How an ‘empathetic squadron’ can accelerate adoption of uncrewed aircraft systems for commercial applications

Apr 12, 2022

Introducing the ‘empathetic squadron’ – a collaborative force of UAVs with a dynamic hierarchy of command and control, proven as a very effective method across all types of highly complex operations. We believe this model has the capacity to form an operational fleet of UAVs that is far greater than the sum of its individual parts...

LEO satellite connectivity means the opportunities are out there, but how do we extract maximum value?

Nov 24, 2021

LEO (low earth orbit) connectivity is gaining momentum, propelled by reusable infrastructure solutions that have brought the launch cost of a satellite down to somewhere between one hundred thousand and a million dollars. The new layers of LEO connectivity promise a tantalizing array of public and enterprise services – but one big question looms large. How can we overcome the remaining challenges and seize maximum value from the sector?
