Welcome to the RAeS UAS Specialist Group
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Specialist Group focuses on all aspects of unmanned aviation across industry, academia, and government.
A UAS is an unmanned aircraft system - an aircraft that has no pilot on-board but which is remotely piloted. UAS can be manually controlled aircraft, operated through pre-programmed flight plans, or operated by more complex automated systems involving on-board sensors and/or processed data.
UAS are used by the military but are increasingly being used by civil operators for civil operations including aerial photography, surveying and inspection, as well as in support of emergency services and disaster management teams.
The UAS Specialist Group holds an annual conference and regular workshops. Further details are provided on our Events page.

Corporate Partner Event
Dame DeAnne will give her assessment of Britain's current economic situation: is the recovery sustainable or is it just a temporary bounceback from the recession, propped up by unnaturally low interest rates and threatened by the outcome of the Scottish referendum, the election next May and the possible vote in 2017 on leaving the EU?
This Flight Test Lecture will be delivered by Peter Kosogorin, Project Test Pilot, Military Air Information and Information, BAE Systems.
