NASA's Aero Aviation Programs operate many UASs, LaRC has a Cirrus SR-22 research aircraft to simulate autonomous UAS flight, other research UASs, e.g., AFRC's Ikhana collects atmospheric data. Most NASA UAS program can use our technology to set up their custom UAS site with ADS-B transition capability. The network platform design will allow interfaces to NASA's SSA software for their and ground control stations, simulator and its other NextGen R&D labs.
The FAA requires ADS-B for all US aircraft & drones flying in controlled airspace by 2020. The Total Available Market is over 10,000 small airports and UAS launch sites: agricultural, pipeline patrol, natural resources etc. We have strong interest from a weather sensors company and have discussed network development for commercialization with Google and Amazon.
