A technical review will evaluate the minimum acceptable performance characteristics of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) drones for stand-off detection systems and scenarios A hyper-spectral detection payload will be optimised for drone-borne operations and tested and validated under simulated flight conditions (boom/vehicle/balloon mounted tests). Dummy payloads will be manufactured to test the flight characteristics of the preferred COTS drone units.
Field tests will take place as part of WP6: Field Exercises, to evaluate their efficacy. All necessary documentation/licenses/certificates as well as pilots for flight authorization will be provided by the UAV provider in cooperation with the partners hosting the Field Exercises.
