Abstract: Over the past decade, there has been a rapid development of unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The trend and current developments lead to an increase in the use of UAS. The operations of UAS and their use significantly increase every day. This article provides solutions and options for introducing a flight safety sensor system and auto-landing system for UAS. The reason is to ensure effective completion of their mission without the involvement of a qualified operator (pilot) in the control station. The problems and characteristics of these systems and the algorithms through which they successfully perform their tasks are analysed in the article. In the article has been proposed an architectural realisation of a flight safety sensor system and an auto-landing system for UAS.

Keywords: flight safety; sensor system; technical condition; auto-landing system; unmanned aerial system; UAS; conical scanning; pseudo-conical scanning.
