Amprius Technologies, Inc. has signed purchase orders with three premier electric aviation manufacturers for custom cells from the Company’s 450 Wh/kg ultra-high-energy density platform for battery pack development and qualification.
The custom cells from the 450 Wh/kg platform were developed in collaboration with Amprius’ strategic customers to address their unique high-altitude pseudo satellite (HAPS) qualification requirements and enable them to operate in highly challenging environments.
WISPR Systems has introduced SkyScout, a unique multirotor drone platform designed to fulfill the needs of challenging commercial and industrial applications such as mapping and surveying, construction, and infrastructure inspection.
SkyScout is equipped with high-precision RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) positioning technology, thanks to the Here GPS receiver with u-blox F9P module. This powerful combination delivers centimeter-level accuracy and ultra-fast lock times, allowing the aircraft to maintain a stable flight path and ensuring sharper imagery and more reliable data.
A high-level speaker line-up will discuss key emerging C-sUAS trends at SAE Media Group’s sell-out event – the Counter UAS Technology USA Conference – this December in Arlington, Virginia.
Taking place on December 5 and 6, it will be the biggest edition of the event yet with 37 expert speakers, 35 sponsors and exhibitors, and more than 200 delegates from over 15 nations including the US, Canada, UK, Singapore, Poland, and more.
