Estonia’s Milrem Robotics has demonstrated the autonomous operation of its THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) during a live-fire event held at the Kolgu range in December 2017. A THeMIS platform configured with FN Herstal’s deFNder remote weapon station was utilised for the live-fire portion of the event, the first time this configuration has been demonstrated in public, while the autonomous operation was conducted by another Type 3 system.
Lockheed Martin is working to extend the endurance of its Fury unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to 15 hours. Fury is a tactical-level UAS that Lockheed Martin is pitching as a substitute for many of the roles currently carried out by medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) platforms. The company plans to increase the flight time through the introduction of a new propulsion system in the form of its developmental 1803 engine, an evolution of the 1802 unit that the aircraft is currently fitted with.
UMS Skeldar has undertaken a week-long flight demonstration programme of its newly configured R-350 rotary-wing unmanned aircraft system (UAS) with Germany’s Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information technology, and In-Service Support (BAAINBw). The demonstration saw the R-350 used as an unmanned mission avionics test (UMAT) platform and equipped with two specialised payloads from UMS Skeldar’s partner, ESG.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
