Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), represent an exciting and rapidly developing technology with widespread potential for application in the GeoSciences.
Airborne Research and Innovation operates at the forefront of this new technology and aims to provide highly professional services to researchers including:
- Platform and sensor development and associated support
- Fully supported data acquisitions
- Operational and theoretical training and standardisation
- Equipment loan
We are now operating a broad fleet of UAS in the sub-25kg category.
We have also developed procedures and documented an Operations Manual to professional standards, and intend to quality all crews to GVC standard in the near future.
All facility UAS operations are conducted to the highest standards of safety and regulatory compliance as outlined in our UAS Operations Manual.
