Most aerospace technologies cannot hope to match the rate of progress enshrined in Moore's Law—the observation that microchip performance doubles every 18-24 months. But in small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), where payload size, weight and power are critical, rapid progress in communication, sensor and even power electronics is paying speedier dividends. AeroVironment and Insitu, leaders in the small UAS market, have introduced gimbaled sensors that are both smaller and more capable. ...
