Unmanned Aircraft Systems
in Practice

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) become increasingly popular and receive an increasing amount of attention in today’s digital society. In 2017, the colloquium was dedicated to the challenges of their practical use, in particular of small unmanned systems (“drones”), which the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in its classification defines as “open” or “specific”. The focus of the presentations was on the possible dangers of drones for other aviation participants, the signal monitoring of the respective remote controls as well as the monitoring of drones themselfs in an airspace.

The 2017 series ended succesfully on 25th April. The Institutes of Flight Guidance of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Technical University of Braunschweig would like to cordially thank all participants of the 2016 season and especially the domestic and international speakers! The colloquium will be continued in 2018.


Once a year, the public lecture series Kolloquium Flugführung organised by the two Braunschweig Institutes of Flight Guidance gathers flight guidance experts at the DLR site in Braunschweig. The series with an annually changing key topic offers the opportunity to learn interesting facts about research and practice and to take a closer look at this field of aviation from different angles.
