The proposed architecture and tools have a wide variety of application for NASA • Perform safety analyses of sUAS flight plans as part of UTM project. • Integrate the high fidelity sUAS models into a modeling and simulation platform of choice • Investigate the safety and efficiency impacts of policy changes on sUAS operations • Test and validate Minimum Operational Performance (MOP) for sUAS platforms.
Commercial sUAS operators can use SAFE sUAS to test the safety of their flight plans before flying them. The FAA can use the models to introduce sUAS in existing modeling and simulation platforms. FAA can also test new technologies such as geofencing and study the impact they have on overall NAS safety metrics.
