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.
NEWS AND EVENTS
Following on from two previous related events, the aim of this workshop will be to initiate a process that delivers an industry-wide approach towards achieving Maintenance Credits and will focus on two areas in particular:
• Data interoperability standards
• Early engagement with regulatory bodies when introducing new IVHM technologies
Related areas including the process of achieving maintenance credits, the required evidence base and regulatory hurdles will also be considered.
This lecture will be given by Dr Volker Damann, Head of the Space Medicine Office at the European Space Agency.
This conference aims to explore the current and future capabilities of platforms and weapon systems. This event is classified and open to UK nationals only.
