National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) had been working on research and development of transportation for the unmanned aircraft since 2004 (Cargo UAV). Recently, Requirement of capability to fling machine is expanded by brand-new application of UAV. Many kind of application as inspection, surveillance, aerial photo, aerial video shooting, aerial cargo transportation, OPV(optionally piloted vehicle) Precision location control and so on require new kinds of safety technologies. Technologies of small reliable turbine propulsion, crushable safety, safety take-off system and safety responsibility aggregation system are part of them and they are one of the solutions of flight reliability and crash safety toward human. In this paper, we report the progress of our technology development to improve the safety of these unmanned aerial vehicles.
