5 Things I Discovered at Commercial UAV Expo Europe – Part II

Commercial UAV Expo Europe took place in Amsterdam this year, and it was an event that saw everything from insights about surveying & mapping challenges across the continent to innovative solutions like the hydrogen fuel cells for UAVs that BMPower is building. Before I went to the event, I published a blog that laid out…

Chaired…

BMPower Building Hydrogen Fuel Cells for UAVs

In our efforts to find and write about alternative and innovative ways to power UAVs, we have encountered many interesting proposals. Those innovations include small rotary engines, fuel cells, hybrid models and battery-recharging contraptions which extend current TITA (time in the air) beyond the unacceptable levels of today. But those are not the only innovative ways…

INVOLI, the Missing Link in the Implementation of an Effective UTM

In order for regulators throughout the world to allow for the full integration of manned and unmanned aircraft in controlled airspace, a few technologies and procedures need to be perfected and fine tuned to work with each other seamlessly. One of these technologies is known as an unmanned traffic management (UTM) system, and there will…
