NLR to establish a competencies profile for UAV operators

NLR to establish a competencies profile for UAV operators

The demand for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) is rising, both nationally and internationally. Unmanned aircraft can, for instance, be used to monitor dikes, inspect borders and conduct surveillance operations for the police and military. For civilian use, UASs especially offer technical, economic and environmental advantages. During military or paramilitary missions, a UAS is a cost-effective… Read more »
