Airborne-Unmanned 10.08.19: UPS Certified!, UAV v Fugitive, Shapeshifting Drone

Also: DroneResponders Program, Drone Detection Technology, UAV Herbicide Spraying, Hydrogen-Powered 3D-Printed Drone

It’s a first... The FAA has awarded air carrier and operator certification to a UAS delivery company, UPS Flight Forward.

“This is a big step forward in safely integrating unmanned aircraft systems into our airspace, expanding access to healthcare in North Carolina and building on the success of the national UAS Integration Pilot Program to maintain American leadership in unmanned aviation,” said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao. A human trafficker who escaped from a Chinese prison camp in 2002 was captured recently by Chinese authorities who used a drone to help locate the fugitive. Chinese authorities announced the capture of Song Jiang, 63, several days ago. He was being held for trafficking in women and children, according to state media reports. Jiang had been living in a tiny cave isolated from other people for several years. Unmanned... and out of this world! Mini robots that can roll, fly, float and swim, then morph into a single machine? Together they form Shapeshifter, a developing concept for a transformational vehicle to explore treacherous, distant worlds. In a dusty robotics yard at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, the Shapeshifter team is testing a 3D-printed prototype of this unusual explorer. A contraption that looks like a drone encased in an elongated hamster wheel rolls across the yard, then splits in half. Once separated, the two halves rise on small propellers, effectively becoming flying drones for aerial exploration. The team imagines a series of up to 12 robots that could transform into a swimming probe or a team of cave explorers. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
