EDITORIAL COMMENT
Playing by the rules 

NEWS
• Zephyr in mind for Roke data link integration
• Northrop confirmed for DARPA UAV project
• Germany to lease IAI Heron TPs
• Royal Navy’s lean RIBs could run unmanned

ROTARY REVOLUTION?
Unmanned helicopters will transform the way naval operations are conducted, allowing warships to project over-the-horizon ISR and strike into areas considered too dangerous for manned aircraft, with much greater endurance. However, doubts persist over whether the rotary-wing UAV offers a more affordable route towards an embarked aviation capability. 

OUT AND ABOUT
Outside the EOD role, the development of UGVs continues to progress slowly by comparison with rapidly evolving UAVs, but there are clear signs of progress towards deploying the technology for perimeter and border security duties. 

MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS
Intelligence gathered by UAS is only useful if it can be disseminated and analysed. Increasing levels of sensor sophistication and fidelity are placing an ever greater burden on onboard data storage and transmission capabilities, creating challenges for developers. 

OPEN SKIES?
While some well-known companies have announced their intention to fill the skies with UAVs making package deliveries and providing broadband connectivity, the regulatory reality is somewhat different. 

SMALLER GAPS, GROWING CAPABILITY
The Latin American market contains a diverse mix of indigenous and imported unmanned capabilities and services, but the ratios for some nations are shifting.

GETTING CREATIVE
Nicholas Hill, defence and security director at Plextek Consulting, speaks to Richard Thomas about the sort of innovative solutions that must be found to advance automation, communications and active camouflage capabilities.
