Miniaturized unmanned flying robots, also referred to as MUAVs (Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) open up completely new fields of innovative applications in the areas of civil security, cellular networks, surveying, entertainment and media. The AVIGLE project is based on the vision of a novel, widely applicable avionic service platform which supports multiple high-tech services by using open interfaces. Recent developments in the area of lithium polymer batteries and carbon fiber-reinforced plastic materials let MUAVs become an aerial platform, that can be equipped with a variety of sensors such as image or time of flight (ToF) cameras. Furthermore, it is also possible to mount communication technologies on the platform in order to let the MUAVs work as communication hot spots or relais at places where no cellular networks are available. In this paper we present a system of systems concept of an Unmanned Aerial System working as a service platform for different Concepts of Operations (ConOps).
