Geocue announce Loki GNSS for DJI Drones

Huntsville, AL – GeoCue Group Inc. (GeoCue) is excited to announce a new GNSS positioning system that will allow users of DJI Phantom 4 Pros and Inspire 2 drones (as well as most drones using higher end cameras) to achieve survey-level accuracy with a minimum of ground control. Loki , our new direct geopositioning system for small unmanned aerial systems solves the two fundamental problems associated with this technology: Positioning […]

The Ultimate Flight Check And Planning Tool

Drone Start Is The Ultimate Flight Check And Planning Tool Drones are expensive and can be complicated to fly, and a good deal of drone ‘fly aways’ are caused by human error. Most drone users are unaware how things such as weather conditions, solar storms, and surrounding terrain. These factors can greatly affect their flight. There is a new app, launching this month, that’s about to change all of that. […]

THOR hybrid UAV hovers like a helicopter, flies like a plane

THOR hybrid UAV hovers like a helicopter, flies like a plane

The THOR prototype can transition from hover to fixed-wing cruise mode by rotating its wings into alignment Conventional multicopter drones are excellent at hovering and VTOL, but they can’t cover long distances as efficiently as fixed-wing aircraft. A team of students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design is trying to get the best of both worlds with the Transformable HOvering Rotorcraft (THOR). THOR is just a prototype at […]

Scientists Add Defibrillator To Drones

Московский технологический институт Russian Scientists Add Defibrillator To Drones In what looks like a potentially useful use of drone technology, Russian scientists at the Moscow Technology Institute have stuck a defibrillator on a drone so it can be remotely piloted to a person in need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. So much like an air ambulance, but — presumably — a lot cheaper. The project is a collaboration between the Aerospace Laboratory […]
