Autonomous Air Traffic Reporting and Operations for UAS, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

A hardware/software solution for autonomous reporting of flight operations of a UAS is proposed. Such a system would enable the UAS to report identity, position, and other information to local human and autonomous traffic and air traffic controllers in an autonomous manner, in legacy terminology. This will improve the overall safety of UAS operations, and lead to easier integration of UASs into the national airspace system. In Phase I, the hardware will be developed and flight tested on a manned platform. In Phase II, refinements to the design will be implemented, and the system will be readied for production. More »
