Really? Because I could have sworn all my professors were teaching droning. Get it?! Because they just rambled on monotonously all the time! “Well obviously they weren’t teaching comedy.” GOOD ONE. How’s that dickbaggery major working out for you?
The pilotless aircraft industry is expected to create more than 23,000 U.S. jobs over the next 15 years, according to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. A spokesperson for the group told The Daily that 150 colleges are now offering courses.
Jeb Bailey, 28, told The Daily he has taken every drone-related course at Northwestern Michigan College. It’s no wonder why, when drone pilots can make $ 50,000 to $ 120,000 per year, according to Tom Kenville, founder of Unmanned Applications Institute International. Bailey said the idea of flying unmanned drones for a year in Afghanistan to pay off student loan debt sounded pretty attractive.
Flying unmanned drones for a year in Afghanistan to pay off your student loans sounded pretty attractive to you, did it, Jeb? Let me tell you what sounds attractive to me: a naked lady with big ol’ milky-white titties lounging on my couch like she just stepped out of some fancy old oil painting. Yeah, and she’s got a Butterfinger ice cream bar in her hand and she’s mouthing something to me. You know what she’s saying, Jeb? She’s saying, “I’m full, you can have the rest.” Now that’s f***ing attractive. I still haven’t paid off my student loans.
Thanks to Rusty Trombo– REALLY? Come on, this is a family restaurant!

BAE Technology’ ASTRAEA isn’t really a new idea– the business’s been playing up its unmanned potential for very some time now– however it’s all appearing totally less pie-in-the-sky now that the Farnborough Airshow has actually kicked off. Typically, UAVs are thought to be smaller sized, drone-type apparatuses; these things are usually used in military activities where remote gunfire or reconnaissance is required. Clearly, it’s about time someone asked the noticeable: “Why?” Lambert Dopping-Hepenstal, Engineering Director Technologies and Technique, Military Air and Information at BAE and ASTRAEA Program Director recently spoke at the aforesaid occasion, indicating that this particular aircraft could “open up a brand-new market.” He proceeded: “Present search and rescue aircraft are limited by human endurance, nonetheless with a UAV there’s no reason why they can not remain up for weeks.” Sadly, he also asserted that there aren’t any type of plan of actions to ship real humans up in the air without a pilot onboard, but if you’re rich and mettlesome sufficient to pull it off yourself … well, be certain to deliver us the online video. Additionally, Godspeed.

If Broad Location Maritime Monitoring, or war electronic devices are your bag, then things merely got real. Northrop Grumman has just unveiled the MQ-4C BAMS Triton, the most recent addition to the US Navy’s Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Force. The spy plane was than four years in development, has a wingspan of 130.9 feet and is able to cover more than just 2.7 million square miles in a single mission. As you will certainly have been unable to stay clear of seeing, the unmanned aircraft most definitely inherited a couple of the RQ-4 Universal Hawk’s dome-like DNA, and will certainly outline towards active service after finishing useful requirement evaluations and system progression and exhibition flights. Want to bone-up on the full spec? Hit the more protection link for the amounts. In the interim, we’re wondering if they might expand the research.

Disagreement between passionate Windows and Mac OS diehards have caused many a kerfuffle on the Interwebs. When it comes to the tactical control system of the US Navy’s autonomous vertical take-off-and-landing craft, however, the military branch is putting its money on a different operating system. The Navy just awarded a contract worth nearly $ 28 million to Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems to transition its VTOL drones to using its own flavor of good, old Linux. Eventually, the Navy plans to have 168 Northrop Grumman MQ-8B Navy Fire Scout drones rocking the OS as part of its fleet. The Register reports that the move was likely made for security reasons following a malware attack on the Air Force’s Windows-based drone system last year. Add Samsung’s recent inclusion into the Platinum ranks of Linux’s core supporters and you really can’t blame fans of the operating system if they decide to wear shades while pondering its future.

Watch more engineering videos at www.EngineeringTV.com! Bill Borgia, Director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Lockheed Martin, gives us the details on their latest unique creation a small UAV with a design inspired by a samara, the seed from a maple tree. The Samarai has only two moving parts and weighs less than half a pound. At AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2011, the Samarai debuted and demonstrated vertical takeoff and landing, stable hover, and on-board video streaming.

Because what could be better than a bunch of unmanned flying death machines getting infected with a a computer virus, a bunch of unmanned flying death machines have been infected with a computer virus. *crosses fingers for something terminal*
The virus, first reported by Wired magazine’s defense blog, is allegedly logging pilots’ every keystroke as they carry out their missions.
“Military network security specialists aren’t sure whether the virus and its so-called ‘keylogger’ payload were introduced intentionally or by accident; it may be a common piece of malware that just happened to make its way into these sensitive networks,” the article says. “The specialists don’t know exactly how far the virus has spread.”
Reuters posted a story that says the drones continue to carry out missions even with the virus. The article also quotes an unnamed source who said: “Something is going on, but it has not had any impact on the missions overseas.”
“Meh, they got a virus — no biggie.” NO BIGGIE?! That’s like sending a kid to school with chicken pox! Or, even worse, no lunch. Don’t forget to pack them, parents — it’s the most important meal of their day. Get it?! Because you didn’t make them breakfast either.
Thanks to Jeff, Admiral Tits (I’d serve under you any day!) and Colin, who once used keystroke loggers to get their roommates’ Facebook passwords, then changed all their profile pictures to penises. OMG — CLASSIC!
It’s a year since Lockheed Martin won the contract to provide an unmanned cargo delivery system to the US military and now its first K-MAX helicopter is just about ready for duty. The 6,000-pound RC chopper is scheduled to journey to the manifold fronts of Afghanistan next month, where it’ll get busy ferrying its own bodyweight in ammo and supplies to needy anthills up to 200km away. And, if things get too sticky for laptop flying, there’s always room for a brave soul to jump in there and grab the controls. You’ll find a fresh demo video after the break, plus we’ve also stuck in that fancy clip from last year to rotor your memory.
Question by jbramm636: What is the FSC or NAICS code for robotics or unmanned ground vehicles?
I am looking for the correct code to use for Department of Defense contracting for ground based robotics.
Answer by Brad
FSC is one of the 2300 series, possibly 2320 or 2355. The NAICS is difficult without more information. Try one of these 2 websites to determine the best fit. The PSC might be a better choice depending on what you need the information for.

Boeing’s new Phantom Ray aircraft made a covert first flight last week, taking to the skies above California’s Edwards Air Force Base. The unmanned airborne system (UAS) reached 7,500 feet, hitting a maximum speed of 178 knots and flying for a total of 17 minutes — sure, it won’t outlast the Phantom Eye anytime soon, but hey, we’ve all gotta start somewhere. What the 36-foot long vehicle lacks in relative endurance, it makes up stealth, designed to be undetectable on radar, and thanks to a deeply embedded engine, giving off a minimal amount of heat. Boeing will be running additional tests on the autonomous vehicle in the coming weeks, in attempt to prep it for possible future surveillance and attack missions. No word on when this might actually be hitting an airspace near you, but in the meantime, it’s probably best to refrain from ticking off any deep pocketed governments.
