UAS WITH INFLATABLE WINGS-HOW IMPORTANT A CERTIFICATION IS: JOURNEY TOWARDS THE FIRST STEP
Abstract: UAS with inflatable wings (UASWIW) is relatively a novel and complex arena and more to that is its certification process, which is more complex as well as challenging. This paper broadly presents a three-tier architecture to identify the potential hazards associated with UASWIW and proposes the necessary certifications required according to 14CFR. For the sake of simplicity, only a few aerodynamic potential hazards are taken into account and evaluated accordingly. The proposed analytic approach completely satisfies the rules and guidelines controlled by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and would prove a milestone for future researchers who wish to pursue in the same arena.
