotor drone blends a bio-inspired design with high-performance features that make it suitable for a wide variety of tasks – from military or public safety applications like short-range reconnaissance, search & rescue, or security applications to commercial use in 3D terrain mapping, urban logistics support applications, threat detections, and urgent medical transportation.

Beluga has been in development for three years and combines Eurolink Systems’ technical experience with mother nature shapes, resulting in an elegant design and rich technical functionality – that represents the best of art and science. The drone can fly fast, with a maximum cruising speed of up to 112 km/h (69 mph), for up to 60 minutes with a 3.3 lbs. (1.5 kg) payload.
