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.
