U-SCUAR Project Research SAIL III and IV Ops
by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian M. Crosby
The presence of open category operations restricts the current use of unmanned vehicles to a narrow scope of applications, limiting their ability to be deployed in other beneficial use cases with great value and high operational complexity.
In response to this issue, the U-SCUAR consortium was formed to conduct advanced research in the field of unmanned systems. The goal of the project is to enable the safe use of unmanned vehicles in advanced operations such as firefighting, maritime rescue, and coastal surveillance. The consortium seeks to develop a comprehensive system capable of operation in medium-risk SAIL III and IV operational scenarios in line with the SORA methodology and in compliance with the requirements of the European regulations on UAS.
In recognition of its strong strategic, technological, and innovative nature, the U-SCUAR project was made a…
