Airborne-Unmanned 11.26.19: Leonardo Invests, WavDrone Flt Test, Drone Fine

Also: Terra Drone Indonesia, FLIR Intro's StormCaster, AMA Expo's Canceled, Sensefly Partnerships

Leonardo is investing in Skydweller Aero Inc., a U.S./Spanish start-up specializing in large-scale solar-powered unmanned air systems.

The initiative will result in the development and deployment of the Skydweller drone, a  fully electric unmanned aircraft capable of carrying large payloads with unlimited range and ultra-persistent endurance. Skydweller has the capability to operate from existing airbases around the world, deploy thousands of miles away to areas of high need, and remain overhead for orders of magnitude longer than current aircraft. The Skydweller project builds on an aircraft that successfully circumnavigated the globe in 2016. WavDrone has announced that they will begin comprehensive flight testing of its carbon-nanotube drones and drone intercept technologies at Griffiss International Airport, formerly Griffiss Air Force Base in Rome, NY. Griffiss International Airport is one of just seven FAA-designated UAV test sites in the United States and is responsible to the FAA and NASA to supervise operations for UAS testing. The facility is part of New York's 50-mile UAS corridor between Syracuse and Rome, NY, facilitating BVLOS testing, thus enabling the safe integration of UAS testing in U.S. airspace. ometimes, members of our own communities are our own worst enemies. A California drone pilot, flying illegally in Las Vegas, NV, lost control of his Phantom 3 only to have the vehicle fly off an imp-act terrain to the side of a runway at busy McCarran International Airport... one of the busiest in the Western USA. Reuben Burciaga was attempting to shoot video of a local downtown Las Vegas landmark, in violation of the regs, when the vehicle departed control, and flew over 2 miles away to KLAS at altitudes as high as 450 feet. Burciaga seemed none too concerned about the safety and legal violations... even posting complaints to social media about losing the drone in the controlled airspace surrounding McCarran. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
