Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) 4D Trajectory Based

This demonstration project consists of periodic demonstrations of actual and evolving capabilities, and will include corresponding risk assessments. The project has a phased approach with initial concept and requirements definition, performance modeling and simulation, and analyses including operational scenarios, metrics definition and procedures development. This preliminary work transfers to proof-of-concept demonstrations for both laboratory and live flight trials. This demonstration project completely complements and is coordinated with the Department of Denense (DoD) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) National Airspace System (NAS) oriented demonstrations, leveraging community efforts.
