A Series of Symposia on Noise from UASs/UAVs by INCE/Europe in association with CidB - Centre d'Information sur le Bruit
The Second International Symposium on Noise from UASs/UAVs/eVTOLs will be held remotely on 27th, 28th and 29th June 2022.
The decision to go fully remote will disappoint some of you, but it was clear from the abstracts that most of our authors want to present remotely. This means that much of the reason for having the symposium on-site - interaction between authors and delegates - would not apply.
The first symposium in the series was held on-line in October 2020. It was a huge success and you can read more about it, download material and find out what people thought about it on the conference page in past conferences.
Abstracts from Quiet Drones 2020 can be viewed in the 2020 Programme Book
Enormous progress has been made on drone technologies in the last decade and the number of professional drones is increasing dramatically and is now much higher than the number of conventional aircraft.
Safety, security and privacy have controlled the development of drones up to now but noise has become an issue in residential areas and environmentally sensitive areas such as National Parks. On the other hand ultra-silent machines represent a problem for privacy and security.
The Symposium provided a venue for researchers on drone noise to meet with manufacturers, users and those engaged in designing innovative applications for this new technology.
