AERPAW User Manual

Welcome to the AERPAW User Manual website!  AERPAW is the first wireless research platform envisioned and built to allow studying the convergence of advanced wireless technologies (such as 5G) and autonomous drones.  This User Manual is your one-stop reference as an AERPAW User (an Experimenter, including those with PI roles).

You can access all the individual pages from the navigation bar at the left of the site. Alternatively, you can use the "Search" feature at the top right of the page to search for specific content that is available in the user manual

This User Manual is maintained by the AERPAW team; Users (and everybody else) only have read access.

Note: On January 3rd, 2023, the AERPAW Portal completed major maintenance, upgrade, and migration.  As of January 20th, some sections of this User Manual are undergoing a corresponding major revision.  Until this revision is complete, sections of this Manual may present inconsistent or outdated information.   We ask our User community to bear with us over this major upgrade.

Happy reading, and happy AERPAW usage!  We hope your research for which you use AERPAW receives all success.  If AERPAW is helpful to you, we would appreciate it if you write to us about it, or post about your experience on
