The aim of this project is the definition of the necessary equipment installed in a closed test drone's laboratory in order to measure and characterize its aerodynamic performance, robustness and accuracy of the systems of control and guidance, the adjustment and calibration of certain types of payload, and the analysis of their behaviour in both aerodynamic and electromagnetic disturbances. Chapter one discusses the characterization and classification of UAVs and the actual legislation, that drastically limits the use of drones, which creates the need to have a closed space to perform tests, investigations, calibrations, collect data, or do simulations to predict the behaviour of the UAV. In Chapter two specifications of this infrastructure, optimal location and the possible uses are detailed. Chapters three, four and five deal with different tests to perform in the laboratory: classified in aerodynamics, control and guidance, and payload tests respectively. Due to its technological equipment, in the laboratory we can measure and characterize parameters such as stability and accuracy of the trajectory of the drone, position, altitude, velocity, and aerodynamic angles: and perform tests with different types of payloads. All these parameters can be measured in an atmosphere at rest or with disturbances generated in the laboratory, both aerodynamic and electromagnetic and analysing the behaviour of the aircraft being able to improve performance.
