What's in a name?

• Blackjack gamble pays off with full-rate decision
• Spain nears Predator B club membership
• Watchkeeper all-weather capability 'not true'
• Anti-UAV system reaches milestone
• West Point maps new drone course
• Japan ponders long-range AUV system
• Are we at peak drone?

Current trends indicate that not only is the number of weaponised UAVs growing, but countries purchasing and manufacturing such a capability is on an upward trajectory.

Once seen as a minor developer, China is now becoming a major player in the field of unmanned designs with global demand and the nation's army keen to embrace new technologies.

Many US programmes are under way to develop expendable swarming UAVs to perform complex missions in difficult-to-access environments. This will also require the technology to provide an aircraft able to carry multiple autonomous platforms.

Powering underwater unmanned systems presents a number of unique design considerations for manufacturers, with a range of new options now coming to the surface.

AUV manufacturer Hydroid is transforming its business to meet the demands of a diverse and growing customer base.

UAV package delivery is fast becoming a reality but the industry faces many restrictions and future legislation is uncertain.

Twenty-five years as an air warfare officer in the Royal Navy and an OBE for running the service's first ever live mine countermeasures operation using UAVs, AUVs and ROVs in the Gulf, have given David Hunkin a fair amount of unmanned experience to call on in his new role as head of UAS at Centrik.
