Crash Course: Lessons Learned from Accidents Involving Remotely Piloted and Autonomous Aircraft
by Peter W. Merlin
Publisher: NASA 2013
Number of pages: 194
This volume contains an investigation of remotely piloted research vehicle (RPRV) and unmanned aircraft system (UAS) mishaps and will examine their causes, consequences, resultant corrective actions, and lessons learned. Most undesired outcomes usually do not occur because of a single event, but rather from a series of events and actions involving equipment malfunctions and/or human factors. This book comprises a series of case studies focusing mostly on accidents and incidents involving experimental aircraft.
