The global Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market is valued at $6,762 million in 2014 and is expected to show a robust growth to reach $10,573 million in 2020, registering a CAGR of 7.73%, till 2020. The market is being driven by the rise in demand for non defense applications and the increased UAV functionality to perform complex operations which…Continue
My name is Raviv Raz and I am a co-founder of a really cool startup called Percepto. I really hope you will like it since it pretty much grew out of reading and following this community.
Percepto is an add-on device, some may call a companion computer, that is designed to give almost any UAV computer vision…Continue
Recently I was approached about one of my previous blog posts on Vineyard Surveys by a Drone Startup based in San Francisco, Drone Deploy. In my previous blogs I’ve stated the importance of a whole system approach to UAV work with a smooth end-to-end flow. It’s not about the drone, or how sexy it is. It’s using the…Continue
An example of the new geo-spatial products and virtual surveying and planning tools which we can bring to the farmer's kitchen table today - safely, harmlessly and economically, over and over again. All thanks to small UAVs - the new personal mapping systems. Thanks to the tremendous contributions from the DIY Drone community, small enterprises can now offer new cost saving…Continue

I came across this interesting video:
As you can see in the video they have managed to control the coaxial design without using a swash plate and all the complicated mechanisms required for that. It looks like this is an excellent concept for very light weight systems. I do wonder how easy this can be scaled up into a device that can actually carry any…Continue
I'm happy to share with you today BreezeUAV.
BreezeUAV is an autopilot running on Arduino Mega 2560 which allow the user to do some automatic missions or to fly in "semi-automatic" mode with a Joystick. In fact, instead of controlling the surface controls of the airplane, the joystick define the euler angles desired. Then the autopilot, using PID controllers, stabilize the UAV.
I first decide to implement the whole system on a Yak…

We received one of a few Sky Observer samples ZETA Science had available for testing a couple of weeks ago for evaluation before they go into production, assembled it and took it for a test flight.
The RTF model is very near completion with all electronics and cabling cleanly and…Continue

It's been already a while ago since we started selling one of our newest drones based on the Talon UAV airframe: the Aeromapper Talon.
In this occasion we wanted to use a large foam aircraft, something that was compact and yet large to offer 60 minutes endurance carrying a Sony Nex 5 with wide angle lens (as standard sensor, but more sensors are available). We…Continue
I have been working on and off towards a VTOL aircraft for a few years now. All of this work has been kept off of the record, but I had the very first successful VTOL Flight and transition with this aircraft yesterday and am very excited to share these results. This method of VTOL is not a new…Continue
Flying Wing for Search and Rescue
I've been working on designing a flying wing UAV since 2 months now. Human search and rescue using an autonomous drone is the prime objective of this project.
One of the major aim of our project is to show how a visual human detection system that uses images from a normal camera can be implemented in software. The system would fit into the larger context of disaster…Continue
