While uncrewed aircraft are busy helping to put out these fires without putting crews at risk, the latest autonomous marine technology is tracking currents and ocean warming. The latest Saildrone USVs are using Nvidia’s AI technology for local processing (page 6) while we have an in-depth look at the Bluebottle USV’s technology on page 48. Power management technologies detailed on page 38 are helping uncrewed systems make use of solar, wind and wave power, extending the range and mission times of autonomous systems. At the same time, a new generation of CubeSat satellites are monitoring the Earth’s surface from space, and the latest swarm algorithms are being tested in orbit with autonomous operation to help improve our understanding of the processes involved. This is brought together with the latest technologies for all kinds of uncrewed systems covered in our second report from the Xponential 2023 exhibition, on page 74, even to the extent of emerging quantum navigation technology for higher accuracy and lower power consumption, on page 114.
