About this event

Unmanned Airvehicle Systems (UAS) applications are usually referred to as 3D or D3, ‘dull, dirty and/or dangerous’.  The primary applications identified and used to date all involve putting the unmanned airvehicle and its payload in environments where the pilot in a manned operation might be significantly at risk of loss of life or dying of boredom.  There is also a cost justification for using UAS;  they can have longer operational duration, cheaper to operate, operated remotely and sometimes autonomously carrying out the mission with the minimum of human intervention and supervision: and they can be deployed in a number of different terrains and for Rotary Wing UAS  not dependent on prepared runways. This presentation looks at the operational benefits and the technological challenges faced in the design and development of a large Rotary Wing Unmanned System.
Presenter: Kieron Jay CEng MIET, Rotary Wing UAS Systems Engineering Manager
