Ed. by Richard K. Barnhart et al.

CRC Press


215 pages




The editors (associated with the aviation program at Kansas State U. and with New Mexico State U.'s Physical Science Laboratory's programs on unmanned aircraft systems, or UASs) present a text intended to serve as an introductory non-engineering, non-technical text at the undergraduate level to unmanned aircraft systems. The material is written from a civilian, operational perspective aimed at those who will be making decisions about the deployment of unmanned aerial systems. Chapters cover system elements, the US aviation regulatory system, certificate of authorization process, systems operations, use of UASs for geospatial data, automation and autonomy in UASs, safety assessments, sensors and payloads, human factors, and future trends.
