An Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is an all-encompassing description that encapsulates the aircraft or UAV, the ground-based controller, and the system of communications connecting the two.
Commercial drone flight is slowly becoming a reality as various industries realize the benefits that unmanned flight delivers. UAS will have wide use in fields ranging from first response, disaster relief and precision agriculture to utility inspection, telecommunications, and film and TV production delivering real-world benefits across the globe.
Working in this dynamic field will require the disciplines and expertise of the conventional aviation world as well as developing new capabilities to fill jobs we haven’t even thought of yet. This is revolutionary technology and it’s going to change the world.
