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.
On the week commencing the 17th June 2019, CASCADE held its first weeklong airfield workshop. The event brought together the entire CASCADE team, along with external collaborators and representatives from industry. Flight testing, collaboration and knowledge sharing were the focus of the event. Several platforms and technologies which have been developed by the CASCADE project … More Highlights from the CASCADE Collaboration Workshop, Llanbedr June 2019
