Unmanned aircraft systems: UAVs design, development and deployment 

Unmanned aircraft systems: UAVs design, development and deployment pdf

Book Description:

Unmanned Aircraft Systems delivers a much-needed introduction to UAV System technology, taking an integrated approach that avoids compartmentalizing the subject. Arranged in four sections, parts 1-3 examine how various engineering disciplines affect the design, development, and deployment of UAS. The fourth section assesses the future challenges and opportunities of UAS.

Technological innovation and increasingly diverse applications are two key drivers of the rapid expansion of UAS technology. The global defense budget for UAS procurement is expanding, and in the future, the market for civilian UAVs is expected to outmatch that of the military. Agriculture, meteorology, conservation, and border control are just a few of the diverse areas in which UAVs are making a significant impact; the author addresses all of these applications, looking at the roles and technology behind both fixed-wing and rotorcraft UAVs.

Leading aeronautical consultant Reg Austin co-founded the Bristol International Remotely Piloted Vehicle (RPV) conferences in 1979, which are now the longest-established UAS conferences worldwide. In addition, Austin has over 40 years of experience in the design and development of UAS. One of Austin’s programs, the “Sprite UAV System,” has been deployed worldwide and operated daily and night, in all weathers.
