The public debate over civilian use of drones is intensifying. Variously called "unmanned aircraft systems", "unmanned aerial vehicles", "remotely piloted aircraft", or simply "drones", they are available for purchase by anyone for a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. They have strikingly useful capabilities. They can carry high-definition video cameras, infrared imaging equipment, sensors for aerial surveying and mapping. They can stream their video in real time. They have GPS, inertial guidance, magnetic compasses, altimeters, and sonic ground sensors that permit them to fly a preprogrammed flightplan, take off and land autonomously, hover and orbit autonomously with the flick of a switch on the DRone Operator’s ("DROPs") console. The benefits they can confer on law enforcement, journalism, land-use planning, real estate sales, critical infrastructure protection and environmental preservation activities are obvious. However, their proliferation in response to these demands will present substantial risks to aviation safety. How to ensure the safety of drone operations perplexes aviation regulators around the world. They are inexpensive consumer products, unsuited for traditional requirements for manned aircraft costing hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars and flown only by licensed pilots who have dedicated significant parts of their lives and their wealth to obtaining licenses. Regulatory agencies in Europe and Asia are ahead of US regulators in creating spaces for commercial use. Over the next several years, legal requirements must be crystallized, existing operators of helicopter and airplanes must refine their policy positions and their business plans to take the new technologies into account, and all businesses from the smallest entrepreneur to large conglomerates must decide whether and how to use them. Domesticating Drones offers rigorous engineering, economics, legal and policy theory and doctrine on this important and far-reaching development within aviation.

Small Unmanned Fixed-wing Aircraft Design is the essential guide to designing, building and testing fixed wing UAVs (or drones). It deals with aircraft from two to 150 kg in weight and is based on the first-hand experiences of the world renowned UAV team at the UK’s University of Southampton. The book covers both the practical aspects of designing, manufacturing and flight testing and outlines and the essential calculations needed to underpin successful designs. It describes the entire process of UAV design from requirements definition to configuration layout and sizing, through preliminary design and analysis using simple panel codes and spreadsheets to full CFD and FEA models and on to detailed design with parametric CAD tools. Its focus is on modest cost approaches that draw heavily on the latest digital design and manufacturing methods, including a strong emphasis on utilizing off-the-shelf components, low cost analysis, automated geometry modelling and 3D printing. It deliberately avoids a deep theoretical coverage of aerodynamics or structural mechanics; rather it provides a design team with sufficient insights and guidance to get the essentials undertaken more pragmatically. The book contains many all-colour illustrations of the dozens of aircraft built by the authors and their students over the last ten years giving much detailed information on what works best. It is predominantly aimed at under-graduate and MSc level student design and build projects, but will be of interest to anyone engaged in the practical problems of getting quite complex unmanned aircraft flying. It should also appeal to the more sophisticated aero-modeller and those engaged on research based around fixed wing UAVs.

Simon Sebag Montefiore, Bestseller-Autor und Russland-Experte, schildert in seiner ebenso spannenden wie unterhaltsamen Biographie ›Die Romanows: Glanz und Untergang der Zarendynastie 1613 - 1918‹ die sagenumwobene Dynastie, die Russland bis heute prägt. Wie kein anderes Adelsgeschlecht sind die Romanows der Inbegriff von schillerndem Prunk, Macht, Dekadenz und Grausamkeit. Über 300 Jahre dominierten sie das russische Reich, mehr als 20 Zaren und Zarinnen gingen aus dem Geschlecht hervor, allesamt getrieben von unbändigem Machthunger und rücksichtslosem Willen zu herrschen – einige dem Wahnsinn näher als dem Genie. Simon Sebag Montefiore erzählt die Saga dieser unglaublichen Familie, in der Rivalität, Giftmorde und sexuelle Exzesse regelrecht auf der Tagesordnung standen. Basierend auf neuester Forschung und unbekanntem Archivmaterial zeichnet er die Schicksale und politischen Verwicklungen nach. Weder zuvor noch danach gab es ein so gewaltiges Reich, in dem sich Glanz und Grausamkeit auf so unheilvolle Weise verbündeten. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen, prächtige Ausstattung. »Exzellent! Im Vergleich dazu ist Game of Thrones das reinste Kaffeekränzchen.« Antony Beevor »Als läse man zwanzig packende Romane in einem Band zusammengefasst.« The Bookseller »Die glorreiche Geschichte der Romanow-Dynastie, voll von Blut, Sex und Tränen.« Daily Telegraph »Ein beindruckendes Buch, das gründliche Recherche mit exzellenter Prosa vereint.« The Times »Montefiores Reise durch die 300 Jahre der Romanows gleicht einer Studie über Brutalität, Sex und Macht, absolut fesselnd [...], die Recherche ist akribisch und der Stil packend.« The Observer

Schweine züchten, Rentiere scheiden. Rauhe wortkarge Burschen zu seinen Freunden zählen. Schnee, Sauna, Eis- baden. Weite, leere Landschaft. Nordlicht. Marianne hat sich in den ersten Jahren sehr wohlgefühlt in Lappland, mit ihrem Jouni. Weit weg von ihrer eigenen, gut situierten Familie in Kirkkonummi bei Helsinki. Als dann Lenne geboren wird, scheint ihrer aller Leben perfekt im Gleis zu laufen. Aber dann zerbricht etwas: Lenne bockt in der Schule, weil seine Eltern sich nur noch streiten. Das Leben in Einöde und Eis hat für Marianne nach herben Schicksalsschlägen seinen Charme verloren. So geht es auch ihrem Mann Jouni, der von materiellen Sorgen gedrückt wird. Für ihn gibt es jedoch keine Alternative zur Existenz eines Rentierzüchters in Lappland, so hart das auch sein mag. Erst igelt Marianne sich ein, kann nicht mehr aufstehen. Dann sucht sie Zerstreuung. Als Lenne einen neuen jungen Lehrer, Jyri, bekommt, dem er sich bald anvertraut, wird es kompliziert. Denn Marianne fühlt sich zu ihm hingezogen. Und auch Jyri ist sie alles andere als gleichgültig. Mentula zeichnet in seinem sehr gelobten Debütroman den aktuellen Konflikt zwischen Norden und Süden, ländlicher und städtischer Existenz sehr feinfühlig nach, mit viel Sinn für Komik. Gleichzeitig vermittelt er ein Bild des Lebens in Lappland, das selbst vielen Finnen nicht mehr vertraut ist, weil es in der zeitgenössischen Literatur kaum geschildert wird. Der Konflikt ist hochaktuell. Gespannt verfolgt man die dramatische Entwicklung der Figuren, den Zerfall einer modernen Familie. Mooses Mentula, 1976 geboren, hat lange in Nordfinnland und Lappland gelebt. Heute leitet er in der Nähe von Helsinki eine Schule. »Nordlicht – Südlicht« (»Isän kanssa kahden«) ist sein erster Roman. Die zuvor veröffentlichte Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten, »Musta timantti« (»Schwarzer Diamant«), wurde vor allem für die Klarheit ihres Stils gerühmt.

Es ist das Enthüllungsbuch, das die Präsidentschaft von Donald Trump erschüttert: Michael Wolffs «Feuer und Zorn» ist ein eindrucksvolles Sittengemälde der amerikanischen Politik unter Trump. Im Mittelpunkt ein Präsident, den seine Mitarbeiter wie ein kleines Kind behandeln, und der umgeben ist von Inkompetenz, Intrigen und Verrat. Der Bestseller-Autor Wolff beschreibt das Chaos, das in den ersten Monaten im Weißen Haus geherrscht hat, er enthüllt, wie nah die Russland-Verbindung an Trump herangerückt ist und wie es zum Rauswurf des FBI-Chefs Comey kam. Und er liefert erstaunliche Details über das Privatleben dieses Präsidenten. Über zweihundert Interviews hat Wolff mit den engsten Mitarbeitern des US-Präsidenten geführt, darunter auch der ehemalige Chef-Berater Stephen Bannon: Noch nie ist es einem Journalisten gelungen, das Geschehen im Weißen Haus so genau nachzuzeichnen. Herausgekommen ist das einzigartige Porträt eines Präsidenten, der selbst nie damit gerechnet hat, die Wahl zu gewinnen. Michael Wolffs Bericht aus dem Weißen Haus unter Trump ist in den USA ein Bestseller: ein aktuelles politisches Buch, das das sich wie ein Königsdrama von Shakespeare liest.

Sie leben nicht. Aber sie töten. Blutiger Drohnenangriff auf eine Pilgerstätte im Irak. Ein weiterer Angriff trifft eine kalifornische Universität. Die Biologin Linda McKinney ahnt nichts davon: Sie erforscht gerade eine besonders aggressive Spezies afrikanischer Ameisen, als sie mitten im Dschungel gekidnappt wird. Ihr Entführer heißt Odin, und er hat ihr offenbar das Leben gerettet. Wer sind die Mächte, die Lindas Forschungen zur Schwarmintelligenz unterdrücken wollen? Während sich in den USA grauenhafte Bombardements häufen und in den hintersten Winkeln des Planeten Millionen fliegender Tötungsmaschinen vom Band laufen, macht sich das Team um Odin und McKinney daran, die Menschheit vor der Vernichtung durch ihren eigenen technologischen Fortschritt zu retten ... Der neue Roman vom «Jules Verne des digitalen Zeitalters» (Frank Schirrmacher): visionär, verstörend, einzigartig. «Eine exemplarische Spitzenleistung eines kaum analysierten Genres. Übertreibung braucht Suarez kaum.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «Mit diesem perfekten Mix aus nervenzerfetzender Spannung und verständlicher Wissenschaftlichkeit etabliert sich Daniel Suarez in diesem spannenden Thriller als der legitime Erbe von Michael Crichton.» (Publishers’ Weekly) «Ein souverän geschriebener Thriller, bei dem wir uns am Ende nicht fragen, ob diese Fiktion eines Tages Wirklichkeit wird, sondern wann.» (Kirkus Reviews) «Dieser Roman ist näher an der Wirklichkeit, als die meisten Menschen glauben.» (Wired)
