Airborne-UnCrewed 03.01.22: AUVSI 'Uncrewed', SAR Drone, Pilot Sentenced

Also: Hydrogen-Powered Turbofan, Outgoing FAA Administrator, Wisk, Northrop Grumman

AUVSI, or the now former Association for UnManned Vehicle Systems, has announced its name change into the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems in order "to reflect ongoing efforts to promote gender inclusivity," effective immediately.

The association says the change will bring additional talent in the business. “In this groundbreaking industry, we know that inclusivity accelerates innovation,” said Mignonne Hollis, Chair of the new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion advisory group. An integrated, communications-seeking drone has been developed for Teledyne FLIR Defense drones. The Robotics Centre Echo Search and Rescue payload enables the drone to canvass areas of wilderness while attempting to connect to mobile devices of those lost or injured individuals being searched for. Once contact is made, an immediate line of communication can be made, allowing for rapid response and rescue. A drone pilot received his sentence for his part in "dive bombing" firefighters at a nearby Salem, Virginia fire station this week. The incident occurred for "close to 10 minutes" in July 2019, when the pilot flew his unregistered drone around the fire station to chase police and firefighters. When they retreated into the building, he maneuvered it into the vehicle bay to follow. The firefighters sprung their trap then, closing the doors and leading the drone to strike the supports and crash to the floor. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
