Abstract

Advanced sensor technologies together with customer needs lead to a wider usage of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems in civil, commercial, scientific and research missions. For most of these missions the goal is to gather information from the environment using sensors installed on the platform. The weight, size and power demand of the sensors are important parameters influencing the aircraft design as well as the mission performance. In order to evaluate tradeoff studies regarding the compatibility between the air vehicle, the sensor payload and the mission it is necessary to assess the system performance in a representation of the operational environment. This implies the use of enhanced mission simulation during UAS design. In this paper a method for unmanned air vehicle (UAV), sensor and mission matching issue based on the overall system assessment in the simulated operational is presented.
