    WK58941

    1. Scope

    The purpose of this test method is to specify the apparatuses, procedures, and performance metrics necessary to quantitatively evaluate the system radio communications range without line-of-sight between the control station antennas and the aerial robot in flight. This test method applies to aerial systems operated remotely from a standoff distance appropriate for the intended mission. The system includes a remote operator in control of all functionality and any assistive features or autonomous behaviors that improve the effectiveness or efficiency of the overall system. This test method may be performed anywhere the specified apparatuses and environmental conditions can be implemented as described. Results should be considered within the context of related test methods in the Maneuvering suite when comprehensively evaluating robotic system capabilities.
