A Series of Symposia on Noise from UASs/UAVs
The second in the series will be held in the autumn of 2022. Details will be published here in due course.
The first symposium in the series was held remotely from Paris 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.
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.
