Airborne-Unmanned 11.20.18: Solar-Powered Odysseus, QF-16 Delivered, FT Aviator Controller

Also: Hover 2, TX Man Charged After Drone Shooting, ZF First In Germany, AviSight, Inc.

Aurora continues its nearly 30-year legacy of advancing autonomous systems with Odysseus, a solar-powered autonomous aircraft. Odysseus is an ultra-long endurance, high-altitude platform utilizing advanced solar cells and built with lightweight materials. Odysseus can effectively fly indefinitely – all powered by clean, renewable energy. The inspiration for Odysseus started with the Daedalus Project that ultimately set records in distance and for human-powered flight in 1988 with a 72-mile flight between the Greek islands of Crete and Santorini.
