Lockheed Martin CDL Systems's UAV software to promote collaboration and information sharing amongst allies

SMi Reports: Lockheed Martin CDL Systems to showcase UAV's technologies aim at promoting collaboration and information sharing at SMi's UAV Technology Central & Eastern Europe, 27-28th September

In an increasingly high threat environment, nations must learn to work together to ensure strong and ready alliances. Data sharing is an instrumental component for this collaboration and can assist in fostering relationships and improve overall know-how.

In a drive to promote information's sharing, Lockheed Martin CDL Systems are providing software support systems for UAV platforms which are used to control, monitor, process and disseminate the large data that are collected. These technologies allow defence forces to easily create actionable intelligence that can be shared amongst allies.

Speaking at UAV Technology Central and Eastern Europe this September, Lockheed Martin CDL Systems' John Molberg, will provide in depth details about these support systems and explain how they can help nations to work together. John will explain how interoperability can be a force multiplier and how training can be minimised by making ground stations common. He will also discuss how these UAVs technology can be used to interpret big data and share amongst allies.

Other topics discussed will include:

• National capability developments updates from US Army Europe and Canadian Army
• Discuss future requirements, latest procurement and development plans from nation such as the Czech Republic, Estonia, Slovenia and Macedonia Armed Forces
• Explore the use of UAV for reconnaissance and surveillance
• A spotlight on UAV technology featuring the German Armed Forces' role in the development of Heron TP

Other notable presenters include: Bundeswehr, Canadian Army, Czech Armed Forces, Czech University of Defence, Estonian MoD, Formion SA, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Latvian MoD, Lockheed Martin Canada CDL Systems, Macedonian Army, Ministry of Transport Czech Republic, NSPA, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, PA Consulting, Slovenian MoD, Swedish Defence University, US Army Europe and much more…

In addition, the conference also features an exclusive pre-conference workshop on "Proposal of UAS Training Programs for Territorial Defence Forces" hosted by Justyna Zdanowska, President, GEO-UAV taking place on the 26th September 2017.

The workshop provides an overview of activities concerning market development of emerging new types of trainings for UAS operators in Poland. It includes proposals, actions that have already been taken and tendencies related to both trainings and technology that might be possibly involved in the development of UAS trainings for units of Defence Forces.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
