Unmanned Aircraft Systems

UAVS Design, Development and Deployment

€ 126.95

Unmanned Aircraft Systems delivers a much needed introduction to UAV System technology, taking an integrated approach that avoids compartmentalising the subject. Arranged in four sections, parts 1 3 examine the way in which various engineering disciplines affect the design, development and deployment of UAS.
