  • Title: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems Association UAS and RPAS
    Descriptive info: Unmanned Aircraft Systems.. Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems are one and the same thing but come in many different shapes and sizes.. Most have been designed for specific roles and applications but almost all of them can be reconfigured just through a payload interchange to perform a variety of other tasks.. Click on the links below to find out more about these advanced technology platforms:.. UAV/RPA or UAS/RPAS?.. Purpose of a UAS/RPAS.. UAS/RPAS Components.. Advantages of UAVs/RPAs..

  • Title: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems Association UAV or UAS?
    Descriptive info: An Unmanned Aerial, or Air, Vehicle (UAV) is according to MSN Encarta an uncrewed reconnaissance vehicle: an uncrewed aerial vehicle that can fly over combat zones and staging areas, dropping supplies to troops, releasing bombs, carrying out reconnaissance on enemy forces.. This definition would have everyone believe that UAVs are only used in military scenarios.. This is far from the truth.. An unattributed definition used by the US military is: UAVs are capable of operating without an internal pilot; are tethered by a radio control link; and can be preprogrammed for both flight and payload operations prior to launch.. This second definition gives a much clearer perspective on the uses and roles of a UAV.. UAVs differ from ordnance and missiles in that the air vehicle is designed to come back and be re-used.. They also differ from remotely-controlled aircraft and especially small hobby planes in that they operate out of line of sight and at altitudes where a person on the ground cannot readily see them.. Like guided missiles UAVs are sophisicated systems incorporating lightweight airframes, advanced proplusion systems, secure data links, and high technology control systems and payloads.. These air  ...   as all-acronyms.. com has noted 10 including plurals:.. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(s).. Unmanned Aerospace Vehicle(s).. Uninhabited Aircraft Vehicle.. Unmanned Air Vehicle.. Unmanned Airborne Vehicle.. Unmanned Autonomous Vehicle.. Unmanned Vehicle.. Upper Atmosphere Vehicle.. For UAS, all-acronyms.. com has only one aerospace variant, Unmanned Aircraft Systems.. It is perhaps this definition that is the most important.. However within these extensions there is one very important word, Autonomous.. UAVs or UAS will in the future become fully autonomous.. Like advanced artifical intelligence these systems will be able to sense where they are, what they are doing, what they should be doing, where they should go to complete the pre-programmed task and how they can complete that task most efficiently and effectively and with a certain degree of luck return to base.. In the future the UAS rather than the UAV pilot will be the biggest decision-maker during a mission with the UAV pilot just monitoring what the vehicle is doing.. Industry and the regulators have now adopted UAS rather than UAV as the preferred term for Unmanned Aircraft or Aerial Systems as UAS encompasses all aspects of deploying these aircraft and not just the platform itself..

  • Title: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems Association Purpose of a UAS
    Descriptive info: The purpose of a UAS is to deliver a message or package or collect data.. The delivery aspect is not only munitions as in the case of Reaper but it could also be the deployment of a life raft in a maritime search and rescue mission or the deployment of a marker flare to pinpoint a position for subsequent manned investigation or operations.. On a more benign perspective a loitering or long endurance UAS could also provide the communications bridge between two communications systems.. Providing temporary cell or mobile phone coverage is one application that has been muted for the future.. Collection of data is however the most important purpose of a UAS.. UAS can penetrate areas and locations that manned expeditions cannot do without exceptional  ...   is not a UAS even though the onboard systems have a lot of similarities.. These vehicles are not designed to come back.. The secondary purpose is that it has a commercial justification.. The user is paying for the delivery or collection service.. In terms of collection, the data has a value.. In terms of delivery the package delivered has a consequent or subsequent value.. This is where UAS differ from remotely-controlled or operated aircraft: UAS are involved in paid aerial work and any remotely-controlled aircraft carrying out a mission for payment must be classified as a UAS and must come under the national and international regulations and certifications governing aerial work.. What a UAS is.. not.. used for is recreational purposes where other specific operating conditions apply..

  • Title: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems Association Applications
    Descriptive info: UAS Applications.. UAS applications are usually referred to as 3D or D3, dull, dirty and/or dangerous.. The primary applications identified and used to date all involve putting the UAV and its payload in environments where the pilot in a manned operation might be significantly at risk of losing his life or dying of boredom.. There is also a cost justification for using UAS.. They can have longer operational duration: they can require less maintenance:  ...   carrying out the mission with the minimum of human intervention and supervision: and they can be deployed in a number of different terrains and are not always dependent on prepared runways.. Some argue that the use of UAS in the future will be a more responsible approach to certain airspace operations from an environmental, ecological and human risk perspective.. There are of course marked differences and similarities between the civilian or commercial and military applications..

  • Title: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems Association UAS Components
    Descriptive info: A UAS is just not the vehicle that flies.. An Unmanned Aircraft or Aerial System can be divided into three succinct elements:.. The vehicle or platform itself.. Its payload, and.. Its Ground Control System or Station.. These three elements can be further subdivided:.. The Vehicle or Platform.. The airframe.. The propulsion system.. The flight control computer or system.. The precision navigation system.. Sense Avoid System.. The vehicle is the means to deliver the payload to its optimal position.. UAS operate at all altitudes and the propulsion system has to be tailored to the mission.. Electric engines are used for silent operations whereas UAS operating over long distances and at high altitude need jet engines.. The flight control system ensures the UAS follows the pre-programmed or Ground Control Station-updated mission flight path in the most economical way avoiding obstacles and other air users.. The Payload.. Electro-optical Sensing Systems and Scanners.. Infra-Red Systems.. Radars.. Dispensable  ...   usually in a dull, dirty or dangerous environment.. The payload is the most important element of the whole UAS as this determines the payback or the economic or other gains.. The vehicle itself does not deliver the message or the data: it merely gets the payload to the best location.. The Ground Control System or Station.. An avionics flight display.. Navigation Systems.. System Health Monitoring and Prognostics Display.. Graphical Images and Position Mapping.. Secure Communications Systems.. Inward Data Processing.. The Ground Control Station (GCS) in tomorrow s UAS environment will be part of an integral part of managed airspace.. It will house the UAS pilot and the UAS commander and will appear to the outside world as if both people are actually on board the air vehicle.. To achieve all this, the GCS must have secure communications with both the air vehicle and the international, national, regional and local air traffic management infrastructure..

  • Title: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems Association Advantages of UAVs
    Descriptive info: Advantages of UAS.. The advantages of using an Unmanned Air Vehicle, relative to use of a manned aircraft, are that the UAV:.. does not contain, or need, a qualified pilot on board.. can enter environments that are dangerous to human life.. reduces the exposure risk of the aircraft operator.. can stay in the  ...   raster scan of a region, day-after-day, night-after-night in complete darkness, or, in fog, under computer control:.. performing a geological survey.. performing visual or thermal imaging of a region.. measuring cell phone, radio, or, TV coverage over any terrain.. can be programmed to complete the mission autonomously even when contact with its GCS is lost..

  • Title: Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems Association ASTRAEA Programme
    Descriptive info: The ASTRAEA Programme.. The ASTRAEA (Autonomous Systems Technology Related Airborne Evaluation Assessment) programme aims to enable the routine operation of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) in civil airspace for commercial purposes.. UAS challenge the key regulatory assumptions that have existed for the last century by removing the pilot from the aircraft, operating the aircraft autonomously and moving the human supervision to the ground.. The ASTRAEA hypothesis is that this challenge can only be satisfied by innovation in key technology areas of sense and avoid, autonomy, communications, operations and human/system interaction.. A fundamental requirement of the programme is to ensure that UAS can be integrated into the existing manned aviation environment in an equivalent, safe and transparent fashion.. This will require a level of autonomy beyond that required by today s military systems and will bring with it issues of legality, security and safety, which will have to be addressed.. The ASTRAEA programme has taken a systems approach to addressing the challenge of introducing UAS into all classes of non-segregated airspace.. By the end of  ...   The technologies developed under ASTRAEA will also find application in manned aircraft, potentially enabling single crew operation of large aircraft, and in other domains.. This year s conference will take place at the America Square Conference Centre, 1 America Square, 17 Crosswall, London EC3N 2LB on 20 and 21 November 2012.. It is designed to share the learning achieved through the programme.. It will focus on the four key themes.. of.. Communications, Security Spectrum; Autonomy Decision Making; Ground Operations Human Systems Interaction and Detect Avoid.. Significant time will be spent on each with the opportunity to ask questions within each theme session, in addition to a general forum.. Additionally, plenty of the project partners staff will be on hand to discuss experiences in more detail in a less formal environment around extended meal and break times.. The amount of knowledge available for sharing has caused the conference to take place over two days.. Attendance will be free so early booking is recommended.. To read more about ASTRAEA and to see if registration is open,..
