In recent years, there has been a tremendous growth in the unmanned aerial system market, for various operational requirements and scenarios.
Moreover, in nowadays the demands are also derived in from the civil market, which brings new requirements which were not familiar to the classical military industries.
As rapid requirements evolve, with new “customers” and new “players”, the methodology for UAS R&D adapts itself to the new market demands.
The talk would provide a slight insight to current R&D efforts in the UAS world, focused in Advanced Propulsion systems, new Aero-Mechanical conceptual designs,
and future tactical and multi-rotor UAS Integrated solutions.
The discussion would suggest academia and industry a distinctive approach for promoting R&D activities.
Such realm could help creating supporting mechanisms for future joint collaboration of Academia-Industry-Government programs in the Civil and Military UAS developments.
