Gap or Risk Analysis for UAS

This project performed (1) a regulatory gap analysis regarding UAS propulsion systems and (2) a risk analysis of such systems. The second component of the research is a risk analysis consisting of hazard identification, risk assessment, analysis of risk exposure, and risk prioritization. Based on a thorough risk analysis, one can determine proper risk avoidance, risk transfer, and risk mitigation strategies.
