UAV sensing: opportunities and challenges
U.S. Air Force 2nd Lt. David Feibus, from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, flies a DJI S1000 drone during the setup and calibration phase of an event at the Nevada National Security Site in Las Vegas last year. UAV-mounted laser sensors look well-suited to a range of defense and commercial applications, but challenges such as dealing with rotor airflow and turbulence remain.
