Today military forces use Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in many roles, primarily for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) supporting all echelons, from the strategic...
GM's proposes a versatile, electrically powered platform that uses hydrogen fuel-cell technology to support energy-dependent applications such as sensor platforms, high energy lasers, command posts, communications sites, field medical facilities, and emergency power and water generation facilities.
The event demonstrated collaboration of manned and unmanned vehicles conducting a combat mission. Among the unmanned assets included in the demonstration was an all terrain vehicle (ATV) modified with a landing plate on top, to operate a tethered multi rotor UAV and an aut0nomous mortar vehicle that provided direct and indirect fire support for the combat team, using the robots as fire observers, thus establishing a robotic 'hunter-killer' team.
Military robotics expert Roboteam is developing a hybrid air/ground drone robot system called ROOSTER, that mimics the flying of a male chicken. Its capability to fly over a short distance enables the Rooster to get around obstacles and reach vantage positions, like moving from a street to a rooftop in a short time.
First impressions from the bi-annual IDEX defense Expo kicked off today in Abu Dhabi with an impressive show of domestic and international weapon systems and an impressive dynamic demonstration.
Following extensive testing in the laboratory and in the field, Laser Detect System (LDS) Ltd. is unveiling SpectroDrone – the world’s first drone-based explosive detection sensor. SpectroDrone employs LDS’s patented standoff gated laser spectroscopy techniques, proven to detect a wide range of explosive and hazardous materials at distances of several meters.
Raytheon UK and Estonian UGV developer Milrem unveiled at Eurosatory an IED detection platform based in Raytheon UK GroundEye sensor system, integrated on the THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) developed by Milrem.
IAI is introducing the RoBattle, a new combat robot it has developed. A member of a growing family of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) that...
A new weaponized robot developed by Israel's General Robotics represents a new breed of 'combat robots', to be unveiled at Eurosatory 2016 in Paris this month. The robot dubbed DOGO is designed to assist combat teams in close combat and counter-terror operations.
To succeed in their missions, military units must have a robust, multi-faceted picture of their operational environments, including the location, nature and activity of...
While the Singapore Airshow is primarily an aerospace event, amphibious capabilities are receiving high attention here, addressing growing interest in Singapore and other nations in the region to enabling their military and first responders to go anywhere, moving in water, through channels, swamps, or mud. Following are few of the new amphibious systems and capabilities that caught our attention at the airshow.
Singapore Technologies Kinetics is highlighting at the Singapore Airshow two unmanned ground vehicle systems (UGV) demonstrating robotics applications of combat systems - the Israeli Amstaff and Estonian TheMIS.
The 'AirMule' Vertical TakeOff and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) successfully completed its first untethered flight at the Megiddo airfield in northern Israel on December 30th, the developer Tactical Robotics Ltd announced.
In the next 10 years about 30 percent of the Russian combat power will consist of remotely controlled and robotic platforms. Uran-9, unmanned BMP-3, obstacle breaching and demining flail robot are among the new systems covered here.
