  American aviation is on the verge of an unmanned revolution. Technological advances in unmanned aircraft systems (“UAS,” also known as “drones”) have enabled UAS to rival the manned. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), aka remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) or the popular term “drones,” are flown autonomously and/or without a pilot on board the aircraft. UAS will eventually be integrated into the national airspace system (NAS), interacting with other aircraft in a . UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS: INNOVATION, INTEGRATION, SUCCESSES, AND CHALLENGES, MA Chairman Thune, Senator Nelson, Members of the Committee: Thank you for the opportunity to appear before you today. My name is Earl Lawrence, Director of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Office. Issues Concerning Integration of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in Civil Airspace November Matthew T. DeGarmo Based on an assessment of the issues, this document identifies ten recommended actions and can carry a lethal or non-lethal payload. Ballistic or semi-ballistic vehicles, cruise missiles, and artillery projectiles.

Title: Unmanned Aircraft Systems: Integration into the National Airspace System Report Date: 15 April Page Count: 40 Word Count: Key Terms: UAS, NAS, Drones, UAV, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Classification: Unclassified Although the Department of Defense (DoD) has a critical need to be able to develop and. Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles What men do in aircraft and why machines can do it better. “An effective UCAV will be enabled in the next century as the result of the simultaneous. optimization of information flow, aircraft performance, and mission effectiveness. The. This book provides a complete overview of the theory, design, and applications of unmanned aerial vehicles. It covers the basics, including definitions, attributes, manned vs. unmanned, design considerations, life cycle costs, architecture, components, air vehicle, payload, communications, data link, and ground control stations.   In January , RPV companies were redesignated as Marine unmanned aerial vehicle squadrons (VMUs), transferred to the aviation combat element (ACE), and .

Unmanned aircraft, drones, or UASs are generic terms that describe a category or class of remotely-piloted aircraft used for non-recreational purposes and intended for commercial, military, governmental, or scientific purpose.3 Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been widely used in combat operations since Operation Desert Storm in The broad. of Defense-Federal Aviation Administration (OSD-FAA) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Airspace Integration Initiative. The Airspace Integration Plan is intended to provide the reader with background information, program status, and goals for the integration of . Unmanned Aircraft Systems: International Symposium On Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, UAV'08 Kimon P. Valavanis, Paul Oh, Les A. Piegl Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) have seen unprecedented levels of growth during the last decade in both military and civilian domains. For example, the aviation community and the FAA will expect UAVs to comply with Code of Federal Regulations 14 CFR Part , Right of Way Rules, often quoted as the “see and avoid” concept. New ASTM Committee F38 on Unmanned Air Vehicle Systems will have to produce standards to accomplish this task that are acceptable to the aviation.
