Dave Merrill, Elroy Air, will cover technical and commercial aspects of the autonomous air cargo logistics system

logistics

Elroy Air is developing autonomous aircraft systems to deliver goods to the world’s most remote places. Powered by sensing and autonomy, their vertical-takeoff-and-landing (VTOL) cargo transport system will operate outside of airport infrastructure. Immediate relief in disaster and firefighting situations, commercial cargo delivery by air to replace long / inefficient truck routes, and rapid autonomous resupply for troops in the field. The founders and much of the team worked at early UAV companies in the Bay Area (3D Robotics, Airware), and the company is backed by venture financing. The Elroy Air team is currently completing the design of their full-scale aircraft and readying sub-scale prototypes for first flights.

This talk will cover both the technical and commercial aspects of the autonomous air cargo logistics system under development by Elroy Air. In addition to a discussion about the aircraft itself, prototypes of our cargo-handling robotics will be shown and discussed. Bring your questions and ideas! Looking forward to a lively discussion about the next wave of innovation and development in aerospace, autonomy and logistics.

“Long-Range Cargo Unmanned Aerial Vehicle for Wide Range of Applications” – Presented by Anthony Pizarro & Bruno Doerwald, Romaeris Corporation

Romaeris Corporation

“Long-Range Cargo Unmanned Aerial Vehicle for Wide Range of Applications” – Presented by Anthony Pizarro & Bruno Doerwald, Romaeris Corporation, at the Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, June 13, 2017, Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.

Romaeris Corp. is designing a cargo unmanned aircraft capable of carrying loads of 250 Kg for distances of up to 1,800 Km at low cost without relying on airport infrastructure. The aircraft requires a flight controller incorporating artificial intelligence and will be equipped with a telemetry system to allow aircraft health monitoring and compliance with government regulations for beyond visual line of sight missions. The aircraft development program has been supported to date by Canadian federal and provincial governments and two universities.

"The Propulsion System powering the future Unmanned Cargo Aircraft: conventional vs. breakthrough" – Presented by Paolo Salvetti, Avio Aero

Today, the propulsion system represents a small percent of the value of a UAS; for a MALE it varies from 1-3%. Regardless, propulsion systems are key to ensure safety of flight and drive costs of operations, and this will be even more important on future Unmanned Cargo Aircrafts, where the engine will likely become the most important on-board system driving productivity. This presentation is intended to give an overview of the propulsion system for the future UCA, its relevance and the key productivity drivers; it will also benchmarking between traditional and breakthrough propulsion systems (eg. hybrid)

Voliris Introduces Flying Container Project (Video)

The VOLIRIS company is currently developing an automatic container carrier airship that will alone transport a standardized container from one point to another. As a first step, the machine will operate with helium and conventional engines. Eventually it will run using hydrogen for both lifting and propelling purposes, thus only producing water when flying.
