Systems (UAS) have traditionally been used for military applications for a
number of years. Recently, UAS, particularly small UAS (s-UAS), have generated
a lot of interest due to their potential to revolutionize some of the
applications in civilian domains such as emergency management, law enforcement,
infrastructure inspection, precision agriculture, package delivery, and
imaging/surveillance. However, before the use of UAS becomes a reality in
civilian domains, the challenges emanating from safe and reliable integration
of UAS in the National Airspace System (NAS) are extremely critical to be
Given the fact
that there are several potential applications of UAVs, and the inexpensive
nature of these UAS, particularly s-UAS, it is anticipated that, once allowed
by government regulation, there will be an extremely large number of UAVs
flying in the much crowded airspace. This presents several challenges in safe
operation of UAS in terms of management of their traffic so that the required
separation is maintained between manned and unmanned aircraft and other
stationary ground obstacles. Several new architectures and potential solutions
for Unmanned Systems Traffic Management (UTM) have been in proposed recently.
Even though a lot of effort has been spent by both government and industry,
development of an efficient and robust solution for UAS integration into NAS
has been proved to be evasive.
The goal of this
student study project was to systematically study the recent advances, identify
potential issues, and propose new solutions focusing on two aspects of UAS
integration in NAS: "Sense and Avoid" and "Unmanned Systems
Traffic Management (UTM)".
