It’s the first ever publication to focus entirely on providing independent coverage of the engineering of uncrewed systems. Published bi-monthly, this technical resource probes the cutting- edge projects of today to provide in- depth research insights, using rigorous investigation backed by professional peer review and critical analysis. In order to seizemore than your fair share of the fresh opportunities being created in this exciting sphere, ensure that UncrewedSystems Technology is part of yourmarketing plan. PlatformOne In each issue the news section is focused on technological development.Business and politics are only covered in so far as they impact directly on engineering solutions. From the outset the publication has dealt in hard science. UncrewedSystems Insights Insights reveal the latest technological advances across all uncrewed vehicle platforms, aswell as a number of specific industry applications.UAVs,UGVs, UUVs,USVs andUncrewedSpace Vehicleswill all take their place in the spotlight, aswell as sectors utilising this burgeoning technology includingMining,Agriculture, Surveillance, Inspection, Transportation&Security applications.Our technical resource provides invaluable knowledge for engineers. UncrewedVehicleDossiers&Digests Each issue contains at least onemain dossier and one digest offering offering an incredibly detailed look at a high profile uncrewed vehicle project, revealingmany secrets of the technology that are simply not reported anywhere else. PowerplantDossiers Theworld of uncrewed systems has created new requirements for small internal combustion engines and electricmotors, to the extent that currently there is far from agreement as to themost appropriate technical solution. A host of different approaches are being exploited, fromWankel rotary to reciprocating, from battery electric to fuel cell and allmanner of hybrids. Each issue’s powerplant dossiers explores in depth one of the diverse innovative power units at the forefront of today’s uncrewed revolution.
