Keywords: robust autonomy, uas design & certification
With an increase in the level of autonomy, from remote pilot operations to a higher degree of autonomy, UAS must be able to either continue operating in the presence of faults and anomalous conditions, or shut down safely. This paper develops the concept of Robust Autonomy and a certification framework.
