BEST SECURITY DRONES: 5 KEY FEATURES
Security Drones are being used in a wide variety of security applications, from patrolling borders and conducting 24/7 surveillance of huge sectors to responding to early warning triggers and conducting initial assessments. But there are a few things prospective enterprise drone customers need to know. The introduction of low altitude sUAS (small Unmanned Arial Systems) as Security Drones in…
High Speed Drones for ISR / OODA
The role of time and space in ISR and OODA (incident response) integration. High speed drones. With drones the functional specifications that often receive the most attention typically are: flight time, and payload.  But when it comes to longer range missions, long flight times do little to help if the drone, responding to an incident, arrives at a target destination…
Detecting Humans with SAR remote sensing technologies
LOW ALTITUDE AUTOMATIC TARGET DETECTION WITH REMOTE SENSING using SAR technology. Automated Target Detection Automatic target detection (ATD) is very important in military applications and there are challenging problems with ground surveillance. The inability to achieve high detection rates and low false alarm rates for well-known challenges, such as the target type, weather conditions, and…
Urban Rural Air Mobility
Urban Rural Air Mobility refers to transportation systems that move people and goods by air. These transportation systems developed in response to both traffic congestion in the Urban context or accessibility in the Rural context. While the two different environments differ dramatically the challenges for transport and delivery are very similar.   DIFFERENT JUNGLES –…

DRONE NOISE LEVELS
Drone noise levels. The advent of drone technology and the prospect of skies filled with whirring rotorcraft have raised alarms about increasing noise levels and the resulting impact on society (and the environment), challenging drone manufacturers to find ways of reducing the noise (acoustic) footprints of their aircraft.   DRONES and SURVEILLANCE Drone technology powerfully…
