Embraer invests in XMobots
Embraer will acquire a minority shareholding in XMobots, Latin America’s largest drone company.Based in São Carlos, Brazil, and founded in 2007, XMobots will use the investment to accelerate its development of medium and large autonomous air vehicles.
The investment is about more than XMobot’s aircraft. The company has developed the XSurvey app to link via Bluetooth with its baseline XRTK 184B aircraft, the XMC sensor and XMobot’s LiPo Pack battery. Its aircraft, in addition to the basic XRTK, include theArator 5C, a flying wing design launched in 2016; the Nauru500C vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, featuring a quadrotor and fixed wing hybrid design to maximize operations; and the Draktor 25A, released in 2020, which features the company’s XFarming software that automatically detects weed bushes for precision spraying, as well as a mapping module.
ASTRONAUTICSCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., Oct 5 (Reuters) - Elon Musk's rocket company SpaceX launched the next long-duration crew of the International Space Station for NASA on Wednesday, including a Russian cosmonaut hitching a ride with two Americans and a Japanese astronaut as part of the mission.
The latest team is being led by Nicole Aunapu Mann, 45, a veteran combat pilot making spaceflight history as both the first indigenous woman being sent to orbit by NASA and the first woman to take the commander's seat of a SpaceX Crew Dragon.
As a registered member of the Wailacki of the Round Valley Indian Tribes, Mann will become the first Native American woman to fly to space. She also is among the first group of 18 astronauts selected for NASA's upcoming Artemis missions, aimed at returning humans to the moon later this decade.
The Crew-5 mission is also notable for the inclusion of Anna Kikina, 38, the lone female cosmonaut on active duty with the Russian space agency Roscosmos.
