Unmanned Aerial Systems

An Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) has three components:
  • An autonomous or human-operated control system which is usually on the ground or a ship but may be on another airborne platform.
  • An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).
  • A command and control (C2) system - sometimes referred to as a communication, command and control (C3) system - to link the two.
