Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has deployed a robotic instrument that will monitor red tide offshore Maine and carry out analysis on board, so people don't have to collect samples and manually process them.
A forward-deployed cell from U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan has outfitted iRobot's 310-SUGV with a new attachment that soldiers say increases their safety from the danger of roadside bombs.
Unmanned systems are drawing increasing interest from not only police and first responders but journalists and environmentalists alike, although privacy fears must be addressed and operational rules created, according to speakers at a Tuesday conference.

SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2013 Highlights Vital Role of Photonics for Defense and Commercial Applications
Capabilities essential to the work of first responders, military forces, researchers, and manufacturers were on display last week at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing (DSS), the largest annual international meeting featuring light-based technologies for defense and commercial applications. DSS 2013 drew more than 6,000 registered attendees and nearly 500 companies to Baltimore, illustrating the essential role the event plays in the development of mission-critical, dual-use technologies such as night-vision and thermal-imaging devices used to thwart terrorism, and chemical-sensing systems for rapid risk assessment in man-made disasters.
Roboteq launches a kickstarter project aimed at creating an amazingly powerful Robot Navigation Computer for its low price and size, and targetting applications in sea, land or airborne unmanned robotics vehicles applications, as well as in more traditional automation and machine control systems

Coral ecosystems support around 500,000,000 people, but are severely threatened; the Coralbots team aim to revolutionize how such threats are tackled. Their Kickstarter campaign (closing May 26th) seeks individuals and corporations who wish to make a lasting positive impact on the marine environment, offering ways for individuals, schools and corporations to be directly involved.
Hamilton has collaborated with kit manufacturer MACHEREY-NAGEL® to create the Genomic STARlet™, an automated liquid handling workstation that extracts nucleic acids from biological samples and purifies PCR products in a non-IVD environment.
More than a century ago, an estimated 180,000 female Atlantic sturgeon arrived from the coast in the spring to spawn in the Delaware River and fishermen sought their caviar as a lucrative export to Europe. Overfishing contributed to steep population declines, however, and today numbers have dwindled to fewer than 300 adults.

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.
