AUVSI San Diego Chapter wins 2017 AUVSI Development Award for most improved chapter!
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.
Real-Time Innovations (RTI) has announced that AUTomotive Open Systems ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) has released the latest version of the Adaptive Platform, Release 18-10, which features a full network binding of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard.
The release of the Adaptive Platform allows automotive manufacturers to now implement an AUTOSAR Adaptive framework with DDS and develop highly autonomous systems, such as Level 4 and Level 5 autonomous vehicles.
With a focus on creating robust, reliable, safe, and secure software for autonomous mobility systems, a company called Apex.AI was officially announced on Nov. 15.
The company recently closed a $15.5 million Series A funding.
Alpha Unmanned Systems has selected Robotic Skies Inc. to develop and implement a global support plan for its current and future commercial UAS, which currently features the company’s flagship product, the Alpha 800 unmanned helicopter.
The Alpha 800 has a flight endurance of more than three hours, a payload capacity of three kilograms and a range of up to 30 kilometers.
