  • Dispelling Myths about JAUS

    At Neya, we’re big believers in interoperability through standards compliance.  Many of us have a long history with the Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS), as well as the UAS Control Segment (UCS) Architecture.  We’ve even been known to flirt with STANAG-4586 from time to time.  As proponents, particularly of JAUS, I often hear comments […]

  • Preparing for a Robotics Field Test

    Most robotics programs inevitably reach a phase of development in which the system must be tested in the field: where the environment and usage scenarios closely reflect the conditions in which the robot is to ultimately be used. This migration from the “lab” environment can require increased logistics overhead costs stemming from additional support personnel, […]
