Video games finally pay off: Air Force needs more virtual flyers than real pilots

¿Y no sería mejor usar a los propios pilotos virtuales formados durante años en simuladores de vuelo comerciales como pilotos de UAV?


4 Forgotten Facts About Combat UAVs

1) The Air Force still trains more pilots for manned airplanes than it trains UAV controllers.
2) For every UAV in the air on a mission, there are three others in inventory.
3) UAVs aren't unmanned—they're remotely controlled.
4) Reapers and Predators are more useful for snooping on enemies than killing them.


Some UAV Makers Do Better Than Others

The Assn. for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International show here last month was a chance to look at the industry's progress in meeting Pentagon demands for more unmanned systems. Some systems and companies are doing much better than others. But what's often not clear is why.


New class of UAVs look more like UFOs

Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) employ a fixed wing design like that of a traditional plane. But these designs offer limited maneuverability and payload capacity, require a runway to takeoff and land, and are unable to hover. Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) UAVs get around these problems, usually by employing rotors like a helicopter. Now UK-based company AESIR has developed a VTOL UAV that has no external rotating parts, instead relying on a phenomenon known as the Coanda effect to generate lift.

Warplanes: Storage to survive

September 15, 2009
[...]the air force is going to put many, if not most, of its combat
aircraft into storage, and dismiss many of its 50,000 personnel. That
