In addition there will be a post conference workshop on Mission Planning for UAS: Current and Future Capabilities.
Due to the nature of UAS command and control there are several critical considerations that need to be understood for UAS mission planning: Extended transit time, extended loiter time, payload(s), airspace integration, multiple missions in a single sortie, control of the platform, lost contact procedures, threats, countermeasures, level of automation, possibility of autonomous operations, loss of aircraft.
This workshop will explore these factors and how they affect both planning and execution across the range of military operations. Workshop delegates will get the opportunity to evaluate how UAV's are being using in combat operations around the world, both in conventional and unconventional warfare.
