As unmanned vehicles become more powerful and complex, their electronics payloads must adapt to match new mission objectives. This often forces aerospace and defense system integrators to push for reductions in size, weight, power, and cost of on-board line replaceable units. Such was the case for a new variant of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in development for the United States government.
The Dahua Ticket to China program, on March 19th, wrapped up yet another round of events in its journey to bring high performing partners from all around the globe to Dahua headquarters in Hangzhou, China. Ticket to China program aims to enhance mutual cooperation by enabling customers to learn more about Dahua and its latest technologies, products and solutions, as well as the country and its culture. On March 11th and March 18th respectively, two delegations from Poland and Denmark arrived at China as part of Dahua’s second year of holding the Ticket to China program, where they kicked off a new year of touring Dahua and the country.
Dahua, the large Chinese IP-camera manufacturer, has taken to the sky in delivering an unmanned aerial vehicle —drone— to its offering of security oriented products. Dahua is looking to distinguish their drone as being an industry-level commercial device geared for public safety operations. This is a new direction for Dahua and one that has been undertaken by other IP-camera manufacturers. What distinguishes a Dahua Drone from other Civilian UAVs is the mission it is positioned for: to undertake safety from above. There are in fact two levels of drones, consumer-level and industry-level. Dahua Drones belong to the latter group.
The drone will aid the department in a wide range of uses, such as providing an aerial view of HAZMAT incidents and major traffic crash scenes, which helps with investigation and incident reconstruction; having a bird’s eye view during search and rescue missions, or when searching for missing children; tracking an aggressor during any critical incident, such as one involving the police department’s Special Response Team or during a hostage situation; tracking a suspect on the run; traffic monitoring, such as photographing or videoing an intersection where accidents frequently occur, examining storm water drainage issues, school traffic dynamics, roadway construction projects, traffic flow patterns, or any issues that may impact roadway safety.
Airport investigators, fresh after marking the 9/11 anniversary, are gathering in the GTA to share information on the latest security threats to the flying public. Police said threats made on social media against Pearson airport, other airports, and the threat of attacks by unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drones, are some of the issues facing investigators at a conference next month.
Market Reports Online Market Reports Online Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), colloquially known as drones, have attracted criticism given their role in military operations. However, there is a burgeoning market for commercial applications, with the US government asking the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) to draft plans for civilian airspace integration by 2015, as required by the […]
The state of Texas has made it a crime to take photographs of someone’s property without their consent using a UAV. That new law went into effect September 1, 2013. The law stemmed from an incident in which someone flying an RC airplane captured images of a creek apparently filled with pig’s blood. The photos, […]
