Datron has demonstrated the Aeryon SkyRanger with new 30x optical zoom camera payload as part of the daily waterborne demonstrations at the DSEI exhibition.

DSEI, Booth N4-320, London, UK September 17, 2015


Datron World Communications, Inc. (http://www.dtwc.com), a US-based leading supplier of military communications products, announced today the successful flight demonstrations of the Aeryon SkyRanger small unmanned aerial system (sUAS) during the opening days of the DSEI 2015 exhibition, leveraging the new 30x optical zoom camera payload to provide live video from above the waterborne presentation.

As a US-based distributor for Aeryon Labs, Inc. for over five years, Datron has delivered SkyRanger systems, training and support to numerous customers with the US DoD to date.

"Datron is a trusted and approved vendor with the US DoD for VTOL sUAS, working to ensure systems meet the demanding requirements of our customers" said Art Barter, President and CEO of Datron, "For example, we've developed our own antenna technology to provide Datron's customers much-improved RF links between the basestation and aerial platform, which ultimately provides better image quality and system reliability."

Over the past several months, Datron has also facilitated the SkyRanger integration with others to bring forward an integrated demonstration of mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) radio technology. The culmination of this integration was demonstrated successfully at the customer's test range just last month, with the productized integration just announced by Aeryon at DSEI.

Datron will continue to demonstrate the SkyRanger twice daily at the waterborne presentations throughout the week, and will be showcasing their entire military communications product line at booth N4-320 during DSEI 2015 in London, UK through Friday, September 18th.

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.
