EDITORIAL COMMENT
Artificial ingredients

NEWS
• FAA introduces commercial SUAS rules
• Proteus progress proclaimed
• Hans-free Solo readied for UW2016

BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED
When a UAV runs out of energy, militaries lose a vital surveillance asset that does not cost just money, but lives. That is why many companies are constantly looking at improving battery and power technology, especially when it comes to getting more for less.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES
As their mission set expands, precision navigation technology is key to the successful deployment of UUVs.

EXCESS BAGGAGE
Militaries worldwide are demanding more from UGVs, expecting them to carry a wider array of payloads for a broad range of missions at a reasonable cost. This is driving the evolution of the sector and prompting focus on interoperability and common system architectures.

TALKING TACTICS
Industry and militaries are seeking to extend the capabilities of their growing fleets of tactical UAVs in a rapidly evolving operating environment.

OCEAN OBSERVERS
Providing additional range and capability for vessels and up-close surveillance where manned patrol aircraft fail to reach, unmanned technology is continuing to develop, enhancing maritime C4ISR capability.

REGION REGULATION
While unmanned activity within the Middle East generally involves military operations by foreign powers, opportunities for commercial providers are increasing as the indigenous capability for both sectors expands.

INTERVIEW
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
While the use of unmanned aircraft is an undeniable necessity of modern warfare, industry is developing various UCAVs without the guarantee of future success. Former RAF Air Marshal Iain McNicoll, fellow at the Royal Aeronautical Society, gives his views on the realities of their capability and the likelihood of such a platform entering service.
