Sinclair Launches First Academic Publication Focusing on UAS

Dayton, OH - Sinclair College's National UAS Training and Certification Center is pleased to announce the sponsorship and launch of a new academic journal tailored specifically to the industry of unmanned aerial systems (UAS).

The Journal of Unmanned Aerial Systems, the first academic publication to focus on UAS, is hosted online at www.uasjournal.org. The Journal publishes peer-reviewed articles along with technical industry papers, making a blended publication that serves as a public forum for sharing new concepts, identifying solutions, and recognizing key strategic thinkers that are addressing the difficult issues facing the UAS industry today as well as in the future.

"This new Journal brings together a significant number of top-tier organizations and talented individuals to create a timely and focused publication for presenting new UAS research and best practices in an accessible format," said Deb Norris, Vice President of Workforce Development and Corporate Services. "As a nationally established provider of UAS training and education, Sinclair has drawn on its network of professionals to convene Journal board members and reviewers from across industry, government and academia."

The Journal accepts submissions of peer-reviewed articles, technical papers, abstracts, book reviews and other content, all of which will be available for free public access online. The Publishing Board anticipates that the Journal will typically be issued twice each year with UAS content including topics relating to the air vehicles, ground control stations, communications, navigation, human performance, sensors, legislation, training, operations, data exploitation and other relevant subject matter.

Multiple organizations are involved in assisting with the effort, including a selection of Journal Publishing and Editorial Board members and Reviewers from industry, government and academic institutions. More than 30 faculty and staff are represented from organizations including Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, University of North Dakota, University of Florida, Air Force Research Laboratory, Air Force Institute of Technology, University of Florida, University of Dayton, The Ohio State University, Wright State University, Ohio University, Northwestern Michigan University, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Michigan Tech Research Institute, Walden University, Altavian, Woolpert, CAMO, Riverside Research, and The Perduco Group.

"We are thankful to all of the volunteers serving in Board and Reviewer roles that have made the Journal a reality" said Dr. Andrew Shepherd, Director for UAS at Sinclair and the Journal's Managing Editor. "Their professionalism, commitment to quality, and continued support has made this launch and the future success of the Journal possible."

Sinclair College is recognized as a national leader in UAS, supported by world-class partnerships, cutting-edge technology, and custom training programs designed to drive the expansion of the UAS industry. Sinclair's curriculum focuses on real-world applications of emerging UAS and sensor technologies through classroom and online instruction, simulation and hands-on vehicle operations.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
