drone's role

A new technology may encourage us to think about drones as not just scouts or weapons platforms, but as useful tools. Small bodies that...

The U.S. military hopes that common marine microorganisms (single-celled forms, bacteria, etc.) might be genetically engineered into living wires to signal the passage of...
drone

A fruit-fly-inspired flying robot recently developed will potentially aid not only insect research, but its exceptional flying qualities open up new drone applications. This...
frozen water

Diving in icy water is extremely dangerous to humans. As more Arctic sea lanes open up and the US Navy increases its readiness to...

iHLS is delighted to announce the Conference and Exhibition on Unmanned Systems and Robotics - AUS&R 2018, the leading event held for the sixth...
chemical warfare agents

Offering an innovative, low-cost and rapid means of threat agent detection, a new sensing technique may offer significant advantages for deployed warfighters. Researchers from...
drone

Drones have their limitations. A drone can be seen and heard which is counterproductive to the purpose of surveillance drones. People on the ground...
insect-sized flying robot

An insect-sized flying robot could help with time-consuming tasks like surveying crop growth on large farms or sniffing out gas leaks. These robots soar...
Squids

As it turns out, squids can make quite the contribution to military innovation. A research published recently by Northeastern University professor Leila Deravi demonstrates...
Egyptian Fruit Bat Using Echolocation

New research from the University of Washington suggests that the Egyptian fruit bat is using similar techniques to those preferred by modern-day military and...
drone defense

Next-generation drones, built to track and hunt other drones, might be designed using hunting principles used by one of nature's most capable predators. Researchers...
sensor

A “quantum material” that mimics a shark’s ability to detect the minute electric fields of small prey has been tested. with potential applications from...
spider-like drone

One of the challenges drone developers face is the flight time: the ability to stay in the air for long enough to be useful,...
search and rescue operations

Search and rescue operations in disaster-stricken areas often lack information about the terrain and the actual situation. A team of researchers at Worcester Polytechnic...
