The NASA Frontier Development Lab (FDL) is bringing together talented individuals in planetary science, data analytics and deep-learning to aid in asteroid defense. UVIONIX Aerospace has agreed to provide an adaptable drone platform and technical expertise as part of the FDL learning experience. Based on the company’s ALPHA UAV multipurpose platform, UVIONIX team has provided a highly customized vehicle developed to support FDL workshop projects.
“We are excited to take part in the NASA FDL project and believe we can substantially contribute,” Yordan Iskrev, Co-founder and CEO of UVIONIX.
Researchers believe that using advanced UAV technology could drastically speed up the process of finding, retrieving and analyzing asteroid fragments reaching the ground.
“From the 8 or so large meteorite falls recovered around the world annually, only a few are tracked coming in. Using drones may help recover the smaller falls that are tracked in our camera networks,” said SETI Institute meteor astronomer Peter Jenniskens, Core Mentor at FDL. “Increasing the number of tracked falls will point us to where in the asteroid belt meteorites of different type originate.”
The project is hosted at the SETI Institute in Mountain View under the supervision of the FDL co-Director James Parr and SETI Institute CEO, Bill Diamond.
UVIONIX will be showing prototypes of its:
at the XPONENTIAL show in New Orleans.
nSKY to deliver Small Packages within 6 mile radius
Preliminary flight and endurance testing set the target for 6 mile radius from takeoff to landing. 6 miles could allow a centrally located vendor in San Francisco to cover the whole city proper and reach Oakland beachfront.
UVIONIX Aerospace Corporation will participate in one of the leading trade shows for Drones and UAV Systems in the United States. Visit us at Booth #363 on the XPONENTIAL 2016.
Formerly known as AUVSI Expo, the XPONENTIAL show will take place in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center In NEW ORLEANS from 2nd to 5th May 2016. The event is organized by The AUVSI Association (Association For Unmanned Vehicle Systems International). More information you can find here.
Hope To See You There!
