Airborne-Unmanned 01.14.20: 1st US EHang Flt, $6M For Kratos, Unlawful Drone Ops

Also: Karma Firmware Update, Swift Tactical Systems, Drone-Based Home Security, Drone Swarms (Again)

EHang conducted its first-ever US trial flight of its two-seater passenger-grade AAV, the EHang 216 on Jan 7, as part of the North Carolina Transportation Summit hosted by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) on January 8 and 9.

This represents the first time that the EHang 216 has received flight approval from the FAA. While this was a non-passenger flight, EHang is working with the FAA to secure approval for a passenger trial flight of the EHang 216 in the near future. Kratos Defense & Security Solutions recently received approximately $6 million in high performance jet powered unmanned aerial target drone system orders, and related ancillary and spares support equipment. Work under these contract awards will be performed primarily in Kratos Unmanned Systems Division production facilities. Due to competitive, customer related and other considerations, no additional information will be provided related to this new contract award. Just what the drone community did NOT need... Jason Muzzicato of Bangor, PA pleaded guilty last month to possession of firearms by a person subject to a domestic violence protective order, possession of a destructive device, and knowingly operating an unregistered drone. The investigation revealed that Muzzicato possessed firearms and homemade bombs while under a domestic violence protective order. He also admitted to regularly flying drones—including a DJI Phantom 3 seized by law enforcement—that he knew he was required to register with FAA but had not done so. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
