Event Title

CEU Session #6 - Assessing sUAS Operator Flight Behavior & Potential Interference with Aviation Operations in Controlled Airspace Using Aeroscope

Location

Antigua Room

Start Date

Description

The information presented in this discussion details an ongoing study that measures the detection of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) in controlled airspace. Specialized equipment was used to collect telemetry data, which allowed researchers to determine sUAS position in relation to cooperative manned aircraft. Further analysis of possible “well-clear” or airspace violations was used to infer potential operator behaviors that may result in un-safe sUAS operations near controlled airports. The discussion will address concerns and propose possible mitigation strategies to decrease the probability of aircraft incursions near highly trafficked airports.
