EDITORIAL COMMENT
Best laid plans 

NEWS

• Patroller to replace French Army Sperwer
• UK rolls out unmanned vessel framework
• Global Hawk in U2 sensor tests
• Qatar signs Aerosonde deal

WATER POWER
Critical to naval force missions is adequate planning and preparation, with ‘ground study’ providing a vital element in route planning, making military hydrography hugely important to navies seeking safe passage of expensive vessels through blue-water and littoral environments. 

LEARNING CURVE
When tens of millions of dollars are spent on a UAV, it pays to make sure it is available for operations more often than not, particularly with the growing demand being placed on such platforms by militaries around the world. 

FETCH AND CARRY
The UAS industry is a byword for innovation, but while attention is often placed on platforms and payloads, developments in the launch and recovery of unmanned systems are helping create new opportunities and capabilities for eager operators. 

COMMERCIAL GAIN 
Small UAS are the tool of choice for the vast majority of commercial operators. While the sector faces technological challenges to its growth in a number of areas, senior figures are confident these can be overcome, stimulating further expansion for the fledgling industry. 

HIGH HOPES
The Northrop Grumman Global Hawk remains the only HALE UAV fully operational with a military user, the USAF, and has been for well over a decade. However, companies and militaries alike are partnering up in an attempt to tap into this market and utilise the capabilities it brings.

COST MANAGEMENT
Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works brain trust has a history of coming up with innovative solutions to complex problems. Richard Thomas speaks to Kevin Lewelling, manager of the company’s rapid operations programmes, about its approach in developing multirole, low-risk and affordable designs.
