As the use of commercial drones grows, there will be an increase in the desire for autonomous operations. This is due to the fact that commercial drones are often used to accomplish dull, dangerous, dirty, or different missions rather than subject humans to these types of activities. As drone use rises, so will the requirement to control as many as possible without human intervention, because the human cost is the highest. Sensor, communications, hardware, and software technologies have advanced to the point that innovative companies can offer semi- or fully autonomous vehicles that can be automatically launched and recovered to base stations or enclosures. These solutions are often referred to as “drone-in-a
