Airbus Helicopters is developing an on board image processing management system to enable automatic approaches and landing in challenging conditions for helicopters, as well as paving the way for future sense & avoid applications on autonomous vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) systems. Codenamed Eagle, for Eye for Autonomous Guidance and Landing Extension, this system federates the entire helicopters image processing functions and feeds them into the avionics system, thus improving the crews situation awareness and reducing the pilots workload by automating and securing approaches, take-off and landing in the most demanding environments
Micro drones which can be printed on the field for instant reconnaissance missions were demonstrated by US Marines as part of operation 'Inherent Resolve' to drive out ISIS Militants from Iraq and Syria. The Nibbler drone was created through 3D printing to be low cost, easily repaired and have simple maintenance to allow Marines to use it
A prototype of the worlds first 3D printed ship propeller has been developed by a consortium that includes Damen Shipyards Group, RAMLAB, Promarin, Autodesk and Bureau Veritas. The 1,350mm diameter propeller, named WAAMpeller was fabricated from a Nickel Aluminium Bronze (NAB) alloy at RAMLAB (Rotterdam Additive Manufacturing LAB) in the Port of Rotterdam
