2017: Unmanned Aircraft Systems in Practice

2017: 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.
