Abstract

Autonomous drones operate in an airspace populated by other drones and manned aviation. Unmanned traffic management (UTM) systems are necessary to safely and efficiently integrate drones into the existing airspace traffic. Existing UTM systems however cannot resolve airspace conflicts without risking altering critical elements of planned drone operations. To enable the resolution of conflicts while ensuring that drone missions still fulfill their purpose, we propose DOTS, a declarative language to specify drone missions. From this specification, DOTS generates a planning system that can dynamically replan drone flights without compromising the purpose of the mission.
