Unmanned aerial systems

In recent times, the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) that are used by several professional military and commercial aviation groups have been tested and successfully operated in the real world. The latest developments and innovations in UAS technology have led to a great deal of research and development into the many different components that comprise UAS technology.

It is important to note the following about unmanned aerial systems. Although these vehicles are capable of completing many tasks previously only possible for manned aircraft, such as surveying, surveillance, reconnaissance, and emergency rescue operations, it is important to note that the technology used to support such tasks is far more advanced and sophisticated than that required to make such flights possible. There is also a significant amount of automation that must be incorporated into the flight.

Although a large number of details must be followed, there are some important features that should be noted when looking at the UAS before investing in a UAV. In the following paragraphs, we look at some of the most common types of unmanned aerial vehicles and their components.

An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is any remote-controlled aircraft or device that uses electronic imaging and/or signal intelligence (signal intelligence means gathering information from air traffic). It is used for surveillance, environmental monitoring, target acquisition, military operations, and scientific research. UAVs also include drones, satellites, or balloons.

A Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPA) is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle that has two or more stages that can be armed. The UAVs that are armed are referred to as Strike Fighters. A combination of weapons that are fired on separate stages allow the pilot to determine if a missile is needed to shoot down the target. This allows the pilot to avoid hitting the target because he or she does not know if a missile is needed or not.

A Reusable Airborne Space Vehicle (RASV) is a hybrid unmanned aerial vehicle and launch vehicle that are used for space applications and have a parachute and pyrotechnic release mechanism. It uses infrared imaging to track and select targets in space and strike them with rockets.

It is also possible to use the parachutes and pyrotechnics of the Reusable Manned Vehicle to escape from an aircraft in mid-air. These systems, which are available as part of the Reusable Space Vehicle concept, allow the pilot to initiate emergency parachute deployments or ejections from the aircraft.

The Rotorcraft Aerial Vehicle or RAV can be used in the same way as the RASV. It is a more primitive type of UAV that is launched, deployed and retrieved using only a small amount of fuel and lightweight materials.

Using carbon dioxide for power source, the Autonomous Aerospatial Remote Sensing System or AARS can remain aloft in a protective layer of carbon dioxide for days or even weeks on end. It uses a laser to map the altitude and terrain using a camera to determine the height of the object. It can hover or fly low over objects and images it down before returning to base.

The Surveillance UAV is another type of unmanned aerial vehicles that are flown by a small remote control helicopter with a video camera that can provide information on terrain and movements. It is a very low-cost and highly versatile method of surveillance that is very easy to maintain and an inexpensive way to gather data on the environment around a specific area.

The use of space-based and ground-based surveillance are changing the face of UAV technology and requiring the use of a large variety of unmanned aerial vehicles. The UAVs are primarily designed to provide essential data on their flight through communications and on-board sensors as well as other onboard data sources.

The results of the research and development undertaken by this industry have enabled the implementation of more reliable, affordable, and consistent unmanned aerial systems that are versatile enough to be used in both military and civilian applications. It is necessary to keep in mind that the UAV industry is still in its early years, but there is a good chance that this type of unmanned aerial vehicle will prove to be very effective and beneficial in the future.
