U.T.SEC 2018: “UAS are an integral part of all risk analyses and security concepts”

Wilfried Joswig, Director of the VfS (Association for Security Technology) is an acknowledged expert in security technologies and applications. He is involved in evaluating new risk situations on a daily basis. It is an indisputable fact that the security sector is constantly facing new challenges as a result of new technologies like digitalisation or unmanned

Will Drones Propel the U.S Marine Corps to New Heights?

At the end of 2017, the Marines purchased approximately 800 quadcopter drones as an addition to each squad. Recently, they have been integrated into nearly all of the squads. It all started in 2016 with a new philosophy conceived at the Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms. It’s called “How an Expeditionary Force Operated […]

Drone Mapping Gets Better and Better: DroneDeploy Releases Live Map, Map Creation in Real-Time

Drone technology is evolving at an incredible pace these days, but few new announcements really offer a really game-changing – or work changing – feature.  This one is different.  A few years ago, the ability to create a map from drone data in real time would have been unthinkable – but now DroneDeploy, the world’s […]

Low current drain battery monitor with pixhawk interface (10 cell)

In-flight monitoring of total battery voltage and individual cell voltage is important for accurately estimating flight time. Monitoring the cell voltages during flight and operating load conditions help to predict battery health and cell degradation. 
We designed a battery monitor board to interface with pixhawk to read the cell voltages of flight battery. We will be doing a 50 piece production run of the boards in the second week of march,2018. Anyone interested in the board, please PM me.
Currently available battery monitors drain over 20mA and will drain the battery if left connected and very few monitors currently support over 6 cells. 
The specs for our monitor are:
Max cell count: 10

Active current drain: <5mA
Total sleep current: < 20uA
Sleep current drain per cell: <1uA

Interface with autopilot: i2c , UART (will implement other protocols if there is interest)
