The session gives a brief recap of the work that NIST has been doing to help first responders use ground, air, and aquatic robots since 2001. This includes a summary of the work that has been accomplished to-date and the standards that have been published. Following this summary, the session focuses in more detail on the tests that are being developed for small UAS starting with the underlying theory behind them and then continuing with how the tests have evolved over time, videos of how the tests are setup and conducted from several points of view, forms for data collection, charts of some of the data that have been collected, and descriptions of how the tests are being used by various organizations. The session ends with a description of how some of the tests were used in the PSCR Flight and Payload Challenge in 2018 and how they might be used in PSCRs follow on First Responder UAS Endurance Challenge in 2021.
