A new series: Armada International is now introducing a new regular series of articles on ground robots to cater to this emerging discipline. Three reports will be devoted to this technology for 2006. Interestingly enough, Armada International started to look into robots as early as 1989, issue 6 of that year to be precise. Biass, Eric H. 1090

Season's presents: the end of the year presents are part of a time immemorial tradition around the western world and the unmanned aircraft community seemed to have followed it very closely as 2005 drew to an end. Biass, Eric H. 1115
Size does matter: the annual autumn gathering of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) in October 2005 proved that the US military remains flexible in the rather fluid birth and demise of defence programmes. Many larger projects draw the obvious observers and 'wish list' crowds, but it is the smaller innovations that are beginning to catch more attention. 1807
