The goal of CASCADE is to accelerate the exploitation of aerial robotics across a wide range of science and industry applications. Through fundamental research and case studies, we will advance the understanding and technologies required to allow routine operation of advanced aerial robotic systems. Common system architectures will be developed and employed together with their associated risk and reliability models. There will also be application specific technology deliverables that meet the needs of current and emerging users of aerial robots linked to the CASCADE case studies. We will shape the technological and regulatory standards upon which a safe and commercially and scientifically vibrant industry can grow.
The Unmanned Air Systems – A Capability and Research Landscape Review was created by a partnership among some of the CASCADE members and industrial partners. The University of Southampton, Thales and QuinetiQ produced this document in 2019 as part of a ‘horizon scanning in unmanned aircraft systems’ exercise for DSTL. The 189-page document contains a … More Unmanned Air Systems – A Capability and Research Landscape Review
