Aero-News: Quote of the Day (05.17.22)

Hawaii May Be First To Make Drone Fishing Illegal

The Hawaiian fishing community is awaiting the outcome of Governor David Ige’s actions regarding the use of drones to fish in or near the state’s waters. Mr. Ige, Governor of Hawaii is expected to either vote yes or veto Senate Bill SB2065 which had already passed Hawaii’s House of Representatives and its Senate earlier this month. SB2065 permits the use of drones for “simple reconnaissance”, and those wishing to use a drone for the approved purpose must then apply to the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) for a permit.

What’s The Pentagon Cooking? Drones!

Pentagon Testing Microwave Systems To Neutralize Drone Swarm Threats

Science fiction is slowly becoming science fact as the U.S. Pentagon’s Joint Counter-Small Unmanned Systems Office recently completed a round of demonstrations using high-power microwave technology to simultaneously neutralize multiple drone threats. In mid-February 2022, Pentagon was involved in the testing and evaluation of Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-sUAS). In late 2019, the US Army was tasked with running point on the C-sUAS operations, and twice yearly (spring and fall) conducts tests and fixes gaps for the next run.

ATR And Safran Land Smart

ATR And Safran Hard Landing Diagnostics With RTS

ATR and Safran Landing Systems have announced the arrival of the ‘Smart Lander’ a landing-gear diagnostics system that gathers and analyses data to optimize repair activities and potentially accelerate the aircrafts’ return to service. To clarify, the ‘Smart Lander’, unlike ‘AutoLand’, does not interact in any way with the navigation, flight, or landing of the aircraft. It is simply a diagnostic service, perhaps a more appropriate name would be ‘Hard Landing Diagnostics and Return to Service Analysis’, but perhaps not as flashy or eye-catching as Smart Land.
