Using an evolutionary algorithm-based, multi-objective optimisation technique, we considered mission planning factors such as area of search area coverage, restricted airspace constraints, maximum ground control station range, adverse weather effects, airspace collision avoidance, energy minimisation, path linearity, named area of analysis emphasis, and sensor performance.
The objective of this task was to define and baseline the information set required by an intelligent system to fly safely in UK airspace.
The purpose of this study was to generate a set of piloting rules and behaviours that could be incorporated into an expert rule base system for use on UAS platforms.
The remit of this report is to provide a foundation for Enhanced Rule Based Decision Making processes when considering the operation of UAVs in controlled airspace, particularly Terminal Control Areas.
The purpose of The Great Circles work in this project was to define the work required to research, specify and document licence standards, training requirements and potential course content that could be used as basis for consultation with national and other regulatory authorities.
