MetadataShow full item record
"This publication presents a concise summary of the findings and recommendations of the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) multinational Unmanned Aircraft Systems Expert Group (UASEG). This paper is intended to provide a succinct but authoritative and informative overview of barriers to UAS- based research in the Arctic and, especially, recommendations for facilitating the utilization of UAS for scientific data collection in the region. All eight Arctic countries participate in the UASEG. Group members include civil aviation authorities, experts experienced in UAS flight, and scientists interested in using UAS for Arctic environmental monitoring. The group is co-chaired by Rune Storvold, of the Northern Research Institute and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and Clifford Sweatte, of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. The ultimate goal of the expert group is to facilitate the routine use of UAS to conduct Pan-Arctic scientific observing missions. AMAP would like to express its appreciation to the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the U.S. Department of State, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The AMAP Working Group is pleased to share here the vision of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Expert Group and to present their recommendations to the Arctic Council and the wider public."
