Drones in planetary science: recent results and future perspectives
Co-organized by TP
Convener: Akos Kereszturi | Co-conveners: Gian Gabriele Ori, Baptiste Chide

This session is to oversee the current and fast changing roles of drones (unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs) and resemble mission types in planetary science. The presentations will provide examples, experiences and case studies how various drones have been used and planned to be applied in planetary science in the future, what type of instruments could be carried onboard and which strategy to follow in their planning. Among the targets of drones Venus, Mars, Titan and Earth analogues provide rich and diverse conditions to work under, while the understanding of applied technologies from this session help to formulate next steps.
