Abstract
This proposal seeks funding to develop a small unmanned air system capable of operating indoors, in confined spaces while detecting and recognizing airborne chemical compounds.All the obstacle avoidance, flight control, chemical detection and chemical recognition are done onboard the small unmanned system, in real-time, providing rapid feedback to the operator. The Detection and Recognition of Airborne Chemicals Onboard (DRACO) a Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) will provide first responders the ability quickly determines potential hazards, facility information, and items of interest using its onboard suite of sensors.
