This year’s Xponential theme is “Assured Autonomy”. Without assurance, trust in UAS safety and correct operation is constrained, impeding broad deployment and adoption and hindering proving UAS benefits for society. Foundational to this fabric of trust is that this technology must be robust, secure, and resilient at all levels. An... read more...

Ocean Going Vessels (OGV's) are significant air pollution sources. OGV fuels are largely to blame. Under an international convention (MARPOL) certain sea areas (ECA's) are designated where only low sulfur fuels are allowed (or high sulfur fuels if the OGV has scrubbers). Public health experts estimate the lower sulfur caps... read more...

Counter-UAS (C-UAS) systems continue to be an important priority in the industry. There are several different architectures C-UAS systems currently use in the market. Many of them include a camera system for operator visual confirmation. Adding an AI/ML classification function and auto-tracker to this architecture would reduce false detections thereby... read more...
