In today’s digital society, the use of unmanned aviation systems is becoming increasingly commonplace and the focus of significant interest. This year’s Flight Guidance Colloquium will explore the challenges faced by practical use, in particular for smaller, unmanned aviation systems (‘drones’) which the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) classifies as ‘open’ or ‘specific’. The talks will focus on possible risks presented by drones for other aircraft, signal monitoring for the respective remote control systems, and monitoring of drones in airspace.

The DLR Institute of Flight Guidance and TU Braunschweig warmly invite you to attend the event at Braunschweig Research Airport.
