obotics Centre, Inc. and Smith Myers
recently announced that the Smith
Myers ARTEMIS Mobile Phone detection,
location and communication suite has
been integrated into the new Robotics
Centre Echo SAR (Search and Rescue)
payload for small unmanned aerial
systems (UAS) built by Teledyne FLIR
Defense. Echo SAR enables operators
to quickly find, map, and interact
with mobile phone handsets in fast
moving disaster situations, aiding and
boosting the ability of first responders
to locate victims and save lives.
Designed for use on Teledyne FLIR's
R80D SkyRaider™ and SkyRanger®
R70 drones, the advanced Echo SAR
payload will provide users with the
stand-alone ability to find an individual
mobile handset, conduct mass mapping
of mobile phones in out-of-service
areas, and to communicate either with
individuals or groups of mobile phones.
" Previously, ARTEMIS airborne
capabilities were only available for
use on manned rotary and fixed-wing
platforms, " said Dr. Eric Karmouch,
CTO of Robotics Centre. " Now, for the
first time, this life-saving technology
can be deployed in minutes on a small
quad-rotor UAV, providing a whole new
capability to SAR operators working
in the most difficult conditions. "
The operationally proven Teledyne FLIR
R80D SkyRaider and SkyRanger R70
UAVs, used by military and public safety
agencies worldwide, are rugged, allweather
platforms well suited for search
and rescue missions. Easily deployed and
operated by a single user, the drones can
provide extended situational awareness
when and where it's needed most.

TEND, a company that specializes
in human-guided autonomous
drone operating systems for military
forces and law enforcement agencies,
will supply hundreds of its advanced
Wolverine drone systems to the U.S
Department of Defense (DoD). The
systems are being developed under
the joint leadership of the DoD
and the Israel Ministry of Defense
(IMoD) for deployment to protect
U.S. military forces in the field.
UNMANNED SYSTEMS SPECIAL REPORT
The contract follows a joint research
& development program led by the
Directorate of Defense Research and
Development (DDR&D) at Israel's
Ministry of Defense, together with
XTEND, and the Irregular Warfare
Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD,
previously CTTSO) of the DoD.
Made in the U.S., the small, lightweight,
and rugged Wolverine is affordable,
versatile, and has low power consumption.
Easy to use, it enables operators - even
those with no flight experience - to
perform extremely precise remote tasks,
maneuvers, and actions in complex
environments (indoor or outdoor), with
minimal training and maintenance.
Powered by XTEND's unique
human-centric machine interface
technology, this new human extension
platform facilitates complete sensory
awareness, using the most advanced
virtual and augmented reality
technologies, coupled with advanced
machine learning flight algorithms.
Using a wearable lightweight system
and a natural hand gesture-recognition
controller, operators immerse themselves
in the remote environment, without
physical risk. Employing multi-use
payloads and effectors (Modular Add-On
Extensions) they may perform complex
tasks in support of tactical missions,
including surveying enemy territory at
