Unmanned Systems Canada Conference 2013

ING Robotic Aviation to Showcase Robotic Aircraft Systems

ING Robotic Aviation will be showcasing their robotic aircraft systems, at this year's 2013 Unmanned Systems Canada Conference. The conference is an annual event that takes place this year from November 12-14 in Vancouver, British Columbia. As the leading event for the unmanned systems industry in Canada, the association welcomes dozens of international exhibitors and focuses on connecting important players within the sector.


Serenity, a fixed wing aircraft, will be the centerpiece of the booth. With its extended range and long endurance capabilities this platform is ideal for a variety of applications including pipeline monitoring, environmental surveying and aerial surveillance. Furthermore, the Serenity system was recently sold to iFMS, a Chilean company, for forest fire fighting.

ING Robotic's Responder, a small rotary wing aircraft, will also be on display. With it's ability to be quickly deployed and vertical takeoff and landing capability (VTOL) this platform can be used for applications such as critical infrastructure inspections. The Responder was recently sold to a company in East Africa for surveillance purposes.

Delegates and media are asked to visit the ING Robotic Aviation at booth #10 in the Exhibition Hall at the Westin Bayshore from November 13-14, 2013. Company executives, including CEO/CTO and founder of Unmanned Systems Canada, Ian Glenn, will be available for interviews during this time.

Additionally, Mr. Glenn will be presenting in an Afternoon Breakout Session. The presentation will focus on explaining why having this industry association is of great importance for Canada. Attendees and media are encouraged to attend this presentation in Stream 3, Salon F of the Exhibition Hall at 2:00 pm on Wednesday November 13, 2013.

"Robotic aircraft is the future, and the future is now", states, Ian Glenn. "It's about getting the right information, into the right hands, at the right time."

ING Robotic Aviation delivers airborne sensing solutions and much more. We developed our skills through extensive operational surveillance work with the Canadian military. From these beginnings, we are now providing commercial services across Canada and internationally. Our clients are discovering whole new uses and capabilities for aerial surveillance. We are at the forefront of a disruptive technological and operational change, focused on reinventing aviation.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
