Concept of Operations of Small Unmanned Aerial Systems: Basis for Airworthiness towards Personal Remote Sensing
Contribution to Book
Handbook of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) have rapidly grown into a significant part of the worldwide aviation budget. However, regulations and official standards have lagged significantly. Within the U.S., there has been significant pressure to develop the regulations to allow commercial and governmental agencies to utilize UASs within the National Airspace System (NAS). The authors propose a concept of operation document that incorporates existing regulations and ensures an acceptable level of performance based on experience with a Personal Remote Sensing (PRS) Unmanned Aerial System (UAS).
