The basic setup of a small UAS consists of an operator, a remote control, a C2 link and the aircraft or ‘drone’ itself. Larger systems, such as the one depicted in Figure 1, may also incorporate a dedicated Ground Control Station (GCS) for Launch and Recovery as well as a Mission Control Element (MCE. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) (or uncrewed aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone) is an aircraft without a human pilot on board and a type of unmanned are a component of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS); which include a UAV, a ground-based controller, and a system of communications between the flight of UAVs may operate with various degrees of autonomy: .
