Chapter News

The University of California, Riverside (UC Riverside) will develop artificial intelligence (AI) for UAS, using a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

AI in UAS would one day allow the robots to conduct “far-reaching reconnaissance missions”— such as search and rescue missions, and environmental and security monitoring—without direct human control.

In support of the firefighting efforts in Northern California by CAL FIRE, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc.’s (GA-ASI) MQ-9 UAS is being used by the California Air National Guard’s 163d Attack Wing operating out of March Air Reserve Base.

The UAS has full-motion video (optical and infra-red), as well as ground imaging Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) capability, which provides clear sight through both clouds and smoke.

Flight school Revolution Aviation has partnered with aerial photography company Ultimate Drone Productions to begin offering cinematography services via UAS.

Through this partnership, Newport Beach, California-based Revolution Aviation—primarily known as its U.S.-registered trademark EatSleepFly—and Ultimate Drone Productions will provide a “full service photo and video cinematography production services.”

According to a press release published by Vertical Magazine, the demand for aerial imagery in Southern California is out-pacing supply, as there are just approximately 20,000 registered commercial UAS services in all 50 states.

This Week in the Unmanned Systems and Robotics World.

UAVOS Inc. has developed an unmanned aerial complex based on Pipistrel’s Sinus light aircraft.

UAVOS converted three Pipistrel Sinus aircraft into UAVs, and modified the wings of the original aircraft for the installation of hangers for payload. In addition to that, the wiring was changed, and the company integrated its UAVOS automatic control system into the aircraft.
