Welcome to the RAeS UAS Specialist Group

The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Specialist Group focuses on all aspects of unmanned aviation across industry, academia, and government.

A UAS is an unmanned aircraft system - an aircraft that has no pilot on-board but which is remotely piloted. UAS can be manually controlled aircraft, operated through pre-programmed flight plans, or operated by more complex automated systems involving on-board sensors and/or processed data.

UAS are used by the military but are increasingly being used by civil operators for civil operations including aerial photography, surveying and inspection, as well as in support of emergency services and disaster management teams.

The UAS Specialist Group holds an annual conference and regular workshops. Further details are provided on our Events page.

The Civil Aviation Authority provide guidance on flying drones and unmanned aircraft. Full details and guidance can be found via the CAA website
