“Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and gliders, also known as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), are classified as Remotely Piloted Vehicles, and are rapidly gaining ground globally as they have revolutionary potential in their diverse applications,” says mechanical engineer, Damian Mooney, who is one of South Africa’s few specialists in Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). He has been a commercial pilot for 20 years and is a member of the Mandela University Autonomous Operations (MAO) Group in the Faculty of EBEIT, which is working on a range of pioneering drones and gliders to support the research conducted by the university’s scientists and engineers.
