V Bat assists JIATF South Mission in Detection of Illicit Trafficking

V Bat assists JIATF South Mission in Detection of Illicit Trafficking

July 6, 2017

The 337-foot USNS Spearhead transport ship is back in Truman Harbor through next week preparing for a trip to Latin and South America as well as testing a new asset — a drone that takes off and lands vertically.

Austin Howard, left, and Wayne McAuliffe of Martin UAV move a prototype V-BAT drone that will be operating from the USNS Spearhead to assist in the JIATF South mission of detection and monitoring illicit trafficking.The Spearhead visits Key West regularly as it is often tasked with supporting Joint Interagency Task Force South based near Truman Waterfront as well as conducting humanitarian missions to Caribbean nations, but this visit is a little unique.

Navy Lt. Rick Moore and Martin UAV Vice President for Programs Wayne McAuliffe displayed the Texas based company’s 9-foot tall drone that will be assisting in gathering intelligence while at sea.

“It’s a very versatile platform and will help us carry out more missions, such as maritime security and supporting JIATF South,” Moore said.

The drone has an 8-foot wingspan and is relatively light at roughly 82 pounds. It only needs a 15-foot by 15-foot space to take off and land, McAuliffe explained. The drone being used by the Spearhead crew is outfitted with cameras and sensors, but the drone can fly up to eight hours with any standard 5-pound payload.

It is not a weapons platform, McAuliffe said.

Moore said the Spearhead will also be visiting several Latin and South American countries as they continue to increase inter-operability with partner nations. The drone testing is a small part of their larger mission.

“We have a medical and construction element and will be drilling some wells for water as well as conducting dive training with our host nations,” Moore said.

The Spearhead takes part in the Department of Defense’s annual mission called Continuing Promise 2017 that seeks to foster stability and enhance the collective ability of the United States and its partner nations to respond to natural disasters and humanitarian crises.

The Spearhead was last in Key West in February where it was loaded with medical, dental and veterinarian supplies near the Outer Mole Pier bound for Guatemala, Honduras and Colombia.

The ship has a civilian crew of fewer than 30 people. Though the Spearhead crew is mostly civilian, the vessel itself is part of the Military Sealift Command, the portion of the Navy that oversees transport vessels.

There are Naval officers on board who oversee the military element of the ship’s mission.

Moore said the Spearhead will likely remain in Key West through next week.

High-tech gadgets take to air, sea at Camp Pendleton

High-tech gadgets take to air, sea at Camp Pendleton

May 1, 2017

An exercise taking place this month at Camp Pendleton is designed to help answer a simple question: how to mount an aggressive beach invasion while risking fewer U.S. Marine lives in a time when technology almost ensures that the enemy will see everything that’s coming at them.

Martin UAV's V Bat takes to air, sea at Camp Pendleton
Video – The Advanced Naval Technology Exercise is taking place this month at Camp Pendleton.
On display in the air, sea and land were more than 100 high-tech tools the U.S. Marine Corps. is considering for future warfare use. Those tools included flying drones of all shapes and sizes, unmanned ground vehicles that can start a beach assault with a machine gun controlled from half a kilometer away, and submersible robots that scour the shallow waters near shore searching for mines and other obstacles.

“It’s focused on first wave and mostly focusing on unmanned systems with a big emphasis on intelligence gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance,” she said.

“What we’re doing here is marrying up technologists from industry, academia and government labs with the guys who actually develop the operation concepts for the Marine Corps,” added Marine Lt. Col. Jim Foley.

The event was reminiscent of a huge trade show with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of military contracts potentially at stake.

Each afternoon some of the tools were put into practice during a faux amphibious landing in which the waters were scanned by air and sea by drones and robots that looked for mines and gauged the currents and wave heights. The unmanned ground vehicles were then brought in to set up on the beach and perhaps begin the fight. Information was being relayed from above by flying drones of all sizes and shapes.

“Some of the vehicles that in the past were piloted by actual people are being remotely operated so the first things that hit the beach won’t be manned, they will be robots that can breach or go through obstacles,” Foley said.

A few examples of the 100-plus gadgets on exhibit:

  • The Pegasus Hybrid — a quad-copter small flying drone that becomes a ground vehicle once it’s landed. “You can do missions with it you can’t do with just a ground vehicle or an air vehicle,” said Robotics Research LLC Vice President Carl Murphy. “You could land it on a building and then drive it around to look at things without causing a bunch of sound and ruckus.”
  • The Multi-Utility Tactical Transport family of vehicles — (MUTT) which are various sized supply carrying vehicles that can be put on the beach in advance of troops. They can also be turned into a weapon by mounting a M2 .50-caliber machine. “It would take five guys to take the .50-cal downrange. One guy can do it here and he can remotely control it. So now you look like a big force and the enemy won’t know.” said Dan Rodgers of General Dynmacis Land Systems.
  • The RAZOR Biorobotic Mine-Hunting UUV — “This thing swims sort of like a sea turtle with four flapping fins that can do low-speed maneuvers” which is ideal for doing widespread mapping of a minefield, said David Beal, engineer with the naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport.

“We believe amphibious operations will be a vital part of our tool box in the future,” Lt. Col. Foley said. “What has changed is our potential adversaries abilities. they can have access to overhead and satellite imagery so we assume we’re always going to be looked at.”

He said even groups like ISIS can use 3-D printers to make drones and explosive devices and are using those today. “So even at the lower levels we are seeing threats we never saw before. We need to use technology to aid our manned units to maintain our edge.” Foley said. “We don’t ever want to be in a fair fight.”

Tracy Conroy, experimentation director for SPAWAR Systems Center PACIFIC, said events like this used to be commonplace but since the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, where amphibious landings played little role, the Marine Corps had gotten away from such things.

“The purpose of this exercise is to see what has happened in the past 14 years, what new technology is there, to help improve and enable the Marines to get ashore quickly, safely, quietly and get them back to the ships,” he said.

He said in the future drones and man will work together as one unit, one team.

“It’s given you eyes on the water, eyes under the water, eyes on the beach and eyes in the sky,” Conroy said. “We take less of a risk of losing a Marine or a Seal with that (teamwork).”

Flying Cell Phone Towers Go Mainstream

Flying Cell Phone Towers Go Mainstream

April 3, 2017

Fenix Group, a private VA based technology firm, has partnered with Martin UAV, a Texasbased manufacturer of rugged utility drones to launch the world’s first drone capable of providing fully functional 4G cell phone service.

The feat may be a world’s first, and the company sees huge potential for government and industry with the flying cell phone tower, weighing in at under 55 pounds.

“When we first conceived the project, we knew we had to make it a priority,” said Dave Peterson, Fenix Group’s President & CEO.

“The market is just there for this right now and Martin UAV immediately understood that.”

“Beyond tactical closed networks for DoD at huge cost savings over what is currently being fielded, the marriage of unmanned systems with LTE core networks is representative of what Google was trying to do with their Loon program.”

“We beat Google at something, for very little money, and that feels great.”

While Fenix Group’s focus is in providing technology & direct support to DoD and partner forces worldwide, the utility for a flying cell phone tower – complete with subscriber database & billing functionality, means connectivity in the most remote parts of the world.

(Learn More about Martin UAV capabilities, courtesy of Martin UAV and YouTube)In addition to providing a coverage area on the ground, the payload is also able to stream encrypted video from the drone’s camera system to anyone on the network.

In the future, soldiers, search and rescue teams, and first responders will have access to drone video from their phones.  ThFenix Groupe Fenix team even went so far as to enable Internet access so that command centers could access the feed from anywhere in the world.

“The technical challenges we faced to get all of the components to play nicely and not cause the aircraft to crash were very real,” stated Stefan Schaner, Fenix Group’s Chief Innovation Officer.

“We were on a shoestring budget to do this safely. Power constraints, FAA & FCC authorities, getting the overall payload weight down, and a myriad of problems we didn’t expect all had to be overcome.”

“Working with Martin allowed us to get the right aircraft into play with the right characteristics for this project to be successful.”

While Fenix Group plans to issue its first production units to DoD & first responders, the Virginia startup anticipates high demand from telecom providers, oil & gas companies, and crisis response units worldwide.

VStar Systems Inc. – Successful Flight Test Aboard Martin UAV’s V-Bat

VStar Systems Inc. – Successful Flight Test Aboard Martin UAV’s V-Bat

March 14, 2017

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (March 1, 2017) – Today, VStar Systems Inc.a privately held aerospace and defense systems company, announced the successful flight test of its modular Signal Intelligence Sensor, MA-C/lite, aboard the Martin UAV V-Bat aircraft. Over the duration of 35 minutes at an altitude of 400 feet above ground level, MA-C/lite collected signals from as far as 20 miles distance. MA-C/lite provides never before seen capabilities to Martin UAV’s V-Bat fleet, enabling the aircraft to fulfill new, critical missions for a variety of military and private security clients.

Founded by entrepreneur and U.S. Navy veteran Andy Von Stauffenberg, VStar Systems designed its MA-C products to provide signal intelligence such as signal copy, signal identification and geolocation to a wide variety of platforms, ranging from Type 1 UAV’s to even the largest manned platforms. Starting at a weight of approximately 2 lbs., MA-C/lite provides SIGINT capabilities to Martin UAV’s line of V-Bat drones, which previously were limited to optical payloads due to size and weight of other SIGINT sensors on the market. MA-C/lite is one of several products under the MA-X Modular Airborne Signal Intelligence System, a scalable solution designed to provide critical intelligence at a more affordable price point.

VStar Systems Inc. Announces Successful Flight Test of MA-C Signal Intelligence Sensor Aboard Martin UAV’s V-Bat

“This flight test is the first step toward utilising smaller UAV’s in superior ways,” said Andy von Stauffenberg, CEO of VStar Systems. “Under our lightweight design and modular approach, Martin UAV’s V-Bat now has the ability to perform new, critical roles in today’s information age. Our sensor opens the door to more innovation and more valuable uses for SIGINT, and aids even the smallest platforms in becoming Multi-Intelligence capable.”

The launch of the MA-C/lite sensor is VStar’s first step in commoditizing SIGINT – allowing smaller aircraft to carry a single, specialised module rather than extra weight and associated costs from a sensor that does more than required for the mission. VStar provides a convenient and efficient system that requires low size and weight, and comes at a low cost; ultimately bringing more players and ingenuity into the UAV industry as more aircraft utilizing VStar’s sensors will be able to fulfil critical the tactical and strategic missions that commanders have been struggling to complete.

“We are eager to work with VStar to develop V-Bat’s capability in the tactical VTOL market; the warfighter deserves the best technology and support we can provide.” said Phil Jones, COO of Martin UAV. “The addition of VStar’s MA-C/lite sensor gives the VBat a new, critical capability that our military clients are excited to get access to.”

With a successful first flight test complete, and several additional tests to increase the capabilities already planned, VStar’s MA-C Sensors will become available as a payload option on the VBat later this year. For further details about the full MA-X system and/or inquiries, visit the VStar Systems website at vstarsystems.com.

Martin UAV aids Tanzania’s TNP Nab Poachers

MartinUAV aids Tanzania’s TNP Nab Poachers

June 3, 2016

Poachers in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park will face a new foe after the African nation’s park service announced a new drone patrol this past month.

Tanzania’s Ministry of Tourism approved the use of UAVs over the park’s 1,000-square-foot domain following a trial deployment at Mkomanzi National Park.

The park is one of Africa’s most verdant preserves in terms of biodiversity and is especially known for its elephant population.

The park’s website explains:

Martin UAV Super Bat DA-50 Helps Tarangire National Park Police Nab Poachers“Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem – a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.”

Park law-enforcement will patrol the region using Super Bat DA 50 drones by Martin UAV. The fixed-wing aircraft has a 15,000 flight ceiling and can cover a 6-10 mile radius with a fuel range of 450 miles. Bathawk Recon, a Tanzanian UAV startup, will operate the fleet.

The anti-poaching initiative may run afoul of current national policy, however. In 2014, Tanzania’s national park service, Tanapa, declared that “the use of the UAVs of different sizes for any purposes is not allowed in the national parks for security reasons.” Ironically, the agency feared that poachers could use drones to scope out prey. It’s not yet clear if the Tarangire project will receive a government waiver.

Over the past six years, more than 80,000 Tanzanian elephants have been slaughtered for their ivory.

Drones have become one of the most promising weapons worldwide in the war on wildlife poaching.

In 2014, drone firm, EYE Remote Solutions led a UAV project in a rhino habitat in South Africa. The company approached the project in cooperation with an NGO as “a high security, rapid deployment, long term presence job, and we enlisted the assistance of several high-end technological partners to produce a viable solution – deployable immediately.”

More recently in South Africa, the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation worked with state-owned tech firm Denel Dynamics on a UAV solution to battle rhino poachers in Kruger National Park.

Tanzania: Drone Use Approved As Anti-Poaching War Intensifies

Tanzania: Drone Use Approved As Anti-Poaching War Intensifies

May 20, 2016

Arusha — Tanzania has authorised the use of drones in Tarangire National Park in a hi-tech battle against poachers who threaten the country’s multi-billion dollars wildlife tourism industry.

This operation will be carried out by Bathawk Recon, a Tanzanian start-up intending to develop and deploy this technology in countries affected by poaching.

Bathawk Recon director Mike Chambers says UAVs are the surest way of the future as the cost benefit is hugely advantageous.

“We have selected the Super Bat DA-50 made by Martin UAV in the US in the six month operation that will include, a fully functioning operation, fully trained operational personal and a ranger protocol program” Mr Chambers told BusinessWeek here.

According to Mr Chambers, this kind of drone has day and night capability which will enable surveillance to be deployed any time, any place in the protection area leaving no place for poachers to hide.

“This will enable us to survey greater areas and protect larger parks and reserves. The concept will find poachers and illegal intruders and lead rangers to the location.” Mr Chambers explains.

Bathawk Recon’s plan for the Tarangire is to establish UAV anti-poaching as a viable technology and the best choice for wildlife protection aerial surveillance.

Martin UAV’s Tanzanian Anti-Poaching Success!

MartinUAV’s Tanzanian Anti-Poaching Success!

October 28, 2015

Martin UAV LLC and Aviation Unmanned LLC, out of Addison, TX successfully deployed two of its renowned fixed-wing unmanned systems in support of Bathawk Recon and the Tanzanian National Park Authority (TANAPA).

Bathawk Recon, a Tanzanian UAV Anti-Poaching surveillance company, hosted the trials, which featured the American made Martin UAV “Super Bat” from the 12th to the 16th of September. The rigorous trial evaluation and associated metrics were designed to determine if the gas-powered, long-endurance UAV could meet Bathawk’s anti-poaching concept requirements. After five rigorous days of flying, the Super Bat proved its prowess by hitting every target, something none of the competing UAV’s were able to accomplish.

The combined team, made up of Martin UAV, Aviation Unmanned, BatHawk Recon and TANAPA, put the Super Bat through its paces over five days testing sound, the effectiveness of the sensors, range, endurance and operating in support of park rangers.

The Super Bat, even while operating at the maximum altitude agreed with civil aviation, could detect people, follow them through the bush, zoom in on game and do it all in both in Video and Infra Red. Along with a highly effective sensor payload, the aircraft’s range and endurance were confirmed at an impressive 30 kilometers distance and eight hours in the air.

UAV anti poaching surveillance projects are being developed in a number of African countries such as South Africa, Namibia and Kenya. However, there is still some controversy on their effectiveness. Bathawk’s position is that UAV surveillance is certain to be the most cost effective and, in the end, will be widely used in anti poaching.

After multiple aircraft evaluations by BatHawk, the Martin UAV Super Bat has proven viable to support ongoing operations. This is a landmark achievement for Martin UAV and a testament to robust, experienced engineering and ground breaking technological advances in the medium UAV market.
