(Phys.org)—Described as the next generation of surveillance, and representing the world's highest resolution camera, the ARGUS-IS, which stands for Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging System, is featured on PBS' NOVA program on drones, which describes the latest technologies behind drones. The program carries a demonstration of the imaging system, which is the result of development work at BAE Systems, a defense, security and aerospace company.

Keven Gambold joined the Royal Air Force in 1992 with a BSc in Psychology and Philosophy from Durham University, England. After flying training on T-37B, T-38A and Hawk TMk1, he was posted to the Tornado GR4 fighter-bomber and completed 7 years on the front-line. There, Keven participated in OP WARDEN (Turkey), OP BOLTON (Kuwait), OP ENGADINE (Kosovo), where he was awarded a Mention in Dispatches, and OP IRAQI FREEDOM, launching the Shormshadow Air-Launched Cruise Missile. He was the Squadron Electronic Warfare Instructor, Laser Targeting Pod lead, a 4-ship lead, Instrument Rating Examiner, Training Officer and had full Electro-Optical qualifications. His 1500 hours included the Tactical Leadership Program, Maple and Green Flags and 14 months in Kuwait.
Keven volunteered for a posting to fly the USAF Predator in 2004 and logged over 1500 hours combat flying, with two deployments to Launch-Recovery Elements, the second as the inaugural Squadron Commander at Tallil Air Base, Iraq. Keven led the flight trials program for the first ever Multi-Aircraft Control (MAC) system and became the Chief of Standards & Evaluation and a member of the cross-industry Advanced Cockpit Working Group. He has chaired several global UAS Conferences and Workshops http://www.uastrainingconference.com/Event.aspx?id=632794 and has written and broadcast numerous Webinars, the most recent of which covers UAS Integration into complex airspace: http://www.defenceiq.com/air-forces-and-military-aircraft/webinars/launching-uavs-into-civil-airpace-an-indian-model/#.UUiSOhyG18E. Keven has also written, and taught numerous international UAS training courses (an example here: http://www.militaryuvs.com/) and in his role as Director for the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators (North America)’s Technical Aviation and Safety Committee, Keven has published peer-reviewed papers on UAS operations in the civil sector. Copies are available on request. He was an active member of (the late) RTCA SC-203 (and now SC-228), and has he has a JAA Commercial Pilots Licence, a Masters in Aeronautical Science (Aeronautics Operations) from ERAU and is a member of AUVSI, Chartered Management Institution, GAPAN, RTCA, AOPA and SAFE. He was a founding member of Unmanned Experts and holds the position of Chief Operations Officer at the UxS global consultancy firm.
