Airborne-UnCrewed 09.20.22: 2022 MultiGP Champ's, 5-Yr Sat Disposal, VAPOR 55 MX

Also: Eco Caravan Battery, Rim-Driven Hydrogen Motors, GlobalX, Commercial Space Mishap Investigations

The popularity of UAV racing was compellingly evinced by the 710 drone-pilots who vied to enter the 2022  MultiGP Drone Racing Championship—a six-day event to be held from 18 through 23 October at the No Quarter Ranch drone field in Citrus Springs, Florida.

The FCC aims to reduce the disposal window for decommissioned orbital equipment: Up to 5 years after end of service, down from the more leisurely 25-year timeframe currently in effect. The Federal Communications Commission released a fact sheet regarding the incipient issue of space debris above as the commercial space race heats up. Currently, after decades of governmental and commercial space exploitation, Earth has more than 4,800 satellites floating in orbit, both operational and decommissioned. AeroVironment has announced the launch of its next-generation VAPOR UAV—the VAPOR 55 MX—a helicopter-style machine optimized for defense, commercial, and industrial missions. As drones go, the VAPOR 55 MX  measures 6-feet by 2.2-feet by 2.1-feet; massing a stout 65-pound maximum (military) gross takeoff weight (MGTOW); and offering users a usable payload of up to 22-pounds. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
