Aeryon Labs Inc. | Tuesday, November 7th | 1230 – 1330

Aeryon Labs Inc. offers small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) and end-to-end solutions that deliver life and resource saving, actionable aerial intelligence.During a one-hour training session, attendees will learn about Aeryon’s impact on updates to payload and controller technology, and will view a live demonstration of the Sky Ranger™ sUAS and its integrated platform/payload features. Payloads on demonstration will be the HDZoom30, a high zoom optical camera, and the SR-EO/IR, a stabilitized, simultaneously-streaming electrical optical (RGB) and IR (infrared) high resolution camera.

MyDefence | Tuesday, November 7th | 1330 – 1430

MyDefence Counter UAS products are state-of-the-art, rapid deployment solutions made to secure and enhance the capabilities of the warfighter. They offer both wearable products with handheld detection as well as mobile and stationary scalable systems with fast deployment.

MyDefence is demonstrating its innovative solutions to emerging UAS threats. Our product array matches cutting edge technology with form factors desired to meet user needs. The Wingman, a small wearable UAS detection device, features consistent detection at 1,200 meters and has seen as great as 3,000 meter ranges in government testing.

Lockheed Martin | Tuesday, November 7th | 1445 – 1545

Lockheed Martin Procerus Technologies is a leader in developing and producing world-class avionics and payload technologies used in numerous sUAS. Products include advanced Kestral Autopilot flight systems, OnPoint Vision Systems for target tracking, stabilization, geo-location and terminal guidance applications, Preceptor Imaging systems, Indago VTOL Quad Rotor and other avionics for small UAS.

They will be demonstrating the Indago III VTOL UAV System which is a lightweight, rapidly deployable, and easy to use SUAS for military users. This system has been built to support small unit airborne imaging and reconnaissance needs.  In addition to our air-vehicle, we will be demonstrating Indago System Sensor Options including: The DUO+, ION30x, and Dual IR Sensors.  These sensors provided high-resolution, detailed, real-time imagery from a safe stand-off.

Battelle | Tuesday, November 7th | 1545 – 1630

Battelle is the world’s largest non-profit research and development institute. They transition early-stage technologies into fieldable hardware. During a one-hour training session, Battelle will be reviewing the Drone Defender—one of the most widely deployed counter UAS systems in theater. This handheld man-portable directional jammer that breaks the communication between the Pilot and the UAS is ideal for dismounted solutions and tower watch scenarios. Battelle will be discussing the history of the product, and the operation and performance of the systems.

Rohde & Schwarz | Wednesday, November 8th | 0830 – 0930

Rohde & Schwarz will be demonstrating it ARDRONIS-P UAS—a detect, direction finding and surgical jamming solution. The system works by alerting an operator of a potential threat, classifying the type of drone being operated and then presenting to the operator the ability to deny or defeat that specific drone type.

AeroVironment | Wednesday, November 8th | 0930 – 1030

AeroVironment's family of integrated and interoperable UAS gives law enforcement personnel and first responders the ability to see and assess the situation ahead. During a one-hour training session, the focus will be on the Puma sUAS—designed for both land and maritime operations, and the new I45 payload—a robust payload for group 1 aircraft. The I45 has 50x loftless zoom, dual EO imagers, IR, and low light level cameras. It has about 7x the standoff capabilities of the previous PUMA payload and is a drop-in system—meaning no software updates required. During the live demonstration, AeroVironment will be flying the Puma from their battle-proven ground control station (GCS).

Dedrone | Wednesday, November 8th | 1030 – 1130

Dedrone is the market and technology leader in airspace security. The Dedrone platform combines hardware sensors and machine-learning software, providing early warning, classification of, and mitigation against all drone threats. Based in San Francisco, Dedrone was founded in 2014 and is backed by investors including Felicis Ventures, Menlo Ventures, and John Chambers, former CEO of Cisco Systems. They will be demonstrating their DJI Phantom with 3350 mm diagonal dimension and weighing only 1260 grams.

FLIR | Wednesday, November 8th  | 1130 – 1230

FLIR Unmanned Aerial Systems is the world's largest commercial company specializing in the design and production of thermal imaging cameras, components and imaging sensors. FLIR will be demonstrating their PD-100 Black Hornet PRS which is the first airborne and commercially available Personal Reconnaissance System. It provides end users with a highly mobile sensor system providing an immediate Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance capability.
