Editorial Comment
Editor Richard Thomas discusses the place of the pilot in the unmanned systems era.

Northrop pushes for UK Triton buy A review of some of the latest developments from around the unmanned systems industry.

Legal aid
Law enforcement has been one sector where the application of small UAS has helped boost capabilities and keep more personnel out of harm’s way. Richard Thomas looks at what systems are being purchased and the forces utilising them.

Personnel development
The US is currently facing a shortage of suitably trained UAV pilots and operators. Beth Maundrill examines the current training environment as well as proposed strategies to tackle this issue.

Local businesses
A number of East Asian countries are making strides in their indigenous UAV manufacturing capabilities. Gordon Arthur reviews the respective industry activities.

Strengthening ties
The value of an unmanned asset is directly related to the power of the data links within the overall network. Angus Batey assesses the current limitations of the technology and what industry is doing to help push capabilities further.

What goes up…
Greater proliferation of UAS brings with it a concomitant threat to people, infrastructure and security, as a number of recent high-profile incidents have highlighted. Grant Turnbull looks at industry’s response in the shape of sensor and disruptor systems designed to protect and defend against such aircraft flown by hostile, malicious or negligent operators.

A great deal of noise is made about the growth of the global UAS market, but activity in Latin America often flies under the radar. Richard Thomas speaks to Sebastián Zepeda, general manager of Delair-Tech Latin America, on opportunities across the region.
