Microsoft chooses Aeryon sUAS to demonstrate leading-edge aerial image and data capture within the Microsoft Advanced Patrol Platform (MAPP)

Chicago, IL October 26, 2015 -- Aeryon Labs, the leading provider of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) for military, public safety and commercial operators worldwide, today announced a technology partnership with Microsoft to include Aeryon SkyRanger within the new Microsoft Advanced Patrol Platform (MAPP) vehicle.


MAPP will connect its drivers to an unprecedented amount of helpful and easy-to-navigate information. Currently, patrol officers spend vast amounts of valuable time bound to their cars, clicking between windows on bulky, often dated laptops. MAPP will consolidate the many elements officers must keep track of - providing dispatch information, driving directions, suspect history, a voice activated license plate reader, a missing persons list, location-based crime bulletins and statistics, a feed of shift reports and more.

For first responders, surveillance teams and investigators, high-quality aerial imagery provides the real-time intelligence needed to assess a situation immediately, ensure safety on the ground, and capture detailed evidence and forensics. By integrating aerial images from Aeryon sUAS with other cutting-edge hardware and software solutions, the MAPP program sets a new technological standard in policing and helps officers operate with better awareness, efficiency, mobility and safety.

"Law enforcement organizations throughout the world rely on Aeryon sUAS to collect aerial intelligence wherever and whenever they need it," commented Dave Kroetsch, President and CEO of Aeryon Labs Inc. "Including SkyRanger within the MAPP vehicle rounds out the comprehensive suite of technologies and highlights the value of aerial intelligence for ground-based personnel."

To learn more about this integrated solution, visit Aeryon Labs (Booth #1836) and see the MAPP vehicle (Booth #5211) at IACP 2015, October 25-27th.

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.
