UAS in the News
Drone detection and tracking with counter-unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS) capability
Naval Surface Warfare Center - Crane Division
Patent license agreements explained (with example)
Those who wish to be informed of an unauthorized drone presence and its activity need to scan, track, intercept video feed, acquire line of bearing, and slew-to-cue (integration of radar or other target detection device that tells a PTZ camera where to point) for identification and defeat of the intruding drone.
Navy researchers have developed such a system utilizing the specific frequency transmitted from a drone, dramatically increasing the probability of detection and resulting in a more reliable system.
The patented technology is available via patent license agreement to companies that would make, use, or sell it commercially.

Upcoming UASCI Events
DronePort Network Seminar
In the seminar, you will learn how droneports are becoming epicenters for UAS activities by serving as nodes for testing, training and commercial drone operations by obtaining permissions for flight. These facilities are also providing housing, maintenance, fueling, piloting of fleets and more.
The third annual Midwest Big Data Hub
All-Hands Meeting will serve as the culmination for the National Science Foundation project dedicated to bringing academics and commercial operators together around the topic of big data for agriculture.
UAS Tech Forum

Drone operators explore machine learning
Smart drones can have practical uses for farmers who use precision-ag techniques, as well as those employing more old-school methods. Indeed, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and a better understanding of scalability are giving drone operators the capability to gather information at the millimetre level – and interpret it for farm clients in a practical way.

Legislators question delay of remote ID rule for drones
Air Transport World Online
The leadership of the US House Transportation Committee has called on the US Department of Transportation to hasten its regulatory process to require that drones be capable of being identified from the ground. In a July 2 letter, lawmakers urged Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao "to dedicate the necessary staff and resources for the rapid publication of a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM)" on the so-called Remote ID requirement for small drones
New app aims to automate drones for good
Phys.org & Cranfield University (UK)
Researchers at Cranfield University have developed a smartphone app which can connect with off-the-shelf drones and send them to autonomously inspect multiple locations using coordinates received by SMS text message. Controlling drones in this way could be useful for a variety of applications in the future including the collection of crop health data in specific locations and searching for missing persons.
The pocket-sized drone changing the way the military operates
Gold Coast Bulletin
One pocket-sized device is slowly changing the way militaries across the world wage war against their enemies. The Black Hornet nano drone weighs just 32g and is 16.8cm long, making it one of the smallest systems of its kind.
Robotic fighter jets could soon join military pilots on combat missions
NBC News, Palm Springs CA

Parachute validation: An unlikely new step on the road to drone delivery
As the commercial drone industry is struggling against patchwork international regulation, a few organizations have cropped up to provide validation for the industry. One of those, called Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research is a New York based nonprofit coalition of private and public entities. Among other consulting and testing, it provides validation for drone parachute systems.
