VIDEO: Blue Bear demos simultaneous remote launch for swarming drone tech

Blue Bear has successfully demonstrated 7 UAS simultaneously taking off with its push button ‘remote launch’ technology.

It allows a remote operator, virtually anywhere in the world, to be able to command a fleet of VTOL Fixed Wing UAS to take off and transition into individual or cooperative swarming missions.

Blue Bear Ghost UAS was used as part of this demonstration and comes in both a standard fixed fuselage configuration or equipped with a plug and play modular fuselage bay.

Fitted with Blue Bear’s latest generation of avionics, plug and play open architectures and SmartConnectTM technology, the fully autonomous Ghost UAS is one of the most advanced small UAS in the world.

The modular architecture allows it to be easily fitted with one of the plug and play payloads from the growing ecosystem of payloads providers working with Blue Bear.

The modular payload bay is now being adapted for medical delivery applications, and the fully autonomous remote launch functionality makes the prospect of fully autonomous drone delivery and centralised command and control a clear reality.

Ian Williams-Wynn, MD said: “Blue Bear can now retrofit its SmartConnectTM, open architectures, autopilots and other avionics to third party UAS, UGVs, USVs and UxVs to enable them to utilise the growing ecosystem of plug and play payloads, commanded by Blue Bear CenturionTM Command and Control software.

“This provides platform suppliers from air, land and maritime domains with the ability to plug their systems into any Blue Bear CenturionTM equipped system, providing the operator with a single command and control platform for all their multi-domain unmanned assets.”
