ABSTRACT

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs), Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPASs), or commonly used "drones" all describe one and the same thing: an aircraft or aircraft system controlled from a remote without a human pilot onboard. No matter how you call them, they are becoming the most popular, skyrocketing sector in aviation. JARUS, EASA, FAA, and other national CAAs introduce a law for UAVs operations to secure all airspace users' safety. SESAR has launched a U-Space demonstrators network to speed up the implementation of the Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) systems. At the same time, scientists, researchers, and developers all over the World work on new measurement sensors, actuators, navigation, and control systems to support reliability, simplify control and include maximum autonomy in flight. This Special Session focuses on their work to present modern metrology and instrumentation developed for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
