Loughborough University Centre for Autonomous Systems 
is a specialised research group, focusing on research
   in aerospace control.

   Comprised of both students and research professionals, LUCAS
   has strong links to many industrial partners and primarily works
   on research for unmanned applications.

   In addition to industry backed research, a large part of LUCAS
   is post graduate study, allowing for investigation into areas not
   currently commercially explored.


In addition to an extensive indoor testing facility, LUCAS is the premier UK university based centre for outdoor UAV research. Using both in house and commercially developed autopilots, LUCAS has proven outdoor experience in outdoor research and demonstration flights.
