First Responder UAS Endurance Challenge – Design Trade-Offs to Improve Flight Time
Terese Manley (Prize Challenge Manager, Public Safety Communications Research, NIST)
Paul Allen (CEO, Advanced Aircraft Company)
Date: Thursday, March 24
Time: 10:15 am - 11:30 am
Track: Emergency Comms: LMR, LTE, 5G
Format: Short Course
Vault Recording: TBD
The Challenge goal was to advance UAS technology for public safety. One barrier is to fly a drone for 90+ minutes while carrying a heavy payload. Since payload capacity, energy source, flight characteristics, and flight time are linked together through design trade-offs, PSCR is exploring ways to increased flight endurance and communications for first responders.
