1:45 空気力学的に機能化されたアンテナとUAS(無人航空機システム)群のビーム形成

gregory huffGregory Huff, Ph.D., Director, Huff Research Group, Associate Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Texas A&M University

Unmanned autonomous vehicles, sensors, and systems (UAS) have become indispensable tools in research, industry, defense, and public safety. This has in turn highlighted a growing need for wireless connectivity in UAS that is ubiquitous, reliable, scalable, and secure. Multifunctional antennas and adaptive arrays have arisen as a means to physically enable these orientation-aware systems since they can provide enhanced communication and sensing capabilities in operationally dynamic application spaces and electromagnetically harsh environments. This talk will highlight our research in radiating systems to support UAS that are defined by their ability to facilitate reversible and coordinated changes in more than one physical and/or operational modality. This includes opportunistic beamforming in random arrays, synchronization of UAS in dynamic clusters, the role of reconfigurable antennas in motion-dynamic and cognitive systems, and the development of applications (apps) and peripheral systems for smart devices that can enable seamless interaction amongst systems and users.

2:15 UAS用見通し外(BLOS:Beyond-Line-of-Sight)通信

Rick Lober, Vice President and General Manager, Defense & Intelligence Systems Division, Hughes Network Systems

This presentation will discuss the systems and techniques used to provide beyond-line-of-sight communications to Unmanned Aerial Systems. These include both large and small platforms in either a fixed wing or rotary wing configuration. The communications systems are used to handle both command data to the vehicle and sensor data from the vehicle. BLOS communications becomes critical when operating distances are far from a control station or mountains and buildings block the line of sight path to the vehicle. Certifications required for these communications systems when the vehicles are operating in commercial airspace are also a key issue.

2:45 理論から飛行へ:アプリケーションをまたがる研究、開発、試験および商業化のプラットフォームとしてのUAV(無人機)

Brian TaylorBrian Taylor, Director, UAV Laboratories, University of Minnesota

Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are poised to revolutionize many industries ranging from agriculture to filmmaking and pipeline inspection with a forecasted economic impact of greater than $13 billion over the next three years. While commercial UAVs are commonly marketed toward specific industries, many underlying foundational technologies are common across all applications, and even common to manned aircraft. Furthermore, the regulatory environment is common across application and aircraft type. An approach using a low-cost, open-source research infrastructure has enabled the University of Minnesota to quickly transition theory to flight, advancing many foundational technologies in navigation, reliability and flight control. A few recent examples will be examined along with potential future directions and development.

UAVの研究、開発および商業化

4:15 商用活動のための消費者向けドローン(無人飛行体)の設計

Yannick Levy, Vice President, Parrot

Consumer drones are light, safe and validated by hundreds of thousands of consumers around the world. The integration of technologies makes it as complex as designing a smartphone that flies. Potentially, these devices can be tuned to become professional tools. Parrot is one of the largest manufacturers of consumer drones in the world and this presentation will examine the transformative opportunities in designing drones for commercial activities.

4:45 UAS技術のUSGS(米国地質調査所)における応用

Bruce Quirk, UAS Director, United States Geological Survey

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) technology is quickly evolving and will have a significant impact on Earth science research. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is conducting an operational test and evaluation of UAS to see how this technology supports the mission of the USGS and the Department of the Interior (DOI). Over the last 5 years, the USGS, working with many partners, has been actively conducting proof-of-concept UAS missions which are designed to evaluate the potential of UAS technology to support the mandated DOI scientific, resource and land management missions. Using small UAS, the USGS is able to tailor solutions to meet project requirements by obtaining very high-resolution remote sensing data and generating GIS-ready products. UAS technology is providing a mechanism to collect timely remote sensing data at a low cost and at low risk over DOI lands that can be difficult to monitor and consequently enhances our ability to provide unbiased scientific information. This presentation describes the UAS technology and infrastructure being employed, pilot application projects already accomplished, lessons learned and the future of UAS within the DOI.

UAVの統合、安全および規制

9:10 政府および商用オペレーター用ドローンによる遠隔検知の法的意味

Joseph Vacek, J.D., Associate Professor, John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences, University of North Dakota

This presentation considers the legal ramifications from the use of three example remote sensing systems (unsophisticated, mid-range, and military grade) in the context of current and proposed privacy laws and operating regulations. We present several common scenarios that confront civil and government operators that could result in unexpected civil or criminal liability or constitutional challenges. We discuss gaps in the law relative to public expectations and operational concerns. From this we conclude with general recommendations for limiting legal exposure.

9:40 パイロットか、プログラマーか?自律の時代における訓練と認定

Keven GamboldKeven Gambold, CEO, Americas, Unmanned Experts, LLC

With next generation UAV platforms being expected to work beyond-line-of-sight in non-segregated airspace, the Airborne Decision Making (ADM) will become the domain of the aircraft. Sense and Avoid, Navigation, Self-Defense and potentially Target Engagement may all have to be done onboard. So how or who do we need to train and certify? We will examine some recent technological steps that are bringing AI closer to reality as well as the nascent regulatory environment in which self-driving cars, and soon planes, will find themselves operating.

10:45 カーボンナノチューブ塗膜を使った防除氷システム

Brett Burton, Tactical Systems Program Manager, Battelle Memorial Institute

In order to maintain flight performance and safety margins, UAVs that operate in adverse weather conditions require active in-flight Ice Protection Systems (IPS). Through a combination of materials research and systems engineering Battelle has developed a lightweight, retrofittable carbon nanotube coating that can be sandwiched between standard primers and topcoats to provide resistive heating capability.

11:05 UAS用の電子光学検知および回避

Andrew White, Program Manager, Sense and Avoid, Operations, Defense Research Associates

Defense Research Associates has developed a passive, optical-based Sense and Avoid system, initially targeted for the Defense market. This system uses industrial cameras and high-speed computing to visually acquire, track and declare nearby air traffic as a collision threat.

11:25 無人機の悪用

Colonel Andy Pennington, IMA to the Director of Air and Cyber Operations, PACAF; Assistant Professor and Assistant Program Chair, Embry Riddle University

The use of unmanned vehicles offers great promise to enhancing many endeavors in law enforcement, science and commerce. However, their low cost and simple operation will also provide a new arsenal of capabilities to nefarious non-state actors such as drug runners, common criminals and stalkers—just to name a few. This presentation will explore how unmanned air, land and maritime vehicles are most likely to enter the world of crime, and what capabilities law enforcement must develop to prepare for this certain future.

1:45 ドローンのインターネット:将来のUAVを実現するために2つの技術はどのように衝突するのか

Michael Winn, CEO, DroneDeploy

Drones are already unleashing new possibilities, but they’re not yet tools for the everyman. When will a drone be thrown into the back of a pickup, be controlled just off a smartphone, or in fact launch itself when needed? Smarter drones, networked together to enable coordination, collaboration and real time data delivery are required for this future, and this talk is about what already exists and what to expect in the next 12 months.


UAVの研究、開発および商業化

2:15 連結PNT(ポジショニング、ナビゲーションおよびタイミング)モジュラーセンサーによるUAVのSWaP-C(大きさ、重量、出力およびコスト)削減

John Fischer, CTO, Spectracom

Remote sensing payloads such as video, radar, lidar, sigint, etc. on UAVs are increasingly needing Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) information to operate. Interfacing to the aircraft’s navigation system is intrusive, cumbersome and sometimes even prohibitively expensive. Any connection to the flight control system may require a re-certification of the aircraft. Adding dedicated GPS receivers for each payload application burdens Size, Weight And Power (SWAP) budgets, adds cost and adds to the complexity of the installation with multiple antenna placements. A new concept is proposed to define a PNT Modular Sensor – a device that aggregates the best PNT information available at any one instant and distributes it to all the applications that need it.

2:45 空中発射遠隔検知システム

Matt Pobloske, CEO, Sensintel

Manned, and in the future unmanned, aircraft operating for commercial, defense and research purposes creates an opportunity to distribute remote sensors safely, time-phased and cost effectively. Sensors and their delivery systems can be used to sense and measure the air column as well as deliver small ground-based sensors that measure things like seismic/traffic activity, soil conditions, local meteorological conditions.

3:15 展示ホールにおけるポスターを鑑賞しながらのデザート休憩

4:00 貨物ドローンがいかに大量の貨物を扱うことができるのか

Jonathan Ledgard, Director, Future Africa, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology - Switzerland

Red/Blue is a Swiss based consortium of pioneering researchers, lawyers, logisticians, designers and entrepreneurs who aim to build the first cargo drone routes in Africa by 2016, where red is a “Red Line” for medical and emergency use in outlying areas and blue is a “Blue Express” for commercial use in and around cities. This talk will address the challenges associated with how cargo drones can achieve massive scale.

4:20 GPSが使用できない環境に向けたオープンソース小型クワッドコプターの設計および実装

Chang Liu, Aeronautics, Astronautics Engineering, Southampton University - United Kingdom

This presentation addresses the design of a quadcopter control architecture, based on crowd-sourcing electronics. The aim of this quadcopter is to provide a test bed for vision-based autonomous navigation system in GPS-denied environments. The control algorithm is developed under Arduino compatible open source electronics, whereas the complete design also includes an additional downward facing optical flow sensor (PX4FLOW camera) for velocity estimation, and a separate Linux embedded computer (Odriod-U3) for future Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) vision algorithm development. In its current stage, by utilizing the PX4FLOW sensor, it is capable of horizontal velocity control and altitude hold, and also a ground station GUI software is developed in Matlab for two-way telemetry visualization and in-air parameter tuning through XBee.

4:40 自律UAVの技術および政策上の検討事項

Jeremy Straub, John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences, Department of Computer Science, University of North Dakota

This presentation will provide an overview of the ‘state of the art’ of UAV autonomy, discussing autonomous control as well as single UAV command and cluster command architectures. After looking at current capabilities, the presentation will focus on the next steps towards more robust autonomy, discussing what areas are the proverbial ‘low hanging fruit’ for greater autonomy and where more development (and consequently time) will be required. Finally, the presentation will turn to a consideration of policy considerations for UAV autonomous control. It will discuss possibilities and potential pitfalls for more autonomous and fully autonomous UAVs in both military and civilian (police/government and commercial/personal) contexts. Finally, it will discuss areas where strong policy is needed to prevent or mitigate potential problems and keep citizen comfort with drone use high.
