The U.S. Army is currently working with the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) industry to allow for a remote U.S. pilot to effectively execute high-risk, tactical missions from the air.
Leveraging advanced UAV technology for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), the U.S. Army is using UAS to reduce vulnerability of enemy attacks on human troops, as well as improve video quality for enhanced accuracy in surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
Advanced ISR technology for military drones will be heavily dependent on crucial motion control engineering and strategic mechatronic component integration within the UAS.
Other technologies that will be particularly critical for the advancement of military UAS include enhancements in:
- Intelligent Flight Control
- Intelligent Orientation Control
- Points of Interest Flight
- Video Stabilization
- Quiet Operation
- Resistance to Shock & Vibration
- Resistance to Temperature Extremes/Harsh Environments
Through strategic partnerships with companies specializing in advanced motion control engineering and electromechanical engineering, the U.S. Army will be paving the way for other military branches to leverage UAV technology for their branch-specific missions.
US Motion provides custom mechatronics and motion control technology solutions for ground-breaking UAV manufacturers around the world, including UAV manufacturers for the military.
