Remotely Piloted Air Systems
Dr Stephen D Prior
Reader in Unmanned Air Vehicles within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton

Autonomous drones are becoming integrated into the civilian airspace, from the armed forces using them as reconnaissance and weapons platforms, to Google, Facebook and Amazon proposing their use as a last-mile delivery system. Challenges include, efficient propulsion, Non-line of sight (NLOS) communication, aerial docking (Swarms) and operations where GPS is denied, blocked or spoofed.
