France gets ready for Reaper
A review of the latest developments from around the unmanned systems industry.
As the US armed forces enter a period of transition, Scott R Gourley explores ongoing joint efforts to develop a truly multi-mission small UGV, and the likely fate of the current ground robot inventory.
Integrating autonomous capabilities onto existing manned helicopters can provide similar functionality to that of a dedicated unmanned platform, but without the lengthy and costly processes often involved with certification, Beth Stevenson reports.
Scratching the surface
USVs have a way to go to reach the same levels of proliferation as their aerial counterparts, however they are finding a possible niche in the counter-terrorism and -insurgency role. Andrew White surveys the market.

Licensing restrictions continue to prevent Western manufacturers from exporting large UAS to many countries. Angus Batey questions such regulatory frameworks and considers how this has affected exports to the Middle East in particular.
The task of sorting, analysing and storing the vast amounts of information received from airborne sensor feeds is driving some innovative hardware and software developments, finds Peter Donaldson.
A bird in the hand
Utilising smaller categories of UAS in-theatre can lead to increased man-portability, ease of use and simplified training processes for operators. Claire Apthorp provides an overview of the entry-level market.
As industry anticipates a draft RfP for the USN’s UCLASS programme, RAdm Mat Winter, PEO Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons, explains to Beth Stevenson what potential bidders can expect.
