Tactical VTOL RPAS for Defense & Security applications – solving the challenges of mission endurance versus data gathering
Wednesday, October 07, 2020: 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
DescriptionAs we continue to develop various RPAS platforms and data management systems, we are still yet faced with the issue of mission endurance versus data gathering. With the ongoing integration and development of various platforms, how do we jam as many sensors as we can on a single platform and still meet the endurance challenge while gathering the precious data required by the end-user. This panel composed of experts in platform development, payload integration and data sharing will wrestle with the issue and share both lessons learned and proposed approaches to effectively face the challenges of high capacity VTOL platforms versus data management. Among the anticipated points of discussion, let us mention: - Improving design and customization of VTOL vehicles and platforms. - Enhancing mission efficiency through autonomy and multi-agent paradigms. - Enhancing innovation and development within the VTOL ecosystem. Part of the discussion will be also focused on the impact of the presented solutions in other industry sectors and application domains, e.g., humanitarian and emergency response.
