DSEI 2013 Unmanned Systems Photo Report
NERVA from Nexter, mounting a EO/laser sight and different illuminators mounted on Picatiny rails
NERVA is designed with a universal attachment that easily enable attachment of different payloads using a common interface
The newest NERVA unveiled at DSEI 2013 is this two-wheel model, provided with a fixed camera, illuminators (white light and IR) and a tail that, when deployed, can elevate the camera’s line of sight
The MACE from MIRA robotic vehicles was designed to carry the Ground Penetrating radar on route clearing missions
MIRA has a hybrid-electric propulsion that optimally supports the Ground penetrating Radar on the slow movement required for the route clearing missions
D-DALUS from IAT21 is designed with an innovative propulsion mechanism supporting the vehicle in ground effect on its flight
This propulsion mechanism developed for D-DALUS can carry payloads up to 10 kg in weight. IAT21 works on the development of other platforms carrying heavier payloads as well
Slyph uses a three-arm design, each arm mounts a counter rotating tandem motor providing stabilization and forward lateral maneuverability
Recon Robotics displayed this Throwbot, equipped with larger wheels to cope with higher obstacles
Throwbot is smaller and lighter, it is also much cheaper than most other robots
Hundreds of miniature Black Hornet systems are currently operating by the British military, demonstrating surprisingly long life. Each micro-copter has three cameras, linked to a single video channel, switched between the cameras of interest.
The Gnome from Slovakia is designed to dive under operator control (linked via cable) and search underwater at a distance 50 meter away.
A bird-like mini-UAV displayed by EXPAL, mimics a hawk to blend in natural environment.
A new fuel cell from Ultra Electronics generates electrical energy from propane, at an efficiency of 30%. The fuel cell weighs 2.5 kilograms and requires only 100 grams of propane to run a UAV for one hour. A typical pressurized container will run an electrically powered mini-UAV for eight to 12 hours. An equal weight of Lithium-ion battery pack would be able to fly a similar drone for 2-3 hours.
This Precision Remote control kit for a long range sniper rifle controls the weapon’s mount via cable, using battery pack recharged by solar panel, the unit sustained an unlimited mission cycle, supporting snipers on extended missions, enabling the sniper team to monitor their weapons and observation gear from a remote, safe position.
