Aurora Flight Sciences

Aurora Flight Sciences

The Panoptes eBumper is an integrated hardware and software system that helps prevent small drones from running into solid objects while operating in slower flight regimes. We'll put the eBumper through its paces and show you how it helps you fly with confidence in cluttered environments. Well-suited for inspection-related operations and indoor flight, eBumper is the first in the Panoptes series of products designed to ultimately give drones "all seeing" awareness of their flight environment.

   

CyPhy Works


Come see the CyPhy LVL 1, the drone that rewrites the book on multi-rotor flight. In addition to its novel form-- which allows the drone to fly levelly, never tilting-- it also offers the user an unrivaled experience, in safety, ease-of-use, and sharing. The most striking feature of the LVL 1 is its Level-Up technology. Level-Up is a combination of hardware and software that keeps the drone level. Other multi-rotor drones have to tilt in order to move. This creates swaying motion in the video which requires elaborate, expensive, and fragile mounts in order to stabilize. Worse, because in these drones the camera— the most expensive part of the drone— is the closest to the ground, any hard landings hit the camera first. Level-Up changes the game; it's a flatly better way to fly. The second most striking feature is the camera. LVL 1 comes with an integrated ultra-high quality wide-view camera, which pivots downward to give the user a full view of the landscape. The third most striking feature of the LVL 1 is its price. Kickstarting at only $500, it's less than half the price of its closest competitor. The LVL 1 has many additional features, such as hardpoints for mounting external hardware, multi-camera support for optimal stability, USB 3.1 recharging, real-time in-flight social network sharing, mobile app control, open-source flight control, and more.

   

Detroit Aircraft, LLC.

Detroit Aircraft, LLC.

Detroit Aircraft will be demonstrating the Lockheed Martin Indago, an industry leading, highly portable, long endurance quad rotor with dual color and thermal cameras. Detroit Aircraft is the distributor and manufacturer of the Indago, as well as other custom platforms. We will be demonstrating another of these in the form of our educational kit. A small quad rotor kit designed for students to assemble themselves and learn about multi-rotor flight.

   

Epson Electronics America, Inc.

Detroit Aircraft, LLC.

Epson Electronics America, Inc. will be highlighting the Moverio BT-200 smart glasses for use with drones at the Unmanned Systems Conference, May 5-7 in Atlanta, GA. Throughout the event, Epson will demonstrate how it can provide a hands-free, first-person view (FPV) from the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Drone video camera as a transparent display on the Moverio glasses. The transparency allows drone pilots to maintain a line of sight with their aircraft without having to look down at a smartphone or tablet to view the camera feed. With the transparent FPV image, pilots can also better avoid hazards such as trees, poles and buildings as well as more easily guide their crafts for desired camera views. In addition to the FPV image, drone pilots can also view on-screen data such as remaining battery life, satellite locked and recording operations. With a sleek, light design, the Epson Moverio BT-200’s advanced binocular optical system projects see-through overlays of digital content onto the real-world in the center of the smart glasses’ field of view. Powerful applications take advantage of its head-motion tracking, hands-free navigation and front-facing camera.

Lockheed Martin's Indago in flight

Indago Demonstrates New Digital Link, Lightweight Hand Controller, and New Payloads: Indago is a 5-pound, versatile quad rotor that can be applied to commercial, civil and military operations. Whether it’s supporting firefighting activities, monitoring wildlife patterns, aiding in search and rescue missions, inspecting pipelines and power lines, or helping farmers with precision agriculture, Indago increases its users’ situational awareness. Indago is engineered to have endurance of 45 minutes plus, a low noise signature, and is compact and collapsible. Indago can unfold and launch in a matter of minutes to provide a 360 degree eye-in-the-sky at ranges of 5 kilometers with a handheld controller. It features high quality electro-optic and infra-red imagery, and its payloads are easily swapped for various missions. Indago is able to operate in winds exceeding 30 mph, and in temperatures ranging from -30 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition to the aircraft, the Indago ground control station includes a touchscreen hand controller that is rugged and weather resistant, or a laptop-based Virtual Controller.
