The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) mission fulfilment grade is determined by performance capabilities of the system elements, such as UAV flight performance, sensor parameters, energy consumption and communication abilities. The mission simulation and evaluation tool chain developed at the Institute of Aircraft Design allows to assess the system effectiveness in terms of civil and commercial UAS applications and by this to evaluate trade off studies regarding the compatibility between the air vehicle, the sensor payload and the mission. The presented approach for mission performance evaluation is based on the calculation of an overall mission performance index implemented in the UAS design and optimization processes.
