Drones could help save soldiers’ lives by delivering blood on demand

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, drones, military, robotics/AI

Getting blood to a wounded soldier could be the difference between life and death. A drone swarm is one way to make that happen in battle.


Blood is usually a finite quality on a battlefield. Battles can cause a number of injuries, from the minor to the critical. If a soldier can get the wound closed in time, they can staunch the loss, but keeping the patient alive may require an influx of new blood. As medics work to aid their comrades, they could receive help from an unusual source: delivery drones, bringing literal fresh blood to the battlefield.

A drone swarm capable of delivering blood was part of Autonomous Advance Force 4.0, an exercise by the United Kingdom’s armed forces in which Royal Marines Commandos trained with modern technology for future war. The July exercise took place in Cumbria and Dorset, with a release announced July 17.

Dubai makes its own RAIN to tackle 122F heat: Drones blast clouds with electrical charge to produce

Posted by in categories: business, drones, energy

Dubai uses drones to electrically charge clouds, causing tortential rains in one of the driest nations on Earth. Until now, such experiments had been done succeessfully from the ground only.

Autonomous flight algorithm beats ‘world-class’ human drone racing pilots [video]

Posted by in categories: drones, information science, robotics/AI

There are many reasons for drones to be quick. The professional drone racing circuit aside, speed bodes well when you are searching for survivors on a disaster site, or delivering cargo, or even inspecting critical infrastructure. But how do you get something done in the shortest possible time with limited battery life when you have to navigate through obstacles, changing speeds, and altitude? You use an algorithm.

Dubai is making its own fake rain to beat 122F heat

Posted by in categories: drones, geoengineering

Its cloud seeding operations are part of an ongoing mission to generate precipitation in the Middle East country, which has an average rainfall of just four inches.


The enhanced rain is created using drone technology that unleashes electrical charges into clouds in order for them to clump together and form precipitation.

The National reported the heavy rainfall caused waterfalls to appear in the city of Ail Ain and made driving conditions hazardous.

The Greek Laser Weapon That Hits Drones Every 2–3 Seconds

Posted by in categories: business, drones, military, robotics/AI

The inventor of the first robot in Greece, Konstantinos Soukos, has pushed Greece into a new era by creating laser weapons that target drones.

When the inventor and businessman Konstantinos Soukos built the first robot in Greece in 1985, he did not imagine that 36 years later he would supply many military forces across the world.

Drone swarms are coming to the Middle East and Israel is leading the way

Posted by in categories: drones, military, robotics/AI

Drone swarms are a new concept and are linked to the development of artificial intelligence and networked military units, a futuristic battlefield application that uses the latest advances in technology.


The use of this kind of technology in conflict has raised concerns for years as human-rights groups decried the advent of “killer robots.” Evidence shows that what is actually happening is not the creation of “killer robots,” but rather the use of technology to enable drones and other autonomous or unmanned systems to work together.

Why this matters is because other countries in the region are working on new technologies as well. Iran used drones and cruise missiles to attack Saudi Arabia in September 2019. Turkey has built a drone that reportedly “hunted down” people in Libya, although much remains shrouded in mystery regarding how autonomous the drone was and whether it really hunted down adversaries using artificial intelligence.

Posted by in categories: drones, Elon Musk, robotics/AI, space travel

Meet ‘A Shortfall of Gravitas.’


The drone fleet used by SpaceX to catch falling rockets now has a third autonomous ship, whimsically called “A Shortfall of Gravitas.”

Founder Elon Musk unveiled the newest floating rocket landing pad on Twitter Friday (July 9) along with a dramatic video from a flying drone circling the ship.
