ASSURE UAS Ground Collision Severity Evaluation

The UAS Ground Severity Evaluation research findings document the UAS platform characteristics related to the severity of Unmanned Aerial Systems ground collision based upon the literature research of over 300 publications from the automotive industry, consumer battery market, toy standards and other fields. The team reviewed available research and techniques used to address blunt force trauma, penetration injuries, and lacerations as the most significant threats to the public and crews operating Small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) platforms.
