This book presents, in a comprehensive way, current unmanned aviation regulation, airworthiness certification, special aircraft categories, pilot certification, federal aviation requirements, operation rules, airspace classes and regulation development models. It discusses unmanned aircraft systems levels of safety derived mathematically based on the corresponding levels for manned aviation. It provides an overview of the history and current status of UAS airworthiness and operational regulation worldwide. Existing regulations have been developed considering the need for a complete regulatory framework for UAS. It focuses on UAS safety assessment and functional requirements, achieved in terms of defining an “Equivalent Level of Safety”, or ELOS, with that of manned aviation, specifying what the ELOS requirement entails for UAS regulations. To accomplish this, the safety performance of manned aviation is first evaluated, followed by a novel model to derive reliability requirements for achieving target levels of safety (TLS) for ground impact and mid-air collision accidents.It discusses elements of a viable roadmap leading to UAS integration in to the NAS. For this second edition of the book almost all chapters include major updates and corrections. There is also a new appendix chapter.

Given the popularity of drones and the fact that they are easy and cheap to buy, it is generally expected that the ubiquity of drones will significantly increase within the next few years. This raises questions as to what is technologically feasible (now and in the future), what is acceptable from an ethical point of view and what is allowed from a legal point of view. Drone technology is to some extent already available and to some extent still in development. The aim and scope of this book is to map the opportunities and threats associated with the use of drones and to discuss the ethical and legal issues of the use of drones. This book provides an overview of current drone technologies and applications and of what to expect in the next few years. The question of how to regulate the use of drones in the future is addressed, by considering conditions and contents of future drone legislation and by analyzing issues surrounding privacy and safeguards that can be taken. As such, this book is valuable to scholars in several disciplines, such as law, ethics, sociology, politics and public administration, as well as to practitioners and others who may be confronted with the use of drones in their work, such as professionals working in the military, law enforcement, disaster management and infrastructure management. Individuals and businesses with a specific interest in drone use may also find in the nineteen contributions contained in this volume unexpected perspectives on this new field of research and innovation. Bart Custers is Associate Professor and Head of Research at eLaw, the Center for Law and Digital Technologies at Leiden University, The Netherlands. He has presented his work at international conferences in the United States, China, Japan, the Middle East and throughout Europe and has published over 80 scientific, professional and popularizing publications, including three books.

This volume's contributors offer a new critical language through which to explore and assess the historical, juridical, geopolitical, and cultural dimensions of drone technology and warfare. They show how drones generate particular ways of visualizing the spaces and targets of war while acting as tools to exercise state power. Essays include discussions of the legal justifications of extrajudicial killings and how US drone strikes in the Horn of Africa impact life on the ground, as well as a personal narrative of a former drone operator. The contributors also explore drone warfare in relation to sovereignty, governance, and social difference; provide accounts of the relationships between drone technologies and modes of perception and mediation; and theorize drones’ relation to biopolitics, robotics, automation, and art. Interdisciplinary and timely, Life in the Age of Drone Warfare extends the critical study of drones while expanding the public discussion of one of our era's most ubiquitous instruments of war.

The development of uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs) could potentially revolutionize how military force is used in the future. While the early operational experiences with UAVs show great promise, their full range of capabilities is largely unknown. However, it is clear that these technologies will enable military forces to use aerospace power more efficiently, which means at lower cost and with less risk to the humans who pilot aircraft. The broader question is the wisdom of using unmanned aerial vehicles for employing lethal force, and in particular which air power missions are best accomplished by uninhabited, piloted, and autonomous vehicles. The corollary is to examine the essential roles of human pilots or operators in aerospace operations in the twenty-first century. Since it is common to draw distinctions between vehicles with an on-board pilot, vehicles with off-board operators, and autonomous vehicles, this study explores the essential role of pilots and contrasts it with the roles of remotely piloted and autonomous vehicles. The assumption is that piloted, remotely piloted, and autonomous vehicles have advantages and disadvantages in military operations, and that these vary in strategic significance for different levels of conflict. Since it is essential for the U.S. defense establishment to consider the strategic and technological implications of these types of aerial vehicles, this study is devoted to addressing the issues raised by the new generation of aerial vehicles.

"Historically, the unmanned aircraft has been an important component in military operations. The adaptation of unmanned aerial technology for civil purposes has rapidly captured the interest of the masses. Governments and hobbyists were the initial beneficiaries of the adaptation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for civil use. With several industries such as agriculture, entertainment, real estate and delivery services using UAVs to perform essential functions, the proliferation of UAVs has become prominent in the commercial sector. The agile, affordable and accessible UAVs bring about many economic and social benefits. Nevertheless, the exponential growth of UAVs has also resulted in critical issues such as safety and privacy concerns. Due to the inherent differences between UAVs and manned aviation, the existing laws are inadequate to address the many issues that arise. Heeding to the rising problems, countries have resorted to strict and restrictive UAV regulations. UAVs are limited to segregated airspace and prevented from being fully integrated to a country's national airspace system. Strict regulations throttle innovation and discourage the nascent UAV industry. States are therefore burdened with demands to ensure aviation safety and uphold public rights to privacy on one hand, and demands to fully integrate UAVs to the national airspace on the other hand. The question is how national UAV regulations can address such a dichotomy. This thesis examines the development of national UAV regulations in selected countries and conducts a comparative analysis of the UAV regulations existing at the time of writing, to identify the best suited method to achieve regulatory balance. Upon the thesis findings it is recommended that sharing the regulatory responsibility between the government and the industry, increasing the involvement of the industry in drafting, implementing and enforcing regulations and thereby adopting the co-regulatory approach is the best way forward.

Tracking of Ground Mobile Targets by Quandrotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

An Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) is an aircraft without a human pilot on board. It can be controlled either autonomously by computers onboard, or using a remote control by a pilot on the ground, or in another vehicle. In both military and civilian sectors, UAVs are quickly obtaining popularity and expected to expand dramatically in the years to come. As UAVs gain more attention, one of the immediate requirements would be to have UAVs work as much autonomously as possible. One of the common tasks that UAVs would be engaged in is target tracking which has various potential applications in military field, law-enforcement, wildlife protection effort, and so on. This thesis focuses on development of a controller for UAVs to track ground target. In particular, this thesis focuses on quadrotor UAV, which is a multicopter that is lifted and propelled using four motors. Admittedly, several target tracking control methods have been developed in recent years. However, only a few of them have been applied on a quadrotor. Most of these tracking methods, particularly those based on Proportional Derivative (PD) control laws, which have been applied on quadrotors, are not time efficient due to practical acceleration constraint and a number of parameters that need to be tuned. The UAV control problem can be divided into 4 sub-problems: Position Control, Motor Control, Trajectory Tracking and Trajectory Generation. In this thesis, the dynamic equations of motion for quadrotors and a Proportional Derivative control law is derived to solve the problems of Position Control, Motor Control and Trajectory Tracking. A Proportional Navigation (PN) based switching strategy is proposed to address the problem of Trajectory Generation. The experiments and numerical simulations are performed using non-maneuvering and maneuvering targets. The simulation results show that the proposed PN based switching strategy not only carries out effective tracking but also results into smaller oscillations and errors when compared to the widely used PD tracking method. The switching strategy, as proposed as a solution to target tracking problem, leaves an important question with regard to when should the switching happen. It is intuitive that the time of switching will play a role in how fast the UAV converges to the target. The second problem considered in this thesis relates to the optimal time of switching that would minimize the positional error between the UAV and the target. An optimal switching strategy is proposed to obtain the optimal switching time for both non-maneuvering and maneuvering targets. Analytical solutions that generate trajectories based on PN and PD methods are used in this strategy. The numerical simulations validate the optimality, reliability, and accuracy of the proposed method for both non-maneuvering and maneuvering targets.

With the increased use of armed drones has come closer scrutiny of the legal and ethical dimensions. In the first chapter of this book, the author makes an assessment of the lethal use of drone technologies, measured in terms of their legality, morality, and overall effectiveness. Armed unmanned aerial vehicles -- combat drones -- have fundamentally altered the ways the United States conducts military operations aimed at countering insurgent and terrorist organisations. Drones may reduce risks to human soldiers but the question arises as to whether they permit the initiation or escalation of conflict by promoting civic disengagement. The authors of the second chapter offer an analysis of the dimensions surrounding this argument.

The increased military employment of remotely operated aerial vehicles, also known as drones, has raised a wide variety of important ethical questions, concerns, and challenges. Many of these have not yet received the serious scholarly examination such worries rightly demand. This volume attempts to fill that gap through sustained analysis of a wide range of specific moral issues that arise from this new form of killing by remote control. Many, for example, are troubled by the impact that killing through the mediated mechanisms of a drone half a world away has on the pilots who fly them. What happens to concepts such as bravery and courage when a war-fighter controlling a drone is never exposed to any physical danger? This dramatic shift in risk also creates conditions of extreme asymmetry between those who wage war and those they fight. What are the moral implications of such asymmetry on the military that employs such drones and the broader questions for war and a hope for peace in the world going forward? How does this technology impact the likely successes of counter-insurgency operations or humanitarian interventions? Does not such weaponry run the risk of making war too easy to wage and tempt policy makers into killing when other more difficult means should be undertaken? Killing By Remote Control directly engages all of these issues. Some essays discuss the just war tradition and explore whether the rise of drones necessitates a shift in the ways we think about the ethics of war in the broadest sense. Others scrutinize more specific uses of drones, such as their present use in what are known as "targeted killing" by the United States. The book similarly tackles the looming prospect of autonomous drones and the many serious moral misgivings such a future portends. "A path-breaking volume! BJ Strawser, an internationally known analyst of drone ethics, has assembled a broad spectrum of civilian and military experts to create the first book devoted to this hot-button issue. This important work represents vanguard thinking on weapon systems that make headlines nearly every day. It will catalyze debates policy-makers and military leaders must have in order to preserve peace and protect the innocent. - James Cook, Department Chair/Head of Philosophy, US Air Force Academy "The use of 'drones' (remotely piloted air vehicles) in war has grown exponentially in recent years. Clearly, this evolution presages an enormous explosion of robotic vehicles in war - in the air, on the ground, and on and under the sea. This collection of essays provides an invaluable contribution to what promises to be one of the most fundamental challenges to our assumptions about ethics and warfare in at least the last century. The authors in this anthology approach the ethical challenges posed by these rapidly advancing technologies from a wide range of perspectives. Cumulatively, they represent an essential overview of the fundamental ethical issues involved in their development. This collection makes a key contribution to an urgently needed dialogue about the moral questions involved." - Martin L. Cook, Adm. James B.

With Obama’s election to the presidency in 2008, many believed the United States had entered a new era: Obama came into office with high expectations that he would end the war in Iraq and initiate a new foreign policy that would reestablish American values and the United States’ leadership role in the world. In this shattering new assessment, historian Lloyd C. Gardner argues that, despite cosmetic changes, Obama has simply built on the expanding power base of presidential power that reaches back across decades and through multiple administrations. The new president ended the “enhanced interrogation” policy of the Bush administration but did not abandon the concept of preemption. Obama withdrew from Iraq but has institutionalized drone warfare—including the White House’s central role in selecting targets. What has come into view, Gardner argues, is the new face of American presidential power: high–tech, secretive, global, and lethal. Killing Machine skillfully narrates the drawdown in Iraq, the counterinsurgency warfare in Afghanistan, the rise of the use of drones, and targeted assassinations from al-Awlaki to Bin Laden—drawing from the words of key players in these actions as well as their major public critics. With unparalleled historical perspective, Gardner’s book is the new touchstone for understanding not only the Obama administration but the American presidency itself.
