"Corey, I wasn't involved in this work and I'm not affiliated with the university, but NMSU has had a UAS Flight Test Center with a up and running for a couple of years, at least.  You can read more about it here: NMSU Physical…"

"Gary, I think NASA has a pretty good track record for respecting the intellectual property of others, but regardless, you'd want to make sure you have the proper protections in place before you start demonstrating a technology that is…"

"Brent, there are a lot of different pieces to the ADS-B puzzle.  Wikipedia has a good overview on this page.  Most aircraft in the U.S. will be required to implement "ADS-B Out" by the year 2020.  That means they will be…"

"ADS-B is still ground based and from what I hear pilots will pick up data climbing through 300agl if they are within 30 miles of the tower. How will this be useful on a SUAV? "

"Note that if you miss the November 15 "Early Bird" registration date, the registration fee jumps from $5,000 to $7,000. "

"Hi Garry,  Your probably right, but the trouble with this technology is that it has military applications and NDAs relating to the military are always a little suspect. I had personal experience 30 years ago relating to a laser vision system…"

"It's not as bad as you think.  I saw a post here, a few months ago, where a clever person had put together a working ADS-B receiver for $30.  We're paying a little less than $3,000 for ours, but they can transmit and receive and…"

"From what I can see this is a test for the ADS system which shows a cost for in and out estimated for normal piloted planes in the vicinity of $25,000.00. All that we have to do is come up with a completely automatic recognize and response system in…"

Collision of RC Plane and plane with with people in it...

Posted on August 21, 2010 at 1:30am 23 Comments





Last week in Colorado a 46% scale RC plane flying a demo at a charity event at a private airfield got clipped by a full scale biplane with two people in it. Apparently, the video has been taken down from Youtube but there is a short article and a copy of the video over on Jalopnik (I have attempted to embed the video above). You should probably watch the… Continue

Commercial Quadrotor Recommendations?

Posted on March 21, 2010 at 9:24am 10 Comments

I am setting up a lab this summer for some student research that will be similar in most ways to this one at MIT: http://vertol.mit.edu/



I would like to buy 6-8 commercially available trirotor or quadrotor helicopters in the $1000 - $1500 price range that would be similar in capabilities to the old Draganflyer V Ti. I've looked around and I would be very happy using Parrot AR Drones, but they have not set a date for releasing them or published a… Continue
